I ordered the chili relleno. It came with an Anaheim chili which I like but there was no egg coating. It was just OK. Our margaritas were very good but when we got the they were higher priced than the menu. We were with friends so we didn't dispute the higher charge. My wife said her chicken enchilada was too...

First time going to the Dining Room Cafe. Friendly, neat, clean. Great atmosphere. 38 seats inside and several tables outside. They are the only restaurant I have gone to in Apache Junction with organic vegetables. I had the chicken salad croissant and potato salad. My husband had the ham and cheese sandwich with a pasta salad. Most foods are homemade.... More

The prices were good, The food was good. What more could you ask for. The waitresses were attentive even though the place was filled to capacity. A couple invited use to sit at their table. We met a friendly couple from the same hometown. We will be going back.

Very good food and large servings with very reasonable prices. The waitress likes to kid around and makes you feel like a regular customer

Found this by Trip adviser, and although the ranking was lower that places like Hackers grill and Mickey D's, our experience was great. I had a veggie omelet and husband had the biscuits and gravy (flavor not too salty). A small dining room but tastefully decorated. Service timely and friendly, both dishes tasty, prepared well and good value for the... More

Recently attempted to enjoy lunch here with my family and friends at The Dining Room Cafe and left in under a minute. The waitress was extremely rude and unprofessional regarding an error the resturant made. I will absolutely never return and advise friends and family to dine elsewere.

Stopped here in search of a different restaurant and decided to take a chance when we saw locals coming and going. The waitress was a real hoot and the food was good. The veggie omelet was excellent, coffee was refilled quickly and dirty plates removed immediately. The place doesn't look like much from the outside but itt's curtly decorated and... More

We stopped in here for lunch on the way to Goldfield Ghost Town. I had a burger, my husband had the BBQ sandwich and my son had the grilled cheese. We all enjoyed our food, and the service was great. There were lots of locals at the restaurant. They were out of the type of soda my son wanted, so... More

First - it's not "Formerly the Speckled Hen"! That restaurant was the previous tenant of the location. It was a completely different business, different owners and nothing to do with the Dining Room Cafe and I'm glad about that! Jim and Mary Jo have worked hard to create a home style cafe with good food, great service and good prices.... More
