Been going here for years - good Orange Park Mexican food - but not real Mexican as in the southwestern states and Mexico - speedy gonzalez is taco, beef burrito and spanish rice - good food, but not great.

We were here for dinner. It was ok, but kind of plain. Most of our dishes were good but not great. The sauce on my husbands burrito was very interesting, and really didn't like it. He ended up only eating the inside which was just ground beef. My enchiladas and refried beans had hardly any cheese on it.

I have been going to this place since 1999, and it is still the best Mexican restaurant I have been to, and I have been to a LOT of Mexican restaurants. The owners are a mom and pop, and they do everything right. The food is great, the service is usually fantastic (everybody has a bad day sometimes) the bathrooms... More

We love going to El Apache. The food is very authentic and their salsa is yummy. The only thing we don't like about it is feeling a bit rushed at night. I know staff probably wants to get home but try not to make us feel rushed. We will continue to go here over La Nopolera, which in my opinion... More

My family and friends went here and it was great. The service was superb. The Texas fajitas were out of this world. The server suggested corn tortillas. They were fresh and the food was hot and full of flavor. One of our friends ordered nachos she couldn't even come close to eating it all!

Had a great dinner with the family. One order came out incorrect and they immediately corrected it. The carne asada is real good and plenty. Had a great experience! It is always a pleasure to go there!!!

We just ate here a couple of nights ago. The food here is pretty good. The staff is always friendly and accomodating. The prices are mid-range. I wouldnh't say it was great, but it isn't bad either.

I've been to this restaurant a couple times in the past with the family but hadn't been in a couple years. With a lengthy wait at a very popular Mexican restaurant closer to our house, we decided to go the extra distance and visit El Apache again. The chips and salsa were decent and the server was very generous with... 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
