The fish tacos and chimichangas were just fantastic! Oh, and the beer was cold and the staff were quite friendly. This is a walk-up cafe.

This is a sit-down restaurant but without waiters. You order from the counter. Food came very quickly and was very good.

If you don't care about "ambiance" but are good and hungry for some excellent Tex-Mex, go here! You have to order at a window from a menu on the wall, but it comes pretty quickly and their chips, salsa, chili relleno, enchiladas and rice and beans are some of the best we've ever eaten...and we are Texans who eat a...

We live in southern CO & periodically drive down to Taos for the day. When we do, we eat at locally-owned Guadalajara Grill. They have 2 locations in the Taos area- 1 on the N side & 1 on the S side. We've always eaten at the 1 on the S side, but they're both the same food-wise. You walk... More

It is a cafeteria....but this is real authentic mexican food. Clean. Perfect. Don't let the fact that it doesn't look upscale throw you. If you want authentic for good price this is 5 stars. Came here from CO looking for the real deal and weren't disappointed.

The food is great quality and tasted like real deal Mexican. The wait to order was a bit long, as the waiter at the counter takes the order and the money but is also the bartender. This caused the line to grow unneccesarily. The wait is worth it, but they could do better if they had a dedicated order taker... More

The competition is tough in Taos, but if what you want is just good New Mexican food without paying extra for ambiance this is what you were looking for. The place is hard to spot from the road, so slow down when you get close. There is lots of parking for your RV and plenty of seating inside. There is... More

Every dish looks to have an over abundance of onions. It seems to be the main ingredient for many of their dishes. They do a brisk business. If you don't mind standing in line to order your food, go for it.

The Guadalajara Grill offers the most authentic Mexican food I have tried. My cousin, a native Taos resident, let me know there is New Mexican food and Mexican food. This place is Mexican. They have the best fish tacos anywhere. Also, available are peppers to have with your order. This place is a must go for the real deal. The... More

I've been to this location of the Guadalajara Grill several times and have even brought out-of-town guests here. The service is always fast, even when the place is packed. (Diners order at the counter, then are given a number to place on their table. Staff brings the freshly prepared food to the table.) I do like the decor better at... More
