This was my first time visiting the Bethesda Guapo's. The food was excellent as always and arrived in a timely manner. What I did find to be distracting was the drumming during birthday celebrations. The singing did not bother me but the drumming was very loud and I could not hear other guests even though the celebration was a distance away. Overall, it was great. Thank you!

I've been to several Guapos and recommended this one to family. The decor and layout make this place feel cozy and fun. The ambiance and experience are better in the evening when the place is full and lights are low. Prices were high for lunch and the food was just ok. Meat was cooked perfectly,but rice was crunchy. Not what I remembered and there are lots of great places nearby.

Best fajitas in town. Consistently.

Could use a few more veggies (onion, peppers) but otherwise excellent. Wait staff are efficient too.

GREAT FOOD. Good service. Wait staff tried clearing husband's dish several times, although he wasn't done and the rush had died down. NOISE LEVEL WAY TOO LOUD. Please install baffles!!!

Guapo’s is always good- we’ve been going here for years and have also had them cater graduation and other events at our home. Fajitas are terrific and the service is reliably good.

We've gone to Guapo's for years. My spouse said the chili releno was the worst he'd ever had--it was crunchy. My enchiladas left a lot to be desired too. The sauces on them lacked flavor. Our wait person did a good job. It is always noisy in Guapo's.

Positive experience here. Margaritas are excellent and the food is great. Definitely priced around average for Bethesda. The portions are large, so the bang-for-buck ration is really good.

Will definitely come again.

Guapo's was hopping on Friday night - it's a good thing we had a reservation otherwise, it would have been a little bit of a wait. It had been a little while since I had been there. It was a great evening with perfect service, a nice energy in the restaurant, a new interior and, of course, great food. I'm a fan of Junior's sauce - a nicely spiced condiment - which also now comes with a side of Habanero sauce. It's a great pairing for enchiladas. Still love the chips, salsa and price point. A great option!

Delicious margaritas and fajitas! Also, chips and salsa very good. We had a nice table by the fire place which made my 94 year old father comfortable and warm on a chilly March evening. I have now eaten here 2 times and both times have been very good! Can't wait to go again.

8 adults 1 toddler and 1 baby all went on a Sunday around 5:00. Luckily it wasn’t too crowded yet and the room they put us in was nice and quiet. Service was great food typical Mexican but more reasonably priced than uncle Julio’s.

I have had two great experiences at Gaupo's, but this one was lackluster. The food was so-so, the fajitas plate would not sit flat and the waiter made a mistake with my order. I will give them another try - maybe this was just a fluke. The setting in the restaurant is very nice and the menu has great options.
