Much to my surprise, Guapo's had excellent food and service. The sopa de tortilla was delicious and had many tantalizing flavors, order it with chicken to get a nice hearty meal...the salsa tastes great...and the best dish of the night was the guapo plato grande...go hungry leave full...

I dined at Guapo's as part of a large group (approximately 20) and they handled it well! We were seated in a room to ourselves and had 2 dedicated waiters who were appropriately attentive. Most shocking was the kitchen's ability to prepare and the staff to deliver all the meals within a timely manner and all delivered together!

The place decent, convenient because it was downstairs from the hotel. I ordered seafood burrito, my shrimp was over cooked, tough and chewy.

A large family group enjoyed a nice dinner at Guapo's. Food was good if not amazing, good drinks. Kids liked the tortilla making machine. Atmosphere was so-so, nothing special but they were able to accommodate our large crowd.

Five of us went there for an early dinner. The food and drinks were good and we all had food left over to take home!

Good cold weather, weekend dining. It's no fun to be seated for dinner and feel a draft every time someone opens a door - warm, but not stifling. Food is of consistent high quality, with generous (not overwhelming) portions. Everything appears to be home-made, with pride, including warm tortilla chips and salsa. Order anything.

This was not what I was expecting when my husband took me out for Valentine's Day dinner. However, the food was fabulous. The chips and salsa light and fresh. Not greasy!! Then the homemade guapomole... At this point I was beginning to fill up. For appetizers we had the Tamal De Elote and Platanos Fritos. Both were good sized portions... More

We stopped late one Saturday night in January. The place was packed, which is a good sign. The tortilla soup was to die for. Never had this version - delicious. The chips and salsa were fresh. The Margaritas were spot on. A must return.
