We stopped here for a break from our walking and enjoyed strawberry lemonade outside - made with fresh strawberries. Very relaxing, friendly service. It is a full service restaurant, but we cannot address the meals. The outside seating is comfortable, but has a lot of concrete- not a lot of green to soften it - near a busy highway. Part... More

We wanted to try a different Mexican restaurant from what we usually visit, so we tried Guadalajara bar and grill, that was the worse decision ever, first of all most of the staff is rude as heck! The food portions are small, and the food is not all that great. And to top it all off we found a hair... More

I am very sorry to hear about your problem. I investigated with my staff, and the server immediately informed the manager who apologized, removed the dish and asked if he could bring something else. Another staff member heard the conversation and said he was never rude. The server was given a generous tip by your party so that indicates to... More

We have been visiting the Guadalajara Grill for 6 years during the Texas Music Educators Assn. show. Super cold beers and delicious margaritas. The food is excellent!! Perfect sized portions and the tacos and rice/beans fantastic!! Thanks to Willie, Bianca and the rest of the staff!

Great food and friendly service. This isn't the Tex-Mex food you find on the Riverwalk. I always look forward to this place every time I visit San Antonio.

It was a horrible service. The food portions were small which was a good thing because it made us sick later in the day.....poor service and careless staff will drive the owner out of business. We live and work only blocks away.

Place was full when we arrived which we thought meant it would be good. Waited behind a family of five to be seated and only got seated when the family told us about a table for two available and waved us through. Same family wasn't seated until at least 30 mins later. Good food, we both had tacos and they... More

We have long been fans of the Guadalajara Grill and fell in love with this restaurant chain while living in San Diego...enjoying their food in both San Diego and in Tijuana. Lunch at their San Antonio location was greatly anticipated! It turned out to be a huge disappointment. The tortilla chips brought to the table were good, but the salsa... More

We decided to try this quaint place, as it looked interesting and not like a tourist trap. We were ignored by staff for about 8 minutes while we waited to find out how to get seated. Eventually a very apathetic man took us outside to a table. He promptly took out drink order and the disappeared for 15 minutes. After... More

I am very sorry to hear of your unacceptable experience. I have questioned my staff and I believe I have identified your server. While I understand it's not a valid excuse, it was a busy time due to a convention of 12,000+ people who flooded downtown. Still it's not an excuse for apathetic or mediocre service and I will speak... More

We picked this restaurant because we could sit inside, it was 32 degree outside. Real nice waiter. Good mojitos and good fajitas
