I was very impressed with this restaurant, that I think has been there for quite some time. On the Sunday when I had lunch, there were lots of Spanish families coming in for lunch after church. They serve great margaritas, and the salsa is wonderful.

Good food atmosphere ruined by the loud music that keeps us from relaxing. Do not want to go there because it is too loud and you cannot get your waitress unless you wave your whole arm.....

We visited Guapo's on a Saturday night at a late hour. It was packed and we found ourselves dining at a corner couples table. Although the restaurant was so busy, the service was great. Our server saw our impatient hungry faces and kept assuring us that the food would be out shortly. I got the butterfly shrimp fajitas and they... More

This restaurant consistently offers very good food and their margaritas are excellent. Great location near retail, movie theatre complex and a man made lake complete with paddle boats and live ducks. Lots of outdoor seating.

Excellent Mexican food and staff is awesome on every visit. Place veta full get there early. Also has outside seating that faces the lake. Can be a little loud when it's crowded but who cares, it's a fun place to eat. Don't forget try the Loco Magarita!

The Chile Relenos platter was good with not too large of side portions of beans or rice. The outdoor seating area was loud during soccer games, but otherwise comfortable. The best aspect of the meal was the mixed drink variety and quality. Not fine dining, but easy going and nice variety of drinks and food options.

We ate here for more than 20 years but the ownership has been changed; as well as the food. It stays the similar quality and service but the price kept on going up.
