A PIECE OF MEXICAN HEAVEN!!!! – The food was great the staff very friendly...my husband and I couldn't decide what we wanted, and the staff came over, and helped one of the ladies instantly picked up on my husbands accent and started speaking Spanish..it was very inviting..I would definitely go back..THE BEST MEXICAN FOOD I'VE EVER EATEN....
Best Mexican I've had since Mexico!!! – I've driven by this restaurant millions of times, but never tried it until today when my pregnancy cravings kicked in. My family and walked in to a quaint little piece of mexican charm. It reminded me of this restaurant from one of our trips down in mexico. I loved listening to the water fountain during lunch. Now the food... I don't think I can do it justice with my words. Everything was fresh and authentic, the guacamole, pico de gallo, salsa. The burritos were the size of my sons head. My husband said his chimichangas where some of the best he'severs had, and the carne asada tacos were perfect. This is now going to be our regular spot with moving over to the westchase area. We saw a little party going on also on the way out in the back side since it's L shaped, and I thought this would be the perfect place for a big family outing dinner. Oh and there was only two waitresses working, they were faster than ten and beyond pleasant. If your confused on where to go GO HERE... trust me you'll be beyond satisfied.
LOVE IT – My favorite since we moved here from texas. Love the tamales,menudo and tortillas. Love it, love it, love it
Great Mexican Food! – Staff is great. Food is even better. Prices are reasonable. I have been visiting this establishment for about 8 years and we have never had a bad experience. I would recommend this Mexican food over any other in the Tampa Bay area.
DISAGREE WITH ALL THE OWNERSS REVIEWS BELOW – The family who owns this dump has obviously forgotten how to maintain a decent resturant. Staff is HORRIBLE! they are rude and slow and talk down to you if you dont know how to pronounce a dish. THE PLACE IS FILTHY!! THERE WAS A COCKAROACH CRAWLIING ON MY TABLE!!!
I would never recommend this horribly dirty "resturant" to ANYONE!
the food was cold, the staff was rude, over priced and the place is not up to par by any means.
the best freaking mexican food in tampa!!!! – I have been a loyal guadalajara costumer since day one and I can honestly say I have never had a bad experince here. :) When you first walk in your are greeted by either a beautiful young lady named judy or a handsome young man named andrew(the owners children) who make you feel right at home. After you are sat down you can't help, but notice the great ambiance of the place!!!!! There is a gorgeous fountain in the main room that flows water and makes your dinner relaxing, two stain glass aztec calanders on the roof of the two sections, and the people of different nationality laughing and enjoying their cuisine. Attending to your every need are a great staff who always have smiles on their faces. As you wait for the food you eat tasty chips and salsa that has the right amount of spices to give you that kick you need. :) When the food arrives you are able to enjoy the delicious taste with every bite you take and when your done you are left satisfied, but wishing you could do it over just to eat again! haha This place is the best mexican restaurant in the tampa bay area. Every time I go I love it more and everytime I leave I can't wait to come back again.
Totally unacceptable service! – I ordered a large chicken burrito and received something stuffed with maybe two little pieces of chicken and a ton of peppers & onions. I did not eat this. I asked for a replacement which was ok, but the hostess accused me of eating both and charged me for both! I told her I am never coming back to her establishment again, and she said that was fine with her! She was rude and nasty, and I will take my business elsewhere. I eat out everyday and have taken business clients here many times in the past, but NEVER AGAIN!
The best of the best – I have to disagree with the people on this page that say Guadalajara Mexican Res is anything but the best MEXICAN FOOD... I come from a long line of Mexican heritage, & I can easily say YES YES YES & YES to the food here.. The people who say they didn't enjoy it, were probably the people who couldn't afford it & couldn't get out of a free meal. The staff are very friendly the service can be fast on certain days, If you are on a short lunch break to don't think to come after 1 and expect the meal to come out in ten minutes, every body who KNOWS FRESH Mexican food KNOWS it takes a while to cook so if your in hurry go to Wendy's or Mickey D's... The atmosphere is very welcoming & clean. If someone says that they got sick here Its probably because they are not used to real Mexican food! I come in there for lunch twice a week with a group of co-workers & they would all have to agree with me when it comes to good Mexican. Guadalajara takes the cake!
P.S. The menu given on this web site is not correct.... I learned my mistake ordering the Brenda burrito
Guadalajara Mexican Restaurant – I ate at this restaurant with two others all of us got extremely ill from the first bite of food and did not eat another bite.. The worst!!! I do not recommend you visit this establishment.
Best Mexican in Tampa! – LOVE THIS PLACE! Great food, great atmosphere, great service, great prices! The best Mexican in town!!
