We had to regroup family reunion picnic plans due to record temperatures. We called to see if Los Gringos Locos could accommodate our group of 30 on no other day than Cinco De Mayo. They gave us 3 tables of 10, it worked out great...More

I can always rely on Los Gringos for good Mexican food. Not great, but good always. I am esp. fond of their cheese enchiladas and the carne asada. The salsa is always garlicky and yummy. The chips are always abundant. Sometimes the to-go orders are...More

We celebrated a backpacking trip here. Make reservations! Excellent dinner. I had the carne asada and it was so good! The steak was marinated and quite tender. Others had seafood enchiladas. Chips were freshly made and warm. Others enjoyed the margarita with cranberry and lime...More
