As a part of the expansion in New Braunfels, the location of the restaurant will open at the tubing company Rockin' R River Rides in Gruene. An existing structure there will be turned into a two-story El Arroyo. The new restaurant will feature catering and banquet facilities as well as second-story dining.
The big question is, will Abilene start seeing these familiar signs soon? That could be a possibility as the owners of El Arroyo, Ellis and Paige Winstanley, are prospecting other areas in Texas with plans of opening several in the coming years.
