“too spicy”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

The food was disappointing served on funky little plastic Mexican hat plates. They gave us plastic tableware (plastic forks) which I hate. It was much too spicy for my taste, so much that it overpowered the taste of the food. The only good part about the restaurant was that it was clean and cute inside. The prices were reasonable. Everything was new inside. I will never go back.

“Locally-owned, authentic cuisine in the Ohio Valley”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Spicy Gringo's is a small restaurant in a little strip shopping center along W.Va. 2. Owned by a local fellow recently returned from many years in Southern California, it offers fresh, nicely-prepared Mexican dishes at a reasonable price. In addition to tacos, burritos, enchiladas, etc.,there are daily specials. The homemade sauces - covering the full range of "hotness" - are delicious. This food is nothing like you'd get at chain restaurants. Open Tues-Sat, 8a-7p; dine-in, carry-out, catering. Soft drinks only.
