Great TEX-MEX

Best TEX-MEX in the area, county and maybe state. Full bar and fabulous food. It is crowded on the weekends so expect a wait.

We've been going to this restaurant for years and am always satisfied. Happy hour margaritas are tasty, but at times can be a little weak. A hint for something tasty off the menu is fried shrimp tacos. On the menu, have The Presidente, but pack your appetite.

The original Gringos has great and consistent food. For me, it is very pricey for a Mexican food place, it is insanely loud, and they have long wait times.

Good food for your typical Tex-Mex restaurant with a full bar! They do have great service just expect a long wait on the weekends. They have a patio type waiting area that you can enjoy your drink while waiting for your seat and the kids can enjoy a free frozen yogurt from the machine by the hostess. Love the green... More

Gringos is one of my favorite, if not favorite, Tex-Mex restaurants. The service at this location is great and the food is always good and a great value.

The main location is still pretty darned good. But the location near Pearland Town Square is a poor clone of the original. The quality is low, the orders are almost always greasy and the service is sketchy at best. Conversely, I've enjoyed my meals every time at the main location. Sad that there's such a disparity with just a few... More

The beer is cold and the margaritas are stiff. But the food is nothing that will keep me coming back. We've been a couple times, mostly because it's convenient to our house. But it's not in the rotation of places we take visitors.

Been eating there since the first restaurant opened in Pearland. We eat there once a week or more. We live a bit behind the place , so we Hen we go outside we can smell the wonderful meats cooking!

You can't beat Gringos for good, Mexican food. A favorite of Pearland for many years, I always bring out-of-towners there. My favorite is the Pulled Pork Enchiladas. My wife says the Margaritas and Daiquiris are very good…I am a Shiner Bock fans myself. The service is quick, the portions are generous and the prices are very reasonable. The Salsa Verde... More
