I've driven by this restaurant 100 times if not more and I told my wife we should stop and try this place because the building stands out as looking like a castle. Well I probably won't be returning due to it's mediocrity. I ordered a shrimp dish cooked in garlic butter. The shrimp were small and the whole plate was... More

If you request the advertised price, you are told that they will only honor it once, future visits at site price, the website has not been updated in a long time, and they cannot honor it. Happy hour and menu dishes are good, lunch buffet food... More

A friend had recommended Mi Guadalajara, and we were glad we followed through on the suggestion. The central area is large, and has an open feeling with a high ceiling. Lots of charm and care was taken in the wall paintings and general set-up. Excellent margaritas, and I loved the Chile Verde I chose for my main dish. We loved... More

We really enjoyed dinner here. The house Margaritas were excellent size, taste, and did not skimp on the Tequila. The food was delicious and the service was excellent!

We walked in and were greeted with terrible looking tables and chairs. Booths looked worn out also. Food taste was below average. Drinks weren't good. We won't go back.

Love the food here. Good prices and delicious lunch buffet. I also enjoy there chili relleno. My wife always orders their Half Super Tostado which is a meal in itself. Highly recommended for all occasions.

Our favorite was closed for the night, so the couple we were with (they were driving) brought us here. Food was very good. Waiter command of English was average bad. Maybe a bit pricy, but perhaps not to you. We had a bottle of wine too. Nice building inside.
