Terrific Mexican Home Cooking

We ate with friends who had been to Guadalajara a previous time. They had raved about it and so they took us there late on a rainy Saturday afternoon. We immediately felt welcomed. The young waitress was very helpful, and gave us great service. She started us off with complimentary chips and salsa... read more

Christmas Eve I was out with visiting family looking for a place to eat. Cruising down Hillsborough Avenue everything was closed until we spotted the lights on at the Guadalajara Mexican Restaurant! We were all very hungry and had soft tacos with yellow rice and beans! Fresh and delicious! The restaurant has a family-homey feel with bright tiles and a... More

We were looking for authentic Mexican. We really really hate chains, service was great. Reasonably priced. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

I love Mexican food, and my family and I have eaten in this particular Mexican restaurant several times before with no issues. However, the last time I was there will be my last time forever. I ordered a Chimichanga and my son ordered a Chile Relleno. Everything was fine until I had about an 2 inches left to eat of... More

The service was fine and the food was served timely. They provide only 1 FREE basket of chips, which are served cold and taste store bought. Lunch specials are 8.99 with rice and beans. I had a nice chicken enchilada and a Sope, Fried corn cup filled with beans and your choice of meat. I thought it was very bland.

We had different Enchiladas, chicken and Queso and they were all very good. My grandson had Nachos and it was a large portion and very good also. A lot of offerings on the menu and you can order complete dinners or single servings. Yes, It is not a very fancy restaurant, but the food was good and reasonably priced. Our... More

A couple of co-workers recommended this place. I went with them today, and it was very good. I got a crunchy taco and enchilada lunch combo. It wasn't the best taco I ever had, but still very good. Love the atmosphere in this place, good service, good food. Prices are reasonable too. I will definitely be back!

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
