What a great little find in Virginia Beach! This simple taqueria makes amazing fish tacos and fantastic salsas. Try the pineapple salsa.

This is a small locals spot. Food is amazing - not the typical Mexican fare. The Guacamole is full of flavor. Burritos are huge - you won't be disappointed. Margaritas are awesome, just make sure you have a ride home!

Gringos Taqueria, located near the Virginia Beach oceanfront, offers a variety of Baja style tacos, burritos, and much more. We use only the freshest ingredients in all of our traditional recipes – we don’t even have a freezer. Like fish tacos? (Mmmm our favorite!) We guarantee that our homemade habanero cream sauce will have your mouth watering for a second serving. Margaritas? Oh yeah, we got that too! We fresh squeeze our sour mix and mix it with freshly made simple syrup and top-shelf tequila to make our Baja style margarita. If you prefer, let us open your favorite domestic or import brew. Thanks to all of our lifelong locals!!
