The Guadalajara Fiesta Grill was a total loss in a fire in late July 2014. Advise for rebuilding: the facility was great! I can do without the "make salsa at your table", as most salsas do better with time for flavors to meld and I find the process intrusive to my dining experience.

Really unremarkable meal. Salsa tasted like tomato and black pepper, no other flavors, no depth. Guacamole tasteless. The green enchiladas were good, that's about it. Just another mediocre Mexican joint, over-decorated "festive" interior. The old "Chi Chi's" was better than this place.

We got there early and didn't look busy but place was nice size. We sat outside and was perfect. I open yelp and check in and got free appetizer. Don't remember the fancy name for it. But was a $8 cheese quesadilla, good thing it was free. Now the salsa idea they have it cool. A lady comes with a... More

Went her for lunch while visiting my son in Tucson. I ordered the reasonably priced Lobster Enchilada lunch special (it was a Thursday) and they were delicious! The wait staff was friendly & attentive. The décor was authentic Tucson/ Mexican and the atmosphere was pleasant. Had a great lunch and will definitely go back next time I visit Tucson!

Absolutely love this salsa! And they definitely don't charge extra for the salsa unless you don't order food. And if you want more, they will come by and make more for you. The helpings are large and good enough for two leftover meals. Definitely recommend this place for some great salsa, drinks, and food!

Our son recommended the chili verde /chili Colorado. Very good chunks of tender stew meat. They advertise salsa made at table but not for lunch. Guacamole tasted average not like it was made from fresh avocados. The real issue here is the server who was having a bad day because some one quit and he had to pick up the... More

As a regular visitor to Guadalajara Grill in Tucson, Arizona on Kolb Road (twice a week) I was very disappointed to be charged an additional $5.00 for salsa. We had just tip the waitress for making us salsa and very little salsa I may say. Twelve chips later the salsa we tip the waitress was gone. My wife paid the... More

Finding good Mexican cuisine in Tucson is not difficult. Finding good presentation, friendly waitstaff, authentic music performed live, and a fun environment (either inside or outside) easily exceeds expectations.
