Food and prices are OK but not great, my biggest complaint about this place is the disgustingly filthy carpets.

Four of us for dinner, and the trouble began with our drink order. The two El Grande margharitas came right out and were excellent, along with a beer, but the Pina Colanda that was ordered took about twenty minutes. Seemed like it was forgotten entirely, but finally came after giving our food orders. The chips were great, but the salsa... More

Friendly staff, great chips and salsa, large selection and vegetarian options! I have eaten here frequently and have never had anything I didn't like. The staff are sweet and accommodating.

Entrees were good. Prices a little high. Salsa not as good as other Mexican restaurants. I don't like the thick mealy chips they serve but that is a matter of taste. Big expansive menu!!! Location is older and it shows. Food tastier than most of the other restaurants in BC!

Found out about restaurant from friends who stay in area. Located in an unassuming strip mall. Turns out to be authentic Mexican restaurant in Bryson City, North Carolina, who would of thought! Great food, terrific margaritas, reasonable prices, good portions, great service. What more could you ask for.

Bryson City tends to close down on Sundays, which is okay. This place was open, thank goodness! It is a mexican-american restaurant just like many others. They were busy but we were seated quickly and our food come out quickly after we ordered. It is good food. We have eaten here on past visits and will again.

I eat here a couple of times a month and always bring out of town friends to try it as well. The food is always delicious and the service is great. It's a great find in Bryson City

Sorry, but nothing compares to The Azteca in our home area. We went into Guayabito's not really hungry, but we were already out. The staff is very attentive and constantly coming by the table. We finally ordered a couple of the simpler items from the menu. It was tasty and filling. We were not at all disappointed with our meal... More

Enjoyed a couples only birthday dinner at Guayabito's. Feed was wonderful, service was quick and friendly, interior decor was really nice, could use a better exterior location.

Food is always good and the owners are always there to make you happy. ! Birthdays are fun and if you are a drinker it's your place.

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.
