My husband and I always enjoy Gringos. We tried a new (to us) dish Pollo Marisco...shrimp, crawfish and a wonderful sauce over a chicken breast. Excellent! Can't go wrong at Gringos.

This is the place I hold others up to. I love the food here and am never disappointed. Get there early, because a lot of other folks feel the same, there is usually a wait.

I last reviewed this location a year ago and it wasn't good (largely based on service). It was based on that visit only. I've been there many times since then and all visits were great! We ate there again today. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding

We have tried to like this restaurant but after several visits for birthday celebrations we gave up. I told my husband that if we were invited to celebrate another birthday i would go but would try ordering a hamburger. Something about the cheese they use is so bad.

The food at Gringo's is the best!!! There are several Tex Mex chains which claim this but Gringos has the best food for the value. Portion sizes are large while prices are much lower than others. There's nothing bad on the menu....including salads and the La Bamba burger. We won't eat anywhere else!

No waiting in line, friendly people along with fast friendly service. Food was served hot and order was correct. Offered us to go drinks when we finished and thank us for coming. Ice tea was a little weak was the only down side.

When in town I like to come to Gringos for a great Mexican food fix! From the tortilla soup to the fajitas, enchiladas, tacos and more it's all excellent and served on hot plates. When you sit down they bring you tortilla chips and two sauces, red and green. I really like the green. It's my favorite. The prices are... More

I am a Tex-Mex food connoisseur. Have lived my entire life on the Rio Grande Border of Texas and Mexico and traveled extensively in all parts of Mexico, I have enjoyed some of the finest Mexican food there is. At Gringos I was skeptical but we needed to make a food and pit stop before the long drive back to... More
