place in Dallas....BUT....this is far more. A joint, well maybe, don't be but off. They are pros, everything I've tried is way above the Pasteurized, and Anglo'ized "stuff" we've been served. Not a fine dining, lingering sort of place, BUT a place not to be missed.

Authentic Mexican food and really tasty! Service is fast and friendly. The dining room is relaxing and comfortable, great for large parties or small gatherings.

The food here is really good, as was the margarita. Very casual, counter ordering, and a patio for dining outdoors. Chips and salsa don't come with meals.

Walk up order and mainly self serve. Food was good. Chips and salsa cost extra. I'd probably go back. Not that clean of place either. But ok for a quick in and out.

If you like authentic Mexican food this place is great- The chips and salsa is fantastic. My wife likes the tostadas and I love the carne asada- You wont go hungry- Its a order at the counter place with fast service

I always go for lunch and have a beer and nachos or a burrito. Great patio and very quick service. Lots of parking. One day I really studied the menu and given that I am from Brooklyn, NY I noticed fresh oysters on the half shell. I am addicted!

We love the Southside location & it is one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in Taos. You go up to the counter & place your order & the food comes out fast. The fajitas are delicious. They are served with beans & rice & tortillas. The hot sauce here is fresh & delicious as well. Be sure & try the... More

My wife and I are very happy to have found the Guadalajara Grill South. Lots of seafood dishes. Delicious! Voted Best Food in Taos three years in a row! And we know why. The dinning is casual. Good beer selection. Friendly native staff.

There are two Guadalajara Grills in Taos. The one located on the north side of town in El Prado is our favorite. Food is outstanding, try the pork tacos, guacamole, carne asada and shrimp dishes. I think just about everything is delicious. The wait staff is friendly and extremely helpful.

Order at the counter. Dinners come in full and half orders. We could easily have split a full dinner and gone away stuffed. Looked like a place for locals as well as tourists.
