One of Santa Barbara's favorite Mexican restaurants is celebrating another milestone: 20 years in business.
Los Arroyos opened its first location in a 590-square-foot space in downtown Santa Barbara on West Figueroa Street, and two years later expanded next door into to its current location at 14 W. Figueroa St.
“Los Arroyos stands for family, and I am grateful to all the employees who have become family, and the community that has made Los Arroyos a part of theirs,” said co-owner Tony Arroyo.
Los Arroyos serves the original Arroyo family recipes.
Arroyo has had a passion for food since he was a young boy. Inspired by the culinary magic his mom performed in the kitchen and the delicious, authentic recipes she taught and passed down to him, Arroyo always had the dream of one day opening a restaurant, according to a news release.
Since 1999, Los Arroyos has opened restaurants in Montecito (2004), Camarillo (2009), Indiana (2016), Goleta (2017), and most recently in Solvang (2018).
