Guapos is a local chain with good margaritas, queso, and other tex-mex food! It has a great Happy Hour with $5 dollar margaritas and other appetizers. I usually get the guapos salad, fajitas and recently tried Chile Rellenos. The Chile Rellenos are my new favorite. For great service, with a friendly smile sit in the bar in Maria's section. She...

I'd eat here again if dragged, but wouldn't suggest it on my own. It's typical Tex Mex food. Nothing bad, but nothing great.

We love going to Guapo's as a family or as a couple. The servers are friendly, the food is good, and the margaritas are terrific. This is casual dining, a bit loud at times (not good for conversing with the grandmas), and always welcoming. We have never been disappointed and have gone here dozens of times when wanting a friendly... More

Great service, casual atmosphere and delicious food! The guacamole is fabulous, as was the tortilla chicken soup. The tres leches dessert was to die for.

I've been dining at Guapos with my family for more than a decade. The steak fajitas are so good here that I cannot order them anywhere else because I end up dissappointed. Homemade tortillas, wood smoked steak and chicken and real jalapenos... Guapos serves solid soul food. They also have a spicy salsa verde (you have to ask for it)... More

Imagine your elementary school's cafeteria wanted to transition into a Mexican food restaurant and that is what Guano's is like. The ingredients are low quality. Portions are large. Prices are good. Can accommodate large parties if needed. Nothing particularly special about this place. Service is hit or miss. Food does come out quick.

Honestly, I'm not the biggest fan of Mexican food but this place rocks! Everything is made fresh and I have never had a better Mexican meal in my life. I don't do spicy food so I just ask them to make my meal without spices and everything comes out hot fresh and delicious. There's an appetizer with shrimp in a... More

We live nearby so we carried out some salads but will not be doing it again. They were really very plain and very average!
