I'd say 'chido' which means cool or 'vaya' which means you're surprised (pleasantly) by something.

I assume you mean awesome as slang (like, "cool"), not the more literal or literary useage (awe-inspiring). If so, as you probably know, slang is very regional. You've received answers from some who take your question one way, and others who chose the other option. For example, "chido" is used in Mexico, maybe other latino countries. I think they say "cheve' in Puerto Rico, although I'm not sure. A good question!

You get multiple answers because there are different options depending on the country. Something universal would be fantastico or maravilloso.

Best choices for: Mexico: que chido, que padre, padrisimo Spain: guay, genial Colombia/Caribbean: Chevere
