Popular restaurants always seem to have a wait to get in. This seems to be the case on every visit to Gringo's. They took our cell phone number and texted our phone when our table was ready. All of our food was served fresh and in large portions. Definitely will return!

The food was good. Not the best I've had but ok. Very busy today. Waitstaff friendly and efficient. Large slection on the menu. They brag about the carne asada but I wouldn't rate it more than a 3. There is an abundance of cilantro in much of the situff, selsa etc. This place is not cheep eats.

This place is happily noisy and you leave happily stuffed. The variety of dishes and combinations is hard to beat. I always order their Chile Rellenos which are the best outside New Mexico. Their tamales are to die for. Tacos and enchiladas are oh so tasty. I've heard folks give high compliments for their quesadillas as well. Their salsa and... More

Mexican food is usually all pretty much the same. It's tex mex and honestly this place was decent. Unlimited chips and salsa & avacado type dip. The queso was plain....I have had much better and I make better at home. However, the meals were delicious and HUGE! I loved my bbq pork enchiladas...the rice and beans were flavorful and I... More

The fajita bowl is so good! Just the right amount of beans, rice and meat with cheese on top. So next time you come in or if it is your first visit it is a must try.

I love Gringo's! Fresh chips and salsa; both green & red. The grand kids love the chicken & fries. Their fries are sooo crispy! I like the polo conqueso. No matter how many special requests it's not a problem and it's always so good.
