Food very mediocre. Terrible service. Way over-rated. Bad value. Located in basic strip mall. There are much better Mexican restaurants in nearby Sylva (like the Fresh Mex, a.k.a. El Pacifico) and Cherokee.

I swear we ordered our drinks and food, and it appeared so quickly it was like they were psychic and knew what to cook before we walked in. Fresh and good and inexpensive. We felt like they must all be family because we had 3 or 4 different people come by and ask if we liked everything and if we... More

Guayabito's does not disappoint if you are looking for good, typical Mexican food that is found at most American Mexican restaurants. We went with a large group and the service was friendly and fast.
