Compared to other Tex-Mexican restaurants the taste/quality is average and a little less flavorful than I was expecting. The service can vary as university student population ebbs and flows. Expect to pay $15+ each for a combination meal, drink and dessert. It was nice but...More

I would recommend this place to everyone. The food is good and the waitresses are nice. They will do anything to make your visit pleasant. This is a locally owned and operated business. As for those who are mad because this isn't "authentic" Mexican food.......More

The food was good and the service is good. But it's definitely Americanized Mexican food so if you're looking for authentic Mexican cuisine, this probably isn't the place for you

There are a handful of "somewhat" authentic Mexican restaurants in the area, but this is definitely not one of them. Folks who have lived in the area for some time seem to like it. My guess, they haven't had real Mexican food to compare it...More

If you like real, authentic Mexican food, look elsewhere. Many locals love this place, but we have yet to find anything that is really authentic and has much flavor. There are a number of better options in Rexburg for authentic Mexican food.

Chips and salsa are a favorite. Not as good as it used to be :( Entrees were mediocre...rice was not good at all. Was a busy place.

They have some hidden charges for salsa for your free chips but other than that they are pretty honest. I have been hit an miss here with service which brings it down a star. Sometimes you can go in and have a great server and...More

This was not a good day to be at Gringo's. When we first walked in, there was no one at the front counter. We waited for literally 2 or 3 full minutes before I finally wandered to the back to see if someone was coming....More
