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

The food, the service, staff, cleanliness of this restaurant was great! I've gone to the one in Gaithersburg as well when I have visited in the past.

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

Great service, casual atmosphere and delicious food! The guacamole is fabulous, as was the tortilla chicken soup. The tres leches dessert was to die for.

I've been dining at Guapos with my family for more than a decade. The steak fajitas are so good here that I cannot order them anywhere else because I end up dissappointed. Homemade tortillas, wood smoked steak and chicken and real jalapenos... Guapos serves solid soul food. They also have a spicy salsa verde (you have to ask for it)... More
