Love!! Why didn't we go here sooner? While waiting for an outdoor table, a gentlemen told us what a wonderful restaurant it was and that he and his wife were regulars. Wide drink selection. Enchiladas were great. Fajitas fantastic. Stuffed jalopenos yummy appetizers. Several tables went for the margaritas as did our table. Nice outdoor seating.

This place in pretty incredible! I have never had Mexican food like this before. Fresh, unique, delicious, so flavorful! I think my hubby and I kept going "mmm!" after every bite! I had Chicken Enchiladas and he had the Beef Burrito. HUGE portions! My Pineapple Margarita (live a little!) was so yummy!! The best part was the homemade salsa and chips. I have never had salsa like that. It was beyond fresh.The taste was unique and we actually asked for another basket of chips and seconds on the salsa! We were seated outside on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. EVERYONE there had masks on and all social distancing protocols were firmly in place. We have only just started to go out to eat on occasion and this is of utmost importance to us! We were finishing up when a lovely women came out to sanitize tables and chairs outside and tidy up. She was smiling and working very hard. I said excuse me but tell the owner that we LOVE the food here! Well, she was the owner! She talked to us for about 10 minutes telling us of how all the recipes were her own and she originally came from Mexico. We have already been back to El Arroyo and plan to keep going back! I highly recommend it for the best Mexican food and stellar service around!

Review №19

Having lived near Mexico almost my entire life I have very high expectations for authentic Mexican food... El Arroyo is one the best Mexican food restaurants in the state of NH! I used DOORDASH for my first order, and cannot wait until it opens up again for dine in! I will be a frequent flyer!!!The steak tacos come with traditional onion, cilantro, and a wedge of lime.. the steak is tender and melts in your mouth! Jalapeño poppers are HUGE and delicious! Burrito was exceptional.

Amazing (and authentic) Mexican food! Staff are super nice and extremely attentive, and the restaurant is very clean. Can't wait to go back!

Review №21

Food was Great & The service was phenomenal

Review №22

My husband and I love this restaurant! It has it all; a warm and friendly greeting as soon as you walk through the door, excellent attentive service ( Willy is awesome!), Beautiful decor, and the MOST delicious Mexican food in the Northeast. I love that it is family run and they put pride and authenticness into each dish they make. The Margarita's are huge and refreshing! Not to mention there are so many to choose from. Don't forget to try the Chorizo cheese dip. We ended up putting that stuff on EVERYTHING! It was mouth-watering! Couldn't help it! I love how there is consistency every time we visit El Arroyo. They never fail to make us very happy!

Review №23

Bad gastric distress within hours of eating here.

Review №24

Great food super portions!

Review №25

Hands down the best Mexican restaurant around! Their customer service is awesome, and every time we get takeout the order is always correct and so fresh. I'm not usually a salsa person, but I absolutely love theirs! Not to mention their pico de gallo and guacamole - amazing. If I could give them more than 5 stars I would!!

Review №26

This place is a hidden gem, if your ever in the area and are looking for authentic cuisine, this place is great. Family run business, the food is awesome, the service is great. Will definitely be back. Thanks again!

Review №27

Fantastic food, great family run place with good margs

Review №28

The guy working cinco de mayo deserves a raise!!! Thank you for a great meal.

Review №29

Amazing food with amazing service. I've been here for several work meetings as well as dinner with friends. It's tucked away on the backside of one of the buildings so that can make it a little hard to find for first timers but overall its great!

Review №30

Cozy warm great service...lots of menu choices. Many margaritas too! Hot and Fresh food. The house salsa is to die for and guacamole so good!

Review №31

Good food and great service!

Review №32

Great place! I've only been once, as I'm not from the area. I wouldn't have expected anything like this in such a rural part of New Hampshire! It was even busy on a Monday night! Excellent menu, food, and service!

Review №33

Great place tucked in Salzberg Square. Carnitas el Arroyo was AMAZING! Even met the grandmother who came out to thank us for enjoying our meal. Hidden gem! Must visit!

Review №34

Pretty good little spot in an interesting plaza.. Margs are reasonably priced, but do not seem as strong as some other Mexican joints in the area. What we have had so far on the menu has been pretty solid. Prices are what you would expect, affordable with good portions.

Review №35

Very tasty authentic food. There to tier hot sauce is very hot. I tried it but couldn't sustain throughout the meal.Nice atmosphere.

Review №40

The beef tongue tacos are incredible, I love this place

Review №41

By far the best Mexican restaurant around. Traditional style fare. Delicious salsa & tacos. A big menu to choose from. Friendly staff & nice atmosphere. Reasonably priced. Definitely worth going here over the places that are a little closer to Milford or Nashua.

Review №42

It was some of the best Mexican food I've had in NH.

Review №43

Chicken creme was delicious, with rice and beans. Chicken was all white meat, and very tender, and tasty with mushrooms and sauce.

Review №44

Amazing food, great service!

Review №45

Been here lots of times now. Hope it stays! Know this location is tough for restaurants, so go and support them! You won't be disappointed. Food is fresh and authentic. Family run and they work hard to please. Margaritas are delish and they have a wide variety. Great addition to the Amherst area!

Review №46

Unfortunately, my experience was less than good. Went with a friend, first time for both of us. I ordered a Steak Fajita which tasted fine, but the waitress never brought the tortilla which is usually part of the meal. Had to inform her that she had forgotten to bring it to the table. So, I told her to skip it! Then, my friend ordered a taco and an enchilada; the taco had no flavor, and the enchilada had a red sauce on it which tasted terrible. Could not determine what the taste was, only that it tasted horrible. Service was very poor even though there were only two other tables being waited on while we were there. One of my pet peeves in a place of business is poor service and this restaurant ranked high in this department. Would not recommend this place to any of my friends!

