DINING - Restaurant Los Arcos

Dishing It Up Right!


For the last five years, Restaurant Los Arcos and the Happy Jackass Lounge have been a family-oriented dining establishment specializing in American and Italian cuisine. Owners Cliff and Sue White have been in this location on the south side of the arches entering San Felipe for three years. Both Cliff and Sue are longtime residents of San Felipe, Sue for more than 25 years, and have extensive experience in the restaurant business.



Over the last year, they've been making some big changes; they've changed their menu, decor, prices, staff and much more. What hasn't changed is the full-service bar and the coldest beer in town.


The menu features great burgers, chicken and dumplings, chicken-fried steak, homemade fries, and, if you're a steak lover, Angus beef from the U.S. Local fish and shrimp dishes are featured as specials. The Italian cuisine includes an All-You-Can-Eat Spaghetti dinner, plus calzones, fettuccini alfredo and a new concoction called Italian puffs, and, of course, their fresh pizzas round out the menu.


The Happy Jackass, the bar attached to the restaurant, keeps things lively by offering Karaoke and various live music other nights of the week; it also hosts the semimonthly San Felipe Lions Club meetings. “Having activities for the patrons helps both the bar and the restaurant during slow times,” says Cliff.


The lounge has satellite TV on four big screens and features all the sports you could want, including four different NFL games every Sunday. NASCAR is always on one of the screens. The staff is pleasant, the atmosphere is relaxing, the prices are moderate and the portions are very generous. All in all, you will enjoy your dining experience at Los Arcos Restaurant and Lounge.


Stop by Los Arcos Restaurant and The Happy Jackass and say hello to Cliff and Sue. You can’t miss them, they’re on the right as you enter San Felipe. Tell them you saw them in Mexico Living!
