    Get $2 off one of these signature margaritas, or enjoy a frozen house margarita for just $4, during their weekday happy hour from 3 to 6 p.m.

    Our hotel reccomended Guero's for tacos. We happened to be waking along South Congress Blvd and came across the place, & decided to give it a try. Nothing special, sadly. Mediocre margaritas (both the original & the frozen strawberry 'grita's) we tried the fish, brisket and pork tacos. The fish & pork were good, the brisket was dry & over cooked. Beans & rice were nothing special. It is a great venue, with the large outdoor area & live music. Food just isn't great, but is not bad.

    we went on a weekend during SXSW. the restaurant does not take reservations. so we called ahead to ask what time would be best to arrive in order to beat the lunch time crowd and they gave us helpful and friendly information. we arrived at noon (were told to get there before 12:30) and there was no wait. the place was about 75% full. the food was tasty, the service was fast and friendly, the vibe was fantastic, and the wall art was funky and fun. this is a great place for friends to gather and definitely one to bring guests from out of town for a true Austin experience. PS parking is also validated in the garage for 2 hours which is super convenient.

    We had been to the music under the Oak Tree next door and it was cool so we headed inside. They were suppose to be known for there margaritas but they were diluted and overpriced. They did not indicate the guacamole was an add on to free chips and salsa and quantity served was small and overpriced. We both had soups that were mediocre at best. Not impressed.

    Outdoor seating, decent Mexican food, live music, great setting, iconic. Try it! Not too expensive--kind of like you're at a picnic.

    My son and I wanted Mexican food so we had seen Guero's a few days before. We decided let's try it and boy we're we pleasantly surprised! Great food...their rice was to die for as was the rest of the food. Their smiley salsa was very good! Service was excellent and the atmosphere is very nice.

    We were looking for authentic Mexican food and found it at Guero's. Had two kinds of tacos and loved both. Also, their margaritas are excellent. Loved the pics all over the walls as well!

    The beans and rice were excellent that were served with the tacos. Our waitress was extremely helpful and fixed our lime juice with water so that it wouldn't be as sweet. We had fish tacos pork tacos and beef tacos and they were all delicious. We also had a tamale that was very tasty. The atmosphere fit the locale too!

    Sat at the bar and enjoyed a margarita and some appetizers. The food was good and an easy laid back atmosphere made it all more enjoyable.

    Went for lunch on a weekday while in town for a conference. Service was prompt and friendly, and the prices were reasonable. We ordered tacos, which were good, but not quite great. The portions were generous, and the food seemed fresh and well-prepared, if slightly underseasoned. The real mindblowing thing at this restaurant is the margaritas. They were absolutely heavenly. They were so good, in fact, that we each had two, even though it was lunch time. Amazing. We enjoyed our meal, the laid back atmosphere, and the good service. Though the food was not life-altering, the margaritas were. Worth a visit!

    Delicious food! Server was friendly and helpful! It was the best Mexican salad I've every had, and I'm from Tucson. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    Fun Tex/Mex in building that used to be a feed mill. Nice ambience. Very busy. Has an outside area with live music where one may order drinks and appetizers.

    We loved everything from the tamale appetizers to the margaritas to the ice cream dessert. It's in a beautifully maintained historic building and has live outdoor music next to the main restaurant building. Very highly recommend it!

    This restaurant was recommended to us by staff at our hotel. The chicken fajitas were very good, as was the Pollo de Gueros. Portion sizes were large. You definitely won't leave hungry.

    Giant portion sizes. You will not leave hungry. 3 different salad with the house chips. A giant variety of margaritas made from different tequilas. Service was on point from the get go.

    Selections galore, something for everyone! My sidekick had a wonderful salad, and I had a combo plate. We normally don't share each other's meals but we made an exception this time. I'll definitely be back.

    S Congress Ave is the place to go for great local bars and places to eat. There are a few live music venues down there and a very lively crowd. It is fun and has a really good vibe. We had dinner at Guero's Taco Bar. We ate outside - on a beautiful night. The waitstaff were very friendly and accommodating. I kind of made up my own dish which they happily put together for me which was really nice. The food was great and full of flavours. We really enjoyed our meals here the prices were good, the food was flavoursome and the service was great.

    Decent food. Your typical Mexican fare. There's some disconnect, in my opinion, with all the 5-star reviews on here. Honestly should have given this 0/5 stars. The service was among the worse I've experienced. Start to finish, it took almost 70 minutes for food for 3 for lunch. No apologies were given, either, which to me is a direct reflection of management. It took so long to get a water refill that one of our guests had to go to the bar to a water. If you are looking for lunch, this is absolutely not your place unless you plan to spend hours.

    Husband and I had just had a slice of pizza across the street. We also wanted to give this a try so we wanted small portions. I ordered the house salad and one tamale, husband ordered one enchiladas with beans. Perfect size and excellent choice- very tasty. Cool atmosphere, loved watching the cooks make the tortillas.
