Gringo Jack's Southwest Bar & Grill in Manchester, VT specializes in freshly prepared Mexican cuisine, but also has some items on the menu that you wouldn't expect to find. Every meal comes with their famous homemade flour tortilla chips and salsa. They're flaky, unlike any tortilla chip you've ever had. They're so good that even the New York Times has raved about them.

Start your meal off with one of Gringo Jack's margaritas. I love their blue margarita (pictured above). If you want more than chips & salsa, try one of their apps. They have nachos, chicken wings, bean dip and even calamari. Entrees at Gringo Jacks are always delicious and filling. On Saturday night, I enjoyed their "baja tacos," made with deep fried haddock and their killer secret sauce. It came with rice and beans. I can also recommend their burritos and fajitas. The shrimp fajita is amazing. If you're not a fan of Mexican, Gringo Jack's also offers salads, burgers and slow cooked bbq entrees including St. Louis ribs, pulled pork and beef brisket. There are plenty of vegetarian options and there's also a "lighter side" menu with entrees like grilled salmon, haddock and chicken. 

Gringo Jacko's is one of my favorite restaurants in Vermont. If you can, try to get a table outside. When the sun goes down, they'll light some tiki torches to set the perfect summer mood. If you can't get enough of their chips & salsa, you can buy some to bring home. Their products are also available at stores all over Vermont including at Grafton Village Cheese.
