This is my "go-to" restaurant whenever I visit. I have college kids and we go here every time I visit. Great food and service. They accommodate for gluten free as well. Love this restaurant!
Excellent foos and even better service. Loved the tablet town location. Even had gluten free options.
Great food and drinks with great service!
Have been going here since the 1980s. Great place to take the kids and now grandkids.
As always, the food, drinks and service were excellent. We love Guapo's!
we had a 7:30 res and still had to wait almost half an hour for our table which was really irritating. other than that though the food was excellent and the service is always great.
There was a bit Of a wait although we made a reservation. The food and service was perfect but the guests sitting behind us were super loud and overly dramatic during their conversation which made the dining experience somewhat unbearable.
Though they did attempt to serve everyone their food at the same time. The food on my plate was room temperature. The food was good though. They only allowed one check for a party of 17 and you could tell when they were about to close because they kept watching the table. Other than that good service with drinks.
Great experience! Food was awesome. We sat at the bar and received wonderful service! I highly recommend!
Nice, delicious and energetic atmosphere
It was a lovely time had by all at Guapo’s tonight. Our server, Mario, was excellent! Timely, welcoming, knowledgeable, and a fantastic sense of humor. The food was delectable!
Great true Mexican food. We are definitely going back
Guapos is always good!
Excellent! Very impressed with the quality of the meal
We love Guapos and go there all time - usually the Shirlington location. On Friday we had a 645 reservation for 8 at Tenleytown. The staff was great but they were clearly overbooked. We were sat at 715. They wedged the 8 of us into a table where we were nearly touching elbows with the adjacent table. So loud we could barely hear each other. Food was good overall as usual though it was tough to eat our fajitas because there just wasn’t enough room at the table. We will go back because food is great and staff is excellent; but probably during a less busy time.
The service staff was amazing! Our party consisted of adults and children . They made us all feel welcome. The food was delicious as well.
A return visit after a several year absence from being a many-year regular. Great food and great people! We miss you Guapos! (Sadly can’t fly in every week)
Always love this place!
Had a cute date! Margarita was a little strong, but it made me less nervous.
The best fajitas! Amazingly fresh tortillas and housemade salsa that is so fresh. Can’t go wrong. And they validate parking! Little high on price.
Service was outstanding — efficient and friendly. Outdoor seating is a great amenity; always a lively pedestrian scene to watch. Food is solid basic Tex-Mex, with very reasonable portion sizes. Margaritas are perfect.
Guacamole table side was great, margaritas were ok. Maduros were good too.
Great place to take the kids and not worry about anything.
The service was very slow and the meal was not exactly what was ordered, but when we spoke to the manager, he apologized and took care of the check.
We will be going back there as they were very caring about their patrons.
Everything was average. Nothing special about it.
Slow to take our order but the food was good and they were good about keeping water coming.
There were 13 of us celebrating a family get together with family from out of town following a 12:00 mass at St. Ann. Guapo’s was able to accommodate us by setting a number of tables together. The service was courteous and attentive. Everyone was very pleased with their food. The menu offers a wide variety.
Me encanta como el personal es tan amable con los clientes, he ido a Guapo's besthesda y Washington DC, la comida y el servicio es genial!
We love it!
As per usual - Guapo’s provides a wonderful meal, fresh guacamole and delicious margaritas once again. Our group of friends have been getting together at this Guapo’s since 1996, and we will hopefully being coming for the next 20+ years!
We weren’t told that big groups have to pay on the same check, and I had to talk to a manager to get them separated. The manager however was very polite. The food was good, but not worth the price of it. It was also very loud in there. Honestly it’s fine if you want to overpay for pretty decent Mexican food.
Fantastic today after many exceptional visits. The team here is extremely consistent!
Food and service were excellent but very smokey. Better ventilation would be good.
they didn't honor the open table reservation and the wait was over an hour, in which after I put in the reservation I never got contacted so we went somewhere else.
The hostesses were rude and incompetent. First one told us it would be five minutes while they waited for a table to be cleared. Twenty minutes later, one hostess (Jocelyn) us asked us what we were doing. When I said we'd be promised a table, she just said "no." I told her that another hostess had been helping us, but she said, "I'm in charge now." Then she added, we would have to wait another 45 minutes. We started to leave, but then we went on OpenTable and discovered that we could make reservations for 15 minutes later, so we stayed. Our food was good, but the table side guacamole we ordered never came and the waitress never apologized. We have been going to Guapo's for 20 years. We won't be going back for a long while.
Great food and great service. Try the homemade hot sauce, it’s a must!
Waitress Rivera was unbelievably rude, my chicken was so burnt and so loud. Brought a bunch of friends and we were so disappointed.
Good for hanging out with neighborhood friends. I like that they now have a ceviche menu. A word of caution : There were 8 of us having drinks together and the waitress could not keep track of who paid what.
The food and ambiance were excellent and the service exceeded excellent.
Impolite hostess but otherwise great experience.
