All of the entrees I’ve had are full of flavor. The service is excellent as well. The outside seating is especially nice- overlooking the lake.

We have been regulars at Guapos since 1996 or earlier, because we like the food and we feel comfortable at this place. Tonight, the waiter absolutely sucked, he took 30+ minutes to bring the check, of course because he had already added 20% tip to...More

I walked here from the Marriott after a late workout so it was very convenient. They start you with fresh made light chips and salsa. The chips were great but the salsa was chunky and very watery. It did have a nice bite but be...More
