When you just can't handle another Thai dish this restaurant makes a great change. The food and service is fantastic, margaritas plentiful and cheap and a chat with the owner at the end of the night makes for a memorable experience.

Glad that you enjoyed your meal at Gringos. Developing the Thai - Mex fusion was a lot of fun trying to get the right flavors matched took a while. We really appreciate you taking the time to write us a great review!

Gringos is an open air restaurant with ceiling fans throughout the restaurant. We also have an outdoor area with portable fans if required. We serve traditional Tex - Mex dishes, but we also have a couple of Mex - Thai and Mex - Indian fusion dishes. There is a good sized Vegetarian Tex - Mex selection or you can go the other way and order Burgers, Steaks, chops and some fish meals of the BBQ, the Pork ribs are very popular. For those that want Thai food we have joined with the Thai Garden Restaurant for great traditional Thai dishes and they also specialize in a selection of Issan Food dishes. Want something simple we do salads, pizzas, pasta, we can also make you up a plate of Chicken & Chips. Top it off with a Deep Fried Ice Cream or Homemade Apple Pie Come in between 2 PM & 7 PM and choose one of our 14 flavours of Frozen Margaritas and we will make you up a Litre for only 350 Baht Kids Menu Available This is our 20th year in Chaweng
