Guapo's - Fair Lakes
The Rincon family arrived in Virginia in the late 1970’s. All four children graduated from Fairfax county schools and universities and continued to invest in their community. They believed that their businesses should provide opportunity and pride to demonstrate the dedication to their hometown and the metropolitan area. Now their children continue the same aspirations as their grandparents did when they arrived over 30 years ago.

Great place to celebrate special occasions with friends and family. Great fodd and excellent service
We have been eating at Guapo's since it opened and have NEVER been disappointed in any part of the experience.
Chicken Tamale ordered - little to no shredded chicken and the tamales were soggy.
Rice was plain tasting.
Margaritas tasted like lime aid
Beautiful location though.
I eat here about every other month. I think they have fantastic food. The only problem is that I frequently feel rushed, though not by the primary server. This restaurant thrives on their quick turn-over rate. It's remarkable how quickly the food gets to the table. The primary server (Layne) was terrific. The secondary servers that clean the table of plates, etc. however are grabbing plates, reaching across other guests when giving/getting plates instead of serving you right beside you. No joke...I had just picked up a tortilla chip from the basket and was dipping it in the salsa, and one of the guys took the rest of the chips and the salsa away. Recap: food, reception, and primary server excellent; secondary servers kind of annoying.
Guapos continues to provide great customer service. The food is always good and the resturant is run well. It does get crowded so, get a reservation if you can. Always consitant with food and service.
It was a nice dinner, would go back for something casual
Guapo's was great and was easy to set up a reservation online. Raul was amazing very kind, helpful, and on top of everything. Definitely would like to have him serve us whenever we go to Guapo's in the future.
Not sure what happened tonight but service was the worst. I waited 15 min to get my drink, no one came to bring more chips and the food took forever to come out. We one here all of the time but tonight it was not good.
Plenty of thin, crispy totilla chips to munch on and a very nice fresh salsa to accompany; the drinks menu is varied and there are plenty of appetizers to share. The Mexican fare is rather bland, with the Fajitas being the star of our selections. The service was friendly and attentive!
Guapo's at Fair Lakes is an excellent family restaurant. The food is always fresh, homemade tortillas, and they never stint on serving you a meal with all the trimmings like guacamole, sour cream, etc. with every meal. Their fajitas are a bargain and you can order for one. Sunday Brunch menu is also a crowd pleaser. Unless you do a reservation, be prepared to wait a bit around dinner time. But it is worth a wait,
We all enjoyed our dinner. Service was fast, efficient, and friendly. My parents come here often and really like Guapos.
We've been going to Guapos for years, primarily at the Shirlington location. Our 9 year old son LOVES Guapos. We now prefer the Fairfax location, which is better ventilated and has very similar but also different and interesting drink and food options options. We also love Christian who was a server at Shirlington but moved to Fairfax. He provides excellent service! We are big fans!
Consistent excellent service and food. Our favorite Mexican restaurant!
Sat is before our reservation time and the food was great! Will be back again for sure.
The sound level was high, but we had a great meal. Monica was an excellent member of your wait staff.
Amazing service and food as always. One of my favorites in Northern Virginia! Definitely worth it to make a reservation on Open Table. This place gets packed quick! Awesome margaritas!
Went there for a Fathers lunch, fantastic food, great service. Overall a great experience . Would definitely recommend
Although we had a reservation, via Open Table, we still waited 30 minutes for our table. The place was busy, but it seems that our reservation was worthless.
Not consistent with the last time we had dinner there. The service left almost as much to be desired as the food.
This was our first time at the Fairfax Guapos. We'd liked the Guapos in Shirlington (which, in the past, we visited weekly) and may like this one even more! Nice ambiance, a bit more modern, excellent service. If you go, try to sit at one of Christian's tables! He's been our favorite server since my now 9 year old was a toddler, and he's now at Fairfax!
Some of the best Mexican food you can find. The food is flavorful and authentic. Family friendly but also great for dates or girls night out. Margaritas are delicious. The staff is attentive and FAST!
Service is awesome! Great servers with great customer service !!
Best margaritas around in a fun atmosphere. Extremely great customer service; wait staff is superb. Food is good too!
As always, Fantastic in every way!
We had a very nice dinner for my wife’s birthday. The food and the service was just great. My family loves Guapos!!
As always guapos has great service, and their margaritas are outstanding and the staff is very friendly and courteous
Nice food and service. We had a group of 7 and they handled without a flaw. Thank you!
Absolutely amazing place! The food is top notch and the best waiters (Johnny and Angel). The food was tasty and the service was prompt. 5 stars is not enough to accurately describe this place.
Mother’s Day can be a crazy time to go out. Guapo’s was busy, but we were seated quickly. Although our waiter took longer than usual the food and the service was great. Guapo’s never dissapoints.
A little loud.
Seated us one minute before our reservation time which was awesome. Food came out great and the service was attentive and quick. We'll be back for sure!
Good family restaurant; something for kids and adults they will like and plenty loud
Managed to get a table using open table an hour before the time. Great welcome when we arrived and were seated in less than 5 mins. Great service. Food delicious although portions seemed small for dinner.
I was brushed off by a poorly trained hostess. I had reservations online and had a confirmation emal but was told that there was nothing under my name. No matter how busy a restaurant is, customer comes first. If they had closed reservations, how was I able to make one and get a confirmation email? There was no attempt to accomodate us at all. Not going back there again.
Good for families. If you're going for a birthday, you may have to remind them a few times.
Attended on Cinco de Mayo and loved the food and drinks. It was packed with an outdoor live band and drinks and food. Very energetic bar scene. Our appetizer, food and drinks came out quickly. The service was exceptional.
The food and drinks were very good, but it was so noisy which made it difficult to talk to table mates.
great place to celebrate my husbands birhday. the kids loved it.
We absolutely LOVE Guapo's! To us, it's the BEST authentic Mexican restaurant in our area and then some! They always take care of us and make us feel like family! The food is always delicious and NEVER disappoints us. We will be back for sure!
Took a friend for her birthday and had a great time! The server was excellent and the food was delicious. Also drinks are amazing!
