Confession: I'm from south Texas. Even though you might call our food "Tex-mex," I know good Mexican food when I see it. Regardless, I walked into El Gringo with the understanding that it was Siena - how authentic could it be? I ordered the beef fajitas, which were not beef fajitas. Basically, the meal was shredded beef folded in a... More

I was very excited to try this restaurant. We had eaten a lot of pizza & pasta in Siena over the week so we thought this Mexican restaurant would be a cool change of scenery.

This was a decent little restaurant considering ?.. I have lived in Italy for three years and was craving Mexican food. The service was great and the staff was wonderful also.

The portions here are very small and not amazingly tasty. I wouldn't return. Very average, i'd much rather eat some lovely Italian food than below average Mexican. Very friendly staff though!

The food was really tasty but the prices were high and the seated area in the basement smelt like mould.

Self service nando style but without any of the fun of how hot you dare make your food! Food is served on plastic plates, I am sure this is to add to the street food nature of the restaurant however it just screamed cheap and nasty! The food was poor, everything was pre prepared god knows when and sits uncovered... More

El Gringo is a typical Mexican taqueria characterized by the structure colored and tasting Mexican food also ready for removal. Located in the city center of Siena, is suitable for adults, children and teenagers. Average price without taxes. To pass "hot" lunch or dinner, come to the Gringo!
