Gringo Street did it again. Great food experience and fun atmosphere and the perfect cocktails for the occasion. Our vegetarian loved the cauliflower and cheese tacos. I tried the trio of skewers. They were excellent. Chicken is the best with the middle eastern seasoning. Great sized portions. Peanut guacamole rocked as usual. My wife loves the Latin Kings drink. We are coming back again for sure.

Everything was great until we went to pay. We wanted to use a open table cheque and they refused to take it. Our waitress and the hostess were nice and tried to explain why but offered to get the manager. He came over and was very rude about the whole thing says it’s not legal tender and they have the right to refuse it and wouldn’t discuss it further. It felt like he was accusing us for trying to rip them off when we just wanted to use the $26 towards our meal since we don’t get out often in this economic climate.

This place has gone downhill fast. None of the servers we met were there for more than one month. Food was the worst we had there.

Sad as it use to be good .

Amazing food and drinks as always. Service a little slow. Tried to order food before happy hour ended and our server seemed to be dodging us a few times.... had to flag her down 4 minutes before happy hour ended. Felt compelled to order less because our server wouldn’t take food orders and drinks at the same time which seemed a little counterproductive. I totally understand it gets busy but there must be a way to streamline the process, considering most people who come in before 7 expect the happy hour pricing.

Love the food and the price but generally not a comfortable place to eat. We made a table reservation on open table because we didnt want to sit at the bar but when I got there the guy said there weren't any tables available, despite my reservation. We sat at the bar by the kitchen and it was SO hot and SO loud and we kept getting hit by everyone passing by. Also one of the cooks was very unprofessional, he was loud and swearing and getting mad at other employees. Was not a pleasant dining experience and even though I enjoy the food, I probably won't go back.

Corn bread is world class best I've had. That jalapeno oil they use is stellar but be prepared for a little payback the next day.

Unreal food - the mushroom fundido and guiness braised short rib tacos are at the top of my list and you can never go wrong with the classic margaritas.

Our servers were fantastic, every restaurant should be so lucky as to have staff like that. The food was great for the most part, flavours were amazing. The only issues were with the tortillas for the tacos, they were lousy and the veggie tacos were really bad. Fix that and it is 5 stars.

We arrived for our reservation of 5 people and were greeted immediately by name by the manager, a nice touch. The server came to our table and got cocktails and wine service started while she explained the menu and dropped off a complimentary pork rind snack. Unknown to us, we had a guest with a few crazy allergies, not only were they very accommodating, the manager and chef actually edited a copy of the menu to illustrate what was available and safe to eat for our guest. Way beyond anything I have experienced in a restaurant and made the evening that much more enjoyable. Keep killing it and we will keep coming back!

The fundido is a must try if you love cheese! Everything I have tried is amazing! I would not recommend this place if you are looking to have a deep conversation or a catch-up, it is very loud inside!

The service was very strange; our server pushed the "up sell" very overtly and it was off putting. The food did not come in the sequence we had specifically requested, and when the food did come it was not very tasty. The food was also very overpriced. I would not recommend this restaurant.

Our server clearly did not k ow the menu. Told her I was celiac and she said everything was good to go. Received our tacos and I noticed that one of them was breaded, she said it was ok for me to eat. THEN came back 2 mins later and said it was not gluten free. I almost ate it and almost got so so sick. Not ok.

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.

Experience at the restaurant was good and I had a great night. However I had made a reservation for a table and never got one. We got placed at the bar and we’re told they were all full. This wasn’t a dealbreaker for us but it was slightly disappointing considering I made a reservation. Would still recommend

Food was average but the service was really good. Did find that it was a little louder than expected but it wasn’t terrible. There was no happy hour after 9 so that caught us by surprise as well. Overall it was a 3 star experience. Probably wouldn’t go back there again

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.
