Dinner out with family. Great atmosphere and service. Ask for Anthony (he provided awesome service). Food was wonderful. You can try anything and not be disappointed. Our group had Pacifico, Fajita Enchiladas, and Seafood Enchiladas. Very family friendly. You can even enjoy a complimentary ice cream cone after dinner.

My husband and I go here when we want a really good margarita and we usually share the salad that is loaded with all the good stuff!! What we do not like is the noise. People are rude and talk too loud. Children are not necessarily disciplined and those who are we will usually thank the parents. And WHY do... More

The chips and green sauce were excellent. We were seated quickly and our order was taken right away but it took a long time to get our food. The fish tacos were tasty.

The food was good. But the service was not the greatest. I would go back to give a second opinion. Maybe within the next month.

I've eaten at this Gringo's many times in the past, but plan to change my choice of restaurants after my family's experience tonight. My 9 year old daughter finished Vacation Bible School tonight, and we let her pic what restaurant she wanted to eat at. She chose Gringo's in Texas City. We arrived around 9:00. There was a 5-10 minute... More

Fun and delciious food. Had fish tacos. They had generous portion of grilled filet of tilapia and vegetables in them, SO delicious! Some places have only a few small pieces of fish, not these.The avocado-sour cream dip they bring with the chips is wonderful! Nice frozen margarita. great service from Melissa.

I don't really like Mexican food but this place makes their own corn tortillas fresh and they are great! Try the shrimp with a jalapeño or the fajitas they as super good! A warning though they do charge for cheese sauce (which is great and comes in an edible bowl) but they do have the chips and salsa setup. Also... More

Gringo's is a local chain restaurant which serves typical tex-mex food. It's popular, so the wait can be long and it sometimes gets pretty loud. Service is good, decor is typical Mexican inspired, wait staff and food service is fast. You gotta try the green sauce which is served with their salsa and chips. Love the pulled pork quesadillas. Really... More

We live close to this restaurant and eat here about once a month. It's popular, so the wait can be long. We usually go a little earlier than the normal dinner or lunch hour to avoid the crowd. The decor is colorful and fun and the service is good. We have our favorites, but have ordered many different plates. The... More
