We believe a great dining experience begins with family. At our restaurants, we combine great atmosphere with friendly staff and quality food. We hope the efforts of our family-owned business reflect in the experience our guests have and make you feel right at home and part of our family.

The Rincon family arrived in Virginia in the late 1970’s. All four children graduated from Fairfax County schools and universities and continued to invest in their community. They believed that their businesses should provide opportunity and pride to demonstrate the dedication to their hometown and the metropolitan area. Now their children continue the same aspirations as their grandparents did when they arrived over 30 years ago.

The food was okay, it took forever to give it to us tho… we waited for about 40 minutes to get our food. They also got the wrong order to one of my friends. The drinks were super meh, we had skinny margaritas that barely had any alcohol, when I complained they said it’s because they are “skinny” but from any other place I’ve ordered skinny just means they don’t add sugar or use low calorie sweetener. Overall a very meh experience.

Location is great. Service was okay. We went for a family dinner on a Thursday. I heard that there would be live music from previous reviews. So, we requested to sit on the patio. The plaza right outside the restaurant was under construction (so the view wasn’t great) but was indeed playing live music. Typically, you might think the restaurant would turn off their music so you could hear the live music playing.. but the restaurant continued blaring its music and both were playing on top of each other and clashing. We could barely hear each other…Food was just okay.

We were on vacation and wanted to sit on the water. It was a nice place and food was good. The service was a little slow , however it could have been due to Covid.

Busy restaurant with hit or miss service — when the cheese and shrimp quesadillas arrived they were barely warm, the cheese was hard and the shrimp close to nonexistent. The chicken quesadillas were similarly disappointing. The drinks are less than average and taste watered down. On the other hand, my chef recommended dish was very good, tortilla chips are fresh and crisp and the salsa delicious. Great place to enjoy being near the water and people-watching but not a place for seriously great Tex-Mex cooking.

I normally eat at the Guapo’s in Shirlington (Arlington, VA) and was hoping for the same good food and service for brunch this Sunday morning. I encountered the opposite. First, there was no brunch though it was advertised to start at 11 am (my reservation time). The staff appeared not to want to work, nothing but sour faces. And, when my food arrived, the burrito contained an unexpected ingredient: a plastic ring used to seal a milk container (aka kitchen trash). No apology was forthcoming, just a new burrito brought to the table a mere few seconds later… Truly disappointed!

I’ve been to this restaurant twice and the service both times was not the best. Once we were seated it took about 10 mins just for the waitress to come and take our drink orders. During our stay she rarely checked to see if we needed anything. The food was pretty good but the service definitely needs some work.

Terrible host experience, fantastic server. Overall not worth the 30 extra minutes on top of my reservation and being forgotten about by the hostess and manager. Seemed Very unprofessional and not put together.

Normally this place is a great spot but this time I had such bad vibes. It was just me dining, I made a reservation. Arrived on time, hostess acted confused when I arrived like they were scrambling for a place to seat me, I asked to be sat outside, saw a clear table where they could’ve sat me and she proceeded to seat me inside. Who I assumed would be my waitress, dropped off some chips and salsa but was very rude. Barely wanted to speak when spoken too and just overall gave the vibe that I was bothering her. I ended up leaving and going to Bangkok Cafe nearby where I received excellent food and service. I guess guapos is a nice spot for a group but not solo diners.

food was very good but it was way, way, way too loud that it really took the enjoyment out of the evening. we had 4 people in our party and we could not hear each other talk. i asked if they could turn the music down a bit and they said not. the acoustics in the room are terrible and it was just very very noisy
