The Mexican food was good and even though the restaurant was crowded, it was fairly quick. Our server was friendly and checked on us often. my only negative comment is that the room was so loud it was impossible to have a conversation across the table.

Food was great. Restaurant tends to be very noisy when there are more than a few customers. Very little sound absorbing material to moderate the loud conversations.

This one is not to be missed if in the area and although fronting from a hotel it is not part of the hotel. The steaming plates add to the experience. The prices were good and they moved us in quickly even on the weekend.

This is the best Mexican restaurant in the DC area. They do a superb job in every way and all of their food is fresh. We've had four or five dinners for our clients there, usually for 15 people and they do a fantastic job of taking care of us. You won't be sorry you went to this very reasonably... More

On our annual Easter eve stay in Bethesda md before services on Sunday at the national cathedral we planned on visiting maggies only to find it had closed in February.

I dine at Guapos on a regular basis and have done so for years. All of a sudden, over the course of the past few weeks, their portion sizes have shrunk--frozen Margaritas no longer over brimming the glass; quacamole now a virtually useless tiny garnish on the side of my entrée; charges for a few shreds of extra cheese.

Fast service & friendly staff. Tortilla chips & salsa serve while we look over our menu. Restaurant right next to our hotel. Pretty good mango margita. The cerieve mixto was ok, like the tamal de elote. Guapo's plato grande is good enough for 2pp but not 3pp. The baby back rib is tender, love the shrimp wrap in bacon.

I suppose it's typical Bethesda pricing. The food is good and reliable, have gone there many times and never has bad service. A tad bit overpriced though. Great happy hour though!

I LOVE Guapos in Bethesda. The staff is always friendly and inviting.The food is authentic Mexican and the portions are so generous that I always have plenty leftover to take home! The ceviche is always fresh and delicious and be sure to try the spicy green sauce!! It will knock your socks off! The margaritas are powerful so pace yourself......;-)
