better than the competition

I really liked this place. So good and way nicer that you'd think. It's clean and well decorated with great and attentive service. The best part is the food/price. Fresh chunky Guac, real salsa and great combo dinners!! Make the drive and enjoy a classy Mexican dinner for once instead of the other... read more

This place was truly a wonderful, authentic Mexican restaurant. There was chaos in the kitchen. Some of the wait staff didn't speak much English. The food was spiced correctly and savory. No more. Today, the tostadas were greasy, limp and tasted of oil from a deep fryer that needs a change of oil. The salsa, which I used to buy... More

My husband and I went here for dinner on a Sunday. The restaurant was clean, not real busy when we arrived around 5:30. We were seated right away and drinks and chips with salsa were brought. The chips and salsa were both fresh and warm, just the way I like. Salsa not too chunky, not too spicy. My husband ordered... More

Way over cooked the meat. However the Chips and salsa were good. The owner of the restaurant apologized and did not charge us for the dinner. That was nice.

We LOVE Mexican food!! Our son suggested that we try El Apache (his favorite) because the food is fresh, delicious, the restaurant is clean, and the service is friendly and efficient. We did, and agree with our son!! We have gone several times since and love it! It is our new favorite Mexican. It has been consistently delicious. If you... More

We go hear fairly often. Service always decent and food is always good. The fajitas are very good. Much better than la napolera!

Our water was extremely friendly and responsive to my daughter. The chips and salsa were fresh and tasty. We ordered Fajita Nachos and the Super Burrito. We were both very satisfied with our meal.

There was a time- 30 years ago- when a Mexican restaurant with many combo options was a great find. A lot has been done with authentic Mexican cuisine since then. This is 30 years ago. Warm beer, old dry lime. A chile relleno (basic) is a roasted poblano pepper with a filling, then dipped in batter and pan fried; Mine... More

Been going here for about 10 years off and on. It gets worse every time. Our last visit...which is definitely our LAST visit... was not worth it. Service was very slow, food was not hot ( even though the server used huge potholders?). The chips were stale, tortilla not cooked and worst of all... beer was warm. They need to... More

A play-by-play of our night. The little man who sat us was adorable. Very sweet and nice. Our waitress came to our table about 10 minutes after we sat down and asked for our drink orders. Another 5 minutes later, she came, gave us our drinks and we ordered. After that, she didn't come back to our table for another... More
