“Worst in all ways”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Took a friend for a birthday lunch to this restaurant today. It was practically empty and now I know why - service awful, food awful and customer service awful. I ordered a #2 combination which was a beef taco and a chicken chimichanga. The chimechanga was dry, doughy and tasteless and the beef taco was not served but rather in spite of what the menu said a greasy, tasteless cheesy tostada was substituted without even asking or telling me. The waitress made some lame excuse that this was a lunch menu - NO, they did not have a lunch menu and when asked for one she pointed to the children's menu! Someone who seemed to be the manager offered coffee and dessert on him but the bottom line is that the food was awful, it made me sick and there should have been some effort to at least comp one lunch. I indicated that I would never go back there and that seemed to be met with sarcasm. Now, I ate at this restaurant many years ago and it was good but I would not send my worst enemy there now. It was awful on ALL counts and to think I had to pay for this kind of lunch is an outrage. Frankly, my rice smelled like insecticide so maybe DOH should pay them a visit.

“Okay Generic Mexican”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Guadalajara really tries to please. The service is attentive and they make really good guacamole to order at the table and serve a decent margarita. But the food falls short. The tex-mex dishes taste like any other standard "authentic" Mexican place and show little imagination. You can guess exactly what it will taste like. The seafood specials are overpriced. A little searching up and down Route 9 will find much more interesting Mexican with real soul.

“Going down hill”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

From begining to end the service was not good. We were told our party of 9 had no reservation but then staff found it after a few minutes. One person with a cheese alergy, specifically ordered a dish minus cheese then was given the wrong dish with cheese in it, we caught the mistake before there was an issue. The refried beans were not delivered on a tray and then distributed instead they were delivered in such a way the waiter had no choice but to put at least one finger in each dish to hold them and pass them out. GROSS!! The final wait staff mishap was probably the worst: one person in our group asked the waitress to wrap her leftovers to go, then another waiter came by picked up her dishes and stacked them on top of food that was to be taken out. Then the waitstaff denied it!! Double GROSS!! The guacamole is very good. The rest of the food is OK. I think it was better before the fire.
