Was looking for something different, not the usual pub grub or steak and chips. Delighted with my very tasty and colourful salmon salad. Excellent service. Didn't have anything to drink as it's all so expensive. Quite dark inside, but we sat near a window which...More

'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.More

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...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....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...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....More

The mysterious Juanita's restaurant in Lappeenranta. This ambassador of Tex-Mex and good food offers both tasty delicacies and refreshing drinks. Gringos offers flavours for every taste. The kitchen offers a full selection of genuine Tex Mex food – not forgetting light salads, proper steaks, crispy chicken wings and hamburgers. For those with a belly of steel, we have the ultimate chili challenge – "La Pared De Fama". Gringos Locos is located at next to Night Club Union. The restaurant is excellent for groups of both friends and colleagues. There are 98 seats in our restaurant. Welcome on a journey of new flavours. Tex Mex doesn't get any better than this!
