This used to be a great place to eat, drink & be merry with a great wait staff that worked perfectly under pressure. Now, even on a weekend night, dead zone should be the name. Wait staff ok when it should be great (no diners should make it much easier).

We always go here for the BBQ ribs, best in town. It is a local, quaint little place just a short walk from the hotel. I love this place.

I've eaten at this place years ago and it was good then as it was on my recent visit. Service was good with friendly smiles and the food was delicious as I remembered it from previous visits. The down side is the decor is almost exactly the same as I remembered it also...some fresh paint and flooring would brighten things... More

If you are in the Gold Zone in Mazatlan you could run into the Gringo Lingo. There are so many other preferable options for dining. Our food experience was average at best, not particularly flavorful, if you can imagine that about Mexican food, which I love, and the tortillas were cool. The worst part was sitting through the endless drone... More

okay but will not go back. I can not think of 100 characters to explain why. Just leave it at the service was poor and the food cold.

This eatery is very conveniently located in the heart of the Zona Dorada, within walking distance from most major hotels and from the Boardwalk (Malecon). The restaurant staff are very helpful, professional, efficient, prompt, and (for what it matters) handsome. Their chimichangas and quesadillas are plate-licking good. Their happy hour specials are very well-priced and reasonable, as are also their... More

Great restuarant and bar with a lively friendly staff. The menu is mostly Mexician food with a few americian dishes.. Very lively on band nights and always fun!

Our 3rd trip to Mazatlan and 4 visits to Gringo Lingo this time....so much fun. Ruben and staff welcome us with open arms every year. The beers are frosty, the nachos, salsa, cheese sauce are homemade and delicious. Ruben has some great stories to share and treats his staff with dignity and good humour.
