Monster Coktel De Cameron

The mariscos here are many, and the Coktel De Cameron (large) is absolutely huge and chock full of fresh shrimp. Very tasty! And the Chile Relleno, cheese, a la carte, is very good as well.

This was a wonderful stop and we love to go each time thru El Centro. Staff super friendly and helpful and the food is fantastic. Only downside is the parking many times we have left because we couldn't find a place to park!

I ate a quick dinner here late one evening. The service was very good. The waitress recommended a certain dish (I told her I was in a bit of a rush and not terribly hungry). The food came quickly and was excellent. It is hard to judge a restaurant on only one quick meal, but this place seemed OK

The atmosphere was nice. Lots of people and family. They had good food and then they even had a Charro sing that was very entertaining. He sang really good and added to the charm of the restaurant and the food. We had lots of fun.

This place is great.... The food is great. Prices are excellent and service was perfect. We are new to the area and were looking for a good, authentic Mexican restaurant and this one fit the bill. Highly recommend eating here.

Without any restaurant recommendations from my hotel, I drove around El Centro and happened upon the Guadalajara Restaurant and decided to give it a try. A lovely waitress guided this Mexican food neophyte through the menu and I decided on the shrimp tacos which came with all the trimmings and were delightfully tasteful. An ample glass of wine accompanied this... More

We stayed in Calexico over the weekend. While there's very little do to in Imperial, El Centrol and Calexico, some of the restaurants there are surprisingly good. Guadalajara Restaurant has a nice range of Mexican offerings, particularly seafood dishes. I had shrimp tacos and they were really fresh, there were ample portions, and were delicious. There was live music while... More
