Came here for a birthday meal, food was cold and a very small portion for the price. Service was okay nothing special. Had get up a few time for drinks after asking to order some. Didn't stay for desert as didn't want to pay for nothing. Wouldn't come back again, and wouldn't recommend.

Went here for a birthday party. The restaurant was not very busy for a Saturday night, I would say that there were about 15 others in the restaurant, which for a summer Saturday night was surprising. Ordered the food at 8.10pm and it did not arrive until 8.55pm, so a bit of a wait. Ordered the classic burger, which was home made, but was very basic. Tasted like a ball of mince, formed into a burger shape and placed into a bread bun - for £7.95!! There was no seasoning, tasted very bland. Seemed to be interrupted every 5 minutes just as I had a mouthful of burger asking if the food was ok and if we would like more drinks. The drinks were served in small glasses - full of ice, so got very little drink - the ice watered it down so much that it tasted like cheap diluted juice. The coke is a cheap and tasteless drink - it is no Pepsi or Coca Cola. Will go again to give it another try and try something different, but maybe on the Student night to get the 50% discount with the NUS card. But I would avoid the classic Burger.

We ordered 3 main meals to take away, after we got home and opened the food, 2 of the 3 side orders were missing. Annoying.

We called and explained. After a short conversation it was agreed we would travel back and they would give the 2 sides we'd paid for.

Our issue was dealt with quite efficiently, so can't really complain, these things happen. The food was tasty and big portions.

We've been to El Gringos twice now, the last time we ate here was 5 yrs ago & we are happy to say that it's still just as good!
Make sure you're hungry when you visit as you get huge portions, excellent value for money. The ribs & steak are fab, perfectly cooked & tender!
You have to wait a while for your food but that's because its cooked to order so its not a problem.
My one critism is the toilets could do with sprucing up a bit but that certainly won't be stopping us going again & won't be waiting as long between visits!!!!

We visited because we were recommended the restaurant by our B&B hosts and it did exceed our expectations. The portions were huge, tasty and freshly cooked. Was a bit expensive though but would visit again.
