About the restaurant
If you are seeking out some spice in Glenelg, Gringo’s is the place to be. Fiery favourites are served here in the form of a jam-packed burritos or the tasty taquitos filled with pulled beef or chicken. Located on Colley Terrace, Gringo’s attracts crowds of diners every day for both lunch and dinner, and with an outdoor seating area it’s perfect for soaking up the sun on a summer's day. We love the homemade chilli con carne which comes topped with cheese and a side of sour cream, Cuban lime rice and salad. To guarantee a table at this Adelaide hotspot, a reservation in advance is wise!
The entire Gringo’s operation is bursting with modern Mexican flair, and the goal is simple: premium quality food and drink at reasonable prices, served by a friendly team who are genuinely passionate about what they’re doing. This Adelaide restaurant on Colley Terrace in Glenelg is only small, but the welcome is huge and new owners Jesse and May do everything in their power to make sure that every visit to Gringo’s Mexican Cantina is a special one. So special, in fact, that this new ownership and the fantastic food produced as a result has been stirring up quite a buzz around the streets of Glenelg.
Often the case at some Mexican restaurants, but certainly not at Gringo’s of Adelaide, the menu here is laced with quality and it does not overwhelm with quantity. Start with some sharing nachos or some loaded potato skins dipped in Gringo’s homemade guacamole. For your main, tackle a taco combo or go big with the famous burrito ceno. Wash any or all of that down with some sangria or a craft beer or cider and it’s clear you’re onto a winner. Glenelg loves Gringo’s, and you will, too.
