Try the off menu item

I have had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant for many years. The food is always great and the service is wonderful (ask for the receptionest DeAnn). I recommend an "off the menu" item which is "the veracruz" . This is a mahi mahi topped with a shrimp and crawfish sauce. It is fabulous... read more

We were passing through from galveston and saw it on our map. The customer service is exceptional. I got the beef fajita enchiladas, it was ok. Next time I will try something else.

I recently moved to Galveston from the north although we have spent years in the west and southwest, and have been eating at every highly rated restaurant within a 45 minute drive and we specifically love Tex-mex. Gringo's was so far above every other Tex-mex restaurant I've tried I had to to review it. We have now eaten there several... More

I think the title says it all. And I'm a lover of Mexican food, and here in Amarillo we have plenty of places and I've tried them all. Gringo's has a flavor I've never experienced, their own creations and great service. My only regret is I don't live closer to this wonder place. I can't wait to go back!

Everybody in our dinner party thoroughly enjoyed their meal. The Taco Salad is HUGE! The service and prices were excellent and if you have the opportunity ask for Gabbi. She is an excellent server with a smiley and bubbly personality. This pace is well worth the visit.

Average food but above average prices. Server could have been more attentive and helpful. Probably won't return.

We decided to use one of our gift certificates for our anniversary dinner this past week. It had been a little while since we had been to Gringo's but it was worth the wait. Since my hubby was driving I got the 20 oz. Gold Leaf Margarita which wound up being a big winner. We ordered queso with our chips,... More

I had the Tia-Juana plate and everything on it was excellent. My sister had the Burrito Con Queso and was equally happy. The chips that Alicia, our excellent server, brought out prior to the meal are a stand out themselves, light and not greasy at all as some chips can tend to be. The 2 sauces provided were very good.
