Bland, overpriced. There are better burrito joints (though even they're not *that* great). – Absolutely bland. Beans taste like they may have been poured from a can. Perhaps they were just boiled with a little salt. If you want a veggie burrito, this is not the place. Maybe the meat dishes are spiced better, but I could do better in my own kitchen blind folded. Overpriced too at that. If I recall correctly, it was close to $8 for a burrito.
As boring as it is, even Taco del Mar is better. As far as local burrito chains go I'd skip Guyamas. As sad as it is, for a trimmed down taco joint, surprisingly mega-chain chipoltle actually offers some of the best you can find in the Seattle area.
If big burly over-spiced & salted burritos is your fair, hit-up Gorditos. If you want 4 square meals for $6, it can't be beat. Otherwise, Seattle's got jack.
Great Mexican Food – You can't beat this place for fast and great food. The wet burrito is incredible and the price if more than fair, highly recommend.
very good food....a winner – this place has an authentic menu and good service. i have been here a few times and had good experiences...good chips and salsa. fast service....carne asada is very good.
Affordable Mexican fare served up in a brightly cheerful restaurant. – In Short
Since most of the staff in this sunny taqueria speaks little English, any Español at all will help when ordering. Meats--including cabeza (beef cheeks), slow-cooked carnitas (pork) and even lengua (tongue)--are marinated in chili-infused sauces. The menu offers everything from flautas to whole fried fish. The simple taco is your choice of fish, meats or veggies wrapped in two grilled corn tortillas.
Yummy to my tummy – If I'm looking for an AUTHENTIC burrito de asada (steak burrito)... I head to this place. Honestly, I can't find a burrito like this in the greater seattle area. Maybe people like sour cream and cheese loaded on a burrito... but little do Seattlelites know that a real burrito comes with pico de gallo and pure asada with a dash of lime. That's only the burritos... you can only imagine what the rest of the menu is like... DELICIOUS!
Almost Real – Good authentic MX taqueria, though not quite as homestyle as a great MX food cart. The tacos Carnitas, Chorizo and Al Pastor are all great. The two chile platillos are good too. My one complaint is that the meat tends to be diced too small. Bigger pieces just taste better. Also the burritos are served in paper and foils and are hard to eat.
Terrible – The service is consistently terrible, this includes waiting for ten minutes to place an order while the cashier gossips on the phone, receiving the incorrect order, and receiving a burrito with fixings that tasted like they were sitting there for a few days. I am no longer going there just because it is 3 blocks away from my apartment.
Simply the Best. – Since returning to Seattle after 15 years, I have had a hard time finding authentic Mexican food. This is it. Just like home cooking and the help is always friendly.
Delicious, authentic food – Taqueria Guaymas has authentic, delicious Mexican food. It's hard to find Mexican food like this in Seattle!
Great Tacos! – I go to the one in Redmond. They have a great selection of Tacos... the real kind, not the taco bell kind. Their Lengua meat preparation is really tasty. The burritos are a perfect blend of ingredients and wonderful real flavor... not artificial.
They also have some really nice Carne Asada and Pork Verde. Service is great... quick and courteous.
