Arriba Arriba

Don’t let the name scare you—this Hell’s Kitchen standby serves reliably tasty Tex-Mex cuisine in an infectious, casual and surprisingly stylish atmosphere. Refreshingly absent of the overrated ceviches and inflated prices of faux-upscale Mexican eateries, the dishes at Arriba Arriba! are salty, goopy and—for the most part—delicious. Cheese, refried beans, jalapeños and guacamole coat every chip in the nachos. Standbys like fajitas, pork tinga tacos and enchiladas suiza are simple and satisfying. Even more creative fare, like the crepa de camerones—two flour tortillas stuffed with cheese and sautéed shrimp in a chili cream sauce—are spot-on. Soft amber lighting and a stellar mix of disco, ’80s and hip-hop keep the mood festive and fun.

Consistently loud, but consistently delicious. If you can put up with the music and margarita-fueled high-volume conversations, the food is worth it. I recommend the $10 combo deal that gets you a generous portion full of rice, beans, and a tasty item of your choice. And don't forget the guacamole!

Do you like oversized plates of tasty (and cheese-covered) Mexican favorites? Do you like your cocktails human-head-sized? Can handle a lot of noise and a squishy wait at the bar? Then Arriba, Arriba is for you.
