I'm a big fan of Apache's while I'm here every year for 5 months. Great happy hour (4:30 to 7pm) crowd with my favorite strawberry daiquiri at 2x1 which are a great deal.

Hands down the best cocktails. They are delicious and reasonably priced. The bartender and waiters are outgoing and CUTE. Fun atmosphere and most definitely is the spot to go for a drink. We did end up eating an appetizer sampler dish that was pretty good too.
