Good food, good service

Although this place is very crowded, in my opinion the food is good but not great. There are better Mexican restaurants in Pearland so I do not understand the popularity. I view it as average food

Went on a Sunday afternoon. The wait was longer than the 20 minutes like they said it would be. But the food was had awesome taste. They actually offer different dressing for their taco salad. Yummy.

What can I say? Everything we have tried there has been delicious! service is great, Superior decor. Only complaint, it can be very noisy. Our favorite and quietest place is a booth in the bar or the room behind the bar, which is not as noisy as the other rooms. All this and free ice cream for dessert.

We went on a Sunday night over the holidays when it was very busy. Very happy buzzy atmosphere. The menu was varied and the food was fine. Not drop dead amazing but pretty good and lots of it. Service was friendly and attentive.

Since the 90's I've always enjoyed the atmosphere of Gringo's. The food has never disappointed. The staff is also some of the best people that have become friends. I'm not too sure of the other location in Pearland but the original Pearland location is the one I've always enjoyed going to.

We dropped into Gringo's about 5:30 and it was packed, but they managed to seat us in just a few minute. We split chicken fajitas for one with an order of caso and it was as good as we have ever had anywhere!

If you want great food, at great prices in a family setting this place is perfect. I go often so sometimes if I go alone and sit at the bar the service isn't always great. Being seated seems to be the best option if you are in a hurry or really hungry. They have an awesome Happy Hour Deal and... More

We always love to go to gringos for Tex Mex food. They do not have the best fajitas but they are pretty good, the red and green sauces that come with the chips at the beginning of your meal are very good. Great service, nice atmosphere. The Pollo Marisco is my personal favorite.
