Mexican is our favorite option while on the road. Guadalajara proved just why that is. The décor is the usual colorful brightness that is almost standard. The staff was friendly and efficient. For briefness, I’ll agree with most of the more positive reviews. That is what we found here. Two decent margaritas, good chips and salsa, we each had a... More

The atmosphere of this restaurant, if you like traditional Mexica food, is great. The people are very nice, and the service was excellent. The guacamole is very good. We had fajitas, which were very average...I'm from Texas...so my standard for fajitas might have been too high...the rice and beans were good, but not like the Tex-Mex I'm used to. My... More

The restaurant was packed - a good sign - when we were there. We did not wait long and the service was great and timed right. The food was wonderful and portioned right. I would highly recommend Guadalajara...

Best Mexican food in Redding. Guadalajara is consistent. Their recipes stay the same which is something I cannot say about most other Mexican food here in town. The salsa is fresh, and The green sauce is always good.

Living in Arizona you become somewhat spoiled with so many choices when it comes to Mexican food. Within a 500 mile drive we can sample several different styles of Mexican food that are all very different. We traveled to northern California to visit family and we were very pleasantly surprised to find such excellent food. My wife and I both... More
