Many top shelf margaritas to choose from. Try the Padron. Mediums are large. Food is excellent tex-mex style.

Like Pizza and BBQ, Mexican food is a matter of the consumer's taste and varies greatly by region of Mexico. In my opinion, this is a very nice restaurant with unique flavors. They make dishes slightly different than other Mexican restaurants in the area, but have some unique flavors and variations on traditional dishes. The food was fresh and nicely... More

From the moment you walk in the door the place is just fun. From the lady making fresh flour tortillas to the amazing margaritas you will not be disappointed. food portions are huge so plan on either sharing or taking home leftovers. the chips and salsa are exceptional. great place highly recommend. only downside is the parking is kind of...

I made the mistake of coming here a little too early for dinner but it was mostly because of the horror stories I read about how hard it can be to get in without reservations (which they were not taking for that night specifically). We got there at 4 but could've come at 5 and gotten a seat. I wasn't... More

My husband and I spent a week in San Diego, Casa Guadalajara in old town was our favorite place to eat. We went back there twice. The Tostada with shrimps was absolutely delicious. If you are visiting San Diego a meal at Casa is a must,I would definitely recommend it fantastic atmosphere and music

We have been here before and it never disappoints. My family loved the food which was served hot and delicious. We got a chimichanga, carne asada and shrimp, lobster/shell fish tacos and drinks. The lobster tacos were so delicious! The raspberry margarita was a favorite and the beers were cold. Prices are good and service is fast!

Front of the house staff is very nice and friendly. Instantly felt welcome. My wife ordered a Mangonada Margarita which she really enjoyed of. I recommend it if you enjoy a sweet cocktail. I just had a Pacifico beer. We ordered the "antojitos platter" to start. Once it arrived it didn't seem too appealing to my eye. Presentation is very... More

Food was tasty and plentiful. The wait staff was courteous and attentive. The ambiance was perfect for the cuisine. If you go to Old Town, make a point of eating here.

The theme was great, the only good comment I have. I order the cheese enchilada, chili Relleno, and taco. I couldn't even find my Chili Relleno on the plate it was hidden in all the sauce and the cheese enchilada was just not good, the tortilla was hard, and I didn't even touch my taco because it just didn't even...

We visited on a Saturday night and only waited for 15 minutes for a table for two, although I suspect more people and warmer weather would make wait times longer. Food was quite good and margarita's gigantic. Good authentic Mexican dishes.
