We had worked up big appetites exploring Lassen National Park so we wanted a good dinner in an informal atmosphere. Guadalajara fit the bill. I had a great margarita and the pre- dinner chips and salsa were excellent. I ordered a combo plate with a tamale and taco which was excellent. Marna had a beef tostada and enjoyed it very... More

We ate dinner here. We are from Southern California an have several good Mexican restaurants near us. It is always difficult going out of state and eating Mexican food because it doesn't hold a candle to ours. We LOVED Guadalajara! It is such a cute place, bright colorful tables and chairs with beautiful light fixtures throughout. The service was beyond... More

Followed Trip Advisor reviews to this restaurant. Folks were right about the relleno: Excellent, authentic. Guacamole, too. Fresh and subtle. Enchilada, tacos, chips, tortillas, salsa were OK for Northern California but not up to best Texas standards. Top Shelf Margarita was lemonade. We'd go back for the relleno and guacamole though. Fun decor. Friendly hostess.

We chose this restaurant based on tripadvisor recommendations and were not disappointed. The food and service were both very good. This colorful restaurant is somewhat small and we were glad we came early. By the time we left the waiting area was full. This restaurant is a great find and we will definitely come back again.

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant. My family and I used to go here all the time when we lived in Redding. I have had Mexican food in Texas and other parts of the country and nothing has compared to this one. Food is always hot and fresh and the waitstaff work hard to take good care of their customers.

I went here for supper! Another patron recommended the chile relleno and enchilada and extra salsa!! This was the best chile relleno I have ever had, a very light breading so you could taste that wonderful chile, the chicken enchilada with verde sauce was perfectly spiced. The salsa and chips were fresh and exactly the way I like them. The... More

We selected this restaurant because of its outstanding ratings. The place was easy to find. It is beautifully decorated with nice furniture. The staff is very helpful and explained the menu items. My enchiladas were just perfect and tasted really great. They serve cinamon crackers and sweet flans for desert. You have to try this when you like sweeties. I... More
