I love the chips here and yes when I pick a Mexican restaurant the quality of the chips matters to me. But I love the chicken fajitas and the strawberry margaritas. One star lost because sometimes service is slow.

I eat lunch at Guapos often. Their food and the atmosphere is very authentic. Everything that I've tried has been delicious.

This is a restaurant that's a lot of fun and serves awfully good food, too. Chips & salsa went well with my sangria & a family member's margarita. I had the Guapo's Salad which was so full of flavor it needed no dressing. Others ordered fajitas which they said were delicious. Nice kids' menu that included ice cream for dessert.... More

Location is beautiful, you can choose to sit outside with a lakeside view or indoor with a cool setup. Food is very good, big portions. Evenings are generally packed so you might have to wait for a few, but overall you end up content.

While staying at the Marriott, lake front, Guapos is just a few steps from the hotel. I ate lunch and dinner here and each meal was fabulous. A definite "must try".

Tasty food, fun ambiance. Rio always offers a nice view and this restaurant sits on a great spot next to the movie theater. Our kids love it too. The enchiladas are to die for. Good tamal as well.
