We had read positive reviews, so we wanted to give them a try. The restaurant has no A/C, so on a hot day, prepared to be... hot. I used the condensation from my water bottle to cool me down. They had fans going, which helped but it was still uncomfortable most of the time. I guess that's just kind of how it is here, though. I'm not knocking points off for that, just wanted to warn you.

I ordered the taco salad for my kids and I, which seemed fresh and delicious... until I noticed that my kids and I were eating partially raw chicken. They were very apologetic and brought us new salads and in restitution, took off the $ for tax and tip. We tipped them anyway.

The flavors in my second salad were great, which is why I'm giving them 4 stars. I'm just not sure I would return because those kinds of experiences throw me off. I really appreciated them trying to make it up to us, though. At least they cared!

I got a chance to eat at a lot of places in Bocas. Gringos is a great place to hang out with friends and enjoy some really good Mexican food. Also the margaritas are the best in Bocas. I recommend the tacos. They had a very nice amount of spice.

We had a very good dinner for a reasonable price at this restaurant. If you like Mexican food, you will be happy here. Food was delicious, and the service was very good too.
