–Attention college kids! The Gringo will be your new hangout spot in-between classes, finals, and exams. Run, don’t walk to The Gringo, the new taqueria and beer garden serving up margaritas, tacos, and fun childhood snack-themed churros (remember Pop Rocks and Oops! All Berries anyone?). Taking over the Grandview Tavern space at 1202 W. Grand Avenue, The Gringo boasts a 60-seat private back patio space complete with its own back bar.
Opened last Thursday, June 7th, customers will find a menu with 10 tacos (plus vegetarian options), 3 signature cocktails including a tasty-tangy “Prickly Passion Margarita” and fun dessert options that you may or may not have room to stomach after enjoying scrumptious tacos and boozy Froze.
As the name suggests, The Gringo is putting a spin on the traditional. From the funky decor (A painting of the “Girl With the Pearl Earring” rests on the walls near exposed piping), and Wood benches with a hint of North Side Ivy, The Gringo has “hangout spot” written all over. Take a look at some of the menu options below:
The Gringo, is located at 1202 W. Grand Avenue, open from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Sunday through Thursday; 11:30 a.m. to midnight on Wednesday and Thursday; 11:30 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
Stay informed, open-minded, and driven.
