Riverfront Times' Description

Call it Arcelia’s version 3.0. The original Arcelia’s closed in 2010 after a twenty-year run, first in Soulard, later anchoring the northeast corner of Lafayette Park. The family of founder Arcelia Sanchez, who died in 2003, has reopened the restaurant, bringing back much of the original menu, in a new location in Soulard. The menu is brief and features crowd pleasers like enchiladas, chiles rellenos, pork in a chile-verde sauce and quesadillas. The tortilla chips, fried in-house and served piping hot, are a highlight, as is carne en su jugo: a soup of flank steak and pinto beans in a flavorful tomatillo-bacon broth.

    This place in Soulard is the Original Arcelias. Great food & Out of this world Margarita's. Arcelia's daughter Marta is running the place now, along with her granddaughter Kat. They are continuing the family tradition of making everything fresh.
