One of the BEST kept secrets in VA Beach! TERRIFIC food: fresh and tasty! The drinks are excellent as well. PERFECT for lunch or dinner after the beach or anytime!

What a great little find in Virginia Beach! This simple taqueria makes amazing fish tacos and fantastic salsas. Try the pineapple salsa.

This is a small locals spot. Food is amazing - not the typical Mexican fare. The Guacamole is full of flavor. Burritos are huge - you won't be disappointed. Margaritas are awesome, just make sure you have a ride home!

This is another nice local taco stand. Chips and salsa forever ending to go with meal. Extensive taco choices and PBR offered.

We ended up coming here after seeing that Pelons was under construction (Pelons is by far the best place for tacos drive to Norfolk if the one in va beach is still closed) Gringos service is slow and tacos are surely not the best anywhere. Flavorless and store bought tortillas. Very disappointing for 5.75 a taco.

if you drove past this restaurant you would probably miss it. It's not flashy at all but the food is super fresh and top notch. Best Queso and margaritas!!! Love this place

A hole in the wall place with the Surfer-Mex combo vibe down pat. Terrific fried fish tacos. Enchiladas with pork and verde sauce I will dream of. Prices are reasonable, service is friendly and prompt. Complimentary chips and salsa were spot on. Go. Really, go or you will be a huuuugggeee loser. Don't be a loser. Go to Gringo's!

Nice place, unassuming but delivers! Had a bit of a wait second time visiting but good is delicious and atmosphere is chill.
