Decent food. Your typical Mexican fare. There's some disconnect, in my opinion, with all the 5-star reviews on here. Honestly should have given this 0/5 stars. The service was among the worse I've experienced. Start to finish, it took almost 70 minutes for food for 3 for lunch. No apologies were given, either, which to me is a direct reflection... More

Husband and I had just had a slice of pizza across the street. We also wanted to give this a try so we wanted small portions. I ordered the house salad and one tamale, husband ordered one enchiladas with beans. Perfect size and excellent choice- very tasty. Cool atmosphere, loved watching the cooks make the tortillas.

My wife and I took my mother out for lunch at Guero's. my wife and I ordered chicken carbon enchiladas with homemade mole sauce while my mother ordered the quesadilla plate. Each of the entrees was fantastic. My wife and I also ordered jalapeño margaritas. Very good but not for the faint at heart. Really spicy but good. I highly... More

Every year we come to Austin and every time we eat here. The food is out of this world. The service is so friendly. You MUST VISIT!

I have been here twice and will say that it has consistent quality food. However, the chips and salsa may be the best ever! Only minor complain is that the host or hostess (not sure) was not friendly at all...actually has a scowl most of the time. Got the whole we are Austin and you are lucky to be here... More

We were in Austin for the day, and decided to have dinner at Guero's...had the Tuesday night Tex Mex special. We eat a lot of Mexican food and this was the worst ever. Bland, awful tasting...the only thing worth eating were the chips and salsa while we waited for the "special." Never again.

I was disappointed to hear that you didn't like the Tex Mex special when you came into the restaurant. We take great pride in our fresh ingredients and tasty food. I hope that you give us another chance to impress you, I am confidant that my staff will be able to suggest something that you would enjoy. More

We had a fairly good lunch here. The service though was completely uninterested and the food, while OK, didn't wow us in the slightest. I think it's trading on its name and there are far better options on this street.

Stopped in for a drink, ended up eating their tacos because they looked so good, and not too much of a risk at $2 a piece. They were delicious. Atmosphere was great too. Wish we were there when the outdoor area was open, looks like it would be the place to be!
