Arrived about 4PM for a late lunch on my way to Galveston to board a cruise the next day. Discovered this place last year in December and plan my trips to the Houston area on where and when I can eat at Gringo's. I had an expired coupon and the new one that replaced it. I took both in on... More

We were regular patrons at your restaurant and tonight was a sub par experience. We love your call ahead option, and for some reason it would not let us use it. We called the restaurant and they told us there is no wait, and they could not take our reservation. We arrived at the restaurant less than 15 minutes later... More

Tried to use the "no wait" app but it did not work. I called and the hostess said there was no wait. Got there, only to be told it would be 20- 30 minutes for a table (we were with our special needs son). Service was horrible, took 40 minutes to get food, and when we did it was cold.... More

This is a typical chain restaurant. The food is good and the service is normally good as well. A nice place for lunch.

I'll start with the chips and dip! I've been to many tex-mex restaurants but have never had avocado dip served with the chips and sausa! It was AWESOME! Our waitress Sidney was very nice and honest. I told her I wasn't very hungry and we wanted to split the fajitas and she said that would be enough for both of... More

Been eating here since it opened many years ago. When you walk in you are greeted with so many delicious aromas. There isn't a mediocre dish at all. The service is always top notch. It is hard to narrow down what you will order this time. I have also used them to cater several times. Everybody was very pleased with... More
