I came here with my friends who lived in the area. We came early as I was told it will be line out the door after 6pm.

The food here was fabulous as was the service! We noticed it was the most filled restaurant in Shirlington which is why we decided to try it. The margaritas were delicious and I would say you would be satisfied with the house tequila, no reason to pay extra for top shelf. After one, you don't want to drive home! Food... More

Went with a large group from work. Service was outstanding. Food including appetizers was good and drinks were typical. Location is great and gets a lot of traffic.

I rally think that Guapo's is a good value with really solid Mexican food. I especially liked the breakfast there, but can recommend the restaurant for lunch and dinner too. Nice to sit at a table outside.

Out of all the restaurants in the DC/NoVA area, this is the one I always bring out of towners to. The food is just wonderful. The steak fajita will ruin you for any other restaurant's steak fajitas. If you're in the area you should definitely stop by.

The restaurant is not a typical Mexican restaurant, but the food is good. The rice and beans were excellent. Service was great and we visited on a crowded night. Fun atmosphere!

Recommended. We're back for our semi-annual Tex-Mex treat. For us, traveling internationally all the time, getting good Tex-Mex food overseas, if at all, is hard to do. This is one of two longstanding Tex-Mex chain restaurants in the D.C. area. The other great one is Uncle Julio's (formerly Rio Grande Cafe), also with multiple spots in the D.C. Metro area,... More
