About Us

The Gaucho (South American cowboy) & The Gringa (North American girl) is run by a couple who met while backpacking through South America and relocated to Sandusky to share their love of REAL, FRESH FOOD.

They hold their food to extremely high standards, believing that we should all eat the highest quality food possible. All of their dishes are HOMEMADE, and they grow as much of their own organic produce as possible. All of the grass-fed/grass-finished beef used on the truck comes from Circle P Limousin Farms in New London, OH. Every egg is sourced from Sandusky farmers who create a free-range environment free from unnatural feed and antibiotics.

The Gaucho & The Gringa want to have at least a little something for everyone. They also offer gluten-free options, as well as vegetarian and vegan menu items.

The Gaucho & The Gringa donate a portion of their proceeds to both local and international organizations that work to foster literacy and provide better access to healthy food. They are proud to support the following organizations:


The CHISPA project

Full Crew

    positive review  My kids and I keep an eye out for them at any festival we go, knowing we will each give in to temptation and take a bite while they are still steaming hot. Delicious.

    positive review  I had the joy of trying the choripapas last summer and absolutely LOVED the flavor. I was elated to see they were open again this year and had to order the choripapas again lol also ordered empanadas which were prepared perfectly! A wonderful crispy outside with moist, tender chicken inside. Definitely recommending to my friends.
