After 6 years we are back to Kent, first timers for a late lunch; excellent draft beer selections, tortilla soup has the best presentation in gold rimed china bowl, cheese enchiladas lunch special very good, be sure to ask for the special hot salsa. Joel was the perfect host. We will be back for happy hour and dinner.

Stopped by after work one eve. I think there was one other dinner in there. I ordered the house Margarita and CAMARONES AL MOJO DE AJO. Was served the drink right away - dinner came surprisingly quick. The Margarita was very good. One of the best I've had in a long time. Not too sweet, actually had tequila in it.... More

The food, when it finally did arrive was cold, the service was slow even though there were only a few tables filled. The food, maybe because it wasn't warm, was not very tasty.

Finally stopped by this place after seeing it opened for a while. My wife and I went for their "Happy hour". We got a couple of cold beers and a plate of nachos to eat. It was not very crowded, may about half full, but the service was really really slow. The nachos came, and they were just warm -... More

Arturo's is a truly authentic Mexican restaurant in the heart of Des Moines. Their menu has many delicious dishes from regions throughout Mexico and in addition to many Mexican beers they have a large selection of tequilas.

I've been driving by for about a year, with intentions on trying it out. I had my Entertainment coupon so gave it a try. Are we ever glad we did! Nice comfortable atmosphere, choice between tables or booths. I always order chicken fajitas wherever I go, and these were the very best! Not swimming in grease like so many places.... More

Awesome!! This place is my favorite restaurant around. Treat yourself to an Arturos burrito. I get mine with Chipotle sauce.

The hubs absolutely LOVED the tuna wasabi quesadilla and the ceviche. The chicken enchiladas were delicious. Don't go if you like lots of sauce and cheese like American style "Mexican" food, you won't find nachos on the menu! Fast and friendly service too.

The building itself was nice and the service was good... but the food was TERRIBLE. First and foremost, the salsa was SWEET. This wasn't mango or a chutney, it was their regular house salsa and IT WAS SWEET. No heat AT ALL and a lack of spice and flavor beyond sweet. WHAT KIND OF MEXICAN RESTAURANT HAS SWEET SALSA? Disgusting!... More

Had dinner with my son after work one night. All of the food was good -he had enchiladas, I had fajitas and the food weathered well as leftovers the next day. The TV turned to sit com channel was a distraction, place was not busy and service was attentive but not pushy.
