Description: At Locos Backyard Grill, we are committed to creating dishes with only the freshest, highest quality ingredients available. This sets us apart from others in the area. As a bonus, our portions are more than generous, which is how we got our motto "big enough to share, good enough not to!" Check out our menu on our website or on our Facebook page (/LocosPanama).We are also involved in our community by holding recycling events, charity drives for the local orphanage, and talent exhibitions performed by students at the local international school...and you even get discounts for your donations! Locos also has a multitude of other events for all ages, like karaoke, salsa dancing (with free lessons), guitar competitions, and beer pong. Every Friday evening from 5pm-8pm, we host our Signature Happy Hour featuring $1.75 homemade sangria, $2.50 Cuba Libres, and buy 5 get 1 free buckets of beer. The environment is also important to the Locos family and we use the donations we receive through our recycling drives in projects around the property. Fences have been made from bamboo and wine bottles; planters have been made from broken stools and airplane tires; and we've even constructed our bar out of recycled chain-link fence and liquor bottles.

“Love The Patio/Backyard Dining”
Reviewed 23 April 2013

Very friendly owners, making it a point to greet all their customers on arrival. The food was very tasty and the service was very good. I love sitting in their patio/backyard for dining. I tend to go for early dinner so I miss the rush. It has a sociable atmosphere and a very comfortable place to dine

“Great Evening of Fun”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

The owners, Stepanie and David are friendly, outgoing and involved.
Great food, and drinks. The outdoor patio is well designed with lots of atmosphere in a tropical "backyard" setting. When you go to Loco's you feel like you got invited to the best party in town!
Thanks for another wonderful evening.

“What a little creativity can accompish”
Reviewed 11 March 2013

Stephanie and David have turned an unlikely corner location in Gorgona into a hip new Tex-Mex location where young (teenagers) and old (as in farts, like us) all have a ball. Huge US sized portion meals - I had the roast pork burrito - and loved it, my 19 year old niece had The Monster - (well named)
The music was great and the space lends itself to table hopping.These two are working hard to make this a destination location, and indications are they will succeed.

Stephanie A, Owner at Locos Backyard Grill, responded to this review, 12 March 2013
We are thrilled that you loved our food and the atmosphere! We have been working since day one to provide all our guests with a warm and welcoming place to dine and still have many more ideas we hope to implement soon.

All the projects around the property are completed with the recycling drives we have and we believe this has helped us to become a place where the community can come and have a blast together.

We hope to see you again at our upcoming special events this month, the Six String Shootout, Thursday March 14th, and American Diner Night, Monday March 25th!
