The atmosphere is quite nice, but the food is "meh". First, it was not hot but a lukewarm. Flavor (enchiladas) is average and the condiments and rice and beans are nothing to write home about.

My family visited Guapo's on Father's Day looking for a fun meal. Being Father's Day we expected to be busy so that wasn't a problem. We actually got seated right away. First off the acoustics are so bad. It echoes every where and basically it was sitting down trying to eat and talk while watching a rock concert. The waitress... More

This restaurant is extremely busy, which is a direct result of excellent food and drinks. The frozen margarita I had was outstanding. The tamales plate which included rice and beans was excellent and included fresh guacamole and sour cream. The chips and salsa are also excellent and addictive. Prices are modest and reasonable.

Guapos is awesome, pure and simple. We eat here regularly and always receive great service and great food. The margaritas and Tacos Oaxaquenos are my personal fav!

Ceviche mixto, loma saltado and mariscos saltado were fantastic. Service was amazing. We were seated immediately even though the parking lot was busy. The restaurant was clean and beautiful. The only negative thing was it was noisy. Guess everyone was having fun.

This is about as close as you can get to eating in a restaurant in the Mexico pavilion at Epcot, except the the food here is outstanding (unlike Epcot). The whole experience, from the setting to the food, is authentic and fun and great for families. You cannot miss the fajitas (steak or chicken) or marinated flank steak, which are... More

We arrived at Guapo's without a reservation at 7:00 on a Saturday night and were seated in about 25 minutes after having a glass of wine in the crowded and noisy bar area. Service was good, the Marguerita was good, and the food was great. I had my favorite--the chilli rellenos platter. Guapo's is consistently good, has a varied menu,... More
