El Gringo was established in Hermosa Beach in 1986. Local restaurateur Bill Graw had a vision when he saw the Hermosa Beach landmark El Gringo for sale in 2001. After taking over the operation, El Gringo Mexican Restaurant has become wildly popular with locals and visitors alike. El Gringo has consistently been voted Best Mexican Restaurant by the locals. In 2004, El Gringo opened its second location in Manhattan Beach. In 2006, a location was opened in Redondo Beach based on the same model. The fourth El Gringo opened in El Segundo in 2017 serving full liquor. Through the years, as the beach communities have transformed, El Gringo has adapted to meet the changing lifestyles as a result of listening to the feedback of our loyal customers. We are proud to offer a variety of healthy items in addition to wines and craft beers. El Gringo has certainly come a long way in the past 30 years! We appreciate you choosing El Gringo as one of your dining choices.
