“Great burritos-very few issues”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

We love Gringos burritos and beans and rice! They also have excellent smoothies you should try. One of the VERY few issues being they do not always put enough salsa on there burritos so it is not very flavorful. But there is an easy fix get a spicier salsa or extra salsa. Overall gringos is a very good Mexican restaurant.

“Healthy, Friendly & Reasonable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

Liked the fact they offer multiple sized burritos so one doesn't have too much on their plate. Staff was gargarious and prompt. A delicious meal.

“Not Mexican!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

Lousy,lousy, lousy. Definitely quantity plenty to eat for your money but no taste, no spices, tasted like Pennsylvania Dutch food. No flavor. No place to sit except in the hot sun. Water was tap water in containers you filled.

“Voted the Best Mexican restaurant in Bar Harbor.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

In the middle of the village on a side street and frequented by the locals as well as tourists. The BEST margaritas!! And only $5.50.
The taco salad and burritos were excellent and the prices make it a great value.
Outside or inside seating, kitchen and counter staff very friendly, no frills.
But an outstanding value.

“Not good!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

They only seem to have burritos. No one in our party liked their food at all! Total waste of money! Probably the worst food I've ever eaten in a restaurant in my life! All the locals that we spoke to agreed. Only wish we had known before we went!
