This restaurant has improved dramatically from it's pre-fire days over a year ago. The entire service crew is attentive. foods are excellent. We even tried a recommendation from Wendell, our waiter...deviled eggs appetizer with jalapenos. Eggs were great and jalapenos tasty without the normal burning sensation. We split beef and chicken fajitas and the serving for 2 was perfect. Highly... More

We all enjoyed our meal at Guadalajara... But I adored the chili rellenos and the tomatillo salsa! We will be returning in our next trip!

We have been Guadalajara fans for many years and any time we are in Houston we make a point to eat here. Usually we choose the Katy Freeway location but the last time we tried this location on SW Freeway. It was rebuilt after a fire and I don't know what it was like before, but we prefer the Katy...

Best,most tender and taste steaks tipped with crab and Mexican vegetables and spices. It by far was the best meal all week. Don't forget the Margaretta Large and Green salsa with chips. Puts any Mexican and steak house to shame.

Amazing service. They even had a vegetarian menu. Kept the whole table happy. Our friends had shrimp/chicken and I had my vegetarian meal. So many choices. The chips were fresh and they gave a green sauce to go with it. YUM!

It was our first mex tex experience and we loved it! Shrimp tacos were amazing as were the brisket enchiladas. What also added to the overall experience were the staff. They were all very friendly, in particular our waitress Kaitlyn, who spent time happily explaining the menu to us. We wish we had food like this back home !

Thank Scararit
