Gringo’s in Huddersfield is certainly gaining a reputation as one of the best restaurants to hit West Yorkshire. Serving Mexican dishes in a warm atmosphere of orange and purple design, it is a vibrant and happening place to eat and chill out.

Years of travelling in Indonesia, Australia, Fiji and America, experimenting with foods and cultures, has given Chris Lee and Ben Franco the experience and individuality to offer diners exciting creations, and it is paying off.

The restaurant is becoming a haven for those wanting quality food and service.

The décor is a funky mix of 1960s refurbished furniture, distinctive wall designs and shattered bullet proof glass in frames!

Please Note: tastecard members can order from The Orange Mexican a la carte menu only, offering Mexican delights such as fajitas, chimichangas and enchiladas, there is something for everyone. All tastecard diners at Gringo's receive a discounted drink at Buddha Bar situated next door.

Katherine said "Fantastic Food
I have eaten at this restaurant many times over the last 6 years and have always found the food to be of consistently great quality, the portion size is very generous so I have never made it as far as a desert!

My now 13 year old is particularly fussy but always enjoys the food here, she usually orders a range of starters rather than a main, and we have tried pretty much everything on the menu and never been disappointed. I am very much looking forward to the new dishes which are advertised in the restaurant as coming soon.

Booking was easy, I have on occasion called to book and the staff have missed my call, they have always called back quickly which has been very convenient for me.

A good range of beverages are available and the prices are reasonable.

I didn’t really find that the tastecard was any benefit to me on this visit as the items which we ordered are BOGOF at the time we visited, this said tastecard or no tastecard Gringos is great value and I will defiantly continue to eat here. "

Rachael said "Delicious!
Dined here last Tuesday as a party of five.

Booked the week before and the staff were very friendly and accommodating, even when I called again to change the time of our reservation.

The food was to die for. I had the cheesy nachos to start and the chicken chimichanga for my main and it was perfect.

It’s safe to say that we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and will be dining at Gringo's again in the near future. "

Dean said "Not great :(
Having heard good things about the restaurant, I booked a table to celebrate my birthday (something I stated in my booking request). We arrived a little early and were asked to wait for our table to be prepared - fine, not a problem. What was a problem was seeing 7:45 roll past, having to wait 30 minutes after my booking time to be seated and see people who entered the restaurant after us, with tables booked later than ours being seated ahead of us. The staff didn't talk to us, apologise for the wait or attempt to keep us informed. We had to ask twice what was going on before we got an answer.

When we sat down, the food took a long time to arrive and then they got one of our party's order wrong, which was taken back. Again, there was no communication about what was going on or how long it would be. By the time it arrived correctly, many of us had already finished. We were told that the item would be free of charge, yet when the bill came it was present and we had to dispute it.

All in all, the food was fairly decent and I'm sure the venue has a nice buzz and atmosphere, but having started badly and coupled with the poor service, my experience was disappointing. I could forgive having to wait for tables and food if the place was packed, but there were a number of empty tables so it's not like the staff were rushed off their feet and that would in no way excuse the poor service that we received. I doubt I would go back. "

" I have been to Gringos many times and love the food there, as Mexican is my favourite type of food. The only negative was to receive half price on the Mexican half of the menu you had to eat before 7 but now I have my taste card there is not time restriction and makes the price of the meal really cheap for the quality and quantity of food served. For anyone who likes fajitas, got for the chicken ones, they're amazing! "

" Worst portion of spare ribs as a starter I have ever had - virtually all bone in a dried up sauce. The main course was of average standard. Lost count of the number of times that the staff referred to us as 'guys'. "
