The Big Nachos with chorizo were good. Very different than the southwest US. Flavors of the toppings were very nice. I did find the cheese sauce served under the chips to be a bit dull. Excellent salsa. It was very cold in the restaurant. Unfortunately, I had to eat faster than normal before the food got cold. From the flyer... More

My girlfriend and I currently live in the neighborhood and decided to stop in for a taste of Mexican in a city not well-known for it. What a pleasant surprise. As an American, quality Mexican food is something I've not only grown quite accustomed to, but now very much miss from time to time. Our dinner (mixed chicken/steak fajitas for... More

A nice garden inside, good service, good food. A little bit different from other restaurants in Vincennes. I'll go back next time.

Quite a basic restaurant, but very friendly service and lovely food. I had the mixed grill which was massive and left no room for dessert. Nice pot of pop corn and basket of nachos provided free as nibbles at the start of the meal. Great value overall.

I came to write a review of El Gringo and was a bit surprised to see all of the negatives reviews previously published here because I had a different experience. A friend took me here for the first time and admittedly the exterior looks a bit tacky and not all that inviting. However, I was so happy to be able... More
