I noticed the mixed reviews but I have to be honest I like this place. The cheese sauce for the nachos is great. I usually have the shredded pork bowl and it is great. The beer is cold and the prices are nice and low. It is small and can get very crowded during the tourist season but don't let... More

Plan your visit on an off time if possible. It is off-the-beaten-path but accessible, with a limited number of tables and very informal. I judge the prices as moderate. The service friendly and efficient and the meal delivered in a timely manner. I would return and try some of their other dishes!

First, Gringo's only has a total of maybe 10 four seat tables and a bar that seats 9 so if you have more than 5 people in your party, your wait is going to be a while if you arrive after 5:30PM. I have to say that the hostess at Gringo's is amazing and makes the waiting much more pleasant.... More

Wow. Not sure even where to begin. We had heard good things about this place (from a food writer, no less!) and wanted to give it a try. We tried a few weeks ago and were turned away, as we were told they were closing shortly due to issues from a storm. We were not wise enough to take that... More

Me and my family visited while we were in Virginia Beach. My mom liked her tacos and my brother liked his as well. The steak fajitas that me and my dad shared were ok. Overall a good restaurant.
