We loved the outside seating. I had shrimp enchiladas, my husband had chili rellanos. The food was excellent, served charmingly. A little expensive.

The chips and salsa very fresh and the pulled pork flautas were fabulous! They were topped with very fresh tomatoes and greens. The wait staff was very friendly. Great lunch!

Very good huevos rancheros, but DO NOT order the chicken, waffles and poppers. What a joke! Frozen poppers and chicken coupled with an underdone waffle. Shame! This could've been a lovely entree!

Here's my review: The good news is it's on a busy street corner. The bad news is, well, you get the idea. There's not much to be done about the bus stop out front or the weed-surrounded dilapidated tractor next door, but faster and more attentive service would help to distract customers. The beer menu is lengthy and several are offered in pint drafts, more would be better. Chips and salsa are complimentary but the cheesy one is oddly reminiscent of velveeta and picante sauce. Entrees were colorful and flavorful and food is generally good. The biggest challenge for Huapango's is the street corner location and the best remedy would seem to be service that is louder and faster than the street.
