Our hotel reccomended Guero's for tacos. We happened to be waking along South Congress Blvd and came across the place, & decided to give it a try. Nothing special, sadly. Mediocre margaritas (both the original & the frozen strawberry 'grita's) we tried the fish, brisket and pork tacos. The fish & pork were good, the brisket was dry & over... More

Outdoor seating, decent Mexican food, live music, great setting, iconic. Try it! Not too expensive--kind of like you're at a picnic.

We had been to the music under the Oak Tree next door and it was cool so we headed inside. They were suppose to be known for there margaritas but they were diluted and overpriced. They did not indicate the guacamole was an add on to free chips and salsa and quantity served was small and overpriced. We both had... More

Rosie, I was sorry to hear that our margaritas were not what you were expecting although they are small that pack a big punch and I wish that had shown through for you. Our guacamole is an add on to the free chips and salsa that we offer so this is something that we do charge for. Our staff is... More

My son and I wanted Mexican food so we had seen Guero's a few days before. We decided let's try it and boy we're we pleasantly surprised! Great food...their rice was to die for as was the rest of the food. Their smiley salsa was very good! Service was excellent and the atmosphere is very nice.

The beans and rice were excellent that were served with the tacos. Our waitress was extremely helpful and fixed our lime juice with water so that it wouldn't be as sweet. We had fish tacos pork tacos and beef tacos and they were all delicious. We also had a tamale that was very tasty. The atmosphere fit the locale too!

We were looking for authentic Mexican food and found it at Guero's. Had two kinds of tacos and loved both. Also, their margaritas are excellent. Loved the pics all over the walls as well!

Sat at the bar and enjoyed a margarita and some appetizers. The food was good and an easy laid back atmosphere made it all more enjoyable.

Went for lunch on a weekday while in town for a conference. Service was prompt and friendly, and the prices were reasonable. We ordered tacos, which were good, but not quite great. The portions were generous, and the food seemed fresh and well-prepared, if slightly underseasoned. The real mindblowing thing at this restaurant is the margaritas. They were absolutely heavenly....
