The drinks were delish!! the chicken mole enchiladas were just fabulous as well as the shrimp and mango tacos (Thursday special). Atmosphere was like you were in Mexico.

Let's start at the beginning, they have free off street parking which is a bonus in Old Town. The atmosphere including a great patio with roaming mariachi bands is wonderful. The margaritas are some of the best. The food is quite good. The staff is very attentive and efficient. A great dining experience at a reasonable price.

It is a typical mexican restaurant and it has a amazing food. I have been there once to have a lunch with my girlfriend and we were attended very well. Furthermore, there is a store beside it that sells mexican gifts.

Whenever my husband and I are in the San Diego area, Casa Guadalajara is a must stop. Why? They make the most awesome homemade flour tortillas. While your server will automatically bring chips and salsa to your table, ask for some of the flour tortillas and butter. They will arrive hot off the grill and taste like dessert. You can... More

Went to Old Town to find a really good Mexican restaurant. This wasn't it. Lovely patio but the food was nothing special. Good menu choices but the omelet was just OK and the tostado was also average. Chips served first were tasteless and overcooked. Service was slow and careless. Next time, we'll try elsewhere.

The atmosphere of a Mexican Hacienda didn't override a couple of major pitfalls. The restaurant was not overly busy as it was later in the evening. Got right in and seated. There were quite a few empty tables, however, the noise level was deafening. Maybe because it was late, the waiter was totally disinterested in taking our orders and serving... More

My husband quite enjoyed his meal but i have had better, more flavorful enchiladas. Went on Nov. 1st it was crazy busy. We were just 2 people so it didn't take as long to get in. I overheard others in large groups getting upset with being promised seats right away and it not happening. The large margaritas are huge!
