El Arroyo Mexican Restaurant was built on a passion for good food and close family. Good authentic food that is. And, when you combine a strong passion that is shared by sisters – well, let’s just say nothing stands in the way. Since its inception in 2018, El Arroyo has quickly become the go-to for the best Mexican food in Amherst and surrounding towns. Why? Well, we hate to brag, but our family recipes come from generations of cooks that knew their way around the kitchen. But first, let us share that our name, El Arroyo, comes from a small creek in the village our mother grew up in. Did we mention our fondness for family?

With patience and time, these same family recipes have been taught and handed down. Now, we are proud to share what our family has enjoyed for decades. Good, authentic Mexican food, cooked to perfection, and served the way it was meant to be served. And while you find many of the same offerings that other Mexican restaurants in the area have on their menu, be prepared to find many more unique items – like Pezca del Arroyo, a customer favorite.

Did someone say margaritas?

Let’s face it, when it comes to authentic Mexican restaurants, nothing pairs better with your meal than a margarita. At El Arroyo, we agree entirely, which is why we proudly serve up some of the area’s most unique and thirst-quenching margaritas! Sixteen of them, in fact. Yes, you read that correctly.

Here, we not only love a good homemade meal, but we also appreciate a good ‘ole hand-shaken margarita to go alongside our dish. From traditional to cucumber, spicy to fruity, when you come to El Arroyo, expect to find the unexpected.

Always welcoming, always fresh, always satisfying. And, of course, always fun!
