Truly the local's favorite Mexican restaurant with a festive atmosphere, great specials, and super service. Established in 1984 by Mario and Karen Gutierrez as a place for great authentic Mexican food and delicious frozen drinks. Gutierrez Mexican Restaurant has been named the “Best Mexican Restaurant” for two years in a row by the Hays Daily News Readers Choice Awards. Owner Mario Gutierrez says, “We uniquely name our own dishes and make them signature dishes. We’ve had the same ownership and the same family for over 20 years, and we are not going anywhere. We offer people a very personable, entertaining experience, besides great food”.
