I love Gueros for their chicken tacos. Prices are about average. Crowded a lot but nice place to wait. Margaritas are good, not too sweet.

Can the service at Gueros just get a little bit better please?
I love the food and the margaritas are pretty good too, but this is almost always spoiled by moody waiters and 25minute refill or check delays. Please get some good waiters

The food at Gueros is good I'll grant you that, but the service will make you stay far far away. Slow, indifferent, careless are some of the adjectives I can use to describe the wait staff.

All I can say is YUM! Guero's is our favorite. Food is awesome. Service is awesome. And it's super kid-friendly. Prices are reasonable, they use fresh, homemade ingredients, and the servings are very generous. We're never disappointed.

Pros: Trendy location: you may even spot a celebrity that doesn't know what tex-mex is supposed to taste like

Cons: Guero's fooled you into believing their Banquet TV dinners are authentic mexican fare. That's the biggest con of all time.

I really liked the atmosphere here. I think the best tasting plate at our table was the pancakes. The flour tortillas had to have been bagged. The migas were loaded with vegetables, big, crunchy, raw vegetables. Oh yeah, the service

Guero's is a SoCo staple! The food is excellent, the drinks are even better! The atmosphere is wonderful and the people are friendly.

Parking used to be bad, but there is now a parking structure just around the corner! The wait can be long, but I recommend grabbing a margarita and waiting it out, because it is worth it (the margarita and the wait!).

Everyone needs to go here at least once!

While other mexican restaurants have great drinks and specials, Guerros is an original.In the comfy area of SoCo, it features outstanding food and beverages and you will usually see some sort of famous person there (even if that famous person is yourself).A favorite of presidents and movie stars, it is a must for anyone who likes a good meal and a great time.
