Interesting ambience, super delicious food and very friendly staff with great service....it was really a good time here. The chips and salsa are so tasty that you might just not stop and have a salsa chips meal even before you order the food. The restaurant has great look from inside and is very clean. The prices are really good for the overall experience. A must go restaurant if you are in Vikings, Georgia. More...

Guaco Joe’s is great. Atmosphere is relaxed, staff is friendly, food is fresh and delicious. Evan took great care of my family. The new mac and cheese with choriza was fantastic! Coleslaw was dry and not tasty, but it was made clear that it would be leaving the menu, probably for the best. Overall, good experience. More...

This place has some of the best tacos around. They have a $2 Taco special on several nights. The tacos are large and high quality. Being a VIP member pays off with specials several nights a week, and the program is free. It is in a nice shopping center area in Vinings and is very clean. Great spot! More...

Was really excited that this place stays open so late. Got there about 11:30pm on a Saturday night and they weren't very busy so we were seated right away. The inside was beautiful and the staff was very friendly. Not a huge selection of menu options (for Mexican) but the ones that they had all sounded good. Wait time on food, accuracy and temperature were all good. My steak taco was very good but I was really disappointed in the street corn. I was excited to see this on the menu but sad to say that it really had no flavor- just tasted like regular corn. Definitely a different flare from the normal Mexican restaurants. I would recommend this place. More...

My review is based off of a program called Fooda. Different restaurant vendors visit my place of employment to sell their food at lunch time to employees. Guaco Joe's is located on Sugar Loaf Parkway however they did business with us at our facility in Gwinett County.I chose the Fish Tacos. They are made with whitefish, jicama slaw, chipotle tartar sauce, fresh cilantro. Mine were fried not grilled. That tarter sauce is bomb! The rice that came with it was exceptional too. It wasn't dry and had flavors that pop in your mouth. I think it was cilantro. Made a world of difference. It was all very good. More...

Service was excellent-- our waiter (Tyse? Sorry if I misheard you) made an excellent special recommendation for a taco that my father loved. The salsa was killer, I'd pay for it as a side (don't make it a side). My only gripe was my chorizo taco was mainly potato. The potato was incredibly dry, and just sucked the moisture out of my mouth. My steak taco was great though. I'll definitely be back. More...

WOW!! We went here for the first time for my birthday dinner earlier this week and were so impressed! Love the atmosphere of the restaurant, and I wish I could have tried about 10 different things on the menu!! Not your typical Mexican food. We loved the salsa, queso, guacamole, chorizo Mac and cheese, shrimp poblano and I HIGHLY recommend the Blood Moon Margarita! Thank you Guaco Joe’s for a wonderful birthday dinner, we will definitely be back. More...

So delicious!! Last night was my second time eating here and I loved what I had the first time so I decided to order it again. The dish I love so much is the Vegetarian quesadilla, adding in the goat cheese was a fantastic idea! The dish is still yummy as a left over. I will say that their service is not the best but also not horrible. We sat outside and were forgot about several times but it wasn’t horrible enough not to return. More...

This was our first time dining here. My husband and I ordered the Chicken and Steak Fajitas. We ordered them, with only the vegetables that we like. And, they turned out Wonderful! Some of the best that we have ever had. The only item that we did not like, was the guacamole. It had WAY to much of an onion taste. But, our server was very good. We never had to wait for a refill. And, she returned to our table several times, to make sure that we liked all of our food, and that we had everything that we needed! Wonderful experience! We will definitely go there often! More...

In the historic church still blazoned with the La Paz signage, Guaco Joe's is destined to become a local Tex-Mex bar hangout. Redecorated with a beautiful hammered copper bar and lots of big flatscreen TVs, the new menu is a huge improvement. Skip the chips and salsa and try the ceviche starter, then eat your way thru the "Guaco's Tacos" -- definitely the highlight of the new menu! Pass on the Pinnacle martinis in favor of one of the bar's creative margaritas. More...
