We enjoyed a tasty lunch last Thursday. I had the cheese enchiladas which were so good. The service is excellent and the restaurant is huge but with a nice vibe. The prices are very reasonable.

Love this place!! They have the most amazing green salsa... I could eat nothing but that! My favorite dish is the Amazon wrap. It's a fajita salad wrap served with rice, beans, queso and guacamole. The only reason I rated Gringos a 4 instead of 5 is the wait. It can take a long time to get a table, especially... More

I've eaten at the Gringo's in Texas City and the same great food and service can be found in the location in Cypress. We often take cruises and plan our trips around eating at one of Gringo's locations!

I have been to Gringos's several times. This location is always packed full. Reason why I dont go often. The food is good and to me is better than some others. But, it does fall into the usual Tex Mex. The chips and salsa was good. Important to me. The service was good and the staff when we go has... More

I love Tex-Mex and eat it on the reg. I highly recommend coming here for their green sauce. Seriously. TO.DIE.FOR. My favorite thing on the menu is the chicken tortilla soup, but because everything about it is heaven. I highly recommend the stuffed avocado as well, any combo plate and the fajitas!! Great atmosphere and food! Free ice cream during... More

From start to finish...a great meal! For starters...the green sauce and hot sauce are on point. Loved them both. Then...the food. WHAT!?! We tried the cheese enchiladas and the smoked pulled pork enchiladas. Both were fantastic. Usually, there's something I don't like on the plate. Not this time at Gringo's. The black beans were very flavorful. The rice was tasty.... More

I usually get the chile relleno, I do beef fajita instead of the traditional cheese or ground beef filled relleno. This is pretty much my favorite dish at any Mexican restaurant (about 5 years), but I recently started with a carne guisada trend. It is served in a small cast iron skillet dish with warm tortillas. I am pretty much... More

i love the chalupas and all the fresh trimmings, salsa chips are always fresh and so are the great bar drinks.

Great atmosphere, great food and always great service. Have been going to Gringos for several years and have yet to be let down. Seafood Enchiladas and Pollo Marisco are at the top of my list of favorites. I will say the green sauce and chips have to be the best in Texas.

Food was very good and service was excellent. Wait staff was very friendlt. But plan on waiting for your table. Yestwrday we waited for maybe 10 minutes but all other times we waited up to an hour. They don't do reservations but should.

Thank Kathy G
