Let me start by saying I did not have high expectations from this place. However, it still managed to disappoint. The first thing I noticed upon entering is that the place smells extremely dank, like it's had major water damage. I previously saw the other reviewer's comment which says the menu is hard to read, and I thought that was... More

Hi Emily, First off I am very sorry you didn't enjoy your experience, that is not something we want to happen. I am also sorry it's too dark, that is from the bulbs we use and our light fixtures, unfortunatly they do not generate a lot of light, We are presently working on new light fixtures that will generate more...

To start, I am so sorry you didn't enjoy your experience at my restaurant. I do agree it is pretty dim in here but there are menus on the tables and when you approach the counter they are easy to read. I also must urge my customers if there is something that you do not like you must say something... More

The food here is super greasy and salty. I do not like to be mean, but it was disgusting. The only connection to Mexican food was the burritto shell the food was housed in. They did not even serve salsa, sour cream or fresh ciantro with our, "authentic Mexican meal". The whole place was dirty and sticky with a conveniently... More

Burritos, quesadillas and salads. Fish tacos. The Dirty Gringo does them all well. They offer some neat specials, jalapeño bacon in their chicken club burrito. They make a mean bleu and steak salad. Unique dressings and sauces. Try everything.

I eat here about once a week if not more! I always get their nachos. Their quesso cheese sauce is the best! I'm also a huge fan of the Mexican pizza on Tuesday.
