Delicious, fresh, authentic Mexican

My husband and I have eaten here several times. The food is consistently excellent, reasonably priced, and great service. We hate eating in chain restaurants.

I have been coming here for years with my family. A while ago the food was not good. Lately, the food & the service have improved considerably. However, & I know it's the market, but the prices are too high. The tacos al pastor where spot on. The guacamole was good but you'd expect a whole hell a lot more... More

Came here based on referral. Was not disappointed. Large menu with tons of choices. Lunch is easily under $10. Traditional fare and good service.

We have been coming here for a few years and it's a great restaurant. The food is consistently good and so is the service. Highly recommend!

Guadalajara is one of several very authentic Mexican restaurants in the South Dade area, and this one is in the heart of Pinecrest, right off of US1. Parking is not plentiful, and at dinner time there is usually a wait for a table, so I suggest you go early or during non-peak days/times. The food is always fresh and consistent.... More

I would recommend going before the dinner rush, caused us to wait longer for 2 plates to come out. The service was long and not so attentive. The food was very good (mexican plate) and i will come back when its not so busy.

We've been coming here for years. This place is a comfortable family favorite. The tables are usually full to near-full but it seems like we never have to wait. You can count on a family-friendly atmosphere, consistent food quality, affordable prices, ample portions and good service. The waiters typically refresh your beverage without your even having to ask.

The most authentic Mexican food in the Pinecrest area. Friendly waiter, owners. The food is fresh and very good. The enchiladas suizas are excellent and so are the fajitas. Great desserts also

Food approaches third star but really, when a party of four orders two each of two dinners, how can one meal be brought out fully 10 minutes after the other identical dish? Meals took a very long time to begin to arrive, and we got charged for the reorder of (not homemade) chips and salsa. By the time the last... More

After searching high and low for decent Tex Mex and/or Mex Mex in Miami I found Guadalajara in Pinecrest. The food is great! A mixture of Tex Mex and Mex Mex that is meaty, cheesy, spicy heaven. I have eaten here probably 6 times and have liked everything. The Super Nachos, Tacos al Pastor, Chile Rellenos, and ALL of the... More
