This is our second trip to Bryson City and second trip to Guayabito's The service was good and choices adequate and food well prepared. We had 12 in our party and we're seated promptly. Definitely can recommend this restaurant.

We have been coming here for years when we visit the area and it is still wonderful. The staff are so friendly and the food is phenomenal. The strip mall that it is in doesn't look that appealing, but don't let that offend you,the food is so good, and the restaurant is very clean inside!!! So give it a try.

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!

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.

Thank CRBug

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.
