We walked in and were greeted with terrible looking tables and chairs. Booths looked worn out also. Food taste was below average. Drinks weren't good. We won't go back.

Love the food here. Good prices and delicious lunch buffet. I also enjoy there chili relleno. My wife always orders their Half Super Tostado which is a meal in itself. Highly recommended for all occasions.

Our favorite was closed for the night, so the couple we were with (they were driving) brought us here. Food was very good. Waiter command of English was average bad. Maybe a bit pricy, but perhaps not to you. We had a bottle of wine too. Nice building inside.

Went on a friday night to celebrate with family. The traveling mariachi group played almost constantly. Sometimes too loud to hold a conversation. Food was excellent!! service good too.

Another excellent and economical eating place in Escondido. Great service, great variety and superb ambience - real Mexican. Enjoy a beer with your dinner, or from the smorgasborg.

Took my lady to Mi Guadalajara yesterday for Mother's Day Mimosa Brunch. We got there about 845am (the brunch started at 9am), and there were already 75 people outside waiting! So we joined them, and in no time, the doors opened and we walked in. We waited about 10-15 minutes before being escorted to our table. Our server brought us... More

The décor is really awesome. We go there mostly for lunch or happy hour. I have always found the service friendly and fast. They have a lunch buffet for $10.95 and a lunch menu. The Perfect Margarita is really good, and the Cheese Crisp is so yummy. I only been for dinner a few times, and I'm not crazy about... More
