Pretty good Mexican food

Guacamole's has a good menu and it is well prepared. It isnota TexMex as some Mexican places and does what they serve well. It is better than the chain Mexican places, and is a good date eatery. It is average or slightly better.

Ate there this past week. Food sucked but that was the least of my problems. Got such horrible food poisoning I had to go to the ER. My friend who ate there separately the same night had the same thing happen and was asked specifically if she ate at gaucamoles b/c lots of people were going to the ER with... More

I don't know if it was a bad day or what, but it was my daughter's last day in Kent before moving back to AZ. She had always enjoyed this place and I'd been here maybe twice before and don't recall it this bad. Got a pitcher of margarita and they were the worst in my life and that says... More

Food was terrible. Service was poor. And worst of all they stole money by changing the tip amount on my card! Also did not card my friend and I for alcohol. STAY AWAY!

While dining at Guacamole's, the is nothing pretentious. Come as you are. Relax in their ambiance . Have a good time, drink if you like, and have really good Mexican food. We experience this wonderful restaurant this month and cannot say enough good about it. The server checked on us several times and my portion was so much I could... More

Guacamole's is a nice Mexican restaurant in Kent with reasonable prices, good food, excellent margaritas, and good service. It's a nice place for lunch, dinner, or a drink out with friends.

It's a Mexican restaurant in a college town. Don't get excited, but don't bash it either. it serves a great purpose in the college circle of life. So sit down, have a margarita and free chips, and figure out what dish will do the least damage (and I'm not talking about to your wallet...)

The Margaritas are great (go on half-off Tuesdays). But, that's the only good thing I can say about this place. I got the enchilada once, tasted like a damn TV dinner and was not filling. Worst $7 I've spent. It made me upset that I choose this over my first dining option...Chipotle. C'mon that's sad.

Have been more times than I care to admit. But last was officially the last. While staff is great, it just can't make up for the poor food. There are far too many other Mexican restaurants that surpass Guacamole's. Not good. Not even ok. Try Salsita's on route 43.
