I went to a lunch buffet with a group of coworkers. The buffet had variety (e.g., tacos, fajitas, enchiladas, fruits) and was reasonably priced for all-that-you-can-eat. The food stations could have been refreshed more so that the food looked and tasted a little better, but I did fill up my stomach. I appreciated that dessert was included, and that made the lunch a better bargain. The server brought refills for our drinks as needed.

Guapos is an authentic Tex-Mex cuisine and decor. Large paintings of traditional Mexican scenery line the walls. A must try -is the - roasted half chicken-Pollo Criollo-and the fajitas. No self respecting Tex-Mex Restaurant would be without margaritas and Guapo's has a long list, along with several premium tequilas.

Okay, truth be told, this was always a "second choice" for us. When our first choice Bethesda Tex-Mex places like Rio Grande or Austin Grill had lines that snaked around seemingly as far as halfway to Texas, and that was just to get on a wait list where it is not uncommon for your 3-year old to be heading off to college when your buzzer finally buzzes, Guapos has always proven to be a snake-free, wait-free Plan B. It is right on Wisconsin Avenue, tucked into a hotel, and literally hiding in plain sight. Fortunately, you have quite a bit of neon (garish for some, atmospheric for others, but after tasting their food, might as well be your north star for which your restaurant compass is adjusted) leading you in the right direction.

The service, almost always excellent, adds to a very festive atmosphere. Incidentally, this restuarant has probably the best separate semi-private areas that can accommodate large groups, even parties. The food experience begins with the obligatory chips and salsa. The salsa is terrific. Heavy on the onion, just the way i like it. Alas, the chips are not the apparent off-spring of those fancy, front and center, and fun to watch chip making machine/factories found in places like Rio Grande, and in my view suffer because of it. Not as warm, or delicate, or delicous. But no matter. It is almost humanly impossible not to smother these "sub-par" chips with salsa, and before you know it, you've asked for several more bowls of chips before the main course arrives. Speaking of main courses, I am hardly a gourment of any type, and I rarely stray from the combination plates (burritos, tacos, enchiladas) or fajita platters, but I am always enormously satisfied after every meal. Out-of-town guest from places that know their Tex-Mex always give Guapos a passing (and usually an A) grade.

If you factor into your dining experience atmosphere and service and convenience, you simply cannot go wrong with Guapos.
