Best Mexican food we had in San Diego. Very nice outside terrace. Friendly and quick service. Only downside are the long waiting times for dinner, as they don't take reservations.

Five of us had a fun dinner here in early December. Portions are very large, and delicious. This is a very busy restaurant due to its popularity. Make a reservation! I'm hungry for it as I type this review.

What a quality meal we enjoyed. Got the beef burrito and it was chunks of marinated tender beef, not ground beef. Ample servings and a Mexican Band to boot! Had a fantastic experience here - wish we had one back home...

We went there with relatives and had a delicious vegetarian meal in the garden. The staff was super nice. The portions where huge. The server informed us that the flour tortillas contain lard, so remember that when you order. The service was fast. The restrooms could use some revamping, though! All in all a good experience.

With a significant population of Hispanics in my home area I thought I had experienced a lot of good Mexican food. Casa Guadalajara is the most amazing Mexican restaurant that I have eaten at. The food had a great presentation. We sent out pictures to our family of our lunch there. When the rest of the clan arrived for the... More

Crowded Restaurant in Old Town. We were told it was "the best" one in Old Town. We were dissappointed. We have more authentic mexican cuisine in Brevard, NC than only a few miles from the border. I had the Mole Enchilada abd the mole simply had no kick or flavor, it was like brown mole paste out of a can.... More

We are here our first night in San Diego... It is right across the street from our hotel and we were thankful it had been well reviewed by fellow Tripadvisors. The food, the service and the ambiance exceeded all expectations. Huge portions, friendly helpful waitstaff and delicious FRESH Mexican food. I'd give this place 10 stars on a scale of... More

Recently discovered big Mexican food fan here. Went downtown, and all the other places were empty. They told us an hour wait when we checked in, but after a quick tour of the block, found out that our number had been called (after an hour). Promptly seated with Bulldog Margaritas, we ordered an app, and three mains. Food was amazing.... More

This restaurant has some very good food and the service is fast and friendly. The price is just right and the amount of food is large. Eat here early because the line gets long fast because they are that good.
