Nice atmosphere food was ok. Tell them it's your birthday and they will bring you dessert and sing to you

Every meal we've had here has been great; spinach enchiladas (don't have to have the chicken); great tacos, can't think of a dish we didn't like.

There is nothing 'Happy' about a 3 hour happy hour then ends when most people are just getting out of work. I would go if it was till 6pm, but 5pm is a joke and shows they don't really care about the locals, just the buck.

Often crowded on any evening so servers may be busy. Can get noisy inside, but outside seating is always pleasant. They don't take reservations but will do call-aheads. Don't ask me... More

There are not a lot of options in Apache Junction for Mexican food but this by far is the best local place. My husband loves the Carne Asada he says the meat is always tender.
