I am a huge ceviche fan and order it anytime I see it offered. Until today any where in Mexico did it best. No more, this tops them all!!! Unfortunately, I did not take a picture. There were shrimp, scallops, and baby squid perfectly marinated in citrus with just the right amount of heat. The presentation included slices of avocado,... More

If not for the prices, I would have rated it a 5. Margaritas are very big (and $15. a pop). The fajitas are excellent. (If you want shredded cheese, it's an extra $1.50). You get the point. We go here only occasionally but would do much more frequently if it wasn't so expensive.

For Mexican food - it's either going to blow you away with (a) taste or (b) atmosphere/experience. Guapo's did neither, but it was a nice experience. Restaurant - The building itself was really fun. Nice and open and the fountain is great. It helps cover up all the talking! But you can see into the kitchen and the servers standing... More

I love trying out new places and getting the first impression. I tried Guapo's for the first time as a recommendation. This festive and lively place had the making to be a great experience. The hospitality was fantastic. The wait staff was on point and then it happened. The food arrived and my experience turned bad. I had steak soft... More

Nice Tex Mex food served in a good comfortable environment by happy waiters ! What's not to like ? All your usual favourites are on the menu plus some solid grills and ribs etc - make sure you get guacamole with green spicy sauce on the side

We go here often, and with people from out of town visiting us. It has always been excellent. Consistently good food and pleasant servers. Reliable compared to some other Tex Mexican restaurants in the neighborhood. However we always go about 4pm in a Saturday before it gets very very busy.

Our appetizer and the main meals arrived within less than 2 minutes of each other (strike one). The appetizer and at least two main dishes we ordered included an identical combination of guacamole, strips of salad, sour cream, and a salsa mix in which the tomatoes definitely do not appear to be fresh. All rather bland and unimaginative (strike two).... More
