We’ve loved the guapos in shirlington, so when we found ourselves in Bethesda, we figured we would try it. Probably the WORST service I’ve received at a restaurant. It seemed they were staffed for a regular Sunday evening, not one where the Monday was a national holiday and it was packed. We were asked if we were ready to order twice before our appetizers arrived. When my main course came out, the rest of my family’s food wasn’t served until a full ten minutes later. There was no recognition of the awful service, or any offer to accommodate us in any way. What an embarrassment for Guapos.
Staff was great and very attentive even though it was a busy evening. The food is always good and my kids love to eat here. It can get a little noisy at times.
Guapo’s claims they don’t take reservations, and the hostesses had never heard of open table. You guys need to talk to each other, or take Guapo’s off your app.
Guano's is a family staple. We have been there too many times to count. The chips and margaritas are good. The taco salad, quesadillas, and enchiladas are favorites. One odd thing about our most recent visit---the restaurant seemed to be in the middle of a renovation. The top half of the walls was re-done. But the bottom half was mostly hardie board. It was odd. I'm not sure I've ever seen a restaurant operating partially finished. But the place was packed--so I guess they made the right move being open the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Overall, I say go to Guapos. Pro-tip: always sit in the front section (closest to Wisconsin Ave.), because the back area is weird and drafty.
Nice mexican resturant but Very Loud hard to have conversation with anyone hearing aid/issue without shouting... Fun for birthday or other celebration... nothing special about food average/good Tex-mexican
Though it was rainy and cold outside, it was worth the travel, I love Guapo's! The food was A-mazing, definitely what my friend I needed that night. And the service was really great for that time of night.
Can’t compare to Cactus Cantina or Rosa Mexicano. It was alright but will not go back! Margaritas were very weak, we ordered 3pitchers of Margaritas but weren’t good. If you are a Mexican restaurant you should know how to make Margarita. Best thing was Guacamole:)
Excellent food, generous portions, good margaritas.
Really hard to hear in the space but excellent food and service with great value
Our first time at this restaurant and it was very very good!
when we come back to DC we will eat here again!
