This is the perfect place to enjoy all SOCO has to offer! Everything is made on site and so many options!! Take some time to have a good solid meal in Austin and go to Guero's.

There are two sections to Guero's. There is the restaurant, and there is the outdoor Taco Bar with live entertainment. The inside had a short wait on Saturday night, but we were in in about 10 minutes. The wait staff was quick and attentive. My wife had Tacos Al Pastor, and she said they were okay but nothing special. I... More

immediate seating on a Sunday evening, lively and great atmosphere with super friendly waiters. lots of menu selections, making it difficult to make a decision, but great food with really large portions. choices of corn, wheat flour, white flour tortillas that are fresh-made. very nice! would go back to try out some of the other dishes on the menu.

This place can get busy, but you know what? So can a lot of places in this part of Austin. Deal with it and settle in, enjoy your friends and the good food. It's a comfy place to hang, good people watching and I have never had a bad meal here.

Visited Guero's Taco Bar in Austin in October. Overall a satisfying experience. It's a casual laid back atomosphere - typical of Austin. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Huge menu selection so you will find something to fit your taste. Our group stayed with the basics such as enchiladas, burritos, tacos - everyone was pleased including two vegans. Price is... More

We had reserations here for a group of 20 during Livestrong challenge weekend in Oct 2014. The ambiance was great. the food good, but the service ever so slow. We had three tables and the third table took more than one hour to get their food after the order was placed. Great for a date, less than 5 people....not recommended... More

We had dinner & drinks here while visiting our son who lives in Austin at his recommendation. We mentioned we had a taste for some really good Mexican food and this place did not let us down. Guero's is located in an old feed & grain store from the 1800's with original wood floors, high walls, whitewashed brick, and a... More

Love the atmosphere. It's set in an old building on South Congress which is one of the most unique parts of Austin. Did was really good. Chips were just okay but the salsa was really good. I had the Santa Fe enchiladas. They were really good. Different style for an enchiladas but good.

Good Mexican food and a nice atmosphere especially if you sit outside when the weather is nice. The Tito margarita was great...somewhat smaller then I'm used to seeing but it was good! Great food all around although this was our second time here and I recall a specific veg menu last time (which I now see in the pics here).... More

We could not get over our meal at Gueros and regretted not having a chance to get back. We enjoyed an amazing authentic Tex-Mex breakfast - complete with homemade tortillas and the best margaritas I ever had. The service was friendly, helpful and prompt. The egg dishes were delicious - nothing like we had ever eaten before.
