Good Mexican Food!

Being from the South, I have my cravings for what I call Tex Mex. I've tried all of the Mexican restaurants in town and they all are pretty good but Guads is my favorite. Their staff is friendly, their food is good. Their salsa wins me.

Lighting in restaurant was very bright. too bright for an evening meal. Kids running around. Meal was very average. Margarita was horrible. Didn't even taste like there was any tequila in it.

Went in a Friday night not too busy. Walking in the decor was great after that things went south quickly. Barely sat down and asked for what we wanted to drink, two seconds later a woman asked if we wanted guacamole. For what? How much? No answer. We didn't get it because nobody told us anything. Our waiter didn't speak... More

Good good, good service and good salsa. I also love the rolling guacamole cart where they make your quac to your specifications! We went to all Mexican restaurants in York and decided this was our favorite!

Great service, friendly staff, nice atmosphere. Started with chips, cheese dip and salsa, really good. Husband had fish street tacos, a favorite - really spicy. I had chicken/cheese flautas which came with beans, rice and "salad", first for me and it was delicious. Plenty of food, really good meal.

Great place to go when you know you want good Mexican food without an hour wait on a Friday night. Food is always good, wait staff friendly but a little slow. Almost always take some home with us.m

I had the #5-2 enchiladas and a taco with beans. Very filling. My wife had the quesadilla. we eat here often. Looking at the crowd there at 7:15 PM it appears we are not alone in making this a favorite.

My wife and I wanted to try something different, so we decided on this place. Very nicely decorated inside, very colorful & festive appearing. You can really taste the freshness in the food, this isn't something "pre-packaged" and heated up. The menu was HUGE, and we didn't know what to get so we both decided on combination platters. Mine came... More

Read the reviews on TripAdvisor, so we stopped in for dinner. The table side guacamole was ok. Nothing to rave about. Read my reviews on other Mexican restaurants. It was very mushy and she put some type of oil in it to make it soft and mushy. The tacos and chicken enchilada was average. The margarita was good. I would... More
