Pretty good Mexican food, decent service

I'm not a huge fan of Mexican food, but I had the fajita and enjoyed it very much. Wine not so good. I should have had the Margarita, I suppose. Noisy.

My daughter wanted to treat us to an anniversary dinner and wanted to try some place new for us. I suggested Mexican fare since we all enjoy that cuisine. Guapos was our choice, a convenient location that also provides a nice little lake for an after dinner stroll. We were greeted by friendly faces as we entered and given the... More

Great location at the Rio. Good food and wonderful service. We had fun! After dinner we were able to window shop and stroll around the lake.

The food was very delicious and well prepared. Service is typical. The location of this restaurant is right next to a charming little lake, with shopping and entertainment nearby. Being from California, I get cravings for Mexican food, and this place helped satisfy that (although I have found that no where else in the country is Mexican food made as... More

Our grand children always pick this restaurant for the birthday meals. It offers a festive environment with lots of parking nearby. If it is your birthday, you get to wear the large, fancy sombrero while the wait staff sings the birthday song. And the food is well prepared and consistently delicious. We have made happy memories at this restaurant. Only... More

When the weather is nice, grab a table outside during happy hour. Great margaritas. Food is decent, basically your run of the mill Mexican food.

I should say that I am from Texas, there is no Tex-Mex anywhere in the country like there is in Texas. Guapos is a nice place with a friendly atmosphere. It feels great to sit outside in a warm summer evening. Food was only ok, not bad but nothing worth ordering again either.

Dependable Mexican restaurant on this side of Gaithersburg. This has the best location of all the Guapo's in the Washington metro area. Happening atmosphere. Especially popular during weekends. Long waits. Tasty sizzling steak and quail fajitas. Prompt service.

Food is amazing and they allow you to cook to order. They are very child friendly and accomodate large parties. I love the enchiladas and corn arepas.

Excellent quality tex-mex. Particularly good are the fajitas and enchiladas, as well as the margaritas. Unlike other tex-mex restaurants, dishes are not exhuberant, so if sharing, you might end a little short. Sometimes is pretty crowded, particularly during Friday evenings and weekends. Be prepared to wait. The service though, is pretty fast.
