    Server was great. Food was great. Ambiance was awesome. Ordered an appy for food, tastes unreal, but took 45 minutes to arrive. We wanted more food but had somewhere to be and based on the appy taking that long obviously made us not want to wait any longer.

    Overall our experience was very good. We were disappointed that we couldn’t get some type of coffee beverage after we ate but we’d still go there again.

    My friend and I ordered carve asada tacos to share and the menu didn’t state pineapples were a topping. After biting into my taco and realizing pineapple was in it I was told the server should have “told” me they added it and I asked for 2 of them that were mine to be replaced. They replaced them (took awhile but that’s ok they’re busy I get it) but then tried charging me an additional $12 for the two little tacos that that they replaced. Don’t understand why I’m being charged…server said it’s because they didn’t “take the taco back” but I would have happily given them to her if she had asked. Anyway, pass next time

    Food was good, but the kitchen ran out of most of it's supply. So we didn't get alot to choose from when we wanted to order. The cocktail menu isn't that great either. Not sure if I'll be back.

    Love El Guapo. The food has never failed me. Service is always disinterested but when the bill comes they are always your best friend. Best burgers in town in my opinion.

    They gave us the worst ubicación at the place, a hidden table, we ask so many time the host to move is to another tables that were empty, she always told us an excuse in a bad mood, the server try to charge us with drinks we didn’t order! Not a nice experience

    Wow!!! What a great Cinco de Mayo celebration! I love this place any day of the week, but tonight blew me away. They know how to have a great time while providing amazing hospitality. Food was out of this world as always and drinks were next level. Thank you el Guapo staff for making our day! I’ll be back every chance I get!

    Service was very slow. Ordered nachos, which took over a half hour to get. Host came to the table shortly after we received our food to remind us a 30 min warning before we had to give up our table. We couldn't wait to pay the bill, and leave.

    We wanted to take advantage of a happy hour and food prior to a hockey game. We hadn't tried here before but became aware after reading about upcoming promotions in May. We made a reservation for 4:30 and arrived a little prior. We were quickly seated and our drink orders were taken. The atmosphere was kind of blue collar and there was no vibe of anything but laid back and fun. The nachos were the best we have had with the cheese sauce that was on them. The same with our burgers, cooked to perfection and very tasty. As the time progressed the place became increasingly busy, but the servers never lost us in the crowd and checked at regular intervals to see how we were doing. We interacted with several of the staff and it was all the same, friendly and genuinely appeared to enjoy helping us to a positive experience all the way around. Most definately will be back soon. If you want are looking for great service, food and a fun place to hang out, don't go any further than here.

    We had been here a few years ago and it seems to have changed. It is perhaps the worst Mexican food we’ve had. Very disappointing. There’s a lot better available in Vancouver. The location and service was very good.
