Guapo’s is still operating with limited seating and a limited menu. The margaritas are still available and still excellent. So are the tacos. We had the asada and fish tacos and they were really good. Bottled water replaces the glasses and the menu is on your phone via qr scan. There are no specials at this time.

Guapo’s has been in Bethesda for a long time and I would like to see them continue to serve the community. Stop by and have a taco.

The food was good, the restaurant was super loud, music blasting out of the overhead speakers, making it impossible to truly enjoy our dinner. Could not eat outside due to weather and the inside was dark and loud. I even asked a waiter to turn down the music but they didn't do so. It was actually painfully loud. I will not go back.

I made a reservation for the Guapos location in Shirlington. The APP made the reservation for the Bethesda location without me changing anything. When we arrived at the Shirlington location, we were informed that this problem has been reported multiple times by the restaurant management and that Shirlington does not accept online reservations and should not even be an option in the app. We were unable to get a table and had to go somewhere else. Please fix the app!!!

Patio seating with a QR scan linked menu on tables. The menu needs to be worked on (it's clunky and incomplete) but the food was very good and service was friendly

I hadn't visited Guapos since it closed its downtown DC site. The food was tasty and the chips/salsa were outstanding. A bit noisy in the Bethesda location but almost full of diners. We stopped going to Uncle Julios in Bethesda because it became too pricy. Seems that Guapos has many of the same dishes for less. We'll try again and bring friends!

Thankfully we made reservations beforehand, and we were seated almost immediately. The restaurant was packed. Our waitress greeted us immediately, and brought us waters. However, she took some time to come back and take our drinks orders, which took forever to come out. However, they were packed so it was understandable. Our food came out fairly (the Al Pastor tacos were awesome!).

There were quite a few birthdays, and their birthday song got be a bit much after the 4th time. But other than that it was a great time. Would definitely go back.

We chose Guapo's because it was next to the hotel we were staying at and wanted a quick bite for lunch. It turned out to be VERY good. A lot of food for the price and authentically tasty. The Margarita's were especially good, particularly the Skinny Margarita. Not so sugary sweet. As we were in town for a Memorial Service, we didn't want to indulge in the Grande size, but enjoyed them so much, we ended up going back that night after dinner for a round of Grande's.

It was nice. The tamale elote was WAY too sweet, and I didn’t care for the shredded beef in the taco (would’ve preferred ground), but the chicken enchilada and the refried beans were pretty good. Great salsa and chips

We’ve been to other Guapo locations but for some reason the food here was really outstanding. A few drinks at the bar first since we got there early before our reservation. The room towards the back of the restaurant is not nearly as loud as the room. Service was very good. Public Parking is available right behind the restaurant with convenient back door entrance to the restaurant. Looking forward to going back.

It was nice but we went for a Fundraising event and the server didn’t know about it. We really don’t know if he credited our check to the fundraising event (St. Raphael’s School). Besides that, everything was excellent!

We love dinning at Guapo's when were are in town and entertaining guests. The food was excellent as usual. We had a group of almost 20 folks and was disappointed that our waiter and waitress "disappeared" for long periods of time. In addition, the space provided was not big enough to support that large of a group. We will love Guapo's and will return.

This was my first time visiting the Bethesda Guapo's. The food was excellent as always and arrived in a timely manner. What I did find to be distracting was the drumming during birthday celebrations. The singing did not bother me but the drumming was very loud and I could not hear other guests even though the celebration was a distance away. Overall, it was great. Thank you!

I've been to several Guapos and recommended this one to family. The decor and layout make this place feel cozy and fun. The ambiance and experience are better in the evening when the place is full and lights are low. Prices were high for lunch and the food was just ok. Meat was cooked perfectly,but rice was crunchy. Not what I remembered and there are lots of great places nearby.
