About Gringo's

If you are seeking out some spice in Glenelg, Gringo’s is the place to be. Fiery favourites are served here in the form of a jam-packed burritos or the tasty taquitos filled with pulled beef or chicken. Located on Colley Terrace, Gringo’s attracts crowds of diners every day for both lunch and dinner, and with an outdoor seating area it’s perfect for soaking up the sun on a summer's day. We love the homemade chilli con carne which comes topped with cheese and a side of sour cream, Cuban lime rice and salad. To guarantee a table at this Adelaide hotspot, a reservation in advance is wise!

Great family day for Mother’s Day, grandchildren love Mexican, so we were looking for Nachos, Quesadillas and Gringo provided them. Attentive service. Always been a favourite.

The enchiladas are yummy & not too spicy, my girlfriend who doesn’t usually eat spicy food loved them. The pot of fries was good value too. We will go there again.

Excellent food and drink. We had a great time. I can certainly vouch for the beef taquitos being awesome and sangria is right on the money

Great friendly staff and good food. Little noisy due to road traffic but a good quick feed in a handy location. Will visit again recommend

The food at Gringo's is very well priced for what you get. I enjoyed a delicious enchilada for $20 which wich was presented with rice and salad; the serving was generous. Although it was a Saturday night and it is expected that the food will not come out straight away, we did have to wait 55 minutes for our food to be served. The staff were very friendly and were happy to help. Overall, it was a very nice meal out, it would have been improved if we had lesser time to wait for our food.

The nachos I ordered was nice, but not the best I've had at Gringo's. Not quite enough cheese and frijoles. I asked for jalapeños, but there were too many - it doesn't have to be coated in them. As always, the guacamole was a stand out - lovely!

The service was fast; we ordered and had our meals (party of 5) within 10 mins, and the food was delicious. Servings were generous, and a highchair was available for our youngest. The only downside was that it was very noisy due to the loud engined vehicles going past the open frontage. With no physical barrier, those engines reverberated right through the restaurant but as it was fairly empty at the time, it was probably worse than usual.

The food was lovely as always...nachos are divine but maybe a little overpriced...still worth it. Service was a little slow considering it wasn't all that busy. A very relaxed environment with nice atmosphere and the frozen lemon margaritas are THE highlight.

Amazing food, I think the best Mexican at Glenelg. Waitresses could be a little more up beat, stood at the counter for a couple of minutes with one with her head down readin and didn't notice us for a while

Our booking through here didn't go through but the staff at Gringos were amazing and found us a table in the end. Food was amazing and sangria was even better.
