“El Guapo - Now in Orleans, MA, Cape Cod”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

We never made it to the El Guapo's in Brewster but noticed it opened up another site one town over, in Orleans, Massachusetts. We had a late lunch there last Saturday. The place was hopping. I had just traveled to Chiapas, Mexico, and felt I was still there. The complimentary chips and salsa were authentic tasting. We had Dos Equis Amber (yum) draft, fish burrito, and a taco special (w/shrimp, and w/beef). All very good. Drinks a little slow in coming, but no complaints. The colors on the wall and decor, all really inviting, warm, and soothing. The athmosphere was lively, the acoustic could be overwhelming if you were hard of hearing, two TVs on. On the whole, we enjoyed it very much and will be back.

“Great food at new Orleans location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

The new Orleans is now open all year and services the same fresh ingredient quality as the Brewster summer location. The large bar is welcoming as are the several tables. The fish taco's remain my favorite.

“Best Salsa ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

The homemade salsa is worth the trip alone! Food is fresh and it makes for a fun stop along the bike path!

“Not Quite As Good As The Hype”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

This summer I decided to stop at El Guapo's again, since I hadn't been there since they moved to their current location. Everywhere I went I was hearing about how awesome the fish tacos were. I thought fish tacos were supposed to be light, baked fish. Instead it was deep fried fish with some cole slaw on it. It was generally good, but I thought it could have been better with baked fish. The soda was also flat that day. I also thought the price was too high for what we got.

“try it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Guapo's is well located by the rail trail in Brewster; near the Brewster Bike rental on Underpass Rd. Service is quick and the food is good and filling. Try the Guacamole. You eat outside or you take it home. Parking is tricky since they share a parking lot with a fish store and they also have a take out count (which is good for the odd person in your party that wants the lobster roll or the fish and chips).
Good for a change from the local chowder and seafood.
