Restaurant details
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This restaurant has been here for a couple years but we've never managed to eat there. Fortunately, the kids wanted to go out for dinner and we decided to try something new. THIS WAS A GREAT CHOICE!! There were 6 of us and everyone enjoyed their meal. Friendly folks, we were seated quickly, a great variety of choices on the menu, very reasonably priced, my margarita was strong (always a good thing!), food was fresh (not typical Mexican restaurant fare), staff was attentive but not overbearing. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because it's just not luxury dining - but then that's not why you go there! DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!

Though wearing a loud coat of paint on the walls, the interior of El Guadalajara is comforting, with lots of dark wood, the usual Aztec mythological events depicted in wall decor. The food was wonderful, service attentive but not overbearing. The chips were oven warm! They have a daily lunch special and an extensive menu. One of the options that our server mentioned was home-made tortillas. The flat screen tv showed Spanish language sport, el futbol, but not the soundtrack. You'll have to look for this restaurant, as it is sited a bit back from the road, but your attention will be worthwhile.
