Our Story



Since 1975, El Arroyo has been serving up Tex-Mex with a side of laughs on our famous marquee sign that stands on the corner of West 5th and Campbell in Austin, Texas. The Last Queso Stop Before a Bunch of Yoga Studios - over the years we've covered every food pun imaginable while never forgetting witty commentary on current events. The face(s) behind the daily marquee messages remains a secret for now... But we're always happy to take submissions from customers and internet.

We've been serving great Tex-Mex food in Austin for more than 25 years and we've loved every second of it. Thanks, Austin, and here's to 25 more!
