Gringo’s offers flights of any three cocktails on its menu, which includes a few types of margaritas and a bunch of other tequila and mezcal-focused drinks, for $15. That and the $3 beers during Happy Hour are why you should come to this big, colorful spot with a group, especially during nice weather when the outdoor patio is open. But you don’t need to come here for the food, and if you’re looking for high-quality tacos downtown, head to La Taqueria Downtown instead.
