“Great TexMex for Family OR just Hanging out”

This is a great TexMex rest. There is something on the menu for everyone. Good Mexican food and if your out with friends a nice variety of drinks as well.

“Birthday Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

My family loves Mexican Food and this is about as wonderful TexMex as you can get. We are fans from their initial opening many years ago, the restaurant is always very clean and the food is exceptionally fresh and high quality. Now for the best part .. if you sign up for their newsletter, you get not just an appetizer surprise occasionally but on your birthday - a FREE DINNER! wow! Best birthday club ever! (and GRrrrrrrrreat margaritas!) Now that's great customer service!

“Tasty but Tangy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

We went to Gringo's in La Porte for an early dinner. Our waiter Eric was nice & the service excellent. We started off with an order of Queso with Taco Meat which had some green scallion pieces in it which added a little heat. I was able to avoid the green scallion pieces so we both enjoyed the queso.

We split an order of Pollo (chicken) Marisco served with tortillas, beans, rice & a side of cucumber pieces. My husband also had a cup of Tortilla Soup. We both enjoyed our meals.

Our dinner with tax & tip was $37 which included 1 iced tea, cheese on the tortilla soup (extra charge) & a side order of sour cream (extra charge).

We'll likely return. We've been to Gringos in the past & had another positive dinner & dining experience tonight.

“Great food, good price, nice portions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

I have eaten here a few times, and I will say that this is a REALLY nice restaurant, clean, friendly staff, good food, free soft serve ice cream for desert.
It can be a little noisy, but what restaurant isn't? If your in the area, stop by and get some good Tex-Mex.
