Great Tex Mex! Celiac friendly

This is great Tex-Mex but I wouldn't say authentic Mexican food. The place was clean and the food was on time, hot, and tasty.

The food was good, the staff was very friendly and prompt and they even have a decent Buffett if you want to go that route. Overall not bad... Have been many times :)

More often than not, Mexican restaurants offer the same fare. No exception here, but the food was quite good. Portions were generous, service was good and the kitchen was fast. It was too fast. We didn't have time to enjoy our "rita" and dip before the meals showed. On "Bob's" 1-10 scale, an 8.

Very inexpensive, good food. Authentic Mexican cuisine (which means that there are few choices for vegetarians). Seems popular with the locals which is a good sign. Drinks are very cheap too.

Guadalajara Mexican Restaurant is a staple favorite of my friends and family. My favorite dishes are the Tortilla Soup and the Stuffed Avocado. Wait staff are friendly and attentive.

Good food, proportions, price, chips and salsa. My enchiladas de camorones was excellent just enough, and the refried beans good with little lard. It was a little noisy, and warm for a new building with a/c. But I wasn't sweating or anything. The service was very good, always there with water, extra chips and salsa.

I've had better Mexican food, but it was good and we enjoyed it. The staff was very nice and efficient. They were pretty fast with our food, also! That's a plus when you are hungry!

Stopped for lunch on way to Houston - food was good, no problem with gluten-free for the celiac in our group. Margarita was good too!
