Good is always hot and tasty! Service is always good and friendly. My husband and I have eaten here numerous times over the last three years. We have had Enchiladas, Ribs, Camarones el Diablo, Chili con Queso, Tamale Elote, everything we have tried has been good!

Went with a large party. Food was OK, as Mexican food far from Mexico goes, but not great. Setup with several long tables in parallel made interacting awkward -- didn't help the social aspects of the party. At least the tortilla chips were fresh and crisp.

This is where Tenleytown's hangs out. Come for cocktail hour. Come for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Unbelievable fajitas (my favorite is the steak fajita), seafood enchiladas like you can get nowhere else in the world. Appetizers of extra large shrimp and wonderful quesadillas (can be a meal). Huge, wonderful menu. And yes....the best Margarita you'll ever taste. Sangria's not bad... More

Great restaurant for large groups. The beef fajitas and cheese quesadillas were very tasty. The cooked plantains were to die for. The drinks including the margaritas where also good. The location is conveniently close to the metro.

We were in town for an event not far from here and, with the weather being unseasonably warm, decided to eat here on the patio. The food (we've lived in AZ) was decent - somewhat unique (flavors pleasant - just not quite we were used to). I had the seafood enchiladas, which were very good (could have used more scallops...

Guapo;s is a very typical American-Mexican restaurant, very popular with the students from nearby universities and schools for its large portions of standard offerings. I've been coming here for years and usually find it to be OK of its type. But the last meal I had there was dismal. I was with a relatively large group and while I realize... More

I had dinner with high school classmates (IPS '79) on Friday evening. It was absolutely delightful. Chips and salsa kept coming to the table -- would have been much better if the chips were not overcooked (almost burned). The salsa, though, was perfect -- just the right amount of kick. I ordered the masitas de puerco al horno. First of... More

Family visit for lunch on move in day for my son at AU. Good service, lighter/smaller choices for lunch. Homemade chips/salsa served complimentary when you're seated. This is a sit-down restaurant with table service and full bar. Pretty standard Tex/Mex. Enjoyed the seafood enchiladas and the vegetarian quesadillas.

Came here with a large party (about 30 people) after a frisbee game at Woodrow Wilson HS. The staff made space for us inside. The place is bigger than it looks from the outside. The service was slow initially since we kind of caught them off guard with this large crowd. Our waiter was patient and got us all our... More
