Great Food And Service

This was the first Mexican restaurant that I have ever had. Our server was extremely helpful and offered free queso. She also helped with telling us about the area and things that we could do. The food was outstanding. Wonderful service. Would recommend this restaurant.

I had lunch here with business associates. The service was excellent and the food very good. I had the tortilla soup. It is a very hardy soup. Big chunks for veggies and chicken. It was very good. The enchiladas are very good and the fajitas are a large portion. It was an outstanding lunch. I would recommend it and go... More

When there based on other’s reviews. I found Gringo’s just another average Tex-Mex place. Nothing really stood out. If your good with the typical chain-type Tex-Mex than this may be a place for you.

While spending the night before a cruise we ate at Gringo's which was highly recommended by family who eats there every year before a cruise. Our family of 7 all enjoyed our food. Our waitress was incredible. She told her Manager that this was our first visit so he stopped by the table to welcome us. He also gave a... More

A family member and I swung in here for lunch one day after a length visit to the medical center earlier that day. We were starving! Their salsas are excellent, and the red salsa isn't too spicy. I ordered the seafood enchiladas and they were delicious. Cheese filled, covered in shrimp and pico de gallo. It was so good! Our... More

The best thing about this restaurant is the staff, very helpful and accommodating. Food was good, not excellent, but good. I like chuy's better, but this is a close second.

I go there at least twice a month. Always fantastic. Chips and veggies always fresh fresh and first class service. Atmosphere good. And let's not forget you get free ice cream. The only problem is I always eat to much. My family likes it do much they had my 50th birthday party there. So do your self a favor and... More

We were pleasantly surprised at the level of personal, warm service given us by the waitstaff. The food met and exceeded our expectations for Tex-Mex. Kedrin gave us good direction on beverages and entrees. We were seated in a quiet back room to enjoy a pleasant personal meal without interruption from screaming children. The sampler plate was just right for... More

Their food is good, the service friendly. I love the free soft serve ice cream cone you can get when you leave. It is a chain and I have only been to two of them, but those have been equally good.
