Starting this one since others have asked we get off the Coming and Going thread


If you haven't done so, I suggest downloading the TexMex Insiders app. You can get on the waitlist there.

Also if you join the club for $25, you get $25 to use for a future
visit and earn points each visit. Very similar to Landry's program.

Marisco bowl. You can get tortillas with it. I thought it was good. Shrimp, crawfish, cheese, thin layer of beans. Can't remember if it had rice.

Editing - it does have rice as the photo shows

Their chicken enchiladas are some of the best I have ever had. Love the poblano cream sauce.

You don't have to join have the app or join the club to get on the wait list. You can do it from their website.

Gringos - College Station - join wait list

Eaten at Gringos in Houston many times, food is much better there than here. I imagine they are still working out kinks.

Only been to Gringo's once here, but thought it was just as good as the locations I have eaten at in Houston many times.

LOL. Yes. I didn't look that closely (it was a few weeks back).

We got their fajitas curbside the other night, they were probably better than anywhere else we've had here in town.

ate there earlier in the week, got on the waitlist online 2 hours early and got seated quickly. Food was fast and tasty, beef fajitas cooked perfectly

I think they are pretty good. Not amazing but good. They have happy hour 4-6 weekdays (not 100% sure about Friday).

Wife got a pineapple margarita that was excellent. Not too sweet, and even a little savory.

Ate there Friday. It was good, not great. I got the seafood enchiladas. The shrimp seemed like the precooked/frozen kind, but covered in the cheese and sauce, it was fine. My wife got the ribeye street tacos and they were a little bland and dried out. Service wasn't great, but that's to be expected early on. Chips seem like Tostitos and I wasn't impressed by the red salsa. No flavor really other than tomato. Green sauce was fine.

Agreed. It was good, but not great. Probably won't end up back there for a while. Definitely not even close to Pappasitos level. Lupe Tortilla is a better in town option for us.

I agree with the good but not great sentiment. I will probably stick with Camino's as my goto mexican for now. its about on par quality wise, but cheaper and no wait.

I wasn't impressed with the red salsa either. However, the spicy red salsa served with the ribeye street tacos is very good (and very spicy). Next time I go, I'm going to ask for that instead when the chips and salsa are brought to the table.

Agree with this. Food was great though. Easily best Mexican food in town.

We like Gringo's, but there are plenty of places around BCS that are just as good. Some better.

nothing spicy on the menu there, so the name gringos fits.

It's decent. But I haven't really found a place in Brazos valley that I consider very good.

Have you been to Cielito Lindo in Waller? Not really Brazos Valley but relatively close.

Margs were good. Tortillas for fajitas were not fresh, asked for replacement they were no better. Cheese enchiladas were made with too much flour in the gravy. Not near as good as Spring location. Hoping they work it out.

I want to note that my "better than anywhere else" comment was specifically about getting them curbside. I've definitely had better in-restaurant. But their curbside "family fajita pack" was good, and a pretty good value. Lots of guac/salsa/rice/etc compared to when you normally get fajitas to go.
