My husband and I were really pleased with this place. We had a lady suggest this as a good authentic place to eat while we were in town. Little lady who sat us was sweet and took good care of us. Glad we were recommended to this place

The food is pretty good. I have eaten very good Mexican food in Southern California and Texas and Guayabito's does not compare, but it is decent food and fairly priced. It is worth mentioning that they have very good house-made salsa and they are happy to keep your table supplied with chips and salsa gratis. If you want to "get... More

We were surprised to find an authentic Mexican restaurant in North Carolina. Good service from friendly staff. Food was tasty. Chips and salsa were very good. When we go back to Bryson City we will definitely eat here again.

This was our first visit even though we are in Bryson City often. We should have been coming here more often cause the food is very good. The place was packed for a Sunday that was also new years day. That being said we were seated fast and waited on quickly. The pre meal chips and salsa were better than... More

Sadly, this restaurant tried to take advantage of us by changing the prices on our bill. We arrived at closing time, and turned to leave, when the manager motioned and begged us to come in. We asked if he was sure, he assured us, just asked us to hurry and order, which we did. We were very grateful, and thankful... More

Portions are big. The wait staff was great. Another good appetizer is the bean and cheese dip. Worth the visit and affordable prices.

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.

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.
