Sat on the patio on a busy Sunday evening. Great tasty meal- good service, meal took a little while likely due to the crowd. Recommend to anyone wanting a fresh and flavourful meal.

We had a reservation for a Friday night. Our drink order came through promptly, our food order not so much-maybe 45 minutes, which is a long time to wait with chips and (mild) salsa. I think we were on our second drinks before the food came, but don't recall. They have a selection of American food (burgers, chicken) for those... More

This has to be one of the best nachos we have ever had. Great blend of flavors with nothing overwhelming an thing else. Topped only be the cost during happy hour.

Had to wait to be seated because there was no clean silverware! Who needs silverware for chips and salsa and a Corona! Could have at least sat down and nibbled while we waited for the ware.... plenty of empty seats!!! Food was really good, flavor well developed and salsa was freshly made and tasty! Service was not that great however!

We went on a Saturday evening so it was very busy. Had a short wait at the bar, margaritas were very good. Wait staff was very friendly and attentive. The owner even came to every table to have a short visit. Mexican food to suit all tastes.

My husband & I are from Colorado and we are used to better Mexican fare. We found the food not to authentic Mexican food and rather bland. However some of our friends enjoy the restaurant.

We dined with friends who recommend the Los Gringos Locos. In my opinion this is an Americanized Mexican Restaurant. We dined with friends for a Sunday lunch. The place as busy, our server was friendly, but forgetful. Our food was barely warm, and the flavors rather bland. My Chiles relleno were not thoroughly cooked. The food is nothing like one... More

The margaritas were terrible. I'm not one to leave an unfinished drink, but this time I did. The food was also bad, and they do not really tell you what's is in your food. My friend cannot have dairy products, so she asked for the cream on a separate plate, they forgot to put the guacamole, and her food was... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant just once. It's a new building and the atmosphere is really nice. The food is the problem. I'm from the southern states where Mexican food is heavenly. The food there is so nasty and bland. The prices are outrageous
