Always a fun place

Visited Gallo on January 16th with my wife and in laws. Have been there several times previously. As usual the restaurant was busy and very lively. Waited about 20 minutes to be seated (they do not take reservations). Seated in the main dining room. Our server (Ivonne) was attentive and welcoming... read more

Menu has terrible variety. It all looks the same. Sometimes they throw an adjective in front of the menu selection and it doesn't even come close to explaining what the dish will be like. For example, there's something like "Gallo Steak" and "Gallo Tropical Steak." Lack of clarity in the menu, and seemingly a lack of variety is a real... More

Had dinner before driving back to NJ on a Friday evening. Good thing we got there before 6pm since the place filled up fast. The super sampler was a huge portion. Their special green sauce partnered well with the food. We shared a camper special, chicken, beef, pork rind, rice, beans and a egg - the portion was huge. We... More

We've been here a few times; never disappointed! The first time here our waiter was very familiar but we couldn't place his face. A few days later, we remembered we had seen the documentary, "NOT IN OUR TOWN: LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS", (the story of the town of Patchogue saying, "enough!" to the series of relentless assaults on Latin residents...

Heard good things about Gallo and wanted to try some place new so we went....wanted to love it, but didn't. Sat at the tables in the bar and the lights were so ridiculously bright and the music was ridiculously loud. The waiter couldn't even hear our drink orders. We asked the poor frazzled waiter to lower both and they graciously... More

I wish we had waited for a table at Perabel, would have been worth it but we decided to try something different. So sorry we did! Avocado salad had crappy iceberg lettuce and tasteless dressing. Beef empanadas had nothing but potatoes. I had chicken, shrimp and beef quesadillas. The shrimp was virtually non existant, the chicken was bland and the... More

We have eaten here quite a few times and always left happy. We also ordered a few trays of food for catering and it was all really good and prices are so reasonable.

Terrible service food an atmosphere, waited 15 minutes before we got a waiter came to us. 10 minutes before we got a drink over 30 minutes before we got the main meal, the chicken in the sandwich was raw. will never visit this restaurant again, will not recommend this restaurant.

Went with a large group I would prefer a different table set up as it was one long table making conversation difficult. The app sampler was more than enough it could have been dinner. The chicken was incredible very moist and light. The rice perfect. Vegetable fajitas for dinner were cooked nicely. I would go again.
