A tortilla makes a handy mouse pad, an acceptable patch for stiff denim jeans, and, if you draw a face on it, an ideal companion on fishing trips. But there are many other uses for it, as today's Groupon proves: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican cuisine and drinks at any of the three El Gringo Mexican Restaurant locations in Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, and Redondo Beach. In a casual setting, El Gringo tackles the problem of Mexican food deprivation by stuffing stomachs with the culinary fortunes of Mexico, such as cheesy quesadillas ($7.50–$9.95), meaty tacos ($3.75–$7.95), and big, beany burritos ($6.25–$10.95), all filled with fresh ingredients and moddable according to your palate’s demands. Follow this pretty blue link to find the restaurant’s full menu, defenseless and able to be read or licked freely.
Yelpers give El Gringo Mexican Restaurant in Redondo a three-star average. The Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach locations have a 3.5-star average, and TripAdvisors give the Hermosa Beach location an average of four owl eyes:
- Quantity and quality along with a great view of the ocean from their deck. – PghJared, TripAdvisor
- When I get mexican food, I'm rarely looking for the ambiance. I've been to a few El Gringo's and I've never been disappointed. The food is pretty good and you walk away pretty satisfied. – Pammy C., Yelp
