Casual Real Mexican at great prices

This is a good place to stop if you are in Globe AZ driving the Apache Trail. Mexican food is usually not pricey and this is really the case here. Casual lunch place, would be fine for families with children, would be good for a casual dinner also.

Went to Irene's for an early dinner because we were starving after coming from the east coast. Service is slow and the delivery of our bill was slow. The food is decent but we expected better as this was recommended as the best Mexican food in town. Did not care for their salsa or guacamole.

On arrival the parking lot was quite full, with many busy staff and happy patrons. I ordered the #5, which consisted of a regular Burrow, and enchilada, and a taco. Very delicious, but i'm no expert on Mexican food. Enjoy the photos!

I had the number 10 combination...Taco, Renello, Enchilada, beans and rice. The Renello and beans were the best I've ever had. Frankly, I was too full to even touch the enchilada. Yes, the place is not much on atmosphere, but Irene's is clean, very reasonably priced, and the service is prompt and personable.

For Mexican food, I would say it was poor. I had a hamburger which was ok. I would not eat there again. The staff was ok.

Great food and service. Nice menu offering great Mexican food and well as traditional American food. I was there about 6pm on a Wednesday and they were doing a brisk business. Does not look like much from the outside but once you go in you will not be disappointed.

Thought I'd try this little place when coming to Globe to work. I did not find it to be all that. I'm not a local and they seemed to think I should have known their menu. I'm always looking for good guacamole this isn't the place. Haven't been back since! I'd drive by this one.
