We used to go to El Gallo Giro many years ago but stopped because the quality was lacking. We were happily surprised to find the quality is excellent again. I had a Monterrey chicken dish that was creamy and nice. It had lots of tender...More

Went today for a family dinner. Really tight seating. Walk up ordering and then go find a seat. Food was good but a little slow coming. Everyone liked the meal they ordered.

I always get their student chicken enchiladas and they are the best. Plus, I love that they give you free chips and salsa to start out. Nothing bad to say about this place.

We went because of good reviews. We spoke to the cashier for a while about what was good. She was charming and helpful. I ordered the enchiladas and my son ordered the chalupas. His were really good, but my enchiladas were very oily. I didn't...More

If you like Mexican grilled chicken (pollo aside), this is a great place to stop if you are ever in Provo, Utah. The taste is great, the portions are ample, the price more than acceptable. My wife and I like to share the 1/2 chicken...More
