My family of 4 from indiana went here for "authentic" mexican food. We waited for nearly 30 minutes for food. Our order was simple; one taco, one chicken taco, one taco salad, and one burrito. We were about to walk out when the server said she was going to get our food. It was delivered and none of us thought... More

A 10 minute drive, this is sometimes our go-to place for Mexican at times for take out and an occasional lunch or dinner, so we've been to Los Gringos a number of times. The chips and salsa arrive pronto. On this occasion, wanting lighter fare, I chose the Chicken Mango Salad whose description included "tossed wth our homemade mango vinagrette".... More

I visit relatives in Apache Junction every February and Los Gringos is our #1 stop. All of the food is delicious and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

Good atmosphere, good service, worst Mexican food ever. Our wait was light for a Saturday night. Ample seating and very good atmosphere. My margarita was decent. Moms iced tea was good, but that is where it ended. The food was awful. Slow, came out cold, and the rice was strange shades of green and yellow. My fish tacos were horrible.... More

We walked in just before 4pm, asked for a booth and the hostess took the 2 of us to an oversized circular booth that could easily sit 8 people. We politely asked for a regular booth and were told...
