Stopped in for lunch on our way back from New Mexico. The portion sizes are big! Be prepared for leftovers. The special of the day was very good.

We stop several times a year during our travels... Always very good. Iced tea is very fresh and service is friendly. Beer available. Yesterday I had the #1 combo -- enchilada and a taco+ rice and beans... Very good and tasty. They have good daily specials depending on the day.

Irene's is clean, neat and pretty good Mexican food. They clean tables with bleach and seem very careful with food.

Our waitress was quick, efficient, and very helpful guiding to the best of what they had to offer. Our meals were scrumptious.

This lively restaurant makes you feel like home. Friendly staff takes good care of you lively but politely. It's all about eating. Portions are huge, tasty and difficult to finnish at site. Good value for money spent.

Irene's has been a family tradition for over ten years. When visiting my brother in Pheonix, we go the back roads and stop for lunch or dinner here and take quirky photos of us with the menu showing only our eyes. We have lots of photos and memories of our visits. The memories are much more fond than their food.... More

The food is excellent as well as the service. The place is uncomfortably noisy (lousy acoustics). Screaming children running around. We avoid going there more than a couple times a year.

I read the Tripadvisor reviews of where to eat in Globe, AZ on a Sunday and we picked Irene's which was definitely the right choice. We arrived about 12:20pm and were seated immediately. Within 15 minutes there wasn't an empty seat and folks were also waiting for take out - conclusion was that this is where the locals eat and... More
