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.

We are very very picky when it comes to Mexican food. We are used to CA Mexican or CO Mexican. There are differences. We do not like Tex-Mex at all. The menu was good, beer and wine prices were really nice, and the quantity of food was decent. The food over all was just okay. Not what we are used... More

Fresh food with great flavor and ample portions. Salsa and chips are complimentary and having fantastic flavors. Cannot say enough about the place it is heavenly. Some evenings there is even Entertainment. Family run and family friendly a great date place too. The food is fantastic but not pricey.
