We went here around 6:00 on a Friday night, we were seated right away and were eating about 10-15 minutes from the time we walked in the door. The food was hot and good! Good sized portions, well seasoned. The service was superb! It became crazy busy by the time we were done with smoking hot platters of fajitas coming... More

I had dinner here with my wife and friend last weekend while in town. We enjoyed the meal and drinks, and the quality of food for the price is very good. Even though this restaurant has been here 4 years, the decor is almost nil. Basic tables and booths, no wall decor. This meek ambience was brightened by Stefany, the... More

Went on a Tuesday night, and it was not crowded. But it seemed every table had a birthday party, which meant the sombrero and song by the servers came out. One table after another. Anyway- food. I had the platter of a taco, two enchiladas. Very average. The margarita was good. Service was slow. Overall I was not impressed but... More

Great dining experience. Margaritas were fantastic. Tortillas were tasty too. Alejandro, the server, did a great job.

The fish tacos were decent, the fish was a little dry but not too bad. Service was good. I don't think I'd order the fish again but I'd go back and try some other dishes.

Good food. Service was little rushed. We had not even finished appetizers and they brought the entree. Nice location. Patio seating next to lake is great.

Never had fried plantains before-am now a huge fan. The Margaritas were tart and loaded. I got Guapos Tacos, and was not disappointed. My stomach said stop and my mouth said don't leave one bite. THEN we got dessert. Out of this world Flan, Tres Leches Cake and Sopapillas that were just delightful. If I lived closer this would be... More

My husband and I went to Guapos for dinner with some friends. My husband has an onion allergy and is always reluctant to eat Mexican food. Guapos accommodated his allergy better than any other restaurant. They even made him special salsa because their regular salsa was filled with large chunks of onions ( and it was terrific). The staff was... More
