It was Friday night at 7pm we had to wait for 20 minutes. It must mean something about the place that it was jammed packed! Always a good value. It is American Mexican food?

We went to Los Gallos expecting average Mexican food but were pleasantly surprised to discover that the food was very good. Server's were prompt and polite. Our free bowl of Salsa and chips arrived quickly. The chips were plentiful and warm.
The chilli relleno was cooked perfectly and the chicken enchilda was filled with moist chicken that was seasoned with just the right amount of seasonings. Lunch prices made this meal even better.
We saved room for the Flan which was probably one of the best we have had.
Well worth the hour drive to Rochester. Will be going back soon.

Looking forward to some decent mexican food,. My husband and I have learned not to expect too much from Mexican restaurants here in Rochester, and in that regard Los Gallos was exactly that, not much. We lived in Houston, TX for a number of years and got used to good mexican and tex-mex food. Only place near good in Rochester is Salenas. Anyway, back to this review. We ordered Fajitas for two, combination of steak and chicken. The sizzling plate of "chicken and steak" has tiny thin sliver of meat. Maybe a heaping tablespoon worth, MAYBE, the flour tortillas were good but the smallest I've ever seen anywhere. Rice and beans were okay. Chips were plentiful, but the salsa was extremelly bland. Not returning. The search continues.

Always a great food and very reasonable prices. Two dinners and a jumbo margarita all for $23.00. They also give unlimited chips with fresh homemade salsa. Never have to wait more than 5 minutes after you place your order.

Enjoy the "flavor" of Mexican/Central American food! Have there been times when you actually experienced Mexican food, as eaten, prepared and experienced by Mexicans? Los Gallos is a place to have a "near Mexican" experience! First, the entire staff is native to Mexico or Central America. Their first language is Spanish. To a person...and I've been a number of times to prove this...they bring with them the light, joyful attitude one correctly associates with the Hispanic culture. Second, the meals are as close to traditional, "of the people" recipes. Yes, there is some packaging for the American consumer...the kind we demand, but not at the expense or sacrifice of authentic ingredients, flavors and combinations. The waiters are ready to allow substitutions, mixing of different menu offerings...similar to being in Hispanic countries, the customer is still "king", and can get pretty much what they want. Third, the food is fresh; each meal seems made to order. Not to worry! All the "usual" menu items are available, and a few that are specific to the chef's style and background. Yes, chef...not cook. Try something new; ask the waiter...adult beverges are available; the atmosphere is very "cafe", family friendly, prices are VERY modest. Excellent !
