4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2014 NEW credit card Amex Card Member Review

We've been going to Guapo's since they opened their first location in NW DC. They branched out to Bethesda many years ago, in a motel (sort of). We went on a recent Saturday evening and the place was jumping. Lots of families and groups of friends. Noisy nut not raucous. We like the standards. Chicken and meat are cooked so... More

I have leaved in Bethesda for over thirty years. I can't pass by Guapo's without going to have a meal inside. I love their Carne Asada Fajitas. It's a whole 10 oz. skirt steak cooked on their wonderful mesquite grill. I would rather have their steak than anyone elses' in town. And make sure to ask for Hector. He is... More

Did not know what to expect of this Mexican restaurant a bit outside of city center, but found was pleasantly surprised. Relaxed atmosphere, appeared to be local crowd, family friendly, with excellent food and attentive service. Don't hesitate to stop in if you are passing by and in the mood for Mexican cuisine.

This is genuinely mediocre food. Try Cactus Cantina on Wisconsin Avenue or Rio Grande in Bethesda before trying Guapo's. Friendly environment and service, but cannot compensate for the mediocre kitchen. Sorry….

Good Mexican food, fun atmosphere. We particularly enjoyed the guacamole and enchiladas verdes, but the food at the next table (a large family) looked very appealing as well.

The Tex Mex food here is not bad. But just to SoCal/Texas good. Portions are smaller than expected. But the taste was ok. Friendly/Lively Environment

I have been here several times. Most of the times for their happy hours, delicious frozen margaritas! Their ceviche is also good and the steak with potatoes also from the happy hour menu. The rest of the happy hour menu is very greasy. Table side guacamole is excellent. As are their chips and salsa. I have ordered some stuff of... More

I have been to this restaurant three times previously and was excellent. So thought on this visit we would have a great meal. Service was only average, food on the greasy side. Price of food very good and the portions on the large size. Best part of this meal were the corn chips and salsa at the beginning! Maybe just... More
