Traveling in the D.C. area and needed a late-night dining option. Guapo's is located in a charming little retail enclave and stays open past 10. I had the chicken tamales, which were fantastic. My beau had a chicken burrito. Both were accompanied by good yellow rice and refried beans, guacamole, pivotal de gallo and sour cream. The meals were quite... More

Started dinner off with drinks (Grande Sangarita, Coronas, and Dos Equis. We asked for an order of Guacamole (not that special). The entrees were very good! Tacos Oaxaquenos, Masitas de Puerco (YUM), Carmarones Broche and a Beef Chimichanga. This was a very nice meal and fun time. Definitely will come back, delicious.

The food here is decent but doesn't make up for the lack of service. On more than one occasion, the host/hostess has been extremely rude. When a friend asked to speak to a manager, the host said no. There are way better Mexican restaurants in this area that offer better food and great service.

We are from Texas and know Mexican food. What a surprise to find a Mexican food restaurant away from home that was excellent! Big portions and great margaritas! Our server Wilian Aud L was great and very attentive. We will be back.

Being unfamiliar with Arlington and DC, we found this gem from a recommendation from the hotel we were staying in. We were brought the customary chips w/salsa. The salsa is the best I've ever tasted...freshly made. I ordered the two enchiladas (1 cheese 1 shredded beef). They definitely give you your money's worth. Lots of food and it is excellent....

Wow. This place is awesome. We shared the steak & chicken fajitas and a mushroom quesadilla. The fajitas come with a butter sauce that turns them from great to awesome. The steak was perfectly cooked. The mushroom quesadilla may be the best tasting quesadilla I've ever had. The portions are huge - we never finish sharing two dishes here. Go... More

This is an awesome Mexican restaurant in Shirlington Va. The frozen margaritas are large and have a nice little kick to them. The chips and salsa are fresh and bottomless. I had a chicken dish that was packed with chicken, beans, and rice. It had cheese and sour cream on top. It was cooked perfectly. Everyone in our party said... More
