There’s a Perfect Taco for Everyone


Whether you are vegetarian, vegan, a meat lover or gluten-free, you can always find a taco that’s perfect for you. There are more infinite and creative ways to customize tacos than ever before. Your only issue now is to decide what tacos you want to order. There’s always something for everyone at Gringo’s, including the Pig Out taco with carnitas style berkshire pork and house pickled jalapeno and red onion, and the We Found Nemo with crispy basa fish and mango-jicama slaw. If you’re vegan or vegetarian, we have plenty of options for you too! Try our Go Green taco with sautéed baby bok choy, braised kale and vegan bacon slaw, or the Look Mom I’m Vegan taco with roasted carrot, charred cauliflower and grilled corn.

Tacos Pair Great with Drinks

What could be better than eating a taco and grabbing a drink? Tacos taste the best when you have beer, sangria or margarita in your hand. If you’re looking for some of the tastiest drinks to go with your tacos, Gringo’s has some of the best cocktails in Jersey City. Pair your taco with our El Gringo Margarita with blanco tequila, Cointreau and lime, or our delicious Nacho Mama’s Sangria with red pomegranate, white peach, watermelon rose and sparkling guava paloma. If you can’t decide on which drink you want with your taco, get our cocktail flight and choose any three to try. Or you can share one of our homemade punches with your whole table. If you’re more of a beer person, don’t worry! We have a full beer list to satisfy all of our beer lovers, like our Tangerine IPA.

There’s Never Just One Taco

If you’re hungry, you usually want more than one taco! Have no fear; we always serve two or three tacos at Gringo’s with our house-made corn tortilla or lettuce wrap for our vegetarian customers. If you’re looking to try something new, order a variety of our tacos to get the most out of your experience. Our El Pollo “Al Pastor” taco is excellent with free range thighs, al pastor seasoning, grilled pineapple, pickled red onion and salsa verde making it the perfect taco to try. If you’re really in the mood to try something different, order our Senor Pulp taco with flavorful grilled octopus, house chorizo, crispy potato, fennel slaw and smoky chipotle. Any one of our famous tacos is sure to please your taste buds!
