If I could give 0 for a service review I would. We were the only table in the restaurant and had to ask for service
Cancelled reservation day of, due to a private party
Decent food, but terrible service and ambiance. Was tempted to just get up and leave several times. Waiter gave my friend a hard time/shamed them for ordering a dish in an attempt to discourage them from ordering it. He later admitted it was because the cook didn't feel like making the dish. No apologies were made or attempts to remedy this. Furthermore, lots of disturbing/unappetizing content on the TVs that made it hard to eat (fishes being gutted, a program about facial reconstruction, etc.) They should be more aware/in-control of what programming they're presenting diners with. I nearly lost my appetite. Would not recommend - there are a million other restaurants like this one in Chicago and you'll have a better experience at one of those.
We used to love this place - the night before cinco de Mayo and it takes 3 hours for 4 tacos to be made. Awful.
Really good food, great prices. Came for Sunday lunch and they had a lot of items missing from the bar. Maybe ran out from Saturday night? Service was a little slow and some of the food didn’t come and the server had to check in the back. Other than that, good experience
What a great place! Unique tacos, amazing margaritas. What more could you ask for?
Gave 1 star reviews across the board due to the fact we didn't even get to eat at The Gringo. We had a 10:30 AM reservation and confirmed the reservation the day prior. Showed up for the reservation and the place wasn't even open! Nor did they appear to be opening any time soon. The door was locked....chairs were up on the tables....and no one was in sight.
Great tacos and churros!
Food was delicious! We went for brunch and tried the Benedict, steak and eggs, burrito, fundito, and a churro pancake. Must try!!
Went with a group of 10, had to sit outside cause indoor was small. Food wasn’t bad, actually enjoyed the brunch menu. Drinks were kinda expensive, but churros were great.
Claims all tacos except one are gluten-free on the menu and then brought me a taco that should have been gluten-free in a flour tortilla. When I asked them about it, they basically blamed me because I didn’t stipulate that I was g-free! Didn’t think I need to as menu clearly lists everything that is g-free and I ordered accordingly.
They comped some of our meal but I still can’t reco this place.
Tacos not that tasty either.
The ambiance and environment is as good as it gets. Can get better tacos elsewhere in Chicago
We went for brunch and had a wonderful time! Cant wait to go back!
