Very good Tex-Mex in a neat little setting. Cool decorations, friendly staff. Enchiladas have tasty topping and lots of cheese. Tacos are crunchy. And they close on the dot at 2:00, with lights out to remind you.

Apache Mexican Cuisine is Average Mexican Cuisine. There are plenty places on island with better Tex-Mex cuisine, so this is not a must do. It has been around for some years now, bu that does not mean you have to put it on your to do list.

I have visited this "off the beaten path" restaurant on several occasions and have always left completely impressed and well fed! The Mexican food prepared from scratch in this establishment's kitchen is some of the very best I have ever tasted and, trust me, I have indulged in Tex Mex food in all corners of this grand state and even...

This is a small Mexican restaurant in downtown Galveston. We ate here on a Sunday for lunch and it wasn't very busy. Our service was excellent and everyone enjoyed their meals. I had the shrimp enchiladas and they were excellent. Prices very reasonable.

We shared the Shrimp Enchiladas and the Apache Special. The flavor of the enchiladas alone is reason to return. The Apache dish was very satisfying. The service was 1st rate. Restrooms could use some tidying up a bit.

We went once for breakfast and once for lunch. Both were passable but not much more. Great food could make up for the other short comings, but no such luck. No parking on the same block as the restaurant so that is a hassle.

Quaint restaurant in Strand area. Salsa was unique and VERY good. Cheese & Chicken enchiladas were freshly prepared;rice & beans were tasty. Restaurant is open from 8am - 2pm. I would highly recommend Apache Mexican Cuisine for breakfast & lunch.
