Gringos & Mariachis is an upscale version of a Mexican cantina, with spectacular murals, comfortable leather banquettes, and some of the best margaritas you will find anywhere. The place is packed, lively, and fun, and extensive list of tequilas, whiskies, and mescal is one of the reasons behind their exciting atmosphere. The other is the menu, which features everyone’s favorites such as street tacos, enchiladas, burritos, tamales, nachos, and much more.
Choosing is the problem, when it comes to both margaritas and tacos: the fresh jalapeño with cucumber margarita, sweet but not too sweet ginger-hibiscus margarita, or a smoky margarita with mescal? And who can pick only one when tacos come with such quirky fillings like lamb with salsa verde, fish with sriracha and cabbage, and Berkshire pork with pineapple and onion? Why not seat at the fun bar made of recycled wood and let the bartender surprise you?
