We have been going to Guadalajara restaurant for many years. The staff is very friendly and always personable when we come in. The food is always fresh and very authentic Mexican homemade.

Always great food and prompt friendly service. So many good dishes! We often get the Guadalajara Grill Whitehall comes with Carne Asada, chicken, shrimp al mojo de ago. Guacamole, lightly grilled onions, jalapeño's, beans and rice and is served on a sizzling skillet. We usually split it and still take some home. Everything they serve is top shelf!

Guadalajara is a Main Street, Lake Elsinore fixture, and for all the right reasons. Great Cal-Mex dishes, some regional favorites, friendly, efficient staff, and a fun, family atmosphere make Guadalajara easy to like

The food was great but a bit expensive for Mexican food. I really liked the location and the atmosphere was nice. The Margarita's were excellent and nice sized. Has an outside dining area which we chose not to do since it was after dark and the weather was cool. The outside dining area looked really nice, weather permitting.

Went there to celebrate birthdays, the waitress was nice and competent, we got a myriad of different dishes, everyone liked their food, and the prices are very reasonable. Good Mexican food at fair prices, with a casual dining atmosphere.

This is a really nice place to eat if you are looking for some good Mexican food and are in the Lake Elsinore area. I like the outside patio when eating there. The drinks are just as good as the food. Waiter or waitress they know how to let you relax. On Saturdays sometimes they have a guy playing the... More

Food is good, but not always consistent. Sometimes the quantity varies. Been there three times. It's always busy.

Well priced but not memorable. This old building is inadequately air conditioned, so we were uncomfortable throughout our dinner time there. Service is great, and they fed our group of 25 efficiently.
