Wish I could give this a minus rating; it is that bad! An organization we belong to meets here so we are stuck with it. Nothing is freshly made. All comes out of a can or jar and what comes out of the jar is watered down. The salsa verde is so thin, it is unrecognizable. The meat is not cooked in the sauce and is thus dried out and tasteless, but no matter, the sauce served with it is sparse, watered down and tasteless anyway. The only thing in this place that's any good is the imported beer. We grew up on an area of the U.S. known for Mexican food and this is NOT real Mexican food. Even Taco Bell is better. Don't even think of eating here!

Popular spot in Ava with friendly staff. The food is not spicy, but it is good, solid Mexican food and worth the stop.

We came through Ava on our way to visit the Laura Ingalls Wilder home in nearby Mansfield. The Guacamole Mexican Restaurant is a new addition to the list of eating establishments in Ava, offering a wide variety of Mexican dishes (including vegetarian) and steaks.

The restaurant is clean and sharp. Decor is pleasing to the eye, not overdone, and there's plenty of seating space for large parties.

We started off with chips and salsa that were truly fresh, made in-house. The salsa was mild with no hint of hot peppers, but had a fresh-picked flavor from tomatoes, onions, and cilantro. We couldn't stop going back to it.

For main dishes, we had chicken and beef enchiladas, and beef tacos, All were well prepared, well presented, and tasted great - authentic food prepared and served up by people of authentic origin. However, I note that none of the items was spicy hot and I'm not sure how far the menu goes in satisfying the tastes of those who like more "kick" in their food. I'll have to leave that for other trippers to report. I also note with curiosity the preponderance of cheese sauce on entrees across the menu, but they seem quite willing to adjust things in or out to please your palate.

Overall this was a great experience for us. Wait staff was friendly and helpful, and kept the beverages and salsa coming. Flavors were good and portion sizes were large relative to price, making an excellent value for the money. We took a chance on a new place and for us it was definitely worth the stop.
