My wife and I have been going to the Crazy Gringo for over 6 years whenever we go to Laconia, usually for a Summer vacation. We had always been very satisfied, but this year, not so much. The food came out way too soon after we ordered for it to have been made on order, we had to ask for... More

We've been coming to the Lakes Region for years, and were so pleasantly surprised by this restaurant, which we hadn't visited before for some reason. Wow, we should have. It had a great staff, great food, and a welcome respite from the heat and activity of Weirs Beach. What a find!

Sitting here now eating and am extremely disappointed. Nice atmosphere, bar area. Ordered chicken fingers as an appetizer. Obvious frozen bag chicken pieces. Gross. Ordered two tacos and the beef one tastes exactly like store bought Mexican seasoning. Tortillas are straight from the bag. Blah. The nachos and salsa were completely bland. Feel like I want to go eat somewhere... More

Fun for the bar crowd, but lousy and expensive mexican food. Charge for every little extra. Sour cream, Guac and sauce usually comes on a chimichanga. And my daughter got cheap taco sauce like taco bell packets for her taco.

Always loved this place (not that they have been a culinary gem) but they seem to have gone down a bit more. Very disappointed that our drink that was ordered with fresh lime juice came with Rose's. Service was friendly but had no depth.

My husband and I came here for Mexican food. The bar area seemed a happy place to be, but we were hungry. We had no problem getting a table and the staff was pleasant enough. However, though the fajitas were served with plenty of chicken and veggies, they seemed to have no Mexican seasonings and were quite bland. My Margarita... More

Stopped in for late night food and drinks. The place was packed but we found a table by the bar. The food was at best average and the service was a bit slow that night, however, the atmosphere was fun and the crowd was good. Overall, seemed more like a place to drink then eat, but I could have gone... More

Stopped in here with my husband for a drink and some bar apps. Drinks are served in mason jars, which is a nice touch. Ordered some greasy nachos and wings... nothing amazing, but hit the spot with our drinks. The food being ordered by the tables behind us looked like good, generous portions.

This is our favorite place have a great margarita and Mexican pizza. An outdoor patio is also available. A must-visit place when visiting Weirs Beach. Great drinks, good service, and friendly people!
