Come for the fresh fish or shrimp tacos, fantastic guacamole, stay for the friendly staff and good drinks. Gringo's is a locals favorite. It's a small restaurant near the VB oceanfront. Not fancy, just great food. It gets busy at night, so expect a wait.

The food is wonderful!! It may get crowded at times so get there early. There is a brewery next door and you can take out from here and go next door if you want beer.

I got the fresh bowl with shrimp and pineapple salsa and my husband got the fresh bowl with carne Asada. We took it across to back bay brewing. It was filling without being too much food. Hit the spot!

I noticed the mixed reviews but I have to be honest I like this place. The cheese sauce for the nachos is great. I usually have the shredded pork bowl and it is great. The beer is cold and the prices are nice and low....More
