“A lively loud restaurant, packed on a Tuesday night!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

We visited on a Tuesday evening and the place was full, what a good sign!

It was loud an lively, so you wouldn't go here for a romantic evening, but was perfect for the four if us. We visited after 7pm, but have a 'taste card', so it was 50% off, which was a bargain. They do an early bird offer of 2 for 1 before 7pm I believe as well.

The food was absolutely delicious, we had starters and mains, and were full to the rafters. It wasn't particularly spicy, but you could add salsa to taste which was nice. We weren't offered any deserts nor saw a desert menu, so can't comment on this.

The only negative I would say would be that they could have done with an extra member of staff. The young waitress was rushed off her feet, and the manager/owner (?) was rushing from behind the bar to serving tables, so drinks orders were slow, and service felt rushed, and was a little surly from the waitress.

We ordered cocktails, beer and soft drinks and the cocktails were lovely, and very nicely presented. This is a definite draw for the restaurant.

The bill for the four of us, including cocktails/drinks, starters and mains was £60, but as I said before this was due to the 50% saving with the taste card. I would definitely visit again, but was glad of the discount!

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

Travelled from Barnsley to have a meal and it was well worth the visit. A really good dining out experience and would recommend it to anyone. Not too expensive either and childrem friendly

“Fantastic value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

We decided to go in after work and catch the early bird menu. Although the menu is a little light on options the portion sizes you do get were massive especially the chicken fajitas. We had starters which were loaded(nachos) and a main and could not finish it all. The food is well cooked and presented well. The staff are very friendly.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

Came across this place by chance and so glad we did. The atmosphere, food, service and hospitality could not be faulted. Staff were brilliant - the owner showed us round his bar next door. Will definitely be back. Thoroughly recommend you try gringos.
