Had a reservation, but they failed to honor it. Never got past the front desk so the dinner experience was terrible. Had to go elsewhere in order to eat dinner. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!!!

We were looking forward to eating out and we were taking friends to dinner our treat. We purposely came to the Broadway location even though Kolb was closer. because of a good experience about a year ago. I was so disappointed in our waiter. I have never had such a bad experience..I cant even begin to tell you all that we experienced. I was embarrassed that I chose this restaurant.

Jorge is RUDE!
I never want to have him wait on me or anyone in my party EVER again!
He presumed since I am plus size that I wanted to drink a DIET COKE! This is unexpectable when we are spending our hard earned money at your establishment. We can spend our money anywhere.....will not come her to be insulted again.

PS This was at Kolb Rd location on 9-4-20

Front desk lady was kind and helpful.
There is a lady who makes you salsa after your chips arrive, that was pretty awesome.
Waiter was nice but he took so long to take our order for drinks, then our food. Despite the wait, the food was good.
I wouldn’t mind going there again. As long as I have a different waiter.

Good social distancing if I assume they clean the reusable menus between customers. Very extensive menu all great prices and excellent portions. Served hot and fresh from the kitchen. Don’t miss their table side salsa and I love their Chile relleno plate. Full bar.

My order came wrong, pointed it out to waiter, he said he put it in right....
squeamishly said is it okay? felt he didnt want to return it (plus rest of plate would get cold)
I let it go. But felt as though he it should never have left the kitchen incorrectly.

Loved the plexiglass between the seats and booths. Very clean and well maintained. Full bar. Great menu very classic for Mexico City and they achieve the flavors and presentation perfectly. Nice portions. Love their enchiladas and their various combination. Not a fan of their version of guacamole with Audrey pieces of tomato cucumber and big pieces of lettuce though super fresh - just different. I would highly recommend and go back indeed

They have assumed the social distancing guides with masks everywhere and in seating. Did not see their cleaning technique but suspect it was fine.
As for the food: wonderful flavors, authentic recipes with many many many choices of special plates and great combinations to try - extensive indeed.
The table side salsa was superbly fresh and made to my slice requests with fresh warm chips. A great start. The service was very friendly and helpful.
I have already made a return reservation!

I went the day the Super Bowl was on so it was pretty empty so they prepared a table for my family and I pretty quick. My family got full off just the salsa and chips so they didn’t eat much of the food they ordered. We ordered salsa for the chips but it wasn’t really spicy. We ordered mild and spicy but they both tasted mild. The service is amazing though, our server was very nice and considerate of our large family, he was very patient and came by often to make sure we were satisfied with the food. Overall a good experience.

They were very busy and appeared to be short staffed on Jan 1 New Years Day so getting seated even with a reservation started out a little rocky and we had to wait 20 minutes + to be seated .
However, once seated we had excellent service with the table side salsa , our server David And the staff who brought meals to our table! The food was delicious, fresh , well seasoned , and well presented!
Our drinks were refilled quickly and efficiently
We will definitely go back!!

The food was excellent. However the service left alot to be desired. We were a group of 8 and it took 10 minutes before we were acknowledged and another 205 minutes before we were served drinks but not all together. Two of the 8 drink order were wrong. Our food arrived immediately once the drinks arrived..Almost simultaneously. Everyone enjoyed their food and talked about what they'd have next time.

Restaurant was cold and dark. Food arrived barely lukewarm. Server informed, took plates away. Brought second serving, not much better. Food was barely warn, not steaming hot as I would expect at a Mexican restaurant. Disappointing 62nd wedding anniversary exprience. Will not be returning.

We hadn't been to this particular G. Grill location for a few months but it was good to come back. All of the staff was wonderful, particularly our server, David, who was simply outstanding. Food was as expected -- delicious, especially the salsas, guacamole, and margaritas. We'll be back!

In Tucson for FS1 football tonight. Stopped in for lunch. I got one thing for lunch and something to go to take back to my hotel. The mixed up the order? I opened the menu and showed the waiter what I wanted. Then when he was done writing, I showed what I wanted to go. How does this happen? Oh well. The fresh salsa made tableside was fantastic!

The restaurant was poorly prepared for the volume of people attending Family Weekend at the University. Once he took our order the waiter was not attentive and it took several tries to find him to get water service. The food took over an hour for the food to be served and 2 of the entrees were cold and one was luke warm. My entree was shrimp enchiladas which was cold and so unappetizing, I could not eat it. When we complained, we were given a discount on our bill and we left.

The reason I said I would recommend Guadalajara Grill is we have eaten at one of the other places, and the food was fabulous which is why we made a reservation. However, we were very disappointed and would caution someone to not go when it is busy.

For the most part it was a nice evening. Unfortunately in celebrating my birthday I ordered tequila shots for the table and after 20 minutes I was told it would be just a few more minutes. So that set the tone for a disappointing time. The food was good but the service people need extra training.

One of the four dishes served was NOT as described. When questioned, the server said “it comes like that.” Overall, food was marginal and service fair, at best. So many other Mexican restaurants are available, thank goodness.