Review №47

My favorite Mexican cuisine! Wonderful atmosphere, very comfortable and the waitstaff is great!

Review №48

Review №49

Super friendly owners and staff, great service, and great food. I sincerely hope this place succeeds. They aren't allowed to put any large signage out front, so spread the word!

Review №50

Great food and great ambiance! The best nachos I think I ever had. Passion Fruit Margarita was sooo good!! Very friendly staff. Looking forward to eating there again.

Review №51

Margaritas were excellent with good chips and salsa.

Review №52

Review №53

Excellent food, excellent service. and very nice place.

Review №54

Super friendly staff and positively delicious food. Remember your swim floaties if you order a margarita; they're big.

Review №55

Have been for lunch a dozen times. Best Mexican food I know in the area. Very consistent and the food doesn't sit, always hot AF. Try the fried chimi, full of meat. Fluffy rice is well seasoned. Light refried beans are great maybe a little more seasoning on them is my only suggestion. Nicest staff and owners you will ever meet! HUGE house burrito is very good too.

Review №56

Delicious, great service ! Never disappointed

Review №57

Great, authentic Mexican food! Fantastic!

Review №58

The food is consistently awesome! From the beef tongue tacos to the chimichangas, it's always delicious!! The house margaritas are fantastic!

Review №59

Disappointed with our food. Lacked flavor. Not used to, nor liked shredded beef in a taco and on nachos.

Review №60

The food and service are amazing!

Review №61

THE best Mexican restaurant in the area! First visit yesterday and we will be back often. Family run business with Mom overseeing the whole operation. They are her recipes and her family is involved in cooking, waiting, and making sure your satisfied with the experience. All ingredients are fresh and dishes are made to order. The selection of salsas is outstanding! From mild to very spicy they are all great! It was a Friday night and the restaurant and lounge area filled up fast. As long as Mom is making sure the food and service are excellent this restaurant will continue to thrive. Menu includes standards such as tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and fajitas. But they also have their house specials which you must try. Full bar with a nice selection of cerveca, margaritas, and all the standard liquor selections. Thank you Mom and your son is an awesome ambassador and helpful waiter. Thanx!

Review №62

Review №64

Great food, great service.

Review №65

Amazing food️ The passion fruit margaritas are delicious!!

Review №66

Service was fu&$% HORRID. We waited 15 minutes for our waiter to take our drink order. Then another 20 minutes to take our food order, as a GROUP OF WAITERS INCLUDING OURS SAT AT A TABLE NEAR BY AND TALKED TO EACHOTHER. SERIOUSLY? We were there for almost two hours. He never checked on us, asked us if we needed anything. NOTHING. And we were pretty much the only ones there. Should have been a clue. Never agian.

Review №67

Great local food and staff was very friendly to our family.

Review №68

Review №71

First visit-food was delicious! Menu has something for everyone. The pico-queso was delicious!! I had the chilis and the portion was huge! Great value for the money.

Review №72

Always a great meal. Mexican done right, get the queso and flour tortillas!

Review №73

My wife and I stopped in for dinner. There is a bar and a cozy separate seating area. Our waitress was friendly and brought our drinks quickly and our food came promptly but perhaps because it was busy we had to flag her down for a drink refill and then to get the check. My wife got the fahita salad with steak but was disappointed that there wasn't more seasoning on the steak and the fact that the iceberg lettuce was still wet, almost dripping wet. I got the three enchiladas plate with chicken, ground beef, and pork and with salsa Verde and I found my choice to be very flavorful. My iced tea was the team deal and I enjoyed it. We will be back to give El Arroyo another try.

Review №74

Great Mexican food!!

Review №75

I went there tonight with my wife she order the fajitas I ordered the Flauntas, my wife asked for shredded cheese to put on the fajitas, well when we received the bill they charged $2.25 for a small thing of cheese we were upset if she told us before hand it was $2.25 we would've told her never mind when we spoke to the waitress she did nothing, the Flauntas was $ 12 dollars it looked more like a taquitos and was only 3 of them they came with a small portion of of rice with lettuce and sour cream the bill came to $40Dollars, there are plenty of other restaurants in the area that you can go to and get better food and service, my wife and I think the food was bland This is the first time I've done a review for any restaurant online, sad to say I will never go back again and I love to help out small business owners there are plenty of smaller restaurants near by that I'll be eating at instead,

Review №76

This is genuine Mexican, taste is delicious.

Review №77

Friendly service. Good food.

Review №78

Awesome place I hope they do well

Review №79

Waiter was being very expressive about being under staffed, honestly didnt notice anything on my end just the venting. Ordered burrito a la suiza the carnitas were seemed they weren't crisped enough. After the food came, waiter was hyper vigilant to check on how we were and it interrupted our conv a few times just made it kinda awkward. Honestly the white suiza sauce taste more pasty than creamy and i only took a few bites. Came on a memorial sunday eve, so maybe we'll give it one more shot

Review №80

If I could give them more than 5 stars I would. The food is amazing. The staff is friendly, I love the atmosphere. Just had the best chimichanga I have had in my life. The Chimichanga del Mar with a perfectly crisp tortilla shell, yummy shrimp, the best Mexican rice I have ever had and a delicious cheese sauce. It also came as two huge chimichangas. This was my 2nd trip and we will be back. Outstanding place, hope you are here for years to come.

Review №81
