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.

Because of the proximity of the restaurant to 3 hotels catering to cruisers, this facility is extremely busy on Saturdays. Our wait was a short one, the appetizers, food and drinks were good, but our waiter Anthony was over the top!!!

Gringos is a fantastic place for food and is known locally for their beverages. This place is always packed and there's usually a wait, but it's justified. The service and food is always good. The Gringos Amazon Sauce is outstanding.

The service was more of an issue than the food. The server spent 90 percent of of our dinner talking to his friends. The drinks took a long time to get to the table and then we never got our appetizer or waters. We had the shrimp fajitas and though they were served hot, they lacked flavor.
