Better then just 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... read 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

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
