This is a Mexican restaurant with great variety and many unique dishes. Not just your burrito and taco joint. The chips were very good as was the salsa. I like that they also serve a plate of refried beans and slaw with the chips. They have a good beer selection. The food was terrific! I had the chicken en mole.... More

We sate in the bar with friends to have drinks and then dinner. The drinks were great and the service was very good. We also got chips and salsa while we had our drinks and during dinner. Once we ordered dinner, the plates came out quickly and were very hot and fresh. We all enjoyed our dinner and we had... More

We visited on Cinco de Mayo - we wanted to see what this restaurant was like on busy day. The service was OK but the food and drinks were really good.

This is a great little place. I like to eat lunch here solo and head to the bar as it is usually quiet and handy as well. Food is presented super fast and is tasty. Lunch special every day for $5 which I like a lot, sometimes I get one for there and one (or two) to go so I... More

I have been here many times now in the last few months. However, I have only ever had one thing. The pasta dish with shrimp. I love it, just not sure it is real Mexican food. My mother (whom usually eats out with me) tries something different every time. So far she has liked everything she has tried. Overall I... More

I love Guadalajara Grill and have for years. On my most recent trip we ate in the cantina/bar area. However I have also dined in the restaurant area numerous times too. On the recent trip two of us split the "Mexican Pizza" which is a lightly fried HUGE flour tortilla (I'd say 12-14 inches) covered with beans, tons of yummy... More

We visit here quite a bit. I crave their Shrimp in cream sauce with added jalapeño. The staff know us so well, we can say ' the usual' .. Which includes a Cadillac Margarita.. They have it out in no time and it is delicious with homemade tortillas...If you are looking for delicious food, and a quality drink...This is the... More

My first warning was the lack of a sign on the building. Fortunately, I spotted the restaurants' name in a jumble of other strip stores. My business partner had to pass the building twice in the dark before he found it. The atmosphere inside was poorly lit and while clean, it was well used. The menu was vinyl clad and... More

I am a regular patron of Guadalajara Grill in Salem Oregon and have tried most of the Mexican restaurants around town. Guadalajara definitely shines above the rest. There's a very full menu with all the favorites, but the food is just so much more flavorful than other local Mexican restaurants. Excellent tacos al pastor, pollo loco (similar to pollo al... More
