We stumbled upon Guadalajara after reading some Yelp reviews. the food was delicious and a great value! Loved the decor! Lots of character, colorful, and very Mexican feel. Loved the dangling ceiling lights! Customer service was excellent and the chips were hot and yummy! I had the veggie fajitas and they were superb! We'll definitely come back here again.

We visited this restaurant with 14 of our friends after Church one Sunday. The waiter was efficient in taking our orders and in delivering them. The food was very good and the prices were reasonable. Nothing out of the ordinary, though. Parking is a little tight. Would recommend you get there before the crowds.

I was on business in the area and this restaurant was on the recommended list from the hotel. They have a nice menu selection. We ordered the fajitas for 2 with steak, chicken and shrimp for $24. It was a bargain and very good. There was a lot of food for $24. The restaurant was busy, which may be why... More

I had their chile rellleno with green sauce and it was one of the best I've ever had. However, all of their food is delicious. Can't go wrong.

... when you try to time your trip north or south on I-5 to hit Redding at meal-time! I have eaten at Guadalajara Mexican Restaurant now 5-6 times, always on the road between Sacramento and somewhere north (Ashland, Weed, etc.) and have never failed to enjoy the experience. The service is attentive and friendly, and they humor me when I... More

Enchilada with chile verde outstanding as was the chile rellano. Pork tamale, however, was a disappointment as were the traditional pre- meal chips and salsa. Authentic atmosphere that was hot and noisy.

Although some previous diners complained about the attitudes of wait staff, our waiters were pleasant, cheerful, and alert. (The owner was present.) Although some previous diners praised the food as providing an outstanding example of California Mexican cuisine, our food was rather mediocre -- edible certainly, but not special in any way.
