Gringos has a spectacular green sauce to go with your chips and salsa. Their food is good, and the margaritas are great!. Their is plenty of room to wait for a table inside and out, there is even a place for the kids to play.

This is pretty good Tex Mex at an economical price. Can be crowded at peak meal times so plan ahead. They also do takeout. My favorite is the Mexican stew.
