Management was very responsive since my last visit and had a great second visit! Per other reviews this place is jam packed, and I mean that in a good way. There is a reason why people come here. Got a lifelong customer out of me whenever I come up to visit the north side of town!

Happy crowd, great food, kid friendly, noisy, bustling. Guacamole is their signature dish. Caesar salad in a tortilla shell is delicious. Portions are generous so eat half and take the rest home for your next meal. JPL croud at lunch.

Los Gringos Locos was a place we kept in mind to return and try out. The food the staff and the services were great. The fact that the place was busy said a lot about the satisfaction of other guests. Would definitely stop by again and recommend anyone in the area to try this place.

The location has ample parking. The menu is extensive. Tried the fajitas, guacamole and drinks. Fajitas were OK - nothing great. The guacamole is made fresh at your table. Service can certainly be improved. Place feels and looks a bit dated.

FOOD: 4 STAR - Good food! Bent style Flautas YUM! Tableside guacamole! Service: 1 STAR - Dalila, our waitress, refused to split the bill of my party. She was also very slow for much of the time.

This is a pretty good place. They have guacamole that gets made at your table that is quite good and customizable. The food is pretty good. The fajitas were not too special but good. The flautas were outstanding and really big! One order is enough for 2-3 meals.

The food was quite tasty and their proportions are generous. Do not pass up the guacamole they had make at your table. It is delicious. The friend ice cream is also not to be passed.

Ok, the best thing is their margaritas. The food was great but the margaritas were darn good. Typical Southern Cal Mexican food that was done well.
