Ok food. Ok service

I was served quickly. My food arrived insanely quickly. It was good, no complaints, but nothing spectacular. I'd go back.

My boyfriend and I took his mother here for mother's day. The food was absolutely amazing and they even had a mariachi band playing! We will definitely go back. The service was incredible, we felt so welcomed.

Came for business lunch. Chips were very greasy. Salsa was like tomato soup with some onions and beige tomatoes- very liquid and impossible to eat. We ordered queso dip- it came with different chips- they were thicker and almost stale. Cheese had no flavor- it was like melted Velveeta. I would not recommend the queso dip. We had enchiladas (chicken)-... More

This was one of my favorite places to go for happy hour! Their margaritas are strong, so pick a driver. My boyfriend and I would go there for dinner (Happy Hour lasts til 7 PM) and just order off the happy hour menu. With several margaritas and dinner, we still never paid more than $20 unless we were seriously celebrating.... More

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!
