Ola amigos and amigas! Those are the words that come in mind when I think of Gringo, a restaurant known for its delectable baked chicken. And when I found out that Gringo opened a branch in BGC, I was beyond ecstatic! I could finally sink my teeth into some of Gringo’s well-loved chicken.

Hello, Gringo.

After a tiring walk around High Street and Burgos Circle to do some errands, I decided to reward myself with a nice meal before heading back home. And it was the perfect time to stop by Gringo.

I was warmly greeted by one of the staff and ushered me to a vacant table. He quickly handed the menu and gave me a glass of cold water.

After some thought, I ordered Quarter of Gringo Original Chicken with two sides (PHP225). For sides, I went with marbled potatoes and roasted squash. I also got a glass of House-brewed Iced Tea (PHP75).

Service was fast as my glass of iced tea was served after three minutes. And it sure was no Nestea or Lipton.

I have nothing against the two popular brands but I just do not like it when restaurants claim that they served house-brewed iced tea only to drink those ready-to-drink ones. Gringo’s iced tea has a nice dark tea taste which I love. But it’s best to wait for the ice to melt a bit as the drink could be a bit too flavorful to quench one’s thirst. (But hey, that means more iced tea!)

My plate of baked herby chicken was served next and I quickly took some snapshots without realizing that one of the sides I got was wrong. Instead of squash, I got eggplant. But the staff quickly replaced it after I pointed it out.

And true to most reviews, Gringo’s chicken delights and tickles the taste buds. The poultry marinated in various herbs and lemon was indeed flavorful and juicy. It was like a healthier version of KFC, only way better! It didn’t need any of the two sauces it comes with.

I would have preferred my sides to be a bit mushy as I found both to be too hard. But I guess it was cooked as such to add texture to the beautifully moist chicken. Just don’t expect for equally tasty side dishes as these ones were lightly seasoned.

Overall, it was a very pleasant dining experience. I didn’t get weird looks from the crew as I get the centerpiece from the other table for flat lay. Service was quick and everything was affordable.

Will I go back? Definitely!

I am not a fan of nachos but their nachos are awesome, they're generous with the cheese and the beef on the nachos(yes I think it is beef)

FOOD:

Gringo Original Chicken : Super yummy chicken! Its juicy, soft, and undeniably tasty!

Dirty Rice : I don't know what's with the rice but its super yummy! Kinda oily tho.

Gringo Original Baby Back Ribs - Super tender baby back ribs with just the right amount of bbq-ish flavor on it. Not too sweet also compared to other ribs.

Corn - love this!

Nachos on the side - The only thing I didn't enjoy. Super plain / bland nachos.

A meet up with hubby's college buds led us here to gringo which is walking distance from their respective condos. Servers will greet you 'Ola!' upon entering so I said 'Ola! Vamos a Comer! Hehe 128513
They made reservations ahead of time and we were led to our table. Interiors were Latin themed slash industrial without trying hard. Servers were nice and attentive as well.
Prices were surprisingly good despite being in the Fort area. They also have quite an extensive menu that I had a difficult time deciding on what to get. Settled on the Buffalo taquitos which I thoroughly enjoyed (but arrived last). Our friends also enjoyed their tacos, nachos, mussels and chicken. However hubby didn't like their burrito as much, too bad.
Loved the gringo Margarita! It's not your usual glass as it has a coronita inside which you can drink bit by bit as you empty your drink! The berry sangria was good too!
Glad was able to try this place out 128522

Celebrated my friend's birthday @ GRINGO's one Thursday night. 127881

The NACHOS was really good. As my friend would describe it "Grabe yung nachos! Yung melted cheese sa taas tas ang daming pulled pork!". It was really cheesy and loaded with pulled pork! And best part is it's free!!! My friends were both drinking beers while I'm busy eating nachos. 128518 Btw, you get this for free if you get 8 bottles.

TUNA TACO was good w lot's of veggies but soooobrang konti ng tuna. 128557

GRINGO SOUTHERN SPICY CHICKEN CHICKEN. Chicken was just okay. Usual roasted chicken. I still prefer S&R's or Baliwag's roasted chicken (sorry 128517).

For our sides, we tried MASHED POTATO, MACARONI SALAD and MASHED SWEET POTATO.

Friend # 1 loved her mashed potato, it was soft and very creamy. Friend # 2 said the macaroni salad was just okay. Nothing extraordinary.

And lastly the MASHED SWEET POTATO.. as much as I would want to LOVE it just like my other officemates, I just can't. I wasn't happy with this one. It was too rich and creamy that I can't taste the sweet potato anymore. Should have tried the saba or fried sweet potatoes instead. 128530128530

SERVICE was good. Fast service and all servers were approachable, attentive, and helpful. 128077🏼

PLACE. Very garden-y. Chill and relaxed. The place though not as spacious was decorated and designed well. Also, the place is neat and clean.

