great food, service and reasonable prices

Margarita were perfect. Guapo salad with chicken tasty. Chimichanga enjoyed. Wait help was attentive and wanted to make sure our time was enjoyed. Prices were very reasonable. A nice and easy walk right near the DoubleTree. A perfect place for dinner or lunch. We would return and enjoy another... read more

After venturing uptown to Tenley Circle for over a decade to visit Guapos, it's wonderful to have a venue here in Bethesda. This is the place to go both for Margheritas and chips and queso at Happy Hour; but also for a classic TexMex meal. They do all the typical dishes very well, but my favorite is their Camarones Brochette... More

We dined here really just because it was the closest restaurant to the American Inn hotel. We were pleasantly surprised. The ambiance is nice, the service is fantastic and the food is pretty good too. The only drawback is that it gets very loud in there with the concrete walls and tile floors. I would definitely return if I was... More

I was served quickly. My food arrived insanely quickly. It was good, no complaints, but nothing spectacular. I'd go back.

My boyfriend and I took his mother here for mother's day. The food was absolutely amazing and they even had a mariachi band playing! We will definitely go back. The service was incredible, we felt so welcomed.

Large portions of tasty tex-mex food in relatively large rooms. Decoration a bit too classic, but you are there for the food more than anything else.

Came for business lunch. Chips were very greasy. Salsa was like tomato soup with some onions and beige tomatoes- very liquid and impossible to eat. We ordered queso dip- it came with different chips- they were thicker and almost stale. Cheese had no flavor- it was like melted Velveeta. I would not recommend the queso dip. We had enchiladas (chicken)-... More

This was one of my favorite places to go for happy hour! Their margaritas are strong, so pick a driver. My boyfriend and I would go there for dinner (Happy Hour lasts til 7 PM) and just order off the happy hour menu. With several margaritas and dinner, we still never paid more than $20 unless we were seriously celebrating.... More
