I read a previous review before arriving about being over charged for a frozen margarita & I was very disappointed that they tried to over charge me for 2 of the 4 we ordered! When I questioned the extra $4 the server said, “that’s because they use fresh pineapple juice” which was a very dumb response in my opinion! I told him, “please advise management that the extra $2 needs to be stated on the menu before someone orders. I did not pay that extra $4...outside of this mishap everything was fine...

Aesthetically pleasing and family friendly, but the food is really bland. Don't waste your money on the House Marg's, because they are basically water with lime in them. The server we had was not great and as I watched the other servers, this seemed to be the case. They need to be more attentive to their sections. I would recommend coming here for the cheese dip or some appetizers but not for a full meal.

Kitchen was very backed up but, our service recognized that and apologized, as well as kept us posted on what was going on. My food was great but, my husband said he could tell his had been sitting in the window for a while before the food run.

Cute atmosphere, and very attentive, friendly, and responsive service. Menu is a combination of Tex Mex classics and fun creative tacos. Extensive margarita and cocktail list. Seems good for large groups. We weren’t offered a kids menu but my kids were happy ordering a single taco from the regular menu.

Was excited to book wife’s birthday dinner for party of four. When we arrived there was no hostess and after about two minutes we finally engaged the bartender who sat us. The dining space is huge and there was approximately four other tables ( no more than 10 patrons) eating. We placed our order and the food was delivered on an reasonable time. There was a mixup with my wife’s order but the manager came out promptly to apologize and compted her meal. The margaritas are good &strong!!!!

The service was great. The waiter came to our table several times to make sure we were okay and did not need anything. He was very friendly. My wife liked her strawberry Margarita but my lime margarita tasted watered down. The steak taco was really good, but the fried fish taco was lacking that extra kick.

We decided to try this restaurant after running a race earlier in the day. I was very hungry and ordered the seafood enchiladas. The cheese sauce topping was over the top rich, and a less heavy white sauce would have been preferable. It was so filling, I took most of my side dishes home. My husband very much enjoyed his steak entree, which was very tender. I gave him my black beans since he likes them more than I do. Our wait person was very nice and checked on us regularly, as did the manager.

Great menu with several great combos. Fajitas were exceptional. Service was great without being pushy.
We will definitely return and highly recommend it to Tex-Mex foodies. The only downside was that Odul's was the only choice of non-acholic beers for us designated drivers. At least have Beck's or St. Paulie 's.

Delicious food, super service and nice hostess. Georgia was our server and she didn’t miss a beat. Fast and friendly. The staff did a great job with our party of 7. The main dining area is loud so we sat in the side room. Love good Tex-Mex food. Looking forward to going back soon. Highly recommend if you are in the area, and worth the drive if you are not.

Guaco Joe's accommodated our party of 10. We were seated on time on a Saturday evening for dinner. Or table was pretty tight along a wall and it was hard to squeeze into our seats. The food came out quickly and our server was great. She gave our group all the time we needed to order and kept our drinks refreshed. The restaurant was a little loud. It wouldn't have bothered me if our group wasn't so big. I definitely recommend for a smaller group.

My husband thought the Steak burrito he ordered was the best he'd ever had. I loved the steak arrachera but not so much the chicken tinga. Our friends got the seafood enchilada and thought it was perfect for sharing and very rich and tasty.
