Our favorite is the Green Chile Burro. The Seafood Burro is also very good. I love the salsa that comes with the chips when you are first seated. Not too hot and not too spicy

Los Gringos Locos is a fun place with good, friendly service, however, the food could be better. I was particularly disappointed with the seafood chimi which contained that highly processed fish product commonly sold as fake crab. Also, the sauces were drenched over everything to excess. The bar service is good but they serve pre-mixed regular margaritas and have only... More

There large menu covers all the basic's for a very good Mexican restaurant and the portions are well above... More

First time. Service is great. Atmosphere is nice. Plenty of parking. I had the pork tamale and loved. We didn't care for the shredded beef. Salsa was excellent. We will be going back again. Next I will try the chile rellano. My very favorite. Have them ever day in Mexico. Yes we will be back

Yummy food all the way around but the Green Corn Tamales are my fave. This restaurant is very clean and offers a good variety of Mexican dishes. Apache Junction is a very happening place in the winter time so expect to wait if eating at normal dinner hours. The have a Saturday and Sunday brunch in the winter as well.... More

We have been here several times since we moved to Apache Jct. and the food is excellent, have eaten breakfast/ lunch / dinner, the food is always hot and delicious. It's the same crew for years, that's always a good sign for me. If your in the Mesa, Gilbert area come check them out, you won't be disappointed......For the sensitive... More

We went for Cinco de Mayo and had a pretty long wait, but once we were seated, we received excellent service and food. I love their salsa!

Didn't look at the other reviews because we reviewed this place favorably last year. For us nothing changed. We ate on the patio. Had reasonable service for eating away from the crowd. Food was good and the price was reasonable. We will be back again when we are in the area next year.

Been going to this place for years and have sung it's praises. All of a sudden it has gone to the dogs. Service is spotty at best and not existent at worse. Food takes forever and then cold when you get it. This 3 is trips in just the last few weeks. When we confronted the manager to express our... More
