Another great meal

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.

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

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...

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

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 meal next time in Bethesda.

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.
