Amazing food, great service, staff is friendly. Chicken Quesadillas are too yummy. Ambience is excellent.

our group went at lunch - it's very different, but unique - there wasn't much meat on my taco salad, but the queso was fabulous! The drink was pretty good as well - I had a frozen strawberry margarita. About the best choice for quick Mexican fare and drinks downtown :)

Tried Guadalajara (aka GUAD) for the first time since it reopened after the fire. Won't be back soon. The prices for dinner have definitely been upgraded (!!) without much to support it. My husband ordered a seafood enchilada dish that was mediocre at best. Didn't even save the left overs. I had the mahi, which tasted better, but was nonetheless... More

Guadalajara Mexican Grill & Bar is a very nice restaurant off of 59 near Kirby. The landscaping and flower beds are nice. It's a very nice restaurant inside as well. I enjoyed their chips and salsa / green sauce. Both were very tasty. I had their beef soft taco and cheese enchilada plate off the lunch menu. It was very... More

The food looked decent coming out of the kitchen, so we decided to grab a small bite. While the service was quick and attentive, the food tasted like it was purchased at a supermarket and heated right out of a box or frozen package. It was a real bummer and I will not be eating here in the future.

Quick and friendly service. Food was a little different from the Tex Mex where I live (Midwest) but was flavorful and generous portions.

Great service by Erica. She recommended a new tequila that we loved. The lime beef fajitas were great with plenty of leftovers for a wonderful breakfast we enjoyed ourselves tremendously!

This restaurant has improved dramatically from it's pre-fire days over a year ago. The entire service crew is attentive. foods are excellent. We even tried a recommendation from Wendell, our waiter...deviled eggs appetizer with jalapenos. Eggs were great and jalapenos tasty without the normal burning sensation. We split beef and chicken fajitas and the serving for 2 was perfect. Highly... More
