We went to Café Pulido's off of Matlock and Mayfield Rd., in Arlington last week. We both got the beef fajitas from the lunch special. You can get the lunch specials for a dollar extra after 4 p.m. The prices are still very good. The fajitas were very good, and it came with rice, beans, and pico de gallo. We... More

This is the first time we have been here in a long time. The food is so so and the service was not good. As soon as we ordered water the waitress lost interest. She never told us her name and took forever to bring us our check and it was not even very crowded. This is a popular place... More

This little place has good Texmex. The margaritas were great. Their special of the night, enchiladas, were super cheap. I had burritos and the portions were generous. Not fond of the chili on top of the beef and bean burrito but still very good. My cousin is a regular and the wait staff remembers them and has food on the... More

Let me start by saying that I LOVE the original Pulido's location in Fort Worth. I don't even need a menu when I walk in; I just get full order of meat and guacamole nachos every time. (If it ain't broke, don't fix it.) I did that two weeks ago at this Arlington location, and my wife ordered carne asada... More

Not a bad place for a beer and nachos. The price was decent, the staff were very friendly and the place was clean. I'll try it again.

I had the grilled chicken breast with zucchini. The chicken wasn't seasoned well so I ordered a side of Ranchera sauce and poured it on top. They really should serve the chicken in this Ranchera sauce all the time because it is soo delicious and flavorful. It seemed to me a chicken broth base full of tomatoes, onions and peppers... More

We used to enjoy eating here when in that neighborhood. After about a year away, our experience was a disappointment. The décor is very tired, dated and doesn't even look clean anymore. Service was slow and inattentive. The Margarita was good, as was the Salsa, The beef was fatty and in general the meal was uninteresting. I'd love to go... More
