A very clean and friendly family owned Mexican restaurant. We were very impressed with the service the margaritas and the Taco Locos. Will definitely revisit!

I like the Mexican design for the restaurant & the food is good.They're under staff. In my opinion this's the best place I ate during my stay.

This is a very good Mexican Restaurant. Cheese crisp are excellent, all the meat and chicken used has not fat and its very well seasoned. Hot sauce is as it should be HOT, they do have mild Salsa. Meals have the flavors of real Mexical food.

Elvira's recently had a make over with the new owner being in construction. I have to say the place is beautiful now. This restaurant has been on this corner for over 70 years and has served Mexican food to many generations. We go for breakfast most of time. I say it is a hit or miss because the service and... More

Graduation celebration with family and friends brought us in later in the evening to dine. The wait staff was with us the whole way and the attention was fantastic. The food is flavorful, abundant and very worth going back for more. I will definitely go there again on future visits and will bring others with me!

Went to Elvira's tonight, excited for a good meal after past experiences, but quickly disappointed! My daughter and I sat for 45 minutes, eating chips and salsa, while waiting for our food to come. When I asked a manager what the problem was he said he would check. Then came back and said he couldn't find my waitress (who when... More

Went with hubby & another couple for a bite to eat 3/06/14. Immediately greeted by friendly hostess & asked if we preferred a booth or table. Hubby had chimichanga. I had fajita enchilada. Our waitress was Beverly. Very friendly & efficient. Our food came quickly and was very hot. The chimi was good. My steak fajita was a bit tough... More

The food is good, service is great! Real, authentic Mexican food. The "new" owners (it's been a couple of years) have remodeled and upgraded the restaurant very nicely. The chips and salsa are never ending. [Hint: get the "other" salsa that's served in a bowl.] The only change that I don't like is that they revamped the menu and got... More

One of Apache Junctions really great Mexican resturants. It's been in town for over 25 years that I know of and has been completly remodeled inside and out. It's a must stop of authentic food and some cool drinks.
