As both resident of and someone who works in downtown Orlando, I’m always happy when a new restaurant or store opens. And while I was certainly sad to see Season’s Harvest close its doors (it’s still open for catering) I was definitely excited to hear about the opening of a downtown Orlando Mexican restaurant (and something different than the so-so Pancheros and Tijuana Flats).
So, did I check-it-out? You betcha.
Now first of all, I must mention that Gringos Locos is brand new. I definitely think they have a few kinks to work out in their operations, but I’m willing to give them some time. Service was pretty slow (food is made upon order) but my dish was worth the wait. The majority of my party was happy with their meals as well.
I enjoyed the “Gringo Enchiladas” (yummy green sauce, although one of my friends didn’t like it at all) along with delicious homemade rice & beans!
The dining area needs a little “livening-up” but there is some interesting artwork–available for purchase–on display:
Overall I was pretty happy with my new experience. Pricing at Gringo’s Locos was a bit high, in my opinion. But in general good experience. Am looking forward to returning once Gringos has gotten through all of its growing pains.
Have you been yet? We’d love to know what you thought.
