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.

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 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.

It was super delicious. The meals come with chips and salsa but only one basket is complimentary the next well cost you.... More
