Really Good

This is a stand in line and order kind of place but the food is great and the menu extensive. You can't go wrong no matter what you order.

If you have kids and don't like extreme New Mexico spices, nothing wrong with Guadalajara Grill. If your looking for more authentic, would recommend other options.

Pretty good, but a little overpriced for fast-food style dining. In a pinch will eat again, but we spent $29 on 2 fajita dinners.

Authentic mexican food - in fact one of the employees barely spoke english but he sure did cook up some mean fajitas & tacos. You order at the window & they bring it to your table. Don't forget to order a wine margarita because they are to die for. I really liked that they had a cool little bar set... More

Low on atmosphere but good selection of Mexican dishes and everybody who works there is really nice. There is one on the North Side and the South Side, I frequent the Northside.

There are several banners posted in the restaurant promoting they won "Best of Taos." They don't say best for what, or who voted, etc. I have family that likes to go there, but I just don't get it. This is a Mexican food style restaurant, not to be confused with New Mexican food. A lot of the local immigrant Mexican... More

Been a regular hangout spot for a few years on the north side of town. Good food, and the service is always fast and top-notch.

We stopped at the nearby liquor store and asked the clerk for advice on good local food. He mentioned Guadalajara first, just down the street in a strip shopping center. It looked a little rough around the edges but we were looking for authentic. Boy, we got it. The majority of the customers appeared to be 'locals'. A two man... More

This is a local favorite. All the Northern New Mexico favorites plus tasty seafood dishes. Locally known as 'The Carwash'. Highly recommended!
