“Incas, Aztecs and Mayans, ... Unite !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Our energy level upon arrival was SO HIGH because we - Along with Ben Afflack and 6 others had just escaped revolutionary Iran in a Swiss Air 747 ... okay,okay, it was a movie ... but we got thru Guapo's check point and into a giant tequila based beverage in an instant.

We four all flipped the menus open and shut and exclaimed: Fajitas !

Savvy, world adventurers such as we are, find it just plain enjoyable to sit back and shout out the Tex-Mex schtick offerings - planned in a NYC board room by a corporate chef. Guapo's was somehow different. to wit: everyone working, every position was, refreshingly Latino.

So, How was the food? Let me finish. the service was snappy ... everyone assisted their co-workers. I got dizzy watching the plates moving on and off the table. The cheeps-paper thin and hot, the salsa, thick and fresh.

And the fajitas ... were EXCELLENT. full cuts of beef and chicken, not paper thin slices.

Shucks, we even fell for the fried ice cream. Just a fun time with us -- the fun bunch.

“Average Tex Mex”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012 via mobile

I'll start tge review with positive note. Their desserts are good. That's all I got. Foods aren't great but not too too terrible. 3 times I've been there and all 3 times all meats were over cooked. Service is good.

“Great fajitas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Loved the fajitas, have tried some of the other menu items that were just average. The sangria is excellent. Sit outside if you can, the din inside can get pretty bad when crowded.

“Good Margaritas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

We went as a group. There were booths big enough for 6-8 people. The staff was very friendly and available. We started with chips, guacamole and margaritas. The margaritas were just right-make sure to get the large ones-they are the equivalent of 2 normal ones. All of us had different main dishes and were satisfied.
