For Pennsylvania, it's not bad...but not really authentic either.

Having come from the south, this restaurant makes the transition from very good Mexican fare to suit Dutch taste buds, I suppose. The food isn't terrible at all, but don't come expecting a well rounded home style meal that rivals anything down south. In my opinion, it's worth the time to check it... read more

Buy three authentic street tacos for $6-9(depending on the meat) in Tempe, AZ and you get rice and beans and a salad bar of fix-ins including jalapeños, pickled onions and sauces to go with it (a meal). I ordered three carnitas tacos for $9 and I got three little tortillas with a little bit of pork and a few small... More

We have always liked the food at lunch. The servers are prompt and pleasant. The fresh dip is good. Serving size is generous for a reasonable price. Access for moderately handicapped is much better through the hotel lobby than the front door, even though it is further. This is our favorite Mexican restaurant anywhere near here.

Food is always good, large portions, good prices. They could consider a better facility the hotel they are located in is nasty, probably one of the scariest bathrooms I've ever been in, but that's not the restaurants fault.

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.
