Glad I booked a table even though there were only two of us. Ate at 7.30 Saturday evening. Our starters were huge, cheesy nachos (totally moreish) and BBQ wings (tasty but messy). For mains we had chicken tacos and fajitas with pulled pork and chicken. Very generous portions, simple but tasty. Only downside was being squashed on a table right... More

Having been on numerous occasions I know the food is amazing. This time wasn't a disappointment, the menu is vast so choosing is always difficult. I had the pulled lamb burrito on this occasion which was delicious. The drinks selection is good and the staff are friendly. The one down side I find is the tables are very close together... More

I have always felt that a lot of Mexican places will charge you the best part of a main cost for a couple of bite size burritos/tacos and you end up spending tons and leaving hungry. It's why I despise tapas places, but Gringos is not only fantastic in price (with the 2 for 1 deal), we spent just over... More

Having worked in kitchens, after asking if a certain owner Chef was in, I would have expected more care and attention to detail would have been given to that table, but no it didn't happen. The evening did not start well from the first course, being given dead celery with brown ends. After asking for cold plates to be changed,... More

Visited gringo's for the first time between Christmas and new year for a meal with friends. We booked the set menu as my friend who booked was told there weren't any other menu at that time of the year. It was a very good price for two courses so we were all happy with that. Myself and another friend disnarrive... More

We used to frequent gringos regularly and loved it, but after a bad experience on our last visit with sub standard service and a drop in food quality we haven't been back for a while. Until returning this evening to be dumped in a drafty corner with no talks of drinks and menu's, just sat waiting. Food was slow and... More

The restaurant has a great atmosphere and staff are very friendly. It can sometimes be a little drafty by the Windows but otherwise the... More

Always come back when we're nearby and it's well worth it. Gringos is well priced and always has quality food, I would recommend to anyone who loves Mexican/slow cooked food. Definitely 5/5
