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

I have been twice to Guadalajara and the food is good, not excellent, there are better places in Miami but ehat is really poor is the service. Waiters don't seem to be trained, serve too many tables or something but they don't bring water nor utensils. We had to actually beg for both of them. They don't have a process... More

Not very good, but I may be biased. Perhaps because I do not like all Mexican food I did not care very much for this place. It seems that the food is similar to Taco Bell's. I asked for "chiles en nogada" and the waitress had never heard of it. I should have known what to expect. Service was not... More

We are regulars at Guadalajara as we live nearby. Being creatures of habit we enjoy chicken burritos every time we go. Our kids on the other hand try something different each time - no complaints! Service has always been super-fast and efficient. Drinks, fresh chips, and salsa are delivered promptly. Refills for everything come as well. Yanina is our server... More

I was very pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. We stopped not knowing anything about it, but excited for burritos or nachos. We ended up getting full dinners and were very impressed. Lots of rich flavors. Expect to spend about $10 on appetizers or $15-20 on meals. Service was impeccable. Our waiter hustled faster than any server I've ever had. Food... More

This has to be the best, freshest family owned restaurant. Even though The seating is limited; it's worth it. Their customer is great and their take Out is fast. Big serving size satisfies the hungriest of appetites. Also serves Wine, beer and wine based margaritas.

I haven't been back to this place in about 10 years so wasn't sure if it was still good. Well I am happy to say that it's better than ever. Had a great waiter Armando. At least I think that's his name. Nice guy studying Chinese medicine. Anyway, great service and fabulous food. The chips and salsa were so good... More

We went there about a year ago - in our search for decent Mexican food (which seems hard to find in Miami!). The service was 'so-so', but the food was good. So then we came back with my parents, and the SERVICE WAS AWFUL, and the food was good - but nothing great enough to overcome the terrible service. My... More

The chicken fajitas, spinach enchilada and tamales were excellent! The beer was ice cold with chilled glasses and just perfect. Overall great and I'll be back.
