Have eaten here twice in the last few months. Each time, I was awed by the friendliness and promptness of the service. Pleasant cheerful music was playing but it was not too noisy...


I am NOT kidding. We got up and walked out, after showing the waitress the 6 legged crawling vermin And it wasn't an ""outside"" R-word either, like Texas has, it was a 3/4"" insi...

Always happy to go 3/8/2011

This place is super popular for a reason (and by popular, it really does get busy. don't go Friday nights! Unless you like crowds and lines) Food is great, and it's always a lively place to go. Citysearch already has 20 reviews of the place, most of them positive, and for good reason. The one thing I would say, though, is don't exaggerate your expectations, which I think is often the case for newcomers to the place. The place is good, but it's not GREAT... but most of the time, good is, well, pretty good. more

Great service, cheerful ambiance, well-prepared food 9/19/2010

Have eaten here twice in the last few months. Each time, I was awed by the friendliness and promptness of the service. Pleasant cheerful music was playing but it was not too noisy. Everything I have ordered has been very tasty and well-prepared. I usually tend toward the less fattening and more healthy entrees but the chips were too good to pass-up. I love this restaurant and plan to go back soon. I live in the neighborhood. more

Best Mexican Food 9/10/2010

I always enjoy our dining experience at Guadalajara. Food is always tasty. The presenation is excellent. Prices are reasonable. And the staff is excellent! Meridith is delightful! The atmosphere is pleasant. Not Loud!!! more

Great Happy Hour and Staff 12/2/2009

The salsa is great, I could have eaten bowls of it. Also the food was delicious I would recomemnd trying out the new menu they have just installed. The new item is cerviche and its delious. The happy hour is new as well and is from three to seven. They have mango mojotos , pomogrante mojitos, original, and mixed berry, margeritas are on happy hour and beers. The atmoshpere during happy hour is fun but it can get crowded during the dinner rush. The bartenders and very nice and make good company. Pros: Fun atmosphere during Happy Hour Cons: Busy more

Vermin on the freaking table! 6/26/2009

I am NOT kidding. We got up and walked out, after showing the waitress the 6 legged crawling vermin And it wasn't an ""outside"" R-word either, like Texas has, it was a 3/4"" inside R-word, like the kind a place has when there's an infestation. Disgusting. Pros: Service was prompt Cons: the vermin that crawled out from under our chip basket more

Great, but busy on Friday nights 5/30/2008

We visited there on a Friday and it took a long time to get a table for 2 adults and a kid. But the margaritas kept us happy and once we got seated our service was geat and the food was excellent. more

B-Day Party event that should have been held someplace else 11/18/2007

Going for a B-Day celebration our experience did not match our expectations. It took a LONG time to get our drinks and they were rather bland. Rita's were weak and not very tasty. The food was dry and below average tasting. As with most places there was an automatic gratuity with our party but at 18% it was a joke. Based on the service of the staff they did not earn that amount and made off like bandits. This experience makes it easy when choosing to go back or not. There are plenty of other places in town that deserve peoples attention. Pros: Location Cons: Rita's and Service more


Im Canadian, took me awhile to adjust to the huge number of Mexican Restaurants to try. Also took a while for my taste buds to adjust. They dont have 'real' Tex Mex in the great white north. After ying, Lupe's, Pappasitos and a bunch of other's we found Guadalajara....we hardly ever have to wait, the Marguaritas are perfect, love the Pacifico shrimp...they are HUGE!! All this and a great value too...gotta love it!! more

Dessert's a must too! 12/15/2002

Best darn Three Milk cake in the whole universe. Be prepared to take most it home though. It's a huge slice of heaven. The ""Rita's"" are killer too! Pros: fast service, great food good value, killer ritas Cons: crowds at lunchtime, bad acoustics(loud) more

mexican main-stay 12/12/2002

maybe not the very best but very consistant and very tasty. good atmosphere. never a bad meal. Pros: clean, consitent, good service more

All Around Fantasic! 12/6/2002

I go to the Guadalajara on Irvington&Fulton (off of 45N), and it is the best ever! The people are friendly, the food is excellent, the service is fast, and most of all they remember you. Besides the food, the bartenders make excellent drinks! more

Love the Guad' 11/6/2002

They may actually have one of the best dish in the country. 'Guadalajara Enchiladas'. You might want to try something different than just beef enchiladas all the time. I did. Fantastic. more

A Food Fiesta! 11/4/2002

Loved the food, the atmosphere and the service. The music kept me dancing in my seat and the delightful waiter topped it all off! My 9 yr old sang the happy song when she took her first bite! Pros: inexpensive, Great Decorations, Great Music more

Salsa Maravillosa!!! 10/27/2002

The food is decent and definitely worth the trip, but the one thing that keeps me coming back is the salsa. Besides the salsa fresca at Chuy's, this is the most refreshing a flavorful salsa you will find in Houston. I have to stop myself after the 5th refill of my bowl. Pros: Salsa, Salsa, Inexpensive Cons: Atmosphere, Margaritas more

mucho grande 9/11/2002

Great food always fresh and good service. We especially liked the presentation! more

meltdown 9/3/2002

This restaurant is very good. It provides a variety of foods; from salads, soups, seafood, and traditional mexican food. The margaritas are great. They are best when you order a meltdown. Pros: margaritas, inexpensive, delicious more

Best value and excellent quality! 8/21/2002

I feel that one gets the ""Best value and excellent quality"" for the money's worth and the 'crew' is simply fabulous and exceptionally friendly! Pros: Good parking, Right price, Enough serving! more

Good and Spicy 6/16/2002

An excellent place to eat - they offer a good variety of both Tex/Mex and more traditional spicy mexican food. The Chips and Salsa are among the best I've had in Houston. Check it out for yourself. THe only drawback is that their flour tortillas are a tad sandy. OTherwise, it is an excellent place to go. more
