They have very good chips and salsa and their lunch specials are very good. Tacos are on point. And the service is always decent.

We ate with friends who had been to Guadalajara a previous time. They had raved about it and so they took us there late on a rainy Saturday afternoon. We immediately felt welcomed. The young waitress was very helpful, and gave us great service. She...More
