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

Beer Rita was excellent (use Modelo Negra, muy bueno!). Wife's Lafresca Margarita was great. Chips and salsa very good, chips were very light and crispy. We both got taco dinners, 3 tacos very large and good. (Hint; get flour tortillas and smear the refries on it and wrap around taco muy bueno tambien!). Waiter was very friendly and attentive. In...

Quality dining at an, affordable price. The service is always great and the food always fresh and tasty. Will say the place stays busy, but worth the wait. Looking for a good meal with a pleasing atmosphere , Gringos is the place to stop.

Thank Sherry B
