The restaurant was packed - a good sign - when we were there. We did not wait long and the service was great and timed right. The food was wonderful and portioned right. I would highly recommend Guadalajara...

Best Mexican food in Redding. Guadalajara is consistent. Their recipes stay the same which is something I cannot say about most other Mexican food here in town. The salsa is fresh, and The green sauce is always good.

Living in Arizona you become somewhat spoiled with so many choices when it comes to Mexican food. Within a 500 mile drive we can sample several different styles of Mexican food that are all very different. We traveled to northern California to visit family and we were very pleasantly surprised to find such excellent food. My wife and I both... More

I love this place. We live in Weavervile and every time we head down the hill to shop we eat here. The staff is friendly and always remembers my husband and I. Never had a bad meal.

I had the enchiladas special and they were very small but the beans and rice were excelant. The salsa was way to mild for my taste and the chips were ok. The other person had fajitas and i would say ok as she did not finish them. The margarita was very good. The service was fast efficient and nothing to... More

This restaurant is colorfully decorated and has good selection of dishes. The wait staff is experienced and competent. Although I would not rate the food outstanding, we did enjoy it. It's fairly convenient for the traveler and certainly a better choice than the alternatives close to the freeway.

I know, you've been to restaurants before when you were warned of hot plates. At this restaurant the plates are so hot you can't move them without some means of protection. And, be careful of that first bite! The temperature may surprise you. It is likely too hot and you may need to reach for water to avoid being burned.... More

We were a party of 5. The waiter was professional and efficient. The dishes ordered were large and well made. I will definitely go back when again in Redding

This place is colorful and fun. The staff are upbeat. However, the food is mediocre at best. As cool as the place is inside I wouldn't want to go there again for blah food.
