This was the first place we ate on our honeymoon so it might get an extra star for that. It might also get an extra star for the man who was walking two ferrets on leashes just outside. Regardless, the food was very good and the green salsa was A+. We also got margaritas but they weren't anything spectacularly creative... More

Very nice outdoor patio area. The live music was awesome. The lines for the bar were not very long and you did not have to wait long to get a drink. The seating looked very crowded but once I walked in there were places to sit. People will share benches and tables with other guests. Very nice place to hang... More

Great, casual atmosphere. Waitstaff willing to accommodate whatever you are in the mood for. Went here two nights of four night stay -- had brisket tacos, chickens tacos, and chicken enchiladas, all which were totally tasty. In the minority of those who didn't love the margaritas-- so tried a fresh squeezed grapefruit juice with patron silver tequila and thought I... More

We had read reviews of Gueros and had to try it out for ourselves. We were not disappointed. The food is great....so many choices and options. It looks deceptively small from the street, but they have loads of seating inside. The staff is great too.

I ate here just after I arrived in Austin for a conference. Just a short walk across the bridge from the hotel. The place was very busy so I sat at the bar. Service was a bit slow at times. I had a taco plate of some kind and it was very good. Their salsa is also very good. The... More

We couldn't wait to eat Mexican food upon our early arrival in Austin so we visited at 11am on a Wednesday morning; our service was very fast. The chips that were brought to the table were light and delicious, as were the (both slightly hot) red and verde salsas that accompanied. We chose 2 chicken enchiladas - one with verde... More

In America size matters. If size mattered to me this would be the greatest restaurant on earth. (Attached: photo of my burrito).

I am kind of a Tex-Mex snob, growing up in south Texas. While this food was good, it really is more of a 'taco bar' than a Tex-Mex eatery I was hoping for. That said, the food was solid and the prices were good and lower than many other Austin eateries. The service, however, was pretty bad. We had to... More

So we waited on a busy Saturday afternoon and had a few drinks until an outside table was ready to seat friends and Fido. Well worth the wait. Margaritas we a bit small but reasonably priced. Ask for a tall if you want them to last longer. Food was excellent, not the best but much better than average; 99% of... More
