Good food, good service. Always enjoy Gringo's Mexican food. Enjoy the chips and salsa and fajita's. Is it the best Mexican food i've had, well in southern Texas there is a lot to compare to, None the less, good food and good service.

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
