'Mexican' food. Spicy burgers and wings. Service is not finest. They don't take reservatios for two, only walk in's welcomed. I think that most of customers are usually couples, so it's kind a funny that no reservations for two, that is quite arrogant.

Thanks Jurius for your review! We are really sorry that you didn't like our service. We had last week (Februari 8th to Februari 12th) campaign for our new menu, when we did not take small reservations at all. Normally we are happy to take reservations of any kind of groups and also reservations for two we accept gladly. I hope... More

We have visited couple of times. Food is average. Nothing twist there to make you say wow. Basic Tex mex. But first visit was such a disaster. We waited our food over an hour, even kids didn't get the food earlier.

No surprises no big frustrations. The flavors are quite far from genuine Mexican and Margharitas only have a resemblance with the classic drink but does serve the purpose if a decent steak and glass of beer is on your mind.

We visited the restaurant on an early Saturday summer night. The staff was friendly and the service was fast. Good selection of texmex dishes and burgers on the menu. Food is good but not special. Good value for money.

I've visited this restaurant about 5 times and the food has been ok. Not stunning, but eatable. This time I ordered mexican tortilla burger. Nice idea, I thought. Somehow I assumed that there would be also cheese and other things that makes hamburger a hamburger. But no, only lettuce, some guacamole and salsa. My fault, I did not read the... More

After walking around for half a hour and finding most of restaurants closed we stumbled on this Mexican place. From outside it doesn't look like the most fancy place but inside was a nice suprice. Good atmosphere, nice music and friendly staff. The chicken wings were a bit of a dissapointment but our main course of Fajita and Burrito were... More

With high prices, bad quality and average service, I'm wondering how this place is gathering so good reviews. We ate burgers, which were really weird. They included only meat which probably never saw grill, with feeling of only boiled in water, and thrown to burger. It also included lettuce, marinated onion and fries. All that for >15€ is overpricing. Dip... More

A good choice for a family: my kids' (12, 14 and 16 years) favourite restaurant in Lappeenranta when mum and dad are too lazy to cook and ask them to choose the restaurant. Reasonable prices in Finnish standards, tasty food and many choices for adults and children. Also my foreign colleagues choose always this restaurant when they visit Lappeenranta -... More

Salaper��isen Juanitan, Tex Mexin ja hyv��n ruuan l��hettil��s tarjoaa niin maistuvat herkut kuin muikeat juomatkin niit�� kaipaaville.

Gringos tarjoaa monipuolisia herkkuja jokaiseen makuun. Keitti�� tarjoaa t��yden kattauksen aitoa Tex Mex-ruokaa, unohtamatta kuitenkaan kevyit�� salaatteja, kunnon pihvej�� ja rapeita chicken wingsej�� tai hampurilaisia. Ter��svatsoille on oma Chili Specialities -osio, josta l��ytyv��t eritt��in voimakkaasti maustetut ruuat. Chili Specialities -osio on rakennettu yhdess�� Chilikauppa.fi:n kanssa.

Gringos Locos sijaitsee Viihdemaailma Ilonan yhteydess��. Iltap��iv��st�� alkaen ravintola keskittyy ruuan tarjoiluun, mutta illan tullen siit�� tulee osa Ilonan y��kerhoja.
Ravintola sopii oivallisesti niin kaveri- kuin ty��porukoidenkin illanviettoon.

Tervetuloa makumatkalle, t��st�� ei Tex Mex parane.
