“Good fresh food at reasonable prices”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

Hadn't been in years and it was a very pleasant surprise. Guacamole was very good and I had the enchiladas suizas which were filled with white meat chicken that was moist and tender. We were with a large party of ten and everyone enjoyed their meals. Large portions - plan to take some home. Also great drink menu including one in a pineapple that one of our guests ordered.

“Great Grilled Mesquite Chicken Quesadillas!”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

Beautiful bright colors inside. Love the queso dip for an appetizer. My favorite is the grilled mesquite chicken quesadilla, so yummy. Even the kids chicken fingers and French fries were surprisingly crunchy and tasty. We definitely get filled up when our family goes there. We will always go back for more!

“Good food, great service”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

I like Guadalajara on a number of levels.

First and foremost, the food. They serve all the Tex-Mex standards, tacos and enchiladas and chiles rellenos and such. They also do a nice job with seafood entrees, ranging from shrimp and salmon to ceviche. They’re also quick to bring out the thin, light tortilla chips with a tasty, slightly chunky salsa.

The prices are very good, what you’d expect in a casual dining establishment.

But what really brings me back over and over is the service. I’m usually flying solo on visits to Charlottesville, and get a table for one when I dine there. Guadalajara is family friendly, and packed tables are the norm there. But even though I’m alone, with a correspondingly smaller tab, I am always provided top-tier service. Some reviews here tell me there are better Mexican restaurants in Charlottesville, with better food, and I may even try one out someday. But the service and atmosphere will pretty much keep me as a loyal patron here.

“Delicious and cost effective!”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

A lot of Mexican food tends to be greasy and runny. There food is perfect and delicious! The service is great and a perfect place to dine if you want your food fast! Have been twice in a week!
