We went for lunch on a Tuesday. They had plenty of room. Service was good. Most meals were about $15. Food was very good. Lovely atmosphere. We are on the beautiful patio area.

The best restaurant I've been to whilst visiting the states, we dined here two nights in a row we were that impressed. The range of cocktails available is never ending, cheap (most $10), strong, and huge! The piña colada was my favourite! The food was amazing, large proportion but more importantly good quality, (loved my grilled chicken with mango chipotle,... More

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
