Due to COVID we ate outside in an igloo like clear tent with a heater, hardly anyone out there but the staff were attentive and the food delicious as always. It was January and probably one of the coldest nights of the year but the heater and tent worked great to keep us warm. Though we did keep our jackets on.

Not your basic taco kinda Mexican restaurant! Really upscale and interesting menu - both food and drinks. Amazing choice of different ceviche dishes! Everything was delicious. I can see why this place is so popular - will definitely be back!!

Our family went to celebrate my nephew’s birthday. We loved that the staff greeted us as we walked through the restaurant to our table. Our server was very attentive to detail (there were multiple orders to appease different palates - vegan, carnivore, vegetarian). Our orders came out perfectly! Everyone was happy with their meal. We will definitely visit again.

As usual we over ordered - but who could turn down such delicious food? The Shrimp with rice in that yummy sauce was a new treat to us - and of course the Plata Grande satisfied everyone. Brought newbies to Guapos and they can't wait to come back!

Celebrated my 30s birthday and reserved a group of 17 for brunch. I believe my waiters name was Diana, she was extremely attentive and always checked on us. Everyone’s food came out at around the same time, which is amazing service for a large group. No complaints of the food and service!

We went for Fathers Day brunch. It was a last minute decision and the Bethesda Guapos had openings…we had a delicious brunch. There were 7 of us and everyone enjoyed their meal…very generous portions and delicious. The churro French toast was a big hit with the younger generation. I enjoyed my huevos rancheros which were very good. The unlimited mimosas were constantly refilled too. A pleasant Fathers Day outing with lively music which tended to be a little too loud at times.

Wide variety of options on the menu & everyone in my group loved their dish. The wait staff didn’t hurry us, but that also meant that we sometimes had to flag them down to remind them about Some things we had ordered but had not yet received

This Guapo’s gave us an excellent experience during the pandemic. Our outdoor heater wasn’t working so they tried 3 different ones until they got one that worked. They are clean, safe, very careful, & as always, good food.

We were able to eat outside - for a hotel parking lot, they've done a good job of making it a pleasant experience - the heat lamps are helpful and the table spacing is perfect. If it's a bit cold, suggest bringing something to sit on, as the metal chairs can hold the cold!!! Food is absolutely wonderful - as always and the staff was cheerful and accommodating!

I had to come to town for medical appointments so we stopped in for dinner, great food at a great price! Usually we split meals because we don’t eat that much but we both ordered our own, Had plenty of leftovers. I got the pork tamales which was awesome; she got the chili relleno which was good too. The servers and management were very professional and prompt, everyone we interacted with from the hostess to the guy bussing the tables was in a good mood so great food with upbeat people. Can’t beat it!
