Gringo’s, a new “kinda sorta Mexican-ish” restaurant in Mt. Pleasant enjoyed their soft opening yesterday and reported that business is good.

Co-owners Reggie Kinney and Tom and Vicki Walker have had the idea of opening a restaurant for sometime, but it clearly developed into far more than the original plan of a hot-dog joint.

The fresh southwest menu features burritos, little burritos, tacos, salads, quesadillas, nachos, and fajitas. There’s also a kids menu with small nachos, small quesadilla, and a kids taco. While they aren’t serving alcohol, they do have a crushed ice coke that’s supposed to be pretty good. If you’re up for the drive, Gringos is located up 17 in the Market at Oakland Shopping Center in Mt. Pleasant.
