A Destination in the Santa Ynez Valley
Family owned and operated restaurants since 1999 in Santa Barbara, Camarillo, Montecito, Indiana and now
the Santa Ynez Valley.
Los Arroyos Mexican Restaurant and Take Out is a family-owned and operated restaurant since 1999 with four locations in Santa Barbara, Montecito, Camarillo and Goleta.
We serve fresh, homemade Mexican food crafted each day from the finest ingredients. Tony’s original recipes offer a variety of dishes from traditional fare such as Sopes, Tamales, and Pozole to modern cuisine including the Mama’s Salad with grilled vegetables, our Ceviche with fresh fish, and the Garden Burrito.
Los Arroyos Mexican Restaurant and Take Out first opened March 1999 in a small 600 square foot space in Downtown Santa Barbara. Five years later, we opened our second location in Montecito on Coast Village Road. After another five years, we opened our third location in Camarillo at the Premium Outlets. We opened our fourth location in May 2017 in Goleta. We employ many Arroyo family members and friends that have worked for us for so long - they are like family. Many of our employees have been with us for more than 10 years, and much of our success is due to them. We are proud and honored to be a local favorite, and we will continue to prepare excellent Mexican food from fresh, homemade ingredients every day.

FOUNDER, OWNER AND CHEF
Jose “Tony” Arroyo came to the United States in 1984 at the age of 13 from his hometown of La Piedad, Michoacán, Mexico. Tony’s determination matched his passion for food, and in 1999 his dream of opening his first location became a reality. Family is the cornerstone of Tony’s philosophy in life and business. All his recipes are inspired from the home cookings of his Mother, “Mamá Toña,” and his biggest achievement is being a father to Diego, the future leader of Los Arroyos
