The Oak Garden at Guero’s, in my opinion, is the crown jewel of SoCo. With huge oak shade trees, live music Wedneday - Thursday, hand crafted Margaritas, and some of the best tacos el pastor in town. You’re guaranteed to have a good time.
Best time of day:
What everyone knows
Since they opened their doors in 1993, they have been hand-making corn tortillas, which makes all the difference and sais a lot about there dedication to the food. The faded paint on the brick walls, colorful cantina tables, and folk art everywhere are all part of the charm of this Austin Tex-Mex Treasure.
What they don't tell you
Do it like a local
The Tortilla soup is arguably the best in town…a must-try in the fall and winter months.
Guero’s can get ridiculously crowded during happy hour and on the weekends, but thankfully, the bar is loaded with enough tequila to survive a zombie apocalypse…or a 30 minute wait. Grab a basket of chips, load up at the self-serve salsa bar in the middle of the restaurant, and head out to the Oak Garden to enjoy some live music while you wait.
For the History Buffs
Rob and Cathy Lippincott’s love of Mexican street food set the foundation for one of Austin’s most beloved restaurants. Guero’s Taco Bar, a SoCo favorite, has been serving patrons for over 30 years, relocating in the mid-1990s from East Oltorf Street to its current home. With the vintage patina of the Central Feed and Seed store lettering preserved on the face of the building, and a second-generation takeover in the making, we can expect the tradition of family-focused, handmade, and delicious Interior Mexican food to live on.
