Maybe we went on a bad night?

Been here many times before always good. Always bragged to friends about the place so we took another couple with us this last time. We always get the skirt steak or the chicken but we decided to get the paella this time. Pretty much the worst we have ever had. I have the review at 3 stars... read more

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner here. The food was delicious and the price was more than fair. Servings were large and the waitress we had was lovely. My husband ordered the Campers platter and it was a lot of food. There was steak, chicken, pork, sweet plantain, rice, etc., all very tasty. My husband is not an... More

Why anyone would choose a fast food restaurant, at its prices, over a restaurant like this is beyond me. My wife and I lunched here on a Saturday. Jose and Jessica, who were our greeter and server respectively, were friendly and courteous. The prices are exceptionally reasonable, and the portions were such that most people were taking food home. Yes,... More

Gallo is a great place. The Colombian offerings on the menu are very tasty. The chicken is the staple of the restaurant and is really excellent. I also love the Ceviche and many of the apps. The place is very busy every weekend and turns into a club like atmosphere after about 9pm and can be very noisy. Weekend service... More

I've never been here for food but I have been here multiple times for drinks and dancing. Love their pitchers of margaritas! The bartenders are always friendly and personable. The dj is awesome! It gets packed later on at night. This is also the place to be in patchogue for cinco de mayo!