I had the Southern spiced quarter chicken with two sides: mexican rice and buttered corn (Php 235.00)

The chicken is tender and tasty with lots of spices and a hint of lemon. It really goes well with the mexican rice that I chose. Buttered corn was good according to my 3 yr-old son who apparently likes anything with corn. It also comes with a good amount of nachos which I also liked. The 2 kinds of sauces (hot sauce and lemon herb sauce) are good but nothing beats the sauce from Eduardo's 128522

The staff are very attentive and friendly too.

Gringo Baby Back Ribs with Garlic Rice and Mashed Potato

I wish I can have this everyday... 128525

A masterpiece indeed!

Btw, they have several sides to choose from and it is also optional. I just want to have carbs, carbs, and more carbs! 128514

Quarter Gringo Original Chicken 225Php

Baked chicken served with 2 sides (Mexican rice and marble potato salad) also includes nachos!

This is my second visit and my second review for Gringo. Their welcome greeting is really fun... "Ola! Welcome to Gringo!" Everyone greets you with a smile. Everyone looks pleasant and well-groomed. They're also very attentive and quick.

The baked chicken is superb! Lemony and you can taste the unique blend of spices. It is perfectly cooked. Tender and moist. The lemon and spicy dip made it more delicious.

Everything on my plate is delicious. That's it!

Can't wait for my third visit. 128521

Was just ok for me. Sayang.

We arrived at 9:00 PM on a September weeknight and there was still a wait of 20 minutes for us. Not bad for a popular place.

We got a plate of ribs and a plate of chicken. Too bad there's no chicken and ribs combo. Chicken was good, i can rate it a likable 4, but not a super loved it 5. Unfortunately it was RAW in the center and for that I give it a 1. Being a chicken place, they should know that serving raw chicken is a big no-no. We verbally relayed our comments to the server and in their comment card with my email but didn't get any reply from them. No offer to replace the chicken.

Ribs are ok, can't even remember how I found it so it didn't make an impression on me. Pass on their marbled potato salad, not good. We liked their black beans. Sides had generous portions. No mashed kamote available.

We were seated at the small table for 3 near the bar and it was very warm there. My brother was sweating. It took us several times to ask for cutlery.

Food is good but our overall experience probably took out the pleasure of dining here. I want to give it a 2, primarily for the raw chicken but sayang naman the credits i can't give out if I did.

I might try this again only if friends insist on eating here.

Gringo for the hungry Gringa. 

After reviewing x number of work-related stuff and my staring match with excel spreadsheets, i needed a good meal to end my hectic day.

I didn't have any particular restaurant in mind but when push comes to shove,  Banh Mi Kitchen is nearby.  Then Gringo happened.  Chicken sounds like a good idea.

I love Gringo's interiors.  Excellent lighting and they used container van parts on the walls.  I like the idea as it exudes creativity and it makes 'em stand out.  The place reminds me of the bar Helena where Jesse and Helena met.  No truckers,  no Ukrainian Assassin binge drinking White Russians and brighter than the usual.  And oh,  i like the fact that they used cactus to adorn the tables. 

| Southern Spiced Chicken (php 235).   This comes with a chicken quarter with two sides.  I picked corn x carrots and macaroni salad for my sides.  Apart from the modern x industrial interior,  they also use colorfol crockery.  Brilliant!  As the colors create an appetising facade of the dishes and yes,  it looks mighty fine in photos. 

Oh yeah,  the taste...you ask.   I love the chicken.  They know how to cook fowl.  The flavor is on point,  it's just that the sauce thingy they used to coat the chicken is too much...it gets a lil cloying after a couple of bites.  Maybe it's better when paired with rice....hmmm.  And oh,  it's not spicy enough for my Dragon Lady Standards.

Gringo is a good option for affordable and comfort food.  I might visit them again soon.  The ribs sounds interesting.

Peace Out!

"Ola! Welcome to Gringo"

I ordered their Southern Spice Chicken with 2 side dishes (Mexican white rice and marble potato salad) and they have included a good amount of nachos for 235 pesos.

It looks good and it taste even better. A must try!

The place has great ambience and good music.

Excellent customer service. Everyone is very accommodating and attentive. The service is fast.

Will definitely go back. 128156

Gringo is the newest Chicken and Ribs place in town.

It's a latin restaurant that also serves nachos, soft tacos and many more.

Was able to order a couple of their best sellers on my first visit. I specifically liked their tender and flavorful baby back ribs that falls off the bone. Ribs Muchos can serve 3 to 4 people, as long as you order something else.

I wasn't so thrilled about their chicken, maybe cause the ribs was way better.

Make sure to order their Chili Con Carne Fries ans Nacho Grande for starters.

Spent Php3,500 for a good and heavy lunch for 6.

Will definitely bring my family here.
