If you take a short drive down Atlanta Highway in Gainesville, you will find a small cantina called El Griton; which boasts some of the best authentic Mexican cuisine in Gainesville!
The restaurant is casual and locally owned. Some days you’ll catch the owner, Gus, singing and stopping by each table to take an order or check on your meal.
The pork carnitas are a must try on your next visit and you will be impressed by the fresh, homemade salsa with the perfect amount of spice. The fresh guacamole is one of the most popular items on the menu.
Along with carnitas and authentic tortas you will find soups, handmade tortillas and plenty of traditional Mexican entrees. The prices are reasonable and the restaurant offers beer and margaritas.
Also, El Griton has a food truck! Call them to schedule Big Blue at your next event. Have you been to El Griton? Let us know your favorite dish in the comments!
