Muy Bueno!

Best food on the planet! The cheese papusas are amazing as are the nachos and platanos. They also give a great military discount. Don't miss it if you're heading near the Potomac Mills Mall, it is on the ring road around the mall.

Guapo's doesn't impress you with fancy decor, or a hip bar scene, or even a bar for that matter. They just cook and serve the very best rotisserie chicken I have ever tasted. Sure, the make good Tex-Mex favorites too, but you go to Guapo's for the chicken or any dish made with it. Delicious is an understatement. And when... More

When we lived in the area, this was our go-to place for dinner. We love the chicken...and the enchiladas...and the carne asada tacos...and the yucca. And the "yellow" sauce...and the chile sauce! Oh and the flan!!! The flan there is one of my favorite desserts!!! Can't wait til the next time we're in town!

I've eaten here many times over the years and have always been impressed with the consistency, quality and flavor of the food - WOW! The chicken is nice, spicy, moist and delicious!! The beans and rice are also quite nice! Their green sauce is spicy and tasty and a great addition to spike up all the food that comes with... More

I love Guapos! I have eaten at the one here in Woodbridge an in Manassas! Both have great Peruvian chicken and although the Yuca is really tasty they could give you more than 4 pieces!!! Over the years I have seen their sides get smaller and smaller! Food great, portions suck!!! Will I go back? Yep... but my expectations are... More

Great Mexican food, hidden in a fast food restaurant. This really is well hidden between a number of fast food joints, but the food is good, freshly made, and very tasty.

Try the flame roasted chicken! All the platters are great. You won't be disappointed. This isn't "fine cuisine". But, instead, a moderate priced "family" place. Give it a try! I's near Potomac Mills shopping center. A great opportunity avoid the glitzy franchised restaurants that surround it.

Though it appears as a fast good place and the food comes quick, the quality is superb. We tried the southwest food which came with pinto beans and rice. The mango margarita was delicious. If you want quick home style (not from a can) southwest food, this is your place.

Food was great. Fresh and hot. Staff was very nice. Love the different sauces. Nice family place to eat. Can be a little noisy sometimes.

My sister in law took us here for lunch on our visit from Texas. We were wary being from Texas, but their Mexican was fairly good. It wasn't excellent, but it was really good! Great place for lunch. You order at the counter and pay and then it is brought out to you.
