Terrible experience! I ordered a regular burrito from the menu that was only supposed to have beans and cheese according to the description on the menu. When it came, it had steak inside the burrito. I am a vegetarian so I couldn't eat this. I also wouldn't have ordered it if I had known there was meat in the burrito.... More

We had a terrific meal but had to wait twice as long as we were told. Arrive early and definitely not on a Friday night. Cute outdoor area with fireplace in the back. Delicious salsa!

Service was really fast and the food was good. We had to wait about 15 minutes to get in, but once seated we were quickly served.

The food was average. Not a lot of bursting Mexican flavor. The service was not good. Waited a long time to get asked what we were drinking and to get those drinks. Took forever for food and they were not busy. Not a lot on menu. Wouldn't go back

My wife and I were hiking at Tonto National Monument and worked up quite an appetite. We drove in on Hwy 88 and came to Elvira's, missed the driveway, circled the block and went in. Service was fast and friendly, decor was very nice, and the salsa and chips were quite tasty. I had the fajita quesadilla and my wife... More

We dropped in for lunch after reading other reviews on Trip advisor and we were so glad we did. The décor is absolutely the cutest, I loved the tables and chairs very unique, at least to these Canadians. Barbara was our waitress , OUTSTANDING. We loved her. She suggested some items and talked us into trying a margarita. I had... More

Fantastic food, beautiful refreshing atmosphere, great service, very reasonable prices! We visited Elvira's twice when we were in town we liked it so much. I've had Mexican food all over Arizona, California, New Mexico, Nevada and Colorado ... and Elvira's is now one of my favorites. The most surprising thing is that it's in Apache Junction which has little good... More

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

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.
