Close to our hotel and the convention center. Great mango marguerita. Excellent service for six of us. Salmon was one of the best meals in a long time. Large and noisy but they handled the crowd well.

This is a great restaurant very close to the Convention Centre and the Marriott Hotel. We had probably our bext Mexican meal ever there! It fills up fast, but just give the hostess your name and you usually only have to wait a short time to get in.

You can see how Guadalajara continues to fill it's seats when they combine tasty food with excellent service. The atmosphere was open, clean, crisp, well lit and inviting. Service was extremely attentive without being overbearing. And it wasn't just my server - I was observing the other staff in action also. Food was very good and good value. I'd definitely recommend Guadalajara del Centro in downtown Houston.

Service was good. Food was delicious. Salsa had just the right amount of heat for me. I had the "mini" sopapillas. They were huge. Came with whipped cream, ice cream and honey. Give it a try. You won't be sorry.

Unfortunately, Mexican restaurants frequently follow a cookie cutter formula for menu and preparation. They're good, but not memorable. Guadalajara is a pleasant exception.

The menu is diverse and excellent. Sure, you can order standard enchiladas and Tex-Mex combos, but there's also tilapia smothered in ceviche, and carne asada with a mushroom cream sauce. I had both, and they were superb. Numerous other out-of-the-ordinary selections are also available.

You can tell that you're in for a treat as soon as the chips and salsa are presented with the menu. Two types of salsa are served (green and red), and both are flavorful and way above average. If Guadalajara pays this much attention to a free appetizer that other restaurants simply pour out of a jar, you know that the best is yet to come.
