It is commonly called just Guads by the locals. Meals are reasonable and freshly prepared. Of course, you have to have a margarita. They do tend to push their table side guacamole.

This is one of our go-to restaurants. Great margaritas. Table side guacamole is excellent. So are the Queso Diablo and Chile Colorado. The staff treats us like family. Often greeted with hugs. Rigo is our favorite server!
