This place rarely disappoints. Food is always good & drinks are on point. Authentic Mexican cuisine. Avoid the bacon wrapped shrimp- unless you want to chip a tooth. They are fried so hard. My husband loves them though & swears it's just me lol. Other than that it's pretty much deliciousness. Service is decent. I'm a lifer since the downtown... More

I was here for a class reunion and although the location was top notch, the food wasn't all that great. You get what you pay for.

I stop in here every now and then. Parking lot always seems full but there are always spaces open. There are separate areas for the bar and the restaurant. I've never sat in the restaurant area so I can't comment on that area. I always eat at the bar. You get the traditional chips & salsa which aren't bad. I... More

Service is slow, we were basically ignored when we needed drink refills. Business meeting. Beans weren't very tasty. I threw most of my food away and left hungry.

Arroyo's is the best Mexican Food anywhere. I have lived in Portland, Fresno, Las Vegas, Stockton and Sacramento and this is the best of all by far. Make sure that you ask for the original hot salsa. It is dark, almost black. This is because of the roasted chilies. They do not put this on the table unless you ask... More

We've been eating at Arroyo's since they were located in downtown Stockton back in the day. Many people say they're food is not the same since they moved to March Lane. I disagree. It is a great location, lots of parking, nice window views, Mariachi music on some days of the week, good for big parties, good service, still good... More

Arroyo's has been an established Stockton restaurant for many decades. I first experienced their excellent (and modestly priced) cuisine in 1983 when located on South El Dorado Street. The current location on Quail Lake is scenic and a great place for a date. Mariachi bands play on many evenings and the happy hour drink menu includes great $3 margaritas. Also... More
