When you enter Los Gallos, you'll experience traditional Mexican decor in a fresh, relaxed atmopshere. Many of the paintings and adornments were actually purchased south of the border, and give the restaurant an authentic feel. But no amount of decorations could make a Mexican restaurant great without authentic food, and that is one thing that Los Gallos is sure to offer.
If it's your first time at Los Gallos, start off with the Ceviche. This authentic Mexican appetizer could be described as a marinated seafood cocktail.

If you're in the mood for steak, we suggest the El Vaquero. The chef cooks a 12-ounce sirloin steak to perfection, then tops it with grilled mushrooms, Chihuahua cheese and special red sauce. This tender steak is a melt in your mouth masterpiece. Its juicy, rich flavor offers the right mix of taste and texture that will make you a life-long customer. Ole!
If you're on an intimate date and want to share a meal with your sweetie, the Casuelada Jalisco, A Dinner for Two, is the perfect choice. Shrimp, chicken, beef and chorizo are served on a sizzling plate with grilled onions, tomatoes, bell peppers, broccoli and mushrooms.
This fantastic dish is served with rice, beans, lettuce, guacamole, sour cream, tomatoes and tortillas for two. Priced at only $24.99, she'll be yours forever.
If you're of legal drinking age, consider washing all of the hot food down with a cold Margarita. Frozen or on the rocks, Los Gallos' Margaritas are loaded with flavor. Try a traditionial lime Margarita or experiment with flavors like strawberry, mango, pina coloda, peach, raspberry or banana. Sweet or tart, this exotic beverage will get you ready for a good meal with great friends.
If at all possible, please save room for dessert and try the Xango. Cool, delicious cheesecake is rolled in a tortilla and fried until it is covered with a crispy, golden brown crust. The cool inside's contrast to the warm outside gives your mouth the perfect ending to a perfect evening.
