Gueros has been an iconic restaurant in Austin for years.  Right next door sits an outdoor stage playing free live music or radio broadcast.  Grabbing a beer, margarita or cocktail in a relaxed casual atmosphere is an excellent way to start off your experience in one of the hippest areas of town. 

Tip: Gueros Restaurant is open for lunch and dinner, and also provides catering. Free Parking garage located behind HopDoddy.
