“Great authentic Mexican food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

This is an excellent Mexican restaurant. My grandma from Mexico said this is the best Mexican, that she has had, outside of her own cooking. It's nothing fancy, but it's "real" and not trendy like a lot of milwaukee area Mexican restaurants are. I love coming here, so does all of my family

“Good food, reasonable prices.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

My husband and I ate at this restaurant after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. The atmosphere was OK, plastic tablecloths and Mexican decor. It is definitely frequented by locals. The service was very good. The portions were generous and the food authentic. We would definitely go again if in the vincinity.

“Great find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2011

Prices are great. I only paid $4 for a cup of wine. Three of us went and only paid $33.00 total - not bad!!

Mixture of Mexican and puerto rican food. The broiled fish was a little tasteless and dry. From what i hear the fried fish is really good and popular. The pasteles were good, not great. The best thing was the Churasco!! Very very tasty and good.

The ambiance was nice and relaxing. I really enjoyed this place. Must try!

“Some of the best food in Milwaukee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2009

I've been to Guadalajara many times. After trying almost every Mexican restaurant in the Milwaukee area, I have settled on Guadalajara as the best of the lot and find myself returning there more than any other.

Everything is freshly made from scratch. The pico de gallo and guacamole are exquisite. The enchiladas are, contrary to one reviewer's opinion, quite good and may be the ultimate comfort food.

The atmosphere is quiet and the staff attentive. On top of it all, the location has extremely easy freeway access. If you haven't tried Guadalajara yet, make your plans to go now.

“Not Happy with their enchiladas”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2008

I have order cheese enchiladas from them a few times (different kinds) but every single one have come out bad, I would never order them again... the 1st time they made them in the mircowave and it safe like the plate they made it on, the 2nd time they got my order wrong but i didnt take it back.. this time the cheese they used and everything was off and there was no sauce to it so it was dry.... on the other hand their Guacamole is really good but they raised their price on it :-(
