Always happy to go – This place is super popular for a reason (and by popular, it really does get busy. don't go Friday nights! Unless you like crowds and lines)
Food is great, and it's always a lively place to go. Citysearch already has 20 reviews of the place, most of them positive, and for good reason.
The one thing I would say, though, is don't exaggerate your expectations, which I think is often the case for newcomers to the place. The place is good, but it's not GREAT... but most of the time, good is, well, pretty good.
Great service, cheerful ambiance, well-prepared food – Have eaten here twice in the last few months. Each time, I was awed by the friendliness and promptness of the service. Pleasant cheerful music was playing but it was not too noisy. Everything I have ordered has been very tasty and well-prepared. I usually tend toward the less fattening and more healthy entrees but the chips were too good to pass-up. I love this restaurant and plan to go back soon. I live in the neighborhood.
Best Mexican Food – I always enjoy our dining experience at Guadalajara. Food is always tasty. The presenation is excellent. Prices are reasonable. And the staff is excellent! Meridith is delightful! The atmosphere is pleasant. Not Loud!!!
Great Happy Hour and Staff – The salsa is great, I could have eaten bowls of it. Also the food was delicious I would recomemnd trying out the new menu they have just installed. The new item is cerviche and its delious. The happy hour is new as well and is from three to seven. They have mango mojotos , pomogrante mojitos, original, and mixed berry, margeritas are on happy hour and beers. The atmoshpere during happy hour is fun but it can get crowded during the dinner rush. The bartenders and very nice and make good company.
Vermin on the freaking table! – I am NOT kidding. We got up and walked out, after showing the waitress the 6 legged crawling vermin And it wasn't an "outside" R-word either, like Texas has, it was a 3/4" inside R-word, like the kind a place has when there's an infestation. Disgusting.
Great, but busy on Friday nights – We visited there on a Friday and it took a long time to get a table for 2 adults and a kid. But the margaritas kept us happy and once we got seated our service was geat and the food was excellent.
I recommend reservations on Friday nights
B-Day Party event that should have been held someplace else – Going for a B-Day celebration our experience did not match our expectations. It took a LONG time to get our drinks and they were rather bland. Rita's were weak and not very tasty. The food was dry and below average tasting. As with most places there was an automatic gratuity with our party but at 18% it was a joke. Based on the service of the staff they did not earn that amount and made off like bandits. This experience makes it easy when choosing to go back or not. There are plenty of other places in town that deserve peoples attention.
Editorial Review – An extensive Mexican menu complements the south-of-the-border flair at this bustling eatery.
MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM – Im Canadian, took me awhile to adjust to the huge number of Mexican Restaurants to try. Also took a while for my taste buds to adjust. They dont have 'real' Tex Mex in the great white north. After ying, Lupe's, Pappasitos and a bunch of other's we found Guadalajara....we hardly ever have to wait, the Marguaritas are perfect, love the Pacifico shrimp...they are HUGE!! All this and a great value too...gotta love it!!
Dessert's a must too! – Best darn Three Milk cake in the whole universe. Be prepared to take most it home though. It's a huge slice of heaven.
The "Rita's" are killer too!
