Absolutely dreadful. Average food. Overpriced... especially the drinks. Seriously deafening noise level with lots of screaming kids and no way to hear the person right next to you. And for some crazy reason the bar area was reserved for a children’s party. I doubt I’ll...More

The waiters are really nice, the decoration is so-so. The restaurant could be fairly noisy, especially when several people celebrate their birthday. The regular Mexican menu (burritos, meat, etc.) are excellent. The ceviche are also very nice tasteful but extremely spicy.

The food and service is delightful. The energy in the restaurant is upbeat and alive. I also appreciate the spaciousness on the second floor- it allows for intimacy. Would recommend!

We discovered Guapos on our last visit to Bethesda. We were the first in for lunch on Friday. The daily special carnitas tacos were full of flavor and hit the spot. The Tamale de elote was delicious and moist; the salsa made fresh on site....More
