Authentic Down Home Mexican Cooking

If you like simple home fare, this is your place. They serve many standard dishes. The service is good. The place is noisy. To begin with, the room is live. What was really jarring was the apparent carelessness that resulted in loud clattering dishes, dropped on the floor, put into the pan for... read 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

Very good authentic. The sauce is hot! The place is crowded but if you like authentic this is good. Liked the chicken fajita.

Not the greatest Mexican food, but the portions were good and the staff was friendly. The big combo plate was good, but the taco was a bit burnt.

It has Decent food, pleasant service. Its run down and Needs to be updated/renovated. We would eat there again. The beans and Spanish rice I had were pretty good. The rest of the family enjoyed their meals as well.

We tried this 2 different times while visiting Globe. The first night the food delievered was cold, the taco meat seemed old. Okay, everyone can have an off night. The second time was not much different. Food cold, taco meat not great and the enchilada and burro were cold :( Cannot recommend this at all

Had a supper takeout while in town and the service was fast, friendly and accurate. The food was fresh, hot and very tasty. Well worth going to while in town!

Irene's is one of my favorites for Mexican food in Globe, AZ Located conveniently on Highway 60 travelers can find it easily, but you will always find many locals there because the food is plentiful, excellent and authentic, at an affordable price. I ordered a four item dinner, taco, tamale, enchilada, and bean tostada. This entre also came with rice... More

I could only recommend this restaurant if you like deep fried and everything swimming in grease. We stopped for lunch because our favorite, Chaco's Mexican was closed for repairs. This place was horrid and we had to wait for service on a Sunday afternoon. The chips/salsa were marginal and the beef taco and beef enchilada were deep fried and very... More
