This is a funky little place that has suuuuch good food. The chips come with three types of salsa, all good and with a kick, I had to force myself to stop! I had an excellent Margarita which was so smooth, I almost thought there was no Tequila in it. (there was..it snuck up on me!) I ordered the fish... More

I had seen this place in the movie CHEF. By coincidence, my son-in-law took my daughter, me, and their infant son to eat here. The food is great!!! Then, we went outside, sat and listened to amazing live music... we are going back to austin next month. This will certainly be one of our priority stops!!!!

I've been eating at Guero's ever since I was a college student in the 80's and it's still as great as ever. Every time I return to Austin, this is my first stop from the airport. I dream of it while living in San Diego. The salsa bar has bowls of the best pico de gallo, jalapeños, verde sauce, etc.... More

Right in the heart of SoCo, great eatery for original Tex Mex. Menu is extensive, food great, and best Margarita ever! Detached from main restaurant which is located in old feed store, are tables outside with live music. Fun place!

We were looking for good Mexican in South Congress area and this place came recommended from a local count that we visited. Good fish tacos and tortilla soup. Condiments are excellent including green tomatillo salsa. Nice local flavor. Good service. What more can you ask for?!

Stopped in for lunch here. Very busy place at lunch time. Most people were waiting but I sat at bar to avoid it. Had a couple of chicken tacos and a beer. All very standard issue fare. Good but unmemorable. Service was fine

Located in the non-yuppy part of Austin, Guaro’s is one of the older Mexican restaurants, attracts a diverse customer base, and is busy. The food was OK, not special, although they do have a good selection of beers. Staff seemed to be paying more attention to each other than to the customers. We went there on local recommendation but probably... More

Gueros is an institution in SOCO and a great place to see and be seen. The for is so good and they have a full bar and outside covered patio streetside. Right in the middle of SOCO, its the perfect place to eat late or mid day while doing all things South Congress.

So so nothing to write home about. Service was ok and it was very. Hey. Chips and salsa were free - salsa comes in three different kinds which we liked. Guac order is small and looks underwhelming. Overall portions size were good. Salad with chicken (taco salad) was alright and the tasting platter was good. Overall just like a chain... More
