We came on a weekend to have lunch and ordered a few of the tacos to eat. After we receive them, they were soggy, and the taste was not good at all so we ended up just throwing them away and going somewhere else to eat. The staff did not ask about our reaction, they didn't seem to care (or... More

I lived in Springfield for years but never really went to this restaurant. My brother and I were visiting earlier this year and he insisted we go to Taco Gringo. Nothing fancy about the restaurant but food was very good. The sancho is now a favorite. I definitely will be back with my family.

You will never eat a taco like taco gringos!! Everytime we are in town we have to get them! No taco meat compares ! Their nacho grande is the way to go though!! Amazing !

Taco Gringo has incredible food and fast service. The Sancho Deluxe is a must when I need a meal on the go. You have your choice of either chicken or beef, and your choice of sauce….mild, medium, or hot. The richness of flavors makes this treat everyone’s favorite. The menu is very diverse with lots of Mexican favorites.

What can I say, their Sanchos are great, also try the chilli with cheese and onions it is great also. I always get great service at North Grand. Never had anything bad or bad service here.

Vvery authentic Mexican food at bargain prices. Don't judge this book by its cover!! Food is excellent. They have a large variety and very reasonable prices. Not a pretty spot but spot on for good eats.

I grew up eating at this restaurant (and other locations around Springfield). I also remember my friends and I coming here in my 20's, and eating a couple of sanchos before a night of partying. Everytime I come back to Springfield, this is a MUST STOP of mine!!! If you're not from Springfield, I'm guessing you probably don't know what... More

....stop of mine in the past when I lived in the area, and when I'm back in the area, for a quick fix of a tasty and inexpensive Sancho and taco. So if your craving is for a quick desire for Mexican, hit any of the area gringos, and you'll be satisfied.

Stopped here with my brother and husband. Spent 16 dollars. My brother really enjoyed the Sancho which is a burrito filled with meat. We made the trip special for it. They got our order wrong and we had to go back twice to get it corrected.
