Stopped in for a drink and a place to charge my phone while waiting for a friend. Had a couple of margaritas that were tasty, but not worth the $9 price. The server/bartender was exceptionally friendly though.

My family and I decided to eat here on a whim this past Saturday. We live right down the block from this restaurant and had never tried it, so we thought we'd give it a chance. We were seated right away and the waiter took...More

I'm just going to cut to the chase: The food here is amazing. We went for brunch after a night out (and, like a couple of other reviewers, got turned off by the line at a brunch place down the street and ended up here)....More

We had the California burrito and Huevos Mexicano. We were not disappointed. Portions were great, service was friendly and oh my gosh the salsa, quest and chips are delicious! Great price and we got t sit outside and enjoy the weather. Great place to eat!

When we want great Mexican food with superb margaritas and super friendly service for our guests we take them to Huapango. Recent guests from Germany, Portland and Hollywood all enjoyed their dining experience. Especially love their happy hour and brunch and tamarind margaritas.

Food took over an hour to arrive wtih no apology from the waiter, who didn't even bother to replenish our drinks or chips as we waited. They were understandably busy on New Year's day, but the waiter should have taken better care to see we...More

I enjoyed the fish taco and the Mexican beer on tap. The salad was very large. and the ceviche looked tasty. Chips and salsa were good, too. I'll definitely return.

Here's my review: The good news is it's on a busy street corner. The bad news is, well, you get the idea. There's not much to be done about the bus stop out front or the weed-surrounded dilapidated tractor next door, but faster and more attentive service would help to distract customers. The beer menu is lengthy and several are offered in pint drafts, more would be better. Chips and salsa are complimentary but the cheesy one is oddly reminiscent of velveeta and picante sauce. Entrees were colorful and flavorful and food is generally good. The biggest challenge for Huapango's is the street corner location and the best remedy would seem to be service that is louder and faster than the street.
