This place is convenient if you are on the beach, but food is average at best. I love homemade salsa, but their salsa is right out of the can and it is cheap. Not the worst Mexican food I have ever eaten, but there are better in the Panama City area.

So all the places I had planned to go for Mexican food were closed, either due to the time of year or the day (Sunday) so this place was open and we decided to try it. Soooo glad the other places were closed, this place was exactly what I was looking for. The servings were a good size and the... More

Pretty decent Mexican. Food was about average Mexican. But was hot and fast and service was great. Decent bar and margarita.

Best Mexican food on the beach. We come here several times per year and this is at the top of our list every time.

If you can't get authentic Tex-Mex cuisine, this is a good substitute for your fix. The Guadalajara Plate is HUGE! It's also very tasty (spicy, so beware). Their Chalupa Plate is crispy and tasty also. Very good service, easy to find, and clean throughout. Next time we're back in PCB, we'll be sure to stop there.

Stopped in for dinner since you can rarely go wrong with Mexican food. This place is like most others. Avg prices and avg food. Not much to praise or complain about. Service was ok but not spectacular same as food. Will come back if in area wanting Mexican food.

Stopped in for a quick back after driving from Nashville. Condo staff had recommended and said it was good food and inexpensive. They hit the nail on the head. Very clean and food was good. If you want decent Mexican fast, it's definitely an option.

Just happen upon this place for a quick meal. WOW I was happy to find this place. Great Margaritas, food is wonderful. The seating is a bit tight but I didn't mind because the food was great.

We got our Mexican fix tonight at Guadalajara. They were very busy, but we were seated quickly. The salsa and guacamole were very good, so were our meals. Staff were fast and friendly. Definitely recommend.

After a couple of dinners at restaurants where our bills exceeded our budget, we decided we needed to cut back a little. Guadalajara's was just across the street from Gulf Crest Condos where we were staying. We all agreed we would give it a try. The food was worth every economical penny we spent there. The food was good, the... More
