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!

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
