Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina REVIEW & A Cinco de Mayo Feast At This Mexican Restaurant In Clinton Township, MI

Sharing is caring!

My husband and I were looking for a place to go for our date-night and since it was the day before Cinco de Mayo we were craving a big plate of Mexican food. We have driven past the Crazy Gringo restaurant many times before but never stopped in. The Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina is located in the 15 Mile Road and Gratiot area of Clinton Township so it was not far from where we live in St. Clair Shores.


Mexicantown in Detroit is usually our go-to place for that authentic taste and experience but my hubby did not feel like driving down to the city last night. So that is how we ended up here. Also, I almost always Google a restaurant before my first time going and I was impressed with the big plates of colorful food. This was the perfect Mexican restaurant to celebrate the Cinco de Mayo holiday!

My First impression of Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina

My first impression of the Crazy Gringo was how colorful and how fun the atmosphere is. The Crazy Gringo is not a restaurant for peace and quiet. It seems as though everyone was enjoying the atmosphere and just kicking back and having a great time. The first thing that catches your eye here is the bar that is all lit up with little colorful lights. When you see something like this, you know that you are in for a great time! The bar here looked very inviting and my craving for a blue margarita kicked into high gear!

You can also see that this Mexican restaurant has some daily specials for you to partake in as well.

Save room for dessert!

If you have any room in your tummy after your big Mexican feast here, there are also some traditional Mexican desserts available. I did not get a chance to give these a whirl, maybe next time? I have no doubt that the flan and the churros are on-point! That deep fried ice cream sure sounds interesting too!

Dessert menu for Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina – What will you order after your Mexican feast?

What we ordered at the Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina

First things first! Can’t go to a Mexican cantina without a margarita or a Corona with a lime sticking out of the top of it! I have not had a drop of any alcohol since September of 2018 for some medical reasons. I had a hard time saying no to a margarita here at the Crazy Gringo. A blue margarita with some salt on the rim and lime is tops for me! That has always been one of my favorite alcoholic beverages. I was pretty impressed with the smaller $7 margarita that I ordered.

My Electric Kiwi Margarita was made with tequila, blue curacao, blue island pucker, lime juice, and some sour mix. I did request an extra lime with my drink, though, and they did not give me one. Oh well, no biggie!

I ordered the Crazy Wet Burrito for myself because I love big fat, wet, smothered burritos! My husband is more of a fajita lover so he went with the chicken fajita dinner.

Their drink menu boasts that they have over 50 varieties of tequila available. Their House Margarita comes in a regular size for $7 and a boomba size for $10. If you want a top-shelf margarita (who doesn’t??) Those are $12 for the smaller size and $16 for the larger boomba size.

Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina also offers other specialty cocktails for your drinking pleasure! The Tequila Sunrise and the Mexican Sunset sound fabulous!

If you are thirsty for a shot, they also have them on their drink menu. The shots are $6.50 each. Here is a great one:

Fuzzy Worm: tequila, peach schnapps, and orange juice

Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina can also liquor you up for new frozen special cocktails and also their famous Corona Rita!

I included a photo of my Electric Kiwi Margarita alongside their chicken tortilla soup. The soup was the perfect prelude to our Mexican meal that was cooking up in the kitchen.

Our Mexican dinner also came with a generously sized basket of chips and 3 different salsas to dip the chips in.

Here is the Crazy Wet Burrito on the menu. For $11.99 you get a gigantic platter of food. The burrito weighs a ton! Both meals included Mexican rice and beans.
