Guapo’s is an excellent Mexican restaurant. The seating is tight. It is loud. But, the food is wonderful. The wait staff are professional and made sure we had plenty of drinks, chips and salsa. I had vegetable fajitas. Seriously, the best I have ever had....More

When I called about accessibility, I was not told that the entrance on Woodmont Avenue was not accessible. So I parked in the public lot (Handicap Spots - Free) on Woodmont Avenue and opened the restaurant door to a stairwell. I then looked at the...More

Maybe it's always been a dump but when we were grad students it seemed fine. Portions are enormous but it's such awful Texmex I could barely eat it.
