About Hey Gringo

Melbourne’s vaqueros and, yep, gringos that like to don a sombrero once in a while congregate here at Hey Gringo, a Latin American restaurant and Mexican cantina on Prahran’s High Street. The concept is as simple as a tequila shooter – combine tacos, beer, beats and eats with a soulful selection of music for the quintessential south-of-the-border experience. Happy hours here are long and daily, from 4pm until 7pm, during which you can grab house spirits and gringo pints for just a few pesos plus two-for-one selected cocktails. Grab some Mexican-style tapas – raciones – to share between collaborators, tacos and quesadillas, burritos, and asado, whole cuts of chicken, steak, pork, and seafood roasted over glowing coals. ¡Ay!

Pretty good value. Loved the food. Good service and variety of Latin American food and beer. It will probably be even better in summer since there are outdoor tables.

Booking said restaurant was filling up but the restaurant was empty. Food was average, not terrible but wasn't amazing. Was a good experience but probably won't go back.

Good service, plenty of room to spread out, tables are not too close together. We had the all you can eat tacos, yummy tortillas and fillings.

The food was horrendous, the worst meal we have ever had in Melbourne unfortunately. There was no atmosphere whatsoever either as no one else was in there!
