We have been trying for a few months to find a good Mexican restaurant near Starke/ Gainesville that has real Mexican food, not chain. I believe we found it. This dining experience was a good one. The menu is chocked full of variety, reasonably priced and good service. The pre meal salsa and chips were outstanding, chips fresh and salsa... More

Ate dinner here after finding the geocache outside the restaurant. We had dinner with my brother and his wife and we spent around 38 dollars for dinner before tip. The staff was very friendly and quick service. Food was good and they have vegetarian options. I would go back.

This is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. They have excellent food and service. We have been so many times, they know us by heart and what we want to order. Food is always hot and portions are very good for the price.

We have eaten Mexican food everywhere, this place is very good! The service is excellent and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I always judge a restaurant by the staff's knowledge of their menu and the items that they recommend. They passed on both test!

The Margaritas are wonderful. The food is very good and service is fast. You may have a wait for a table, depending on the time you go. Just wish the workers could speak better English.

The food was tasteless. It's hard to do bland Mexican, but this place succeeded! My wife and I couldn't believe how bad it was and wondered how on earth the place stays in business. If it were not in Orange Park, where there's little to choose from, it wouldn't stand a chance.

We'd heard good reviews of this place and it's fairly close to the house...bonus! We each got #1 lunch special with relleno, beans, salad,and taco. Everything tasted so much fresher than the competition. The salsa was fresh, chips light and crisp. A bit disappointed that the relleno was just a slice of poblano with stuffing on top. Flavor was good,... More

Great People, Great Service, Great Food. I've eaten in Mexico, San Diego Ca, L. A. Ca, and Texas and El Apache is one of the very best Mexican Restaurants I've ever had the pleasure of eating at. Rest assured "IF" you have a problem just see Momma or Poppa and you "WILL" be taken care of. The "BEST" family restaurant... More

El Apache, is the where you can find me. Combo Number 11(Burrito,Taco, Cheese-Enchilada) never does me wrong. If you want authentic Mexican....El Apache is the spot.(El Apache's Warm Fresh Chips & Salsa destroys the competition aahhemmm La Nopalera) El Apache's salsa cilantro/onion really kicks it up to legendary status. But dont fill up on chips and salsa, save room for... More

Nothing to write home about, food is ok at best but Chips and Salsa rock. Atmosphere is non existent and every time I have ate there the place is pretty much empty.
