    Ordered chicken enchiladas and a tamale de elote (sp). The enchiladas were dry and lacked cheese inside. The server spoke toy dinner mate but didn't speak with me, i.e. would you like another soda? Never asked me but asked my dinner mate. The whole meal sucked!

    The queso, guacamole and margaritas were fantastic. The servers were very attentive. Everyone enjoyed the food. The only thing was I ordered the Guapo Salad and it did not have the roasted red peppers in it. I asked for no tomatoes so I think they thought I didn't want either.

    This specific location was new to me. It could be that this particular evening packed so the service was slower than usual, but my 630 pm reservation for six turned into three hours and it shouldn't have. It took a long time for anything we ordered. Things were forgotten, we had to ask multiple times. Very disappointed in the tequila selection for a tex-mex place.

    We enjoyed most of the food and service was very good. But beef fajitas were burnt even though we wanted them medium well. And they were extremely salty. We sat in the patio. It was very quiet, but lacked ambiance. Overall it was a 3/5 experience.

    Our foods were delicious, server was extremely nice and kind. It was my daughter’s birthday and they showed us their traditional birthday celebration with crew. We did like it and had fun. Only thing is coronarita is 25 bucks and it’s quite expensive for a frozen margarita with 8oz beer. Nice experience in total. Thank you.

    The food was outstanding. I will definitely be going back. My complaints were minor. It was raining and I happened to sit underneath a leaky skylight but we moved the table 4-5 feet and everything was fine. My only other minor complaint was that I would have hoped that our server was a little more attentive after brining our food and beverages out. There were a few times where we needed something and I had to get up and find someone to help me. Once again, these were minor and I gave them 4 out of 5 on service. The atmosphere was great and the food, as I mentioned, was phenomenal. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want real authentic Mexican food.

    It was mother's day and we understand the kitchen was busy, but we didn't receive are drinks until 35 min after ordering them and we didn't order dinner until the drinks arrived. Food was cold and it was a disappointing experience. I felt that the waitress took a break.

    Wonderful traditional fare with delicious margaritas! The best thing about Guapo's that sets it apart from other Mexican restaurants is the ceviche menu. So many delicious options that make for a lighter meal -- no rice, beans, or cheese! Last night we tried the elote tamale for the first time, and it was delicious! We'll be back.

    The wait staff was very attentive when it came to asking if we needed more drinks, but it did seem like empty glasses, bottles would clutter up the table. It does get loud in there for birthday songs, but otherwise you could easily hold a conversation. I can't speak to the other food, but the guacamole, ceviche, and steak fajitas. The salsa tasted okay, but I found it to be a little too watery, they could probably puree the onions better to give it enough body to stick to a tortilla chip.
