We believe a great dining experience begins with family. At our restaurants, we combine great atmosphere with friendly staff and quality food. We hope the efforts of our family-owned business reflect in the experience our guests have and make you feel right at home and part of our family.

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.

Food was good, not outstanding but what I would expect. Service was terrible. Every time someone came to our table, it was a different person. It’s as if they couldn’t figure out who our server was. We were forgotten for a while and it took a long time to get the check, presumably because they couldn’t figure out what we ordered...

This was our first time to eat at Guapo's, and we really enjoyed it. The food was excellent, and the choices were varied. The service was excellent as well. I will certainly return.

My husband and I were visiting Washington, DC and had dinner there on November 14th. The location is great. There is an outdoor ice skating rink right outside and it was beautiful. The service was exceptional. We had a couple margaritas ( Happy Hour from 4:00-7:00!), and we had chips and salsa along with scrumptious queso for an appetizer. We had a steak and chicken fajita and had sopapillas for dessert. The food was fantastic. Our waitress was great, super friendly. We will definitely visit again! A+

Higher class look for the same great product. I love the Guapo’s in Arlington, but G’town is a nicer ambiance with the same killer food. Great food, great service and fabulous staff taking care of us. I can’t wait to do it again when I’m in town.

Guapo’s of Georgetown has a lively atmosphere and great outdoor patio seating. The host (Marta?) went out of her way to make sure we were happy. Excellent service. Food was ok but not great. I’d go back to try something else. Fajitas are good. The coctel de camarón is NOT recommended.

We went here for Sunday brunch, expecting an experience similar to the deliciousness of the Guapo’s in Tenleytown. Alas, either the formula has been tweaked for tourists or this restaurant just doesn’t have its act together yet.
For starters, the layout was weird and the music was too loud. The chips were good but the salsa was kind of thin and flavorless. We were given many regular menus but only one brunch menu to share among 6 people. And when the food came (after a very long wait), the dishes seemed uneven.
The breakfast tacos as a rule were the best things we ordered. The breakfast burritos were passable. But the huevos rancheros were served on two crispy corn tortillas with black beans in between and then smothered in a viscous sauce that was in no way spicy. Yuck.
It’s too bad, bc we normally love Guapo’s food, and this location on the georgetown waterfront could be awesome.

House-made flour tortillas were delicious. I had a happy hour margarita and it was very good as well. My husband and I enjoyed our dinners. We ate outside. There were a lot of birds flying in and out of the dining area, so be forewarned. The outside dining was a bit noisy. The staff was friendly and helpful.

This was my first time at Guapo’s and everything was great. The food was fresh, the cocktails were awesome (according to others at the table because I don’t drink), and the service was excellent. I will definitely return.

My husband and I ate lunch here at around 2pm on a Monday. We were started off with complimentary tortilla chips, thin as wafers and delicious. The two salsas served with them were also so good, chunky tomatoes and a great black bean salsa. I had an Ultima Palabra cocktail and absolutely loved it, smoky and sweet and chilled beautifully. The fish tacos were so yummy and the hot sauces were absolutely flavorful. Service was excellent, friendly and knowledgeable and quick. I would definitely come back.

We were pleasantly surprised. We were afraid it might be touristy, but food was very good, portions were large and you could taste the alcohol in the margueritas. We will go again.
