This used to be a pretty good place to eat in the past. The last couple of times we were there the quality of the food was bad, the service was horrible. The prices keep going up. Probably won't be back.

Met some friends for a midday, election day pick-me-up. Margarita was excellent! Food was the best! If you want authentic Mexican this far north, come to Guads. You won't be disappointed.

This is the best Mexican in the Black Hills. The huge menu offers traditional foods and a variety of margaritas.

One can experience authentic Mexican cuisine at Guadalajara...The reason being because the people who own and operate the restaurant are from Mexico. The food is delicious and the service is outstanding

We haven't had good mexican food in years! We recently moved to SD from AK, and never found a yummy mexican place in AK but we've found our mexican here in SD! Seriously so good! And their staff was amazing! Even though it's about a 30 minute drive for us, I see us doing it at least 1 or 2... More

I live in Spearfish and this is a local hotspot! Their queso is the best in town and I haven't found any place with better Carne Asada in town or Rapid City!

To call this authentic Mexican is a joke. I unfortunately have had better food at a Taco Bell that is closer to authentic then this place. It is by far one of the most bland Mexican food I have ever had. So Save your Taste buds and go to the other better Mexican restaurant in town and leave this one... More

I don't find it bland abit, and I like spicy foods. And also for a friend, they can suggest gluten free dishes. It seems to be always very busy, but service is so good. The servings are large, so be prepared to take home some of the food. The servers even tho through all the business, came out to sing... More

I ordered the enchiladas with chicken. The chicken was very moist, but the cheese and topping on the dish was very bland. Two salsas were served, although good, not very spicy. My husband ordered a burrito, which was quite large and he thought it was pretty good. Service was fast and efficient, but servers were not friendly...very clinical...just get the... More
