http://musictheory.net/ That website is the best I've ever come across. Nice looking, simple, and effective.

Go to the lessons drop down menu and start at the first one!

A good place to start would be to start learning how to read music. Mel Bay has their "purple books". Those are a great place for a beginner to start with any instrument. If not I'm sure any local music store will have a beginner's guitar book. Just try not to spend too much time looking up Stairway tabs and devote a good amount of time to learning how to read sheet music and chord charts. This should give you at least the opening steps towards learning theory.
