This restaurant is in a strip shopping center and you might pass it up if you did not know where it was, but that would be your loss. Our group was promptly seated, given menus, chips and salsa and our waiter had our order in less than five minutes. We weren't rushed we just knew what we wanted. As a... More

We have never been in a restaurant where service has been so swift. As soon as we sat down the drinks order was taken and then the chips and salsa arrived immediately. Drinks were refilled before we reached the bottom and the chips were refilled too. Then the food arrived, which was excellent. More drinks and then the check. Everyone... More

And need I say anymore when I tell you we ate here three times the week we were in Bryson City? This... More

In an area that flooded with tourism, there are not a lot of great spots to eat. Don't get me wrong there's lots of places to "eat", they're just far from great and many are barely good. This is very reliable Mexican food. The service was good, the margaritas were good, and the food was pretty good too. All-n-all, great... More

They have a large variety of dishes. The food was served quickly and very good. The service was great. The fried ice cream was good, not great.

We lived in Texas, so we appreciate good Mexican Food. Guayabito's has it. The salsa tasted like home.

This is the second time visiting this restaurant. The food and service were fabulous both times. If you like authentic Mexican food don't miss this place.

After all the years we've been visiting Maggie Valley, we've never taken the time to eat here. After all, we have several Mexican restaurants near home. We stopped on a whim, however, and we're glad we did! The service was quick and friendly, the food was as good as any I've had, and the salsa was so good that my... More

The annual trip to the mountain makes the lunch @ this family run restaurant a real treat. The food is authentic, spicy and fresh made to order. The drinks are huge and the food value is right. The special is a taste or all the different dishes on the menu and the poblamo pepper was fantastic The fresh fried chips... More

We were looking for Mexican food and found it! Located in a strip mall to the left of the town center, there is plenty of parking. There service is fast and the food is great! We enjoyed everything we ordered. Just what we wanted!
