Gringo Jack's promises a unique dining experience with a freshly prepared, unusual menu, warm and friendly service in an extraordinary atmosphere. We have a commitment to value, quality and generosity of spirit!
The cuisine? Gringo Jack's uses fresh ingredients to create wonderfully bold flavors - ranging from authentic, regional Mexican flavors to those of Tex-Mex and the Southwest - all working together to make Gringo Jack's Manchester's favorite dining spot.
Nestled in the beautiful green mountains, Gringo Jack's is celebrating over 15 years in Manchester, Vermont. The building we occupy was designed in the early 1800s to be a train stop. Through the years, it housed some of Vermont's oldest families and then remained empty until Jack Gilbert, a local artist who had been living in New York City, moved back to Manchester and decided this lovely, old building would make a wonderful restaurant.
In remodeling the building, Jack drew on the appreciation for Mexican tradition and culture he had developed while traveling in that country. Drawing on a lifelong interest in cooking and his experience of working in one of the finest Mexican restaurants in New York City, Jack set out to develop a menu that was both unusual and authentic.
As one of the top restaurants in Southern Vermont - over the years - Gringo Jack's has become a 'must stop' for many traveling through the area.
About six years ago, we gave in to repeated requests by our patrons to bottle our sauces, and have been bottling like crazy ever since! Our gourmet line of sauces, soups, salsas and chips are selling in some of the finest stores on the east coast, including Whole Foods chain markets.
Watch for our new soups and hydroponic tomato line! We've partnered with Vermont Hydroponic to create a line of products using only hydroponic, sustainably grown tomatoes. This means you don't have to worry about pesticides or air borne illnesses - all you get is true, happy tomato flavor!
