Worst fish tacos ever

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... read more

We were house shopping in Apache Junction on Saturday 2/14 and decided on Los Gringos Locos for a late lunch/early dinner. 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...

This is a great go to place in our area. There is a misted outside area, a bar area and a main restaurant. Very friendly service and consistently good food. Great happy hour specials as well!

It's been awhile since we've eaten here, but we've have always enjoyed it. There is a reasonable selection of happy hour specials. Warm chips and salsa are delivered almost as soon as you sit down. If you want, they will bring hot salsa as well. The salsa has good flavor and is chunky which we like. Perfect with the warm... More

2-5 happy hour with great deals on appetizers and drinks. Husband has a wildberry margarita which was de-lish! Two appetizers are more than enough food. Wait staff is attentive and they have a nice outdoor sitting area.
