No surprises no big frustrations. The flavors are quite far from genuine Mexican and Margharitas only have a resemblance with the classic drink but does serve the purpose if a decent steak and glass of beer is on your mind.

We visited the restaurant on an early Saturday summer night. The staff was friendly and the service was fast. Good selection of texmex dishes and burgers on the menu. Food is good but not special. Good value for money.

I've visited this restaurant about 5 times and the food has been ok. Not stunning, but eatable. This time I ordered mexican tortilla burger. Nice idea, I thought. Somehow I assumed that there would be also cheese and other things that makes hamburger a hamburger. But no, only lettuce, some guacamole and salsa. My fault, I did not read the... More

After walking around for half a hour and finding most of restaurants closed we stumbled on this Mexican place. From outside it doesn't look like the most fancy place but inside was a nice suprice. Good atmosphere, nice music and friendly staff. The chicken wings were a bit of a dissapointment but our main course of Fajita and Burrito were... More

With high prices, bad quality and average service, I'm wondering how this place is gathering so good reviews. We ate burgers, which were really weird. They included only meat which probably never saw grill, with feeling of only boiled in water, and thrown to burger. It also included lettuce, marinated onion and fries. All that for >15€ is overpricing. Dip... More

A good choice for a family: my kids' (12, 14 and 16 years) favourite restaurant in Lappeenranta when mum and dad are too lazy to cook and ask them to choose the restaurant. Reasonable prices in Finnish standards, tasty food and many choices for adults and children. Also my foreign colleagues choose always this restaurant when they visit Lappeenranta -... More

Been there several times and every time enjoyed. Very good "beer restaurant" serving traditional mexican food. Steaks are good, also starters. Burritos and hamburgers are so-so. Serving tap heineken and local bears. Have to reserve table at weekends, as place is popular.

Very friendly waiter, who realised that we needed more space to fit our plates and manage to feed our one year-old, and helped move all of our food etc. to a larger table. Service was fast, food was fine. Not "gourmet", but this is a Tex-Mex chain of restaurants: perfectly adequate for a night out, but you wouldn't want to... More

Description
Salaper��isen Juanitan, Tex Mexin ja hyv��n ruuan l��hettil��s tarjoaa niin maistuvat herkut kuin muikeat juomatkin niit�� kaipaaville.

Gringos tarjoaa monipuolisia herkkuja jokaiseen makuun. Keitti�� tarjoaa t��yden kattauksen aitoa Tex Mex-ruokaa, unohtamatta kuitenkaan kevyit�� salaatteja, kunnon pihvej�� ja rapeita chicken wingsej�� tai hampurilaisia. Ter��svatsoille on oma Chili Specialities -osio, josta l��ytyv��t eritt��in voimakkaasti maustetut ruuat. Chili Specialities -osio on rakennettu yhdess�� Chilikauppa.fi:n kanssa.

Gringos Locos sijaitsee Viihdemaailma Ilonan yhteydess��. Iltap��iv��st�� alkaen ravintola keskittyy ruuan tarjoiluun, mutta illan tullen siit�� tulee osa Ilonan y��kerhoja.
Ravintola sopii oivallisesti niin kaveri- kuin ty��porukoidenkin illanviettoon.

Tervetuloa makumatkalle, t��st�� ei Tex Mex parane.
