Don't buy packaged tortillas ever again! Making your own is fun, easy, and tastes so much better.


Get ready for a "good-looking" dining experience.

On Monday, El Guapo’s Tequila + Tacos opens at 8950 University Ave., Ste. 105.

El Guapo's is the latest restaurant concept from the creators of Aposto, Gusto Pizza Company and Juniper Moon.

The new eatery showcases a modern tequila bar featuring more than 50 tequilas, distinct tequila and margarita creations, tequila tasting flights, a variety of Mexican

and domestic beer and a mouthwatering taco experience with housemade tortillas.

From tacos and quesadillas to sopes and churros, the menu complements El Guapo's full line of specialty cocktails such as Guapo’s Margarita, the Smokey Seco and El Mulo (Mexican Mule).

The dining room at El Guapo's evokes elements of Dia de Los Muertos and embodies an upscale Mexican style, tradition and history. "El Guapo" translates to "The Handsome One" in Spanish.

With nine televisions featuring NFL Sunday Ticket and soccer matches, the bar and colorful sugar skull installation make El Guapo’s West Des Moines a one-of-a-kind tequila and taco bar.

The public is invited to help celebrate El Guapo's grand opening on Dia de Los Muertos on Nov. 1 with a live mariachi band and drink specials for those in Day of the Dead (Dia de Los Muertos) costumes.

El Guapo’s is family-friendly and will be offering a full brunch menu on Saturday and Sunday starting mid-November from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
