Had a hankering for some Mexican food on an overnite stay in Colorado Springs. Decided to try Arceo's since it was close to my hotel. Wasn't real hungry so looked over the appetizer menu and decided on the quesadilla with beef and cheese. Service was fast and the two quesadillas were not the usual 6inch diameter tortillas but were 10... More

I went there for lunch with some old friends. Everyone in Colorado loves Mexican food and you can't fool a Colorado native. Quick service and good portions. We enjoyed it.

Went here based on a high rating and expected it to be like some of the small family Mexican restaurants we know and love. The water they served had floaty things in it. They took a while to come get our order. The green chili was not my favorite. And our sons chicken nuggets were cold in the center. Almost... More

I picked this place while ready TA. I wasn't on their page tho, I was reading another restaurant's reviews and some guy said to not go to that place, but hit a local place called Arceo's, so I looked it up! Doubletree has a free shuttle to anywhere within 3 miles, so they took us over there and we ubered... More

My sister and I had the tostada con shrimp ceviche and a dessert. I was surprised at the ample serving size of ceviche for the moderate price - and it was delicious and loaded with shrimp. The salsa they served as an appetizer, free of charge, was also very good and chunky. My dessert, the xango, was to die for... More

Arceo's has 2 locations in the Springs - both get 5 thumbs up from our Mexican food family of picky eaters. Excellent spot for lunch, very fast service and always friendly. A locals secret for sure. Prices are great as well, and the portions quite large, so much so that you will need a walk after you eat We have... More

The food here is ok nothing spectacular. It is reasonably priced though. There was a rumbling noise in the restaurant that was annoying. Not sure what it was from. They have another location in Colorado Springs as well.

They have 2 locations, but we only ever eat here since it's local...very friendly, fast service from a family-owned place. Their chips and fresh salsa--made daily--are so good! Daily lunch specials for $5---cannot beat them--and the portions are massive. Try the pork burrito in green chile sauce! The dining room is always packed--so you know it's good! The building is...

Asked a local at the hotel and he recommended this place. So we went. Was not disappointed. Food was authentic and enjoyable. Price was good as well. Don't look like much on the outside but is worth the stop. Drinks were reasonable.
