Best Mexican food anywhere in the area. I drive from Williamsburg to eat here! Clean, quaint, personable establishment. The owner is always there over seeing every plate before being delivered! Fair prices, nice portions. Promise you will not want to return to local chair style...More

A small restaurant close to the Ocean Front, tucked away in a small strip on Norfolk Avenue. And it is excellent. The interior is very down to earth and cosy, packed with customers for a good reason. Start with one of the super tasty and...More

Small but mighty!! I have always enjoyed the food at Gringo's - it is not a large restaurant, so either go at an odd time - or be prepared to wait - but the wait is worth it!

I'm from Texas and Mexican food is comfort food. Before I went to Gringo's I was convinced there was nowhere in VB that served even remotely decent Mexican. Look past the strange location and order two to three tacos per person. It's a bit pricey...More

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.
