There are a lot of reasons to visit Guero’s, a Tex-Mex spot on South Congress, but unfortunately the food isn’t one of them. You’re here for the massive Oak Garden in the back—where you can sit in the shade of century-old oak trees and listen to live music by local musicians, with a cold beer in hand.
You’re here for the front patio that spills onto a busy intersection, where street buskers are blasting loud trombone covers of Ed Sheeran. And you’re here for a midday margarita stop to help calm your nerves after touching a $1200 button down shirt at ByGeorge next door during a long afternoon of shopping. It won’t be the best margarita you’ve ever had, or the strongest, but it might be the one you need at the moment.
If you’re just looking for a bit of fuel, grab some queso flameado or some beef al carbon tacos, and prepare to be sufficiently whelmed. Then, grab a drink and head to the patio, because that’s what you’re here for.
