Lunch and dinner 7 days
Guzman Y Gomez is a fast food restaurant specialising in authentic Mexican food.
The lack of authentic Mexican food available in Australia prompted founder Steve Marks to open up his own taqueria. Now there are over 80 outlets Australia wide and outlets internationally in Singapore and Japan.
Their goal is to change the bad reputation of fast food by serving extremely fresh and high quality food at a fast food pace.
Unlike traditional fast food outlets, there are no microwaves or freezers at Guzman Y Gomez and all food is prepared fresh daily.
All ingredients are sourced locally from farmers and suppliers proudly supporting Australian made.
The venue is split into two, downstairs where you can place your order while upstairs is the dining area complete with outdoor balcony overlooking Rundle Mall. Splashes of yellow paint and brightly patterned mosaic tiles gave the venue a fun and cheery atmosphere while lush greenery gave it warmth.
Corn chips. These corn chips have been changed 18 times because Mark wanted the perfect corn chip and boy did he deliver. They were thin, crisp and extremely light and crunchy.
Guacamole. The guacamole had a soft mouth feel with a delightful punch of garlic, lime while tomatoes and coriander added texture to the mixture.
Burrito bowl. The bowls are a lighter option and topped with fluffy rice, fresh salsa and crunchy corn chips.
The chicken had a beautiful chargrilled flavour and was incredibly succulent and tender while the slow cooked beef and pork were both moist and melted in the mouth. All meats are seasoned with a range of spices and marinades to give a full flavour.
Their values revolve around family and unity, welcoming everyone and having a good time.
Every time a Guzman Y Gomez restaurant is opened, they celebrate by having Free Burrito Day to invite everyone over to enjoy a delicious burrito.
Guzman Y Gomez are aiming to serve over 6500 burritos during the give away to break their previous record.
They will be giving away free burritos and having a mariachi band playing all day from 12pm to 7pm so make sure you come down and join in all the festivities.
