“Consistently good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Very good burritos, love the frozen margaritas and the salsa. They offer endless chips and salsa and the portions are huge; they also offer great service. The food and service are always consistent; we come here quite often and are never disappointed. They did seem to change the polo criolo (pardon my spelling), though; the flavor used to be scrumptious (and addictive); now I get a shredded beef burrito, which is also very good.

It does get really crowded, as do most of the restaurants in Shirlington, but if you get there early, no problem.

“Always Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This was our 3rd visit to Guapo's. While there is a long wait if you get there after 6 p.m., it is always worth it. There are always wait staff in the bar area to get you a margarita while you wait. The meals are great proportion and the service is always spot on.

Drinks just ok, cheap food ingredients but fun ambiance. There are much better Mexican restaurants around, but its a fun venue.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Ok! Love the restaurant...the service...and the food. My favorite is the seafood soup..omg wonderful broth with Two large shrimp, a mussel, and two large scallops. I always order a side of Mexican rice and dump it in the bowl and it's ooooh so good. Service is great too! Mmmm makes me want to go right now.
