We weren't allowed to use our open table cheques. They said they bounced and could not accept our $52.00 open table rewards. Also we were there for happy hour and having a good time and told settle our bill cause there was a reservation waiting for 6:30pm. There was no disclosure on time limit when we booked and sat at our table and were with friends we hadn't seen in a while. We were catching up and caught off guard/pressured to leave when we were spending almost $300.00 between all of us already and not ready to leave. They were pushy and aggresive with clearing our glasses and felt like we didn't matter, when we were spending a good amount of money there. We do not feel like valued customers and doubt we will be back, it seemed unprofessional and was more about the turn over than the experience.

Great food experience. We enjoyed the Guacamole with chips.
The cauliflower cheese tacos were a hit. The custom cocktails with a surprise were unexpected and a ton of fun. We will be back.

I love Mexican food and this is my favorite spot yet! The server was incredibly helpful with menus (gluten free), the tacos were so inventive and flavorful, drinks were very tasty. Can't wait to check out happy hour on the patio if summer ever decides to arrive! Maravilloso!

Gringo Street has a delicious variety of affordable tacos. The service was great and the atmosphere is cozy but vibrant. The one flaw is the price of the cocktails but, other than that, it was a really good experience.

I love this visit more than my previous. Last time we were seated at the bar and and it was well past 10 pm and the place was packed. Everything was great, but I couldn’t hear clearly unless I leaned in. Plus it was also damn cold out. This time we arrived in the late afternoon on a beautiful spring day to find the place bright and quiet. We were seated at a high top and ordered a couple cocktails and some queso before the dinner crowd piled in. It was our daughter’s birthday & the servers & hostess were all so great at making her first visit there special. I’m certain she’ll be back, as will we again! Thank you!

Gringo Street has good decor and a nice vibe. The variety of tacos is great. It’s a great place for a quick snack or a full meal. I suggest making a reservation because it can get quite busy.

The happy hour however, is misleading. Not all the tacos are on happy hour, and I was told you need to order an alcoholic drink per person to participate. I would suggest they change the happy hour policy to allow everyone to enjoy the specials. If anything, people should be able to pay for and order non alcoholic drinks to be able to receive happy hour tacos because not everyone drinks.

We had reservations but were rushed to order by our server and also rushed to be out by 730 as they had other bookings. For the price they are charging I shouldn't feel like I have to rush through me meal or order one less drink because they say it is time to go. I will not be returning.

The overall experience was decent. But when I booked the reservation i specifically chose not to sit at the bar, however we were sat at the bar. I’m sure this was just a technical error with the OpenTable app. The sever was a doll she tried hard to get us a table. I’d go back for sure, food and service was great

The meal was so delicious!! The sweet potato was amazing and the churros dish is out of this world!! That’s not to mention all the delicious tacos (loved the mushroom one, especially).
