Tonight we wanted something good that we could get quick. Gringos came to mind but we got it to go. We enjoyed the chicken fajitas for 2 and was very happy with our selection. The hostess took the time to make sure in my presence the order was correct. Great job. Keep up the good work!

Great food, good service, potent margaritas. My hubby and my fave tex-mex place in Galveston County. We've been coming here for 15 years. I haven't found better yet.

We always eat at Gringo's on our way to leave for a cruise. Their avocado sauce is amazing and the food is just as good! Pretty atmosphere, nice people, and a great experience every time!

Delicious Tex-Mex! The food truly hit the spot for this Texas ex-pat. Living in England at the moment I crave Tex-Mex all the time. And no, there is no real tex-mex in England! The cheese enchiladas hit the spot as well as my missed green sauce and chips, A real home cooked tex-mex meal, just what I needed.

Arrived about 4PM for a late lunch on my way to Galveston to board a cruise the next day. Discovered this place last year in December and plan my trips to the Houston area on where and when I can eat at Gringo's. I had an expired coupon and the new one that replaced it. I took both in on... More
