We visited with our son, daughter-in-law and the two kids and everyone enjoyed the food, even the usually picky kids. Some have complained that you have to pay for chips and salsa, but I thought the three unique salsas and the unlimited chips were worth $1.95. We also got the namesake appetizer with three different guacamoles and it was also... More

A fiesta in your mouth! As a self proclaimed foodie, I'm telling you this place is a must ! (I accidentally posted this rating to a joint up the street I've not been to) Disregard. Guaca Mole is your destination. Robin the manager and Steve our server professionally and most hospitably delivered a creative and delectable feast. To start: the... More

This restaurant has become one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Louisville. If you love Mexican food, you will love this place which takes it to a higher level. Chips and salsa typically is served with three distinct types of salsa. And there are multiple types of guacamole to sample. I love the Chicken Tinga tacos and the Carne Asada... More

From decor and atmosphere to greeting to servers this place was A+. Food isn't typical Mexican. Very unique, chef-inspired dishes. Don't expect a 10 page menu with standard fare Mexican. These dishes are pieces of art, thoughtfully prepared and delicious. And reasonably priced. I had a pork dish served in small circular corn cups. My wife had a veggie enchilada.... More

I was excited to eat at a nicer latin flavored restaurant and tried Guaca Mole after a few years hiatus. I visited with a friend around 6pm on a Wednesday evening. There were plenty of seats to choose from. Decor is nice but direct lighting over each table was a bit bright. Hector (name on receipt) was our waiter. He... More

Most entrees are $15-20. Chips and salsa also carry a charge. But the food is wonderful. It is the best we have found in Louisville, and we have tried several businesses. I would characterize it as more of a Nouveau Mexican, with a modern take on traditional foods. Still wonderful. Not as much heat as I would have liked but... More

Besides all the American food, this is one of the better restaurants where you can have delicious food for a reasonable price. Friendly persons too.

The menu has your typical Mexican fare, with some unique items as well. The way it is prepared kicks it up several notches for me. I had the Chicken Enchiladas that were absolutely bursting with flavor. When the server asked me if I wanted dessert, I told him that if I was going to eat any more, I'd have more... More

From greeting, to service, excellent creative plates offering a neat twist to "Mexican" food, presented artistically and promptly. If very busy night especially weekends expect crowd. Spiced pork is great, while even simple pulled chicken double corn soft wrapped made freshly. Perfect touches, I always dine when in the area and even have driven to just eat and go back... More

Sent across the parking lot by the front desk lady, this turned out to be a real gem. Plenty of seats on a quiet Wednesday night - at the bar was comfortable. Several Mexican Beers on Draft. Food was modern/traditional Mexican/South American. Like the Carnitas were the best I've ever had - with a "bark" of a sweet spicy glaze.... More
