“So so”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Came here on recommendation from a local front desk agent. Food was good nothing to write home about but our sever whom was also the owner was not friendly, he took my daughters food away before she was done and it felt like he was rushing us to Finnish

“New changes, new menu items!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

El Guapo has moved to a new location right downtown on 2nd ave. The new setting and atmosphere are amazing! So refreshing to see a bit of the old mixed with the new. Not to mention the new patio outside! Nothing like enjoying a margarita and enjoying Fernies beautiful downtown scenery, and the mountains too! I love the new coconut shrimp and the Pina Coladas. Can't wait to go back!

“Relaxed atmosphere and tasty food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

I love going to El Guapo’s diner. It is super causal and a little rough around the edges but the food is good and the atmosphere is fun. We normally take our kids and play a couple of free games of darts or ping pong while waiting for our food. They serve the best margaritas and ice cold beer…a great additional when you are eating a big stuffed burrito. The food is more Tex-Mex than Mexican but tasty none-the-less with a good selection and big portions. Certainly this isn’t fine dining – don’t expect a great décor and fancy service. But if you feel like going for a delicious bite to eat after a day on the hill or a long bike ride, El Guapo’s is definitely recommended.

“Decent eats for great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Friendly staff and really tasty cheap Mexican eats. Not much for atmosphere but a great place to hit up after the hill if you're not feeling like a big night out.

“Bad day for the cook”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

restaurant was not overly busy, but service was understaffed and the two cooks were not in top shape, they spent most of the time talking about their hangover instead of trying to focus on the work. I will bring my money somewhere else next time.
