Spicy Gringo Restaurant

There is a restaurant in our  area called Spicy Gringo.  Some of the people we know rave about it so one time when we were coming home from Pittsburgh, we decided to  go there and try their food.
The place was vibrant with all their colorful  display of artworks.  I think the owner is a traveler and has a love of photography since there were so many photos  that were hang on the wall.
There were a couple of customers inside when we came in so I had the feeling that the food might not be that good but since we were already inside, we decided to give it a try.
While we were waiting for our order, salsa and chips were served.
I am not sure if this place is more of a bar than a restaurant but I saw a lot of  different drinks in the bar area.
It took  a while for our food to  be served so I  went to the other room  where all these   different  artworks were displayed and  took more photos.  I hope you enjoy some of it.
The two artworks on the frames were my favorite.  If you just look at the photos, you will see faces but if you look closer, you will see  other characters in it.  Take a closer look and let me know what you see.
As we were waiting, we were contemplating of just leaving because there was a foul smell that was driving me nuts.  I wasn't sure if it was the one who were seated close to our table  but it was making me gag.
I thought I was the only one that smelled it but even my daughter smelled it too.
We couldn't do anything but   to laughed it off.
The guacamole was really good but their burrito  was bitter.  I think it was the sauce that it made it bitter but I  only ate half of my food   because I didn't like it.  I tried my husband's  rice and it  tasted raw so I really didn't think it was worth the try.  If I were to give them ratings  of 1 to 5, I'd probably rate them  1 for the food but the server was nice so I will give  them 2.5 overall.
Don't get me wrong, I love Mexican food but this is by far the worse I've had  in all the places we've tried.  Then again,  people have different opinions and that is just my opinion.  I won't recommend it.  At least now we know not to go there if we  ever have  Mexican cravings.  I like Chico Fiesta's food, my only issue with them is the BIG portions!

Sorry that you had such a bad experience, what with bad smalls and not very good food!!! Love the art work though so at least it gave you something interesting to take photos of. Take care and have a good week Diane
