Open Christmas day, great food!

I have eaten in many mexican restaurants. Their food was great. We had one member with multilpe food allergies in our party - and I appreciated their attention to detail.

Delicious Food, great service, at such a steal of a price! My fiance and I are avid Mexican foodies and love to try new places. Guadalajara will always be our go to, everything we have tried is delicious!

The food we ordered from the lunch menu was prepared in a timely manner, the server did not smile much but she was very polite however and everything tasted great. Like Mexican food always does. The atmosphere is nice and the place was empty, so we had the restaurant to ourselves (group of 8) all meals were fresh and everyone... More

What's worse... The old, clammy atmosphere that has clearly seen better days or the food, not authentic or worth the price.. The interior reminds me of an old Pizza Hut. Faded paint, dirty chipped floor tiles and uncleaned windows. The service was just alright. I had the beef tacos. Absolutely no flavor and poor quality meat. The chips were cold... More

We should've known when we walked in & were seated in 3 different sections in 15 minutes that somthing wasn't right with this place. We were moved from the... More

We went to an early dinner with family on a Friday night. Hubby ordered the dry burrito with chicken. It came with a salad, refried beans and yellow rice. He loved it and took home half of his burrito. His only complaint was that it wasn't totally heated through and through--it was kind of warm on the inside of the... More

Guadalajara Mexican Restaurant service is not great and the food is very expensive for Mexican. I was with my family and none of us had a great meal.

Out of the five adults, one enjoyed her meal of chimichanga, one totally disliked his order of chicken enchilada's found to be greasy, with an off flavor and appearance. 2 orders of pork carnitas not up to standard with pieces of overly dried strands of pork and a chicken salad that...

I'm a Tampa native and have been too Guadalajara about 20 times. It's either pretty good or very good. I've never had a bad meal here. This time I had the lunch pork sopas with rice and beans. It was super delicious. The meals come with chips and salsa but only one basket is complimentary the next well cost you.... More

We saw this place while leaving Tampa on our way to Ocala and thought we'd give it a try. It was a quiet afternoon with only a few customers around. Service was nevertheless very slow. Took forever to get chips and salsa (after our order was taken) and they have some weird rule about limiting the amount of chips and... More
