Gringos – Jefferson, GA

by Melinda Patrick

I have lived in Jefferson, GA almost my entire life. It is a very small town that used to only have 2 red lights, but since then, it has really grown. If you are wondering where exactly, Jefferson is located, it is about 50 miles Northeast of Atlanta.  It is a great town and I am glad to call it home.

The place to go for delicious Mexican food in my small town is a restaurant by the name of Gringos. Whether you are going there for a quick bite, a drink, or to just hang out and catch up with friends, it is the perfect place to eat a great meal. You can sit outside on the deck and take in the nice weather or inside in the cool air conditioning. The staff is very friendly and will greet you right away when walking through the door. The service is very quick,  as the staff brings you waters, and starts you off on chips and salsa right away.  If you want an excellent cocktail, I’d suggest the skinny Margarita. A word of caution though- I would only order one if you want to make it home. LOL J  When dining with my family, one of the first things we like to order is their cheese dip, which is an absolute must if you’re a queso fan!.  For an entrée, I highly recommend ordering the grilled chicken over Mexican rice and cheese dip on top-it is so DELICIOUS!

So if you are ever in my neighborhood, and you get the chance to try Gringos, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
