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

This restaurant is always busy, but don't let that deter your trip. They have speedy service and GREAT food! It's such a fun vibrant atmosphere and the servers all treat their guests as family. Highly recommend!!

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.

Read all the reviews before coming....was very excited because we thought we were in for a real treat. Our service was lacking....food was very bland particularly the rice (dry with NO flavor) and the chicken...very very dry. The chips and salsa were the only good things we ate. I ordered a Blue Moonlight Margarita...it was pretty but tasted watered down... More

Hubby and I love mexican food but are traveling from out of state. Used this app and found this restaurant. The service was exceptional, with the guys all helping each other out. I asked the waiter about vegetarian selection and he made suggestion that was phenomenal. Wish we lived closer!

We chose this restaurant because it was rated #3 of over 250 restaurants in Redding. The food here is the bland Americanized stuff you can get in any town. If this is #3 in Redding, my advice is to bypass Redding.
