We were so excited to visit a Mexican restaurant in San Diego, and were recommended this restaurant in particular so we gave it a try. We were seated right away and were excited to order.

It's been some time since we last visited Casa Guadalajara so we stopped by to celebrate our son's graduation. The food was wonderful and the experience was as we remembered. We thoroughly enjoyed the Guacamole Dip, Fajitas, Beef Burrito and Beef Chimichanga... Topped of with a Cadillac Margarita... Ole!

Fajitas are good and the service is OK, but the wait is way to long. A very touristy spot. Food is as good as any other Mexican Restaurant and it depends on your server. Good if you can find parking.

Under impressed with the Mexican food, but a real funky place and great setting. Received the wrong item from the menu and service was questionable.
