Open late till 3am and later, Gringos Locos is perfect for grabbing some Tex-Mex grub after hitting up the bars downtown.
The place is a bit of a dive, dark and with relative few seats. No matter, as most hungry patrons probably are going in just for a quick bite to satisfy their late night munchies.
They serve up some creative if inappropriately named dishes, mostly burritos, tacos, chips and queso and salsa, enchiladas. I went for the Double D’s, a “double decker” taco made with a queso spread on a soft tortilla wrapped around a crunchy hard shell and then filled with cheese, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, and some pork meat, a flavorful choice. The fish tacos I tried were a bit bland and a bit too wet for my liking, maybe would have helped with some spicier salsa.
The fish tacos…could be better.
but he pork double d’s were a hit!
I went here for lunch on Wednesday and ordered the “Sloppy Tacos” which had ground beef. I figured they were called that just to be inappropriate sounding, as you mentioned. Nope. The ground beef was actually seasoned with Sloppy Joe mix. I choked them down since I was hungry, but the chips & queso didn’t fare so well. The queso tasted kind of sour to me, so I ditched it. Glad the pork tacos you ordered fared well. Maybe I’ll give them another chance.
