Guero's Brisket tacos rivaled Franklin's brisket in an open faced flour tortilla. The food was all very good and the service was great but principally due to a busy Saturday afternoon the hostess stand was a bit of a zoo. Highly recommended for lunch and then head to the garden for some music. Classic Austin food and entertainment.

Stopped in during the lunch rush on a Saturday, super busy with about a 30 minute wait. We got lucky as we found a spot at the bar. The bar was super busy as well but both bartenders were very helpful and patient with all the customers. We both ordered breakfast and were happy with our selection, plus they make... More

We had to wait a while to get in - even at 2:00 in the afternoon. But the food was just delicious! Service is friendly and efficient. Would definitely come back here for lunch.

Great food and atmosphere, this is the place to get a true Austin experience. If it is nice weather, sit outside for the best people watching you can find anywhere. After your meal, walk the wonderful South Congress Street for art, clothing and funky finds.

I've rarely sent food back but I had to do so here. The tamales are terrible and I've bought better at grocery stores. The friends I was with picked at their food but one really enjoyed his jalapeno margarita. The atmosphere and service was nice but if you want good texmex, skip this place. Major disappointment.

This is a funky little place that has suuuuch good food. The chips come with three types of salsa, all good and with a kick, I had to force myself to stop! I had an excellent Margarita which was so smooth, I almost thought there was no Tequila in it. (there was..it snuck up on me!) I ordered the fish... More

I had seen this place in the movie CHEF. By coincidence, my son-in-law took my daughter, me, and their infant son to eat here. The food is great!!! Then, we went outside, sat and listened to amazing live music... we are going back to austin next month. This will certainly be one of our priority stops!!!!

I've been eating at Guero's ever since I was a college student in the 80's and it's still as great as ever. Every time I return to Austin, this is my first stop from the airport. I dream of it while living in San Diego. The salsa bar has bowls of the best pico de gallo, jalapeños, verde sauce, etc.... More

Right in the heart of SoCo, great eatery for original Tex Mex. Menu is extensive, food great, and best Margarita ever! Detached from main restaurant which is located in old feed store, are tables outside with live music. Fun place!

We were looking for good Mexican in South Congress area and this place came recommended from a local count that we visited. Good fish tacos and tortilla soup. Condiments are excellent including green tomatillo salsa. Nice local flavor. Good service. What more can you ask for?!

Thank MontanaLaura
