From decor and atmosphere to greeting to servers this place was A+. Food isn't typical Mexican. Very unique, chef-inspired dishes. Don't expect a 10 page menu with standard fare Mexican. These dishes are pieces of art, thoughtfully prepared and delicious. And reasonably priced. I had a pork dish served in small circular corn cups. My wife had a veggie enchilada.... More

I was excited to eat at a nicer latin flavored restaurant and tried Guaca Mole after a few years hiatus. I visited with a friend around 6pm on a Wednesday evening. There were plenty of seats to choose from. Decor is nice but direct lighting over each table was a bit bright. Hector (name on receipt) was our waiter. He... More

Most entrees are $15-20. Chips and salsa also carry a charge. But the food is wonderful. It is the best we have found in Louisville, and we have tried several businesses. I would characterize it as more of a Nouveau Mexican, with a modern take on traditional foods. Still wonderful. Not as much heat as I would have liked but... More

Besides all the American food, this is one of the better restaurants where you can have delicious food for a reasonable price. Friendly persons too.

The menu has your typical Mexican fare, with some unique items as well. The way it is prepared kicks it up several notches for me. I had the Chicken Enchiladas that were absolutely bursting with flavor. When the server asked me if I wanted dessert, I told him that if I was going to eat any more, I'd have more... More

From greeting, to service, excellent creative plates offering a neat twist to "Mexican" food, presented artistically and promptly. If very busy night especially weekends expect crowd. Spiced pork is great, while even simple pulled chicken double corn soft wrapped made freshly. Perfect touches, I always dine when in the area and even have driven to just eat and go back... More

Sent across the parking lot by the front desk lady, this turned out to be a real gem. Plenty of seats on a quiet Wednesday night - at the bar was comfortable. Several Mexican Beers on Draft. Food was modern/traditional Mexican/South American. Like the Carnitas were the best I've ever had - with a "bark" of a sweet spicy glaze.... More

The food is amazing as is the service! Can't say enough nice things about this place! We have never been disappointed when we have a chance to eat out which is a rarity with two small kids. That's not to say it is not kid friendly-the wait staff always goes out of there way to make sure that our small... More

My favorite Mexican restaurant in Louisville. I have been here several times. The Carnitas and Fish Tacos are great.

We were staying at the SpringHill suites for a hockey tournament and walked over bc it was convenient. The food was excellent! The carnitas and carne asada were so good! (Carnits were the BEST!) Good queso and margaritas too!

Thank Rmcincy
