I hadn't eaten at El Arrieros is quite awhile, partially due to not working in Kokomo anymore. We had a large family gathering for my brother-in-law's birthday, and it was great! With our large group, the wait wasn't too long. Loved the food and the chips & salsa! Will be back!

My husband and I frequently dine at El Arrieros. Our children/grandchildren came into town for my husband's 65th birthday. I stopped by El Arrieros to see about making a reservation for our group of 12 for Sunday after church. The friendly gals didn't think they could make a Sunday reservation but took my name and phone number. After church, I... More

El Arrieros has great Mexican food at decent prices. The nachos are delicious and my personal favorite meal is the ACP chicken! Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday they have jumbo margaritas on special for $5 in a variety of tasty flavors and Monday they have their original smaller margaritas for $1.99!

We had the falutas, they were good, but we thought the beef was better than the chicken. Flavor of the beef was very good. Service was excellent. The waiter was back many times to see if we needed anything. Only problem was it was too much food! Couldn't eat it all, and because we were travelling through, we couldn't take... More
