The food was delicious and served quickly. The large Margarita was tasty and full of tequila. Finally a margarita with a kick! Our server was very pleasant and attentive. We will go back next time we are in Escondido.

A friend had recommended Mi Guadalajara, and we were glad we followed through on the suggestion. The central area is large, and has an open feeling with a high ceiling. Lots of charm and care was taken in the wall paintings and general set-up. Excellent...More
