It was SO cold in there! We sat right next to the fountain so water splashed on the floor and my pants. The chips were cold and sauce didnt have any flavor. I got a beef quesadilla and taco and my hubby got a chicken quesadilla and steak soft taco. THOSE were good. The waitress had a little personality (... More

Don't be fooled by the lackluster exterior. The interior atmosphere is colorful, clean, and quaint. The food is excellent. Never had a bad meal here. My only complaints are the drinks are nothing special and the tortilla chips aren't always hot. Highly recommend this place.

Found this place on google looking for a close by Mexican place. It's a little worn inside, but clean. A lot of the table and seats have seen better days, but the service was fast and the food was good. Pricing was affordable. If I lived in the area I would be back. Although it looks a little dumpy from... More

Christmas Eve I was out with visiting family looking for a place to eat. Cruising down Hillsborough Avenue everything was closed until we spotted the lights on at the Guadalajara Mexican Restaurant! We were all very hungry and had soft tacos with yellow rice and beans! Fresh and delicious! The restaurant has a family-homey feel with bright tiles and a... More

We were looking for authentic Mexican. We really really hate chains, service was great. Reasonably priced. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

I love Mexican food, and my family and I have eaten in this particular Mexican restaurant several times before with no issues. However, the last time I was there will be my last time forever. I ordered a Chimichanga and my son ordered a Chile Relleno. Everything was fine until I had about an 2 inches left to eat of... More

We ate with friends who had been to Guadalajara a previous time. They had raved about it and so they took us there late on a rainy Saturday afternoon. We immediately felt welcomed. The young waitress was very helpful, and gave us great service. She started us off with complimentary chips and salsa as we read the extensive menu. We... More

The service was fine and the food was served timely. They provide only 1 FREE basket of chips, which are served cold and taste store bought. Lunch specials are 8.99 with rice and beans. I had a nice chicken enchilada and a Sope, Fried corn cup filled with beans and your choice of meat. I thought it was very bland.

We had different Enchiladas, chicken and Queso and they were all very good. My grandson had Nachos and it was a large portion and very good also. A lot of offerings on the menu and you can order complete dinners or single servings. Yes, It is not a very fancy restaurant, but the food was good and reasonably priced. Our... More

A couple of co-workers recommended this place. I went with them today, and it was very good. I got a crunchy taco and enchilada lunch combo. It wasn't the best taco I ever had, but still very good. Love the atmosphere in this place, good service, good food. Prices are reasonable too. I will definitely be back!
