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.

Cinco de Mayo. They were very busy and clearly overwhelmed (understandable on one of their busiest days of the year)

Guapos is THE best Mexican restaurant in town and the Tenleytown location is fantastic. Inside or outside seating is good; the staff is efficient, nice and responsive. They keep busy with all the tables filled. The chips and dip are a meal in themselves, but don't miss the best fajitas in town! Guapos is one of the best thinks about living in AU Park.

The food was alright, margaritas were good when we could get them. Anytime we needed anything we had to have someone chase down our server. She forgot our drinks multiple times. Overall was just an ok experience filled with excuses

The service was perfect. I’m not too impressed with Mexican food choices in this area, but Guapos is consistent and the service is top notch. It makes for an overall good dining experience. One note is that the receptionists did not log in my open table reservation. Its irritating to have to have that done.

Everything was great except for the straw situation. The cardboard straws are awesome for water. But I can’t drink a frozen margarita with one.

We had dinner on a Friday evening and noise level was high as this restaurant is a popular spot. I ordered the chicken and beef enchilada platter which included rice and refried beans. It was very good. The other member of my party ordered a small seafood dish but thought it was too salty. The Mexican dishes are quite delicious. Service is friendly and professional.

Met a colleague at Guapo's for dinner on a Thursday night. On entering the establishment, I was immediately impressed with the crowd, the evident mix of clients eager for the experience, and the warm authenticity of the decor. The staff was gracious and efficient to get us seated and comfortable. The food was outstanding. Attentive wait staff kept us appointed with drinks and any extras we sought (sauces). What a terrific eating place run by someone who knows how to motivate and deliver a very pleasant dining experience.

The food is always great, and the service for our party of 9 was impeccable. We were in the upper room, which I believe is reserved for large parties. The noise level was deafening, partly because this is where they put the families with children. Be warned. I love Guapo's and have for years.
