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

    positive review  The Gaucho & The Gringa create a flavor mouth explosion that you’ll nvr forget but always want to remember. Especially their garlic concoction- I can’t tell you what the secret is until you’ve tried every item on their menu. #GandGgetinmybelly

    positive review  Had their pizza empanada and fries for the first time over the week. They were some of the best homemade fires I’ve ever had and the empanada was AMAZING. I had to like them on Facebook so I could get my fix in the future.
