I had been waiting to try this and I was not terribly impressed. Food was okay and the portion was ample.

I'll start with what's wrong with the place first... there is no table service so every time you needed to order something you had to go up and pay for it separately. They would not do a tab and would have been nice to pay...More

My friend and I visited here midweek and really enjoyed our meals. They were well sized and quite yummy. Service was friendly and our meals didn't take too long to come out! I would definitely go back to try something else.

Tried Gringo's whilst staying in Glenelg and found the food to be delicious and reasonably priced. Some different dishes to try as well as the usual Mexican tacos, burritos and tostadas. Relaxed atmosphere with attentive and friendly staff. Jug of margaritas was also excellent value.

4 of us called in on spur of moment and found the food delicious. We all ordered something different and each meal was very tasty. $32 for Litre Sangria bit expensive but 6 glasses were got out of it. Well worth a try

Stopped in for a quick dinner. The food was very average Mexican food. Huge portions as we found all over Australia. I had the burrito, which was OK but certainly nothing to write home about. 2 Burrito's and two soft drinks, $50, a bit excessive...More
