We really enjoyed dinner here. The house Margaritas were excellent size, taste, and did not skimp on the Tequila. The food was delicious and the service was excellent!

We walked in and were greeted with terrible looking tables and chairs. Booths looked worn out also. Food taste was below average. Drinks weren't good. We won't go back.

Love the food here. Good prices and delicious lunch buffet. I also enjoy there chili relleno. My wife always orders their Half Super Tostado which is a meal in itself. Highly recommended for all occasions.

Our favorite was closed for the night, so the couple we were with (they were driving) brought us here. Food was very good. Waiter command of English was average bad. Maybe a bit pricy, but perhaps not to you. We had a bottle of wine too. Nice building inside.

Another excellent and economical eating place in Escondido. Great service, great variety and superb ambience - real Mexican. Enjoy a beer with your dinner, or from the smorgasborg.

Took my lady to Mi Guadalajara yesterday for Mother's Day Mimosa Brunch. We got there about 845am (the brunch started at 9am), and there were already 75 people outside waiting!
