Lunch with Special Friend's

The meal was good. It is very hard to find good mexican food. I have gone back because the food is better than some other places.

Was looking for a quick bite to eat and stopped at Los Gringos for snack. Went at happy hour they have great deals for a good price. You can sit inside or out. Good service too.

Great place for good tex-mex food. Good variety on the menu. Service is very fast, and friendly. Excellent selection of draft beers. Outdoor dining available on the patio. Everything we have tried on multiple visits has been very good.

We have gone there for lunch twice now and it is OK. As with so many other Mexican restaurants, the food just is NOT the same as it is when eating the same meal in Mexico. Trust me, we have lived in Mexico! Don't get me wrong, the food here is good, it just doesn't taste the same. Probably the... More

We were looking for some great southwest Mexican food with good atmosphere and good service. This place is located in Apache Junction, Az and was an unexpected delight. The restaurant was nice with a family atmosphere. The service was excellent with a very attentive staff. The food was even more impressive. We were a party of four and each one... More

What a great place to stop in for lunch. Fantastic lunch menu. Awesome burritos served in substantial portions with refried beans, sauce, rice. Complimentary chips and salsa. We have gone many times. Always consistently good. Haven't gone there for a evening meal but we'll get there eventually.

Visited Los Gringos in Apache Jct for lunch in March. Meeting another couple we decided to have lunch outside as the outdoor patio had lots of room. Getting right down to it, the food was good. Everyone was happy. But, if you opt for the outdoor patio, be prepared to wait. Outdoor service is very slow, and if you don't... More
