“Amazing food!”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

This place is a hole in the wall establishment away from the boardwalk, but the food was delicious! You must get the fish tacos. To die for!

“Perfect Guacamole!”
Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

Fresh ingredients and superb flavors make this local spot the first choice for Mexican in the Norfolk/VA Beach area.

The fish taco is simple and delicious. The carne assada is full of flavor. Must order the guacamole!

“Food good but overpriced & poor service”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

One reviewer called service "laid back"-ours was more similar to uncaring. Yes chips & salsa were quickly presented and order was brought out in a reasonable time. Server never asked us if we needed beverage refills or even came over at all. We finally had to ask another server to bring us our check. While the fish tacos were good, the incredibly small salad or order of rice & beans which is an additional $3.95 just isn't worth it.

“Authentic”
Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

We have been coming to gringos for 2 years and have heard about for several more. The food is very fresh and authentic. The best part is the friendly, laid back staff that is awesome. You have try the magaritas! If you have two magaritas DONT drive. Enjoy!
