A nice surprise

We stopped into Irene's for a mid-afternoon bite after we'd on the road all day on the Apache Trail, and were very hungry. It didn't look like much, but we gave it a try. It was a great idea! The atmosphere is nothing special, but the food was good and the prices were great. As we were eating... read more

Great price and would have paid more but just because you get alot of food doesn't mean its great. Yes- appearance was super, but the taste was normal, not bad, but not great either. When our order did arrive it was wheeled out on a cart- weird! Front door needs to be cleaned more often- I know its tough to... More

I was into Globe, AZ on business over the past 10 days, and stayed at the Copper Hills Inn, just around the corner from Irene's. I tried it out, and had such an enjoyable, authentic meal, that I went back two more times! The food was great, lots of good energy in the restaurant. A hands on operation by two... More

Very loud family style place, the chips weren't warm, the salsa was thin but had an interesting flavor, maybe some cinnamon? The service, as observed by many others, was uninspired. The staff was pleasant but inefficient and routinely ignored or forgot several requests. There was almost no chicken in the "chicken" quesadilla...The place was full but I think we will... More

Good service and enjoyable food. A the typical mexican menu items are available. The green chile sauce on a burrito is recommended.

Found this little place by accident. It's very clean, the waitstaff is awesome, and the portions are huge. We were there for lunch and had to take home leftovers. It is a very affordable place with excellent food. Great family atmosphere, highly recommended.

This is a really busy restaurant and so much nicer than eating in the chains. There was a good selection on the menu and not only Mexican. The staff were really friendly and helpful.

The food was super, the service was super. I found it fun when it came time to pay the bill, that they told you what table you were at, and you went to the register and said "We were at CC1" Very old fashioned, and truly very trusting. We already told two other people how good Irene's is, so if... More

This is one of my go-to's whenever I'm craving Mexican food. Don't know how many times I've eaten here or had take-out. Excellent beans and rice, which not every restaurant can claim. Can't beat the food and the prices.

Not many restaurants are open on Sunday night in Globe, but this one was, so we decided to try it as it was close to our B&B. We started out with salads that were fresh and delicious with chopped tomatoes, green onions, black olives and cheese. But from there things went rapidly down hill. We waited for another 30+ minutes... More
