Guero’s Taco Bar Restaurant Review

: This spacious south Austin landmark hums with the frantic energy of a loyal lunch crowd seeking a Tex-Mex fix. You might even spot a visiting celebrity from the San Jose Hotel next door hovering over bounteous plates of sizzling shrimp and beef fajitas. Signature tacos al pastor is an interior-Mexican delight of marinated pork on a small corn tortilla chiquita topped with chopped onions, cilantro and fresh pineapple. We also suggest the alambres, marinated beef or chicken with bacon, peppers and onions grilled al carbon style. Vegan diners are plenty surprised to find a special menu with fifteen items dedicated just to them. For a weekend breakfast, choose fresh-squeezed orange juice and huevos rancheros, or egg and potato tacos piled high with leafy garnishes. Thirsty? Belly up to the bar for an icy cold Mexican beer or hand-shaken margarita that eschews syrup for real lime juice. Also visit the complimentary self-serve salsa bar for mild to spicy sauces and accompaniments to embellish your meal. Don’t miss the green tomatillo sauce.
