Guapo's started small many years ago and grew only slightly. It is a popular, low-key Mexican restaurant with a full menu of basic staples of a Mexican-American restaurant. The food is fresh and well-prepared. The atmosphere is a bit noisy due to birthday parties and groups of friends enjoying themselves. Over the years, it has maintained consistent quality.

I discovered this restaurant some years ago when staying in Bethesda on business alone. I walked up Wisconsin looking in windows and found Guapo's full of early diners. I wasn't that hungry but decided to go in and have a drink. Initial thoughts were this place looks very plain and basic with simple furniture. But I sat and placed an... More

One of my colleagues suggested this place, and I wasn't quite sure about it when we walked in. It's not that appealing from the decor. As always though don't judge a book by its cover. The veggie burritos were stunning & the margaritas were the best. The staff were nice & it was the best meal during my stay in... More

Not really expecting much, this Mexican restaurant is much larger on the inside, and the lunch burrito bowl was delicious and inexpensive. (The bowl essentially contained the stuff normally in a burrito but without the bread wrapping.) The steak was mid-rare, flavorful and tender. Service was attentive and great as well.

We had a nice family dinner here. It was very noisy but the host graciously seated us away from noise for which we were most appreciatlve. The food was good. So was the service.

Good food, great service, can get a little loud - so if you're looking for quiet romance - this is not the place. However, if you are looking to relax, have a good time, chat with friends and have a great meal....go for it !!!
