“Good Family Friendly Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Crazy Gringos is a family friendly restaurant that is in the Walking Street up the southern end of the beach road at Ao Nang. It is also the place for all day 90 baht Margheritas and there is a menu of over 20 to choose from. Now I had never tried a Margherita until we went here and now I love them. My favorite one is the Hot Chili Mango Marherita.

Their meatballs with Béarnaise sauce and mashed potato was delicious, after being in Thailand for quite a few months I was craving some comfort food and for only 200baht this dish hit the spot. Gary also enjoyed the Crazy Gringo Spicy Burger for 290baht. My favorite dessert here is the Chocolate Mud cake with fresh cream, ice cream and raspberries; it was perfect and only 150baht.

This is a nice place to come for dinner and drinks with a good band that can play absolutely anything you request. The staff are attentive and Dave the Manager is spot on with his recommendations for what to have for dinner. There are also plenty of televisions showing live sporting events. We are looking forward to coming back to Crazy Gringo’s.

“Food is OK, staff and ambiance are excellent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

The formula isn´t quite new anymore, but not at all worn out yet. The cowboy-hats, the Filipino band and the quite acceptable food are good reasons to come back time after time.

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

I live in California and am accustomed to great Mexican food. While this is def. not what you would call "authentic", it is still pretty damn tasty. I went on Taco Tuesday; 45 baht for a taco. I got the chicken tacos and ordered a side of guac; my taste buds danced. Yes, the cheese is melted, but still good. Also, the margaritas were done perfectly. It opens later in the day though; not sure of what time specifically, but not before 1pm for sure. Would def. recommend going!

“Great ribs, burgers etc expensive for thailand but ok for a one off”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

Found this place down one of the little courtyard tourist traps. Cocktails were on offer at 99baht but only the first 3 pages of the menu £2 for a cocktail is good for ao nang where drinks are pricey. Daiquiri 's were very good as were mojitos. Ate chicken burgers, beef and ribs. The ribs worked out at £7 but were really nice. Bit pricey for Thailand. They were a bit skimpy with the chips. The burgers were good with a good selection of extras on them. If you don't want to pay decent prices for western food And you are used to paying street food prices then you might end uP putting a review on here saying it was not good.
