There are several good Mexican restaurants in the area, but what separates this form the rest is the service! I have never been in a restaurant that functioned like a well oiled machine until this one! If you have children Wednesday night kids eat free and they have a face painter/balloon artist. The kids love it!!

Friendly waitress. I had the steak fajitas which were served sizzling hot and were great. My wife had a beef burrito the size of Rhode Island. Great location for people watching.

Our family of four (including teenagers) ate at Guads for dinner and had an excellent experience. We enjoyed everything from the food to the service. This place is great in every way.

We chose this restaurant mainly because it was convenient and within walking distance of our hotel but it was a great choice, Chips, salsa, and drinks were served right away and hit the spot, We all had different entrees - quesadillas, enchiladas, etc and enjoyed them all. Reasonably priced and service was good. Would definitely eat here again.

The place was loud, so loud that our waitress had to keep asking us to repeat our orders and still brought us a wrong item. She also had too many tables, and was very apologetic about the service. The margaritas weren't good, tasted like they used a cheap mix (we had a professional bartender in our group). Most of the... More

Had the veggie quesadilla. It was a taco stuffed with grilled previously frozen veggies. Didn't taste horrible but definitely wasn't a quesadilla. Drinks lack of quality and are expensive. Top shelf margaritas are made with Cuervo, not an agave tequila. Paid $20 for a margarita made with patron which wouldn't be my choice and was nothing special. No vegetarian options... More

It's a little hole in the wall. Chairs are not comfortable but the food was awesome. My entire family enjoyed all of our meals. We even had doggy bags to take back to our room.

I enjoyed the food very much. It is not a large place but they do have a pleasant outdoor area with people passing by. Definitely good Mexican!

After numerous recommendations we stopped in for lunch and were happy that we did. Nothing fancy but the food is terrific (tacos, enchiladas & awesome guacamole) and the margaritas were delicious! Service was prompt and cheery. If you like Mexican food, put this restaurant on your must try list!
