Consistently fast and pleasant service, and great spinach enchiladas. A family favorite for many years.

Was told a 20 min wait, after 30 mins was told 15 more and they lied and originally said it was 45. A day later, still did not get a text. The food is supposedly good, but certainly don't wait when the neighbors are also excellent.

Dinner after successful workday. Has visited multiple times and the fajitas have always been a success. Plenty of meat and good sides. Also the chips and salsa that you get to start with is generous and tasty.

I had a cup of the Chili Con Carne. It was excellent at 7.95 non HH price!! The chips they served with the Chili were crisp and not oily like the chips they serve with the free salsa. Sometimes there can be communication barrier between server and customer but overall very nice servers. I speak little Spanish so I do... More

Is right by the lake, with a great patio and view. Service was good, and food was good. However for the price, I was expecting more meat (specially in plates like nachos).

Ate here twice in two weeks during work travel. Service is speedy and attentive. Given the option, always opt for the outdoor seating. Cool, waterfront atmosphere and inside can get incredibly loud. Recommend the ceviche and guac!

I have never heard of Guapos prior to moving to Montgomery County. Since the first time I visited, I fell in love. Everything I tried off of the menu has been excellent, including their drinks. I love the margaritas with the corona. The vibe next to the bar is cool and they recently did some upgrades in the bar area.... More

I loveeee my steak fajitas here and my carne asada, there is no other place that makes them better and I've been to quiet a few places. My mom's favorite dish here is the chicken tortilla soup.

Guapos is the biggest restaurant of its kind I've ever been in. I'd estimate it seated around 200, give or take. The place was packed the night we were there and the service was excellent. The menu offered a number of vegan options along with the usual fare. I had a bean burrito, which came with rice, guacamole, more beans,... More
