My close by neighborhood restaurant that never disappoints. I love the chips, salsa, fajitas, guacamole, and margaritas every time. Always look forward to going back. The staff and service are all perfect!

We've gone to Guapo's for years. My spouse said the chili releno was the worst he'd ever had--it was crunchy. My enchiladas left a lot to be desired too. The sauces on them lacked flavor. Our wait person did a good job. It is always noisy in Guapo's.

Guapo's was hopping on Friday night - it's a good thing we had a reservation otherwise, it would have been a little bit of a wait. It had been a little while since I had been there. It was a great evening with perfect service, a nice energy in the restaurant, a new interior and, of course, great food. I'm a fan of Junior's sauce - a nicely spiced condiment - which also now comes with a side of Habanero sauce. It's a great pairing for enchiladas. Still love the chips, salsa and price point. A great option!

Delicious margaritas and fajitas! Also, chips and salsa very good. We had a nice table by the fire place which made my 94 year old father comfortable and warm on a chilly March evening. I have now eaten here 2 times and both times have been very good! Can't wait to go again.

8 adults 1 toddler and 1 baby all went on a Sunday around 5:00. Luckily it wasn’t too crowded yet and the room they put us in was nice and quiet. Service was great food typical Mexican but more reasonably priced than uncle Julio’s.

I have had two great experiences at Gaupo's, but this one was lackluster. The food was so-so, the fajitas plate would not sit flat and the waiter made a mistake with my order. I will give them another try - maybe this was just a fluke. The setting in the restaurant is very nice and the menu has great options.

Very fun for birthdays! The food was okay, good for families. We ordered a pitcher of sangria asked for less ice and it was not good. Full of ice and ruined the taste. I can’t have cold but request was ignored. We will go back but with hesitation. Really was fun!

It was a wonderful time at guapos. All staff were super friendly, if we had a question or concern they were quick to respond. I truly enjoyed the ceviche, one of the reasons I will go back...SO SO SO GOOD! My family had the steak fajitas and I had a quesadilla on the side. All were great, no complaints with the food. They made our table really feel special.

The portions are smaller than they used to be. The fajitas were an absolute joke. Enough meat, but only a quarter onion, a tiny strip of green onion, and one cherry tomato. That's it. Veggies are so cheap! For $20, you'd expect more veggies on it.

Like the Gaithersburg locations better, but thought with World Cup and it being father's day it would be slammed. They don't use open table and Bethesda does. Will wait it out in Gaithersburg next time.
