“Great Tex Mex with great prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2011

We went to El Guapo's for dinner. Ordered "Guapamole" (guacamole), queso and the bacon wrapped jalepeno's for appetizers. the Guac is delicious and the serving size is huge, enough for 6-8 people to share. Queso is excellent too. Their tortilla chips are thin, light and not greasy, the flour tortillas were perfect. Their menu is overwhelming, so much to choose, all of it very good. I highly recommend the Supernatural Quesadillas, they were amazing, best ever. Service was excellent, the atmosphere is quirky but laid-back and the prices are very reasonable, nothing we ordered was over $10. Tried the fried ice cream for dessert, also huge and $4, it was ok, not as good as expected.

“A great lunch place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2010

El Guapos was recommended by friends, and we were glad it was. Our other 'local' places had not kept up to par, and we were glad El Guapos wasn't too far from us. Great lunch specials, and staff are usually on top of their game.

“Good Tex-Mex”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2009

My wife and I have become frequent diners here since stumbling upon the restaurant a few months ago. It is good tex-mex at a fair price, and you can't beat the happy hour drink prices. The restaurant can be a little loud when crowded, but what Mexican restaurant isn't! Also, the service has always been good, and the last few visits we've had the same waiter who remembers what we usually order.

“You're right!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2008

El Guapo's is not Mexican food. It is definitely Tex-Mex with a little bit of gringo thrown in. I love this place. Lunch time is always crowded but never waiting and the owner comes out and plays El Guapo "lotto". If your table number is picked, the whole table's ticket is "on the house!" I've been lucky enough to win twice!

I think El Guapo's is the best Tex-Mex in Denton!
