My wife and I stopped in for an early dinner. We skipped the appetizer and dessert, but our main dishes - Mariscos Saltados and Veggie Fajita were great. We'd definitely return. Their pico de galo and chips were great, as was their Guacamole. Also, the service that EVERYONE gave us was EXCELLENT!

My boyfriend raved about the pina coladas at Guapo's, so we went for dinner one night. I couldn't believe how good they really were — I have to agree with him that they're the best I've ever had, and by a long shot. They're very creamy and blended so finely that there aren't chunks of ice at the bottom of... More

Very festive atmosphere, lively decor, fairly good drink menu. Reasonably priced. Corn chips for salsa a bit thin, break easily upon dipping, Salsa very onion-y. Pleasant staff.

This place is a breath air amidst the more pretentious restaurants that make up most of Bethesda. I know Mexican food is not exactly Haut Cuisine, but everything here is fresh and everything is well prepared. Mostly, this is a genuinely HAPPY place. You can't come here in a foul mood and not leave feeling better. The service is consistently... More

Guapos is a local chain with good margaritas, queso, and other tex-mex food! It has a great Happy Hour with $5 dollar margaritas and other appetizers. I usually get the guapos salad, fajitas and recently tried Chile Rellenos. The Chile Rellenos are my new favorite. For great service, with a friendly smile sit in the bar in Maria's section. She...

I'd eat here again if dragged, but wouldn't suggest it on my own. It's typical Tex Mex food. Nothing bad, but nothing great.

We love going to Guapo's as a family or as a couple. The servers are friendly, the food is good, and the margaritas are terrific. This is casual dining, a bit loud at times (not good for conversing with the grandmas), and always welcoming. We have never been disappointed and have gone here dozens of times when wanting a friendly... More
