Typical resort restaurant...

Had dinner there on a Thursday night. The food was good but the service looked under-staffed. Our server got my order wrong and left us sitting way too long with empty beer glasses.

We went to this restaurant because it had more favorable than unfavorable TA reviews. We were seated immediately, which had us thinking this would be a pleasant experience. Three different servers walked by our table multiple times in the first 10 minutes we were there, all of them looking at us but none of them stopping at our table. That... More

The restaurant is located in a strip mall near the beach. The food was inexpensive and okay. The drinks are REALLY strong so be sure to have a driver. It took me 2 days to finish the one drink I ordered.

Impromptu dinner last night at Guadalajara with our group of 11. We got seated within 15 minutes on a busy night and split into 3 tables. Our server did not seem to like that we were split and made several negative comments. Chips and salsa were average as well as the margaritas. My combo dinner was good (guacamole tostada/beef tamale).... More

We showed up with 14 and will say they were very accommodating. We were in the bar and service was slow. But we SHOWED UP W/14. So you can't be mad at that. Food was decent and typical Mexican. Would eat there again for sure

Try the Poblno Shrimp, too good! Everything Ive tried is quite good and this place is where we always go when we want good, reasonable Mexican fare. Get there before 7p.m. and enjoy 2 for 1 margaritas and happy hour prices.

We love Mexican and eat it a lot. This food and service was nothing special, just so so. Probably will not go back. Even the flan was lackluster.

My spouse and I enjoyed both food and drink at Guadalajara. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. Very reasonably priced. Chicken and Beef Chimichangas were excellent. Fried ice cream very good! Margaritas were strong but very good.
