Good Mexican Food in Bethesda

Went for a lunch with a work group. I've been to other Guapo's in the area. Have a combo plate of enchiladas. Enjoyable time. Great service. Good food. Stay away from the chips & salsa --- they're addictive! Service: Good Food: Yum Bathrooms: Clean Parking: Paid lot & Paid street... read more

Great location with plenty of convenient parking close by. The restaurant is quite large with an entrance in front or from the rear which is where we entered and closest to the parking garage. We sat at a lovely table for two with a window looking out onto the bustling Wisconsin Ave street. Our wait or was quick and very... More

I recently came from Texas, so by comparison to what I am used to, I cannot give the highest rating to Guapo's. That said, the food is still tasty in an area I believe has a dearth of good Mexican.

My son and I went here for lunch, and we both ordered the chicken fajitas. We probably should've tried more variety, but we both were very impressed with what we ordered. They came with the usual accompaniments. They were prepared to perfection. I'm eager to go back and try other things on the menu. The service was excellent, unusually attentive.... More

All the food is homemade and fresh. They won an award for the best chips and salsa without entering the contest. Staff is everywhere waiting to attend to your every wish. We ordered vegan food which was easy for them. Guacamole the best I've had in the area. Drinks are pricy but worth it. There's a decent crowd here so... More

Steak fajita/ BBQ rib combo was very good, generous portion. Chicken enchiladas also very good. Chips were warm and crispy and the house Guapomole was fantastic. The standout this visit was the service - excellent on every level.

I've been here twice now for lunch and dinner. They bring an enormous bowl of free nachos (couldn't stop eating them - they are delicious!!!) and salsa. I've had their mixed ceviche with huge shrimp, fresh fish and nicely tart lime marinade. I also had their shrimp veracruz - again, huge shrimp very nicely cooked with onions and black beans... More

We ordered take out lunch for five people and were extremely let down by the quality of what we ate. The food was everything but authentic Mexican food. It was bland, tasteless, heavy, greasy and very cheap. One of the orders were chilaquiles, a traditional Mexican breakfast we are familiar with: the recipe was lacking the tomatillo sauce, a basic...
