Mexican... unmatched in Budapest. I used to think i have to accept the fact that mediocre mexican food is the only option in Budapest with Iguana restaurant being the only one that serves anything that resembles to mexican.... vaguely. BUT this player has changed the game. Hell it changed the league. Fresh fresh fresh... even the tortillas are made by hand in front of you...fresh ingredients well put together with smart choices. Using contemporary style and taking mexican one step further, The rice flavored with coriander and tomato... it is not just plain yellow.. OMG. heavenly. The sauces they serve on the side or on your choice are taste nirvana... zesty limey...chilly ...exploding with flavor.... nothing dull about that, Try the sweet pork or the burrito or even the quesadilla.... you will not be dissapointed. They have a kids corner... wow not many in Hungary think of that..The place is self service but imagine that: the crew is kind and nice, and big plus they all speak english. I really wished them good luck and hope they will be able to upkeep their excellency.

Hell YEAH!! I ate taco with that wonderful sweet pork stew and as I am a #1 beef fan I had my doubts before trying it, but AFTER the fisrt bite I gotta say: ALL my tacos in the future will have to serve with Gringos Amigos' sweet pork and fantastic fresh veggies!! :)
Place is cozy and fun and I love that the Staff is intenational and great to speak to :))
I really had a great time there! thanks!

This place is a good choice if you go for Mexican flavours. Nicely colorful decoration, light atmosphere, kind staff, excellent food, big choice. A funny, pleasant self-service place with authentic Mexican smell, tastes and style.

Explanation of which burrito/nacho/taco/enchilada/quesadilla contains what, which ingredients or extras fit the different meals, what is spicy and similar info are all there, but might be a bit complicated for the first-comers who need to ask several questions, therefore be prepared for slow service sometimes. Drinks are special and tasty. Gluten-free tortillas are available as well as gluten-free desserts (exccellent "Mannatural" cakes).

For families with children: some dishes seemed to me slightly spicy even if they were stated not to be so. Try first to avoid problems for the small ones.
