THE TRADITION BEGINS IN 1977
When the first link was created in the city of Culiacán, Sinaloa.
The name of Los Arcos is an offering to the aqueduct built in the eastern part of the city of Culiacan since the XIX century, which was used to irrigate the old sugar cane fields. Built with the classic brick of the region in the form of arches, this construction can still be admired today as part of the city’s heritage.
Our clients and friends have identified us for more than 40 years as “The Best Seafood Cuisine of the Pacific Coast”; thus, achieving a remarkable place at a national level in the gastronomic field.
Buttered corn tortilla filled with shrimp machaca, diced poblano peppers, onions and shredded cheese.
