Pinche Gringos were by far the best we had in Feb.08. Jamie was one of the owners of El Oasis a few years ago and now runs Pinche Gringos. They did not have the smoked marlin or crab(out of season) but the schrimp were excellent, and the sauces are the best.

On the Ejido side of the highway, just north of Juarez. It's a bit of a hike from the tourist areas.
