I've had better Mexican food. Not a big fan of shredded chicken in Burritos. The service was fine; however, my bill was $8.83. I gave him a $20. When I got my change, I immediately noticed there was no coin change. He gave me back 10 one-dollar-bills, shorting me $1.17. I know people can miscount, but the coin change was... More

Stopped in on a Sunday for a late lunch (around 3pm). Staff was very friendly and came to our table with chips and salsa very quickly. Food was brought out in about 20 minutes and was hot. The staff came by and checked on us several times however my son and I both ordered a combo plate with a beef... More

My wife and I ordered fajitas. I got chicken and she ordered vegetarian. Both were great but we were especially impressed with the fresh vegetables (not from frozen). Awesome.

I am a Mexican restaurant connoisseur, even having eaten in Mexico, & this is literally the BEST Mexican restaurant I've ever eaten at! Don't let its location fool u. I don't give 5 stars lightly. I had a Texas margarita, Pollo Loco & the Gambino's House Special. All were awesome!!

Went on a Friday evening after work with several friends. The good was great, fresh and hot.....the drinks were exactly what we expected...fried ice cream was to die for and the service was excellent. Was a festive atmosphere with lots of people, but did not feel rushed to leave. Even though the location might turn some people off.....please give it... More

Traveling home from walt disney world, we stopped in Locust Grove. Gabino's had good reviews on Trip Advisor and was close to the hotel. Wasn't real sure when I drove up, and it was attached to a less than stellar hotel. That all changed when I got inside. At the family owned business, the servers were very friendly and helpful....

My girlfriend & I (although, this is solely my opinion) stopped in for a quick bite to take a break from the road. It wasn't busy, which doesn't necessarily mean a good or a bad thing, but in this case I would've preferred it to be busy. I feel like it might've made the food a little fresher maybe. I... More

Everything is always good and consistent! There's a young man who serves the tables very well! Every time you ask for anything he says "I'll make it happen" and returns quickly! We go every time we pass through!

Thank Chefjm
