“Love this place”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

Tableside Guacamole is fantastic.

The owner Danny seems to have left the country but the new owner/manager is such a sweet person.

The food here is so good, it is very small and the restrooms show the age of the place sadly, but maybe only for me it is a challenge as there are some steps up to it and no handles to watch my step.

It is nice they give me salsa I can eat and the hotter stuff for my husbands mouth of steal.

I'm anxious sometime to have the pork. We will go back.

“Muy Delicioso”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

A small, traditional Mexican eatery with outstanding food. I grew up in LA, so Mexican food is a staple of my diet. Los Gueros is authentic, flavorful, well prepared fare. They prepare guacamole table side and their tortillas are hand made. Cilantro and garlic flavor their home made salsa. Hubby had chicken fajitas and I had taquitos. Amazing! If you are looking for an out of the way, inexpensive but excellent Mexican meal, give Los Gueros a try. Oh, and please order a margarita for me!

“Great Guacamole!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Great guacamole is prepared as you like it right in from of you. The atmosphere is very relaxed and causal. Home-made tortillas are served on the weekends. The enchilada verde is rich and flavorful. If you like Mexican food, this will soon become one of your favorites.

“delicious Food, Incredible Guacamole”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Fun colorful decorations and atmosphere. Guacamole prepared to order at your table. They were very very nice when we asked for a vegetarian meal, they made the most incredible looking vegetable burrito. The standard food was good too. They prepare food traditionally (ie: not fat free...but rich and delicious). Good beans. Decent margaritas.
