Eaten here a couple of times and each time found the food underwhelming (a friend picked this place). I have to say that the service is fine, prompt but not overly friendly or welcoming.

We have been here several times. This visit was a birthday celebration. As always, the food was delicious, and plentiful. You could easily share a plate, with your mate. The chili rellanos, shrimp tacos, and the nachos, we added carnitas, were all fabulous! Just like the food, the adult beverages, are just as good. The wait staff are excellent. Very... More

The service, atmosphere, and food were always worth waiting for, but not so much after the move. The quality and flavor has not given us a reason to continue eating here. On the up-side we discovered El Tapatio to give us a destination for Mexican food in town.

Food was very good and service was excellent. I recomend this restaurant for it's variety of mexican food selections and the greeting by the owner who is very enthusastic about his place.

The service is always good if not great. But the food has taken such a noise dive! Before they moved into their current location, everything was great, spicy, and full of flavor. Now I can make better Mexican food at home. If you want good Mexican, go to any of the taquerias in the area and definitely skip this place.

We used to go to Guadalajara grill when it was a small restaurant in the same shopping center and LOVED it! Food was great authentic and priced great. We have tried the "new" big restaurant many times over the years and have always left wishing the food was better and priced in line with the portion size and quality. We... More

If you need a Tex/Mex "fix", eat in, don't take out (gets cold fast). Food is just ok, but place can be fun when its real busy. Good for a family Mexican meal. Good quantities and decent salsa and chips.

Same old menu and not well done. The food is bland and boring. There are a lot of good Mexican restaurants in the area - but this is not one of them.

Saw it on google, read some reviews and decided to try. Even with lots of families and full dining areas, noise level not that bad. Good, swift servers and most items you would find in this style restaurant. Complimentary chips not salty, but thin and crispy good corn flavor; salsa hot and flavorful. Ordered taco salad--so much food that I... More

Fun & Friendly atmosphere, with good food too. A "go to" neighborhood standby and one of my favorites. We don't eat out very often, but this is one of our first choices when we do.
