Run here to reward your taste buds. I heartily recommend the fajitas washed down with a large margarita. The chips and salsa are always fresh and a great way to start,

Guapos is a good place to knock back a few Margeritas and enjoy traditional American/Mexican fajitas, burritos. Chalupas and quesadillas. Respectable chips and salsa. The staff is friendly and accomodating and prices are quite resonable.

Was there for a dinner. Was served by Alexandra, a kind lady. Tried a seafood soup with a fajita, both was OK. Price reasonable for the area. Free internet available.

I will say that the place was packed so maybe it was just my meal that was not impressive. Several others in my party said their meals were ok, not great. One person was well pleased with his selection. The staff was incredible, ready to help in any way. The drinks were above average. Well done. My only other negative... More

Good food, reasonably priced, good service. Stayed at the Doubletree next door, which was very convenient and easy alternative to hotel dining. Overall good value.

Ate here since it was next to our hotel and recommended by the front desk. The menu was a little different from a chain Mexican restaurant and looked interesting. The food was OK. The chips and salsa (very chunky, obviously home-made) were the best part. Our meals (roasted pork, chile rellanos) were just average. One of the chile's was still... More

The first night here I did there sit down in the main area of the restaurant. It was ok, I wasn't super impressed and the prices were a little on the high side. I do love a good margarita though so I went back a second night and without asking - they just sat me in the bar for happy... More

I stayed at the Doubletree next door and I asked the front desk how Guapo's was and was told it's pretty good. She was correct. The taco chips are thin and light and the salsa is tasty and NOT fiery hot - my preference. I ordered the Tamales de Torreon - a dish with two chicken tamales cover (not smothered)... More

The guapomole appetizer is delicious!! Get it spicy!! The dinner prices are average, but the alcohol is extremely overpriced, which is unfortunate because a $20 large margarita just isn't enough!

Fine food at a reasonable price. Expansive menu. Only complaint is no draft beer. Other than that it seemed authentic enough and the portions were nice sized. Their version of tortilla soup was really good as well. If you want a straight forward Mexican fix this place should do the trick.
