They have some of the best margaritas and quail. Delicious and hopping place. Mexican food is a mix of Tex mex and authentic. Great place to go with a large or small group.

The service was great. Beef lime fajitas were tender and seasoned well. We also ordered the sampler platter and everything was good on that as well. Margaritas were great!!!! Will definitely be a returning customer.

A local walking her very cute bulldog in a stroller, no less, recommend Guadalajara to us! Don't judge these sidewalks would burn a dog's feet here in a few seconds! Anyway, fresh excellent food! Up- scale Mexican is how I would describe it, but not too up scale! We stopped in on our way to the ball game! There were... More

I have had progressively disappointing meals at Guadalajara. This is a shame, since I used to love them. The WORST was take out fajitas, portions were promised to be larger than they were, too expensive, more add ons than meal, and REEKED of artificial smoke seasoning. Not edible.

Brought my wife who came to visit me in Houston to my favorite Tex Mex. This place has the best lime fajitas, fresh, tender, and flavorful. Not to mention, the salsa has lots of garlic and the thin fresh nachos and hot and tasty. This location has a lot of seating, we managed to get in right at 6pm on... More

We dine here several times a month because it's close to the house. The service is always good, and the food has a unique flavor, very authentic. We've always found it a little pricey for Tex-Mex, but given the consistent food and service, we will go if in a hurry. A tip for your young kids, order the Ninos plate,... More

Best green sauce ever. Not sure how a multi location restaurant can be so good. Food is very good and prices are totally in line for comida Mexicana. There is always a wait involved on weekends.

Food was good and fresh. Cooked to order. Server Yazmin A was attentive and prompt. Could not have asked for better. All in our party were pleased.

I enjoyed eating here recently as it is out of my area of town and I get tired of the same old places to eat. The red and green dips were good and so were the happy hour margaritas. Our party enjoyed their various meals and I liked the ceviche appetizer too.
