My family and I have celebrated many birthdays here. We always visit when we are in the area. The food is terrific and the atmosphere fun. It's a great family restaurant.

Not high concept or fancy in any way, but really good quality Mexican food. The steak fajitas were excellent with a large margarita. The menu is pretty much the standard American version of Mexican food but the quality is a bit better then most in the area. A good option for dining with friends that have kids.

The portions are big, there is no room for dessert. WE had enchiladas and they were nice made, I love the beans and the chips with salsa, crispy and fresh. The Guacamole was nice as well.

Been here 8 years ago and their food quality and consistency has remained the same. Outstanding food and service should be their motto. The wait staff is attentive and ever accommodating, although the dining area is a little loud it reflects their homey environment. A must eat in Bethesda.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Guapo's. We had a last minute event that we decided to do at our office, and they was able to accommodate us. The food arrived on time, the food was fresh and hot. Everyone in our office LOVED IT! We defiantly will be ordering here again for future events. The management... More

It's a cute restaurant and I love Mexican and Tex-Mex food. I had heard of Guapos (and read the reviews) so I went in with high hopes. Unfortunately, the food just isn't that good. It was rather bland in fact. The salsa is packed with onions as if they are trying to make up for lack of flavor otherwise. I... More

I have been loyal to Guapo's since I discovered it 20 years ago while in college in DC. The salsa is so delicious I could eat a bowl of it as a meal. The service is always fast and the portions are generous. Try the seafood burrito or fajitas. I agree with other reviewers that it can be noisy.

The atmosphere was okay. It was very loud inside which made it difficult for me to talk with the person I am was having dinner with. The staff were very friendly and the attentive, our drinks were always full. I ordered the chicken chimichanga and as I was cutting the second bite my fork hit something hard. It turned out... More

I read reviews on lots of the area dining options. I can agree with lots of what others say about Guapo's. This is a solid Americanized version of Mexican food and delivers what we expect but nothing special. Food was hot and tasty. The service was attentive and fast. The margarita was tasty, huge, and strong. Definitely felt that one.... More

Atmosphere was great, very busy and friendly staff. We ordered chili con queso and it was velveeta cheese. Also ordered burrito with shredded beef and steak burrito. A lot of food, flavors were mild but not Tex mex or Mexican. Margaritas were good.
