Some hits and some misses. You won't leave hungry. We enjoyed the mariachi music but it does get loud. Medium margarita is huge but not very strong. Enjoyed my meal

Staying across the street at a Hilton Garden Inn in Old Town San Diego I looked up restaurants within walking distance and was glad to see Casa Guadalajara was nearby and had fantastic reviews (and in the top 40 of over 4000 restaurants rated on TA!). I was glad. Now I'm so, so happy! We just got home from dinner... More

The food was very good and closed to the hotel I stay. It was a long wait, about two hours, but good service.

Great chips & salsa, top shelf margaritas were large but not potent to charge $15.50 each. Likewise the grande platter was large but nothing special. Being from Texas, may have had higher expectations for Mexican cuisine in SD. Loved Old Town and the ambiance of Casa Guadalahara though.

We went for lunch on a Tuesday. They had plenty of room. Service was good. Most meals were about $15. Food was very good. Lovely atmosphere. We are on the beautiful patio area.

The best restaurant I've been to whilst visiting the states, we dined here two nights in a row we were that impressed. The range of cocktails available is never ending, cheap (most $10), strong, and huge! The piña colada was my favourite! The food was amazing, large proportion but more importantly good quality, (loved my grilled chicken with mango chipotle,... More

Best Mexican food we had in San Diego. Very nice outside terrace. Friendly and quick service. Only downside are the long waiting times for dinner, as they don't take reservations.

Five of us had a fun dinner here in early December. Portions are very large, and delicious. This is a very busy restaurant due to its popularity. Make a reservation! I'm hungry for it as I type this review.
