Happy hour drinks and chips and salsa with 2 family members. Great time. Friendly servers. We all enjoyed our time there. Will be back.

The Casa Margarita was disappointing. Very sour and limey, not enough triple sec. Chips, salsa, and queso were very good. Tacos were good, not great. Biggest disappointment was the seating. Three feet from the stationary bus cart which every noisily used and left messy. Very...More

Their drinks are tasty, the vibe and atmosphere is very "Austin," but not a big fan of their food. Very bland and not that tasty.

Great Food. Great Salsa. Great Margaritas. A must eat while visiting South Congress! Very crowded and loud but so worth it! Great service every time!

Great food, cool vibe.. Margaritas served in glasses the size of a juice glass...and, that was plenty, they were tasty and strong! Enchiladas & tamales were great, but the guacamole was legitimately awesome.

Great night out in a Wednesday. Very large live band (broadcasting live on radio). Quick service at the bar and snacks via small window. What more could you ask?

We stopped here for lunch while visiting the shops on South Congress. The food and drinks were terrific! And our server was attentive and friendly. Definitely will come back to Gueros if we are ever back in Austin! YUM!
