Decent Tex-mex in Seoul

We wanted to try this place after reading the reviews and we were very happy with our meal. We ordered pork tacos and a vegetable quesadilla and both hit the spot. The pork tacos came first and they tasted really good. They almost had a sausage taste (in a good way!) and the corn tortilla... read more

We've been searching for decent Mexican food for 11 months while living in Korea. In Seoul we've ordered Gringo's Burritos, eaten in Tomatillo Grill, Vatos Urban Tacos, On the Border and in Gwangju Oh My Burrito and Tequilas and all have been eiither very average or disappointing. When we found Gusto Taco to be in the top 5 reviews in... More

I've gotten quite nostalgic for Mexican food during my two-year stay in Korea, so I find myself trying Mexican restaurants, often against my better judgement. I have no regrets about Gusto Taco. The only complaint I have about this place is that it's not closer to where I've been living, so I've only been able to indulge myself about three... More

We visited twice during our stay in Hongdae. Eric (owner) is very welcoming and provides a nice atmosphere. The first night we had Tilapias and pork tacos, which were good. We can back a second time because we enjoyed talking with Eric and wanted to try a few other dishes. We had the nachos and chicken quesadilas. Not a big... More

Active atmosphere, tacos are well done. Owners are from California and Texas so they get the taste just right.

Wings are awesome here! Also the fish taco is pretty amazing. Get a few different tacos and enjoy! Service here is about average but food is pretty good.

I first discovered Gusto a few years ago, by accident. I was in Hongdae and craving a good burger, so I turned to the interwebs for help. For whatever reason, Gusto popped up on a list and it happened to be very close to my location at the time. What a happy accident it was! I sat at the tiny... More

I don't know why but Seoul has some pretty decent South American food. The staff at Gusto Taco were nice and spoke very decent English. The pork tacos were great as well. Will come back!

Coming from Texas, I have a special place in my heart (and stomach) for Mexican food. Gusto Taco is amazing. It is genuinely some of the best I have ever eaten. Not only that but they have amazing drinks. If you find yourself in Seoul and want Mexican food, Gusto Taco is where you need to go.

We were craving non-asian food on our trip in Asia and found Gusto Taco on tripadvisor, what a marvelous surprise ! The owner is adorable, truly generous with an amazing life-story. We could not get enough ! A must-do.
