Went in just before the lunch crowd of workers came in. It's quite popular, but I think the taqueria is more popular. Service is effiecient and the prices are decent. The help yourself tortilla & salsa bar is nice.

My family and I have been coming to here for at least 18 to 20 years. My niece and nephew moved to Asia later but whenever they'd come back to visit grandma, the first stop is always here. The food is concisely delicious and our favorites, enchiladas never changed. I had just gotten back from a long trip in France... More

Judging by the lunch lines every day, this is very popular with working Latinos. Though they will make an "American Breakfast", it's really still a Mexican restaurant, and the food is good, inexpensive and pretty genuine. Nothing fancy! Really a hole in the wall with a few tables, but you won't regret the taste.

This restaurant offers very tasty Mexican food. It's a popular neighborhood restaurant. They offer free salsa and chips and the food is prepared in the open kitchen.

A very busy Thursday night at the Guadalajara Grill attests to the popularity at this neighborhood restaurant. The enchiladas and carnitas are delicious. I haven't tried the menudo yet but look forward to going next weekend.

Small dining room, but good basic Mexican food. You can eat a meal or a la carte. They have regular breakfasts too.

This place is very close to my home and I come here several times a week. It's a great place for take out. I recommend the chorizo or carnitas tacos with guacamole or the enchilada plate if you are the proper dinner type. The service is fast and the place is clean. I do wish their salsas were a bit...

Tried this restaurant with a friend, who likes eating out here. He sure knows where to take us! We ordered several different things and all dishes were great. The service is smooth, fast and very friendly. We really loved this little place and went back at least 2 more times. Our favourite is the avocados stuffed with veggies and shrimp:... More
