The food is much better than the horrible On the Border. But it is horribly overpriced. 2 large margaritas are $20. The average entree is $16. Our bill for 2 with one drink each, quesadilla appetizer, and 2 meals was $72. Ridiculous. No more

Recommended. This restaurant chain has expanded over the last 15 years from a lone restaurant in Washington DC to several sprinkled around the Capitol beltway area. All are good. You can't go wrong at Guapos. They deliver a tremendous dining experience. If you're in town or traveling through looking for a little bit different dining experience in a similar dining... More

The plus side of our experience was their was no wait time and our party of 4 was seated right away. A server brought glasses of water and chips to our table. I had asked for straws and he threw 2 straws on the table and walked away. The waiter took our order. I ordered sangria which tasted like red... More

Very first time dining at Guapo’s this week for lunch and it was very good, definitely better than I expected. I will be visiting more often, especially since there is a location in Woodbridge….I hope it’s just as good.

I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food and the service. We stopped for appetizers so cannot speak to dinner or lunch. However, the appetizers were hot, plentiful and tasty. I would recommend this for a quick bite since it is quite loud at dinner, conversation was tough. Liked it though and would go again

My girlfriends and I decided to go for dinner to Guapos and I was excited to try a new place. I had visited the website to see what the menu looked like and I was very pleased with what I saw. It was a nice warm day so we decided to sit outside on the shaded patio. We were quickly... More

Typical mexican restaurant that has a mile long menu.Wish they had more restaurants like this in Canada. All our food was tasty and fresh. Good portions except for enchiladas which weirdly came only two per entree, used to getting three and they weren't oversized. Chicken Fajitas were very good, pico de gallo was mild but good. Other tables had the... More

The food and service are good. The menu offerings are what I'd expect to find at most Mexican places but the quality is a bit better. Service is attentive without being over the top. (this is observed over a few visits) The noise level is bad, however, It's pretty loud inside; if you live across the street as I do,... More
