One in the party had the prime rib. It was the thinest prime rib I have seen but he reported it was quite good. The rest of the party ordered the salmon with barbeque sauce. I didn't taste any barbeque at all, not sure what the sauce was. Just average. The salad was the best part.

Local favorite and for a very good reason. Exceptional restaurant, even unexpected, in this small town. The menu was extensive. I enjoyed a steak with baked potato, a Saint Pauli Girl beer, and a house salad. We ordered two desserts with Irish Coffee. The creme brulee was one of the best I have ever had. And the tiramisu was exceptionally... More

Had a good meal of catfish but our meal was twice as expensive as La Cocina and not twice as good. The restaurant was nearly empty but we were seated right next to a loud party at a tiny table that did not even have room for our bottle of wine. Our ambience was not consistent with an upper end...

Although prices are a bit steep here, it is a great place to dine. I had the filet with crab, and it was delicious. They had a great list of desserts but we were so full from dinner that we declined. The staff is friendly and courteous and our server was very accommodating. Lovely dining experience!

What a pleasant surprise to find this gem in a town otherwise known for its plethora of Denny's, etc. Great food and nice service. Loved the ambiance. Fun! The wine list was astonishing. If I had any negative commentary it would be that the entrees were a bit overpriced. I mean, $48.00 for a high end steak. Eeeek. These are... More

The place is like stepping into the 1960s and very retro. I love that the lighting is dim, but even in the candle light you can tell it needs some cleaning. The food was decent and I would return, but for the 40 dollar per steak price it could be better. Also, our waitress was not the greatest, but not... More

We have been going here for many years and it is always a fun stop. From the great chips and dip to the mounted trophy heads and the cholla cactus furniture it all makes a fun stop. Never had such huge sopapillas.

I am not at all impressed with Los Arcos, and it too, is primarily another local water hole for folks who drink. The food served is mediocre and the service substandard.

There was nothing spectacular about the food yet the prices were WAY high! Just did not expect that in a small town like Truth or Consequences..... Surprised they are still in business with prices like that to be honest. Really $50 for a steak!
