Like a lot of people, I've eaten in numerous Mexican restaurants, some good, some okay, and some bad. Gudadalajara (NOT Guabalajara!!) Mexican Restaurant at Panama City Beach has the best Mexican food I've ever had! The salsa was freshly prepared, mild and chunky with diced tomatoes, cilantro, etc. I do prefer salsa with a little bite to it, so I... More

Have only seen one of these in New Orleans. It was great. Both my husband and myself had vegetarian meals. They could not have been any better. Everything was fresh and hot. The... More

There weren't too many places around our hotel that offered something besides sea food or American food. We tried this restaurant one evening and weren't disappointed. The staff was nice and very accommodating. The food was also pretty good.

We decided to check this place out based on the recommendation of the owner of the condo where we are staying. It was quite good! The chips and salsa were tasty and crispy. The food didn't take overly long and came out hot. My kids both got american food and said it was good, so if you have some picky... More
