We did not receive our food until 7:30, although we had plenty of chips. I don't like filling up on chips prior to eating a meal. We were there on a very busy evening (Valentines' Day) to welcome friends visiting us from Chicago. All of your staff are very pleasant, but the slow delivery of our meal was rediculous. The Seabass I ordered was pretty much cold although the plate was heated! Also not acceptable. My request for a veggi substitute for the potatoes was honored and I appreciate that accomodation. Our calamari appetizer was delicious and served at a proper temperature. Our waiter was efficient and helpful, honoring our requests, but the late arrival of our food was out of his hands. Your kitchen was too busy for the sold-out crowd that attended. One suggestion: When your kitchen is overwhelmed by the crowd size, comp a single appetizer to the table. Make some gesture that shows you are aware of the inconvenience rather than just keep the chip basket full.

Our first return since the fire 2 years ago and feel that they have not missed a step. Menu has changed somewhat, but still there are lots of good choices. The salsa is made to order at the table to your specs. Margaritas were still great with many choices.

We had such a great meal at Guadalajara Fiesta Grill. Service was excellent by the server and the management who came around to ensure we had everything we needed, the famous table side salsa was amazing and the meals were all delicious.

Guadalajara is a great “go to” place for Mexican food. The table side salsa is fantastic and the food is always delicious. Fabulous choices of beverages to suit everyone. We had Chicken chimichangas and a shredded beef chimi. Good to the last bite!

We were extremely disapointed in the food. The salsa in our view was not good. Our friends that ordered fajitas found the chicken to be very dry. We will not be returning!

Juan Carlos our server was friendly and knowledgeable. Tried the Taquitos con Papas and it’s delicious! The chicken chimichanga was excellent as well. The table side salsa is made to your liking and that is nice for those who are more finicky or not tolerant of spicy salsa.

The patio, which was the primary reason we went there was closed. The food wasn't very good, it wasn't Authentic at all. You can tell it was just to please the local populace.

I was looking for a 3-generation restaurant that would be comfortable and fun for ages 2 to 67. This was perfect for that. The food was good, the tableside guacamole was great - as noted by others, and the outside table was a perfect 3-sides "booth" for 5 adults and 2 munchkins. The service was excellent, and the value was good.

The customer service was great. The wait for the food was a bit excessive. The food was not too good. The food was definitely not worth the price paid. The good thing though was they give plenty of food for you to get really full. Overal it was a decent place, but not worth visiting too often.

The food was good but not as good as the last time we were there. The food came out fast and but we felt rushed by our server. The biggest complant was it was way to hot in building. We could not really enjoy our stay and did not feel like eating all of our food because of it.

Great Mexican food served by a friendly staff. One of our favorite things is that they prepare your salsa tableside and make sure it's suited just to your liking. Their outdoor patio is also nice in the fall and spring, but their summertime misters put out too much water and the mosquitoes were a big problem so we opted to sit inside this time. They need to warn people about the mosquitoes before they seat them outside as other folks moved back inside because of this, too. Despite the patio issues, we always enjoy it there.😊

Excellent food and service. This restaurant is known for making salsa at your table so you can decide how spicy which is great with a group of people with different taste.

Make sure a manager checks you in if you have an Open Table reservation... otherwise, which has happened to me every time I dine there, you get put as a no show which = no points. Do not believe the hostess that she will put your information in the system. Get a manager to do so.

My family and I went for dinner and my mom and I ordered the same thing, the Chiles rellenos with beans and rice and a tamal. When we got our food we tasted the tamal and it was cold, we then tried the chile relleno and it was warm, we told our server and he didn't hesitate to replace the food. A few minutes later we got our food, (we had asked them to replace the tamal with a chile relleno instead) they gave us the same food they had taken away, except the tamal was gone and a slightly warmer chile relleno was in its place. The food was not great. The cheese on the beans did not even melt . We were very dissapointed by the food.

We have visited this restaurant on many occasions. Had this been our first visit, we would not return. The food was extremely salty. Judging by the amount of food left on plates at other tables, I would have to say that others felt the same 5.

Met our friends here for dinner one Friday night. Arrived a little early so got in on Happy Hour. Great timing, $4 margaritas were fabulous, as was our appetizer. Fish tacos were delicious. All dinners were large portions so boxes home for lunch the next day.
