We really enjoyed our meal at Guayabito's. We rafted the Nantahala first, so we were starving when we got there. The chips were hot and fresh, and our meal was excellent.

37 boy scouts and 17 adult leaders finished off an awesome week in the area with a taco dinner here. The staff was very friendly and kept the food and drinks coming. Filling the bellies of boys is no easy task, but they did it. Everyone left full. Thanks for a great finish to a great week.

Had a great lunch here with several friends. The chips were warm, salsa fresh, guacamole great, cheese dip too! We had fajitas and the Bryson City Special? Everything was good and fresh. Wait staff attentive. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Our family went on the road to nowhere and hiked a bit. We needed sustenance, so we went for Mexican food at this restaurant in a strip mall. My expectations were low...I mean really another restaurant in a strip mall...they are all the same. NO! After my Ice cold Dos Equis, I had the speedy gonzales lunch special of a... More

Supposedly this restaurant was going to have great authentic Mexican food. The food was not bad but it was not anything better than any run of the mill Mexican restaurant. The wait staff was not helpful or friendly at all. Be sure and check your bill as they tried to charge for two small items we never ordered. Add about... More

We had read reviews that gave this establishment low ratings. My family however, 3 boys and a girl found this place to be pretty good. The staff was friendly and the restaurant was clean. My wife and I thought our food was great, and the only thing that stops me from giving this a better score, is that the ground... More

This place has an extensive menu so there is something for everyone who wants to enjoy an authentic Mexican meal. A comfortable laid back atmosphere perfect for couples and families. Dine in or take out. The meals are pretty big so have a good appetite when you go. We enjoyed the chimichangas and burritos - yummy.

I love Guayabito's Mexican Restaurant and make it a point to stop and eat here while i'm in Bryson City,NC. This was my 3rd time and it was as good as the 1st and 2nd. They just have really good food and it's always fresh and the service is good. It's worth the drive. Can't wait to go back in... More

I don't think they have a website, but went to Bryson City and to this restaurant and it was soooo good, I had to review it. I was surprised to see there was no listing.
