Having just hiked up Superstition Mountain, we were looking for a Mexican Restaurant. Spotted Elviras on the GPS and thank god. Great ambience. Pleasant servers. The Boss is always on the ball. Food was very good. Chicken Enchiladas and Flautas. Super. Should not be missed when in Apache Junctio

The restaurant itself is very bright with Mexican décor; really great. Waitress was very nice and the food was great. Service was quick and excellent. Definitely recommend it if you are looking for good Mexican food in a clean and colorful atmosphere

We arrived in Apache Junction during October 2014. Since my wife likes mexican food and Elivra's was nearby and looked nice we decided to try it. We found the food wonderful, the restaurant very clean, including the bathrooms, and the staff fast and friendly. It really is our favorite restaurant and have been visiting it at least once a week.

Stopped at Elvira's Mexican Restaurant for lunch just the other day with friends. The food was really good. After wandering around in the heat visiting the Goldfield Mining Ghost town, Elvira's was easy to miss when driving back into Apache Jct. with no signs until you drive by it. Inside the restaurant, the Mexican decor was almost vivid with the... More

After visiting the Lost Dutchman Park, we were hot, tired, and hungry so we stopped at Elvira's for a quick bite before heading back to Scottsdale. The service was great, the taco salad was excellent (and huge) and the decor was cheerfully Mexican. The salsa and chips were really good too!

Nothing special about this place. It was hard to find since there is very little signage outside. Menu is so so with nothing extraordinary. Breakfast was unsatisfying. Dinner was good and well priced but with little imagination. Fast food Mexican would be as appetizing and I can get that at Ericberto's down the street. There are other Mexican places nearby.

Great food and good service! Their red chili burro and shredded beef tacos are delish! Menudo is also good.

Loclly owned family establishment that was completely redone in the last couple of years!! The hand carved tables, chairs and booths are quite lovely plus the food is very good! They have worked hard to make it a fun dining experience. If you are in the Phoenix/Mesa area it's worth a trip! the outside seating has pretty good view of... More
