We visited so we could mark this restaurant off our "places to eat bucket list". It would be a place we would return to if in the area. Their lunch buffet was very good. A pretty good selection and home made tortillas made as you enter the line. Very friendly serving staff.

This is a nice restaurant with good ambiance, a good value buffet and friendly staff. The young woman at the front of the beffet making fresh tortillas by hand is a big plus. The reasonably priced buffet has sauteed and fried shrimp,crawfish, quesadillas, crisp fried fish, salad bar, and other fresh items. We did not eat off of the regular... More

We've visited a number of times since our last review......... and in the interim visited other friend's "favorites". Those favorites don't compare to Guadalajara - still the same friendly waiters, great top shelf Margaritas and delicious plentiful portions of food. Go, try it and enjoy yourselves. We have never tried their periodic buffet but stick to a well rounded menu.

Took a chance in spite of the reviews. The Guadalajara plate was plentiful. The food was fresh. The cheese enchiladas were made with American cheese like my Mamma's. Good TexMex.

My husband and I went for an appetizer and a couple of margs. We ordered nachos that were very bland. The margs were just ok. The service was also just ok.

This restaurant is nothing to write home about. We tried the recommended buffet and were completely disappointed. The sausa for the chips looked like it was made with watered down ketchup with a few onions and Serrano peppers. We do not plan to go back to this restaurant.

I used to eat here when I lived in Brenham about 12 years ago, so I was excited to go again when we were on vacation. I don't know if they changed owners or just their cook, but it was definetly NOT the same. The service was poor and the food was worse! It made me sad, but I don't... More

We used to go to Guadalajara years ago then moved away from the area. Returning recently, we tried the restaurant again and it has become 1 if not our favorite Mexican restaurant in town. Friendly service, great food and superb Margaritas make a good experience.

Eat here often and have NEVER had a bad meal or poor service. Food is traditional TexMex and freshly made. The service is prompt and the staff has been there for many years....always friendly and remember you as a frequent customer. Great Margaritas! Best Mexican food in town...
