Carne Asada Tampiqueña

Omg, this is the best item in the menu! Always cooked perfect and the steak is so tender. Grilled onions and green chili are sooo good! With the best cheese enchilada! But you have to get the large Cadillac margarita to go with it! By far my favorite restaurant in San Diego and I've lived here over 25 years! Friendly staff and the coolest patio with a huge tree in the center. Couldn't get a better place to bring family and friends when visiting or special occasions. The bar is great to for happy hour! Best place in SD! Amy

Carne Asada Tampiqueña

This was the absolute best carne asada plate I've ever had. The meat had the best flavor. The meals are large portions so you will not leave hungry. I recommend this option to everyone when we go!

5. Two Enchiladas

Got take out, served in a nice big foil platter so my food wasn't mixed up or squashed. Delicious as always. This is my favorite dish, they have the best enchilada sauce there is.

Cochinita Pibil

Wow! So, I love carnitas and wanted to try a different pork dish and chose the Cochinita Pibil. It was delicious. The pork was tender and very flavorful, the pickled onions and cabbage brought a unique flavor enhancement to the pork. You get your choice of flour or corn tortillas (I picked the flour since they are handmade in the restaurant) you get a side of rice and beans, and some salsa, and most importantly you get FULL! I am a big guy and I could not finish the entire thing in one sitting. If you like pork you should try this.

Combination Vegetariana

As a vegetarian for the last two years, I sometimes struggle with healthy and filling options. The vegetarian plate was not only filling but very savory, lots of vegetables and great flavor.

Sopes Surtidos

A dish that's hard to find, and Casa Guadalajara does it so well! I ordered my sopes (little round corn masa cakes) topped with carnitas (pork) and they were WONDERFUL. You can't go wrong ordering anything on their menu, it's all top notch quality and definitely authentic. Highly recommend!

Shrimp & Avocado Crisp Special

My family and I love Casa we stop here whenever we are in San Diego. I have gotten several friends from AZ to stop in and fall in love with this place. Now we all text each other when we are there to make each other jealous we are not there. The Shrimp avocado crisp is my absolute favorite. my husband loves the enchiladas. I so Wish you would open a location here in the Phoenix/mesa area. Can't wait to be back.

Chicken Mole Enchiladas

I dont really like mole but, once I took the first bite, I fell in love with it and the dish. Soft corn tortilla smothered in mole filled with shredded tender chicken and drizzled with sour cream. Served on the side, their delicious mexican rice and tasty fresh pinto beans. 😍

Chicken Fajita Quesadilla

My boyfriend ordered this to go. He was staying at the hotel across the street. It was ready very fast and said it was the best tasting quesadilla he ever tasted. He also got some chips and salsa which were amazing. This is our go-to restaurant when we are in San Diego!

Carne Asada Tampiqueña

Really love the Carne Asada Tampiqueña. Excellent presentation, equally delicious. The chile sauce on enchilada is on point. The carne asada has superb flavor. We just found this place and have been twice in one week. We will be back

Pollo en Mole Pipian Verde

This was very good. I liked the spice it had to it and the portion size is great. We also had an appetizer which is part of the reason I was not able to finish, but it would have filled me up even without the appetizer. I can't wait to go back again next weekend and try another dish. Everything we have tried here has been awesome!

Carne Asada Tampiqueña

I'm a Native of Coronado, I graduated from Coronado High School in 1959. My family owned a ranch on the Border in the Tijuana River Valley. I've been eating Mexican cuisine for 80 years. I retired as a Senior Executive at the US Department of State and my wife and I have traveled "por todo el mundo!" Casa Guadalajara has with our question the fined and best tasting Mexican Food and meal presentation in the entire World! We are"regulars" and also do take out. In short... FINEST MEXICAN FOOD ANYWHERE! Randolph M. West, EdD Point Loma

Carne Asada & Grilled Shrimp

Perfect balance of surf n turf carne asada medium done was the tastiest you can either eat it by itself or as I did cut it up and put on corn tortilla and add guacamole and tomato ( Pico de g ) beans and rice. Grilled shrimp to top it off. I can never eat the whole dish, I always take home for another meal. Forgot to mention all the chips and dip before you even get your meal pared with a margarita which is the best margarita in San Diego. The best atmosphere in their garden to enjoy your meal.

6. Taco, Enchilada, Chile Relleno

I had been gone from SD for 25 years. I took my daughter to Casa Guadalajara for a special birthday, (her birthday is 11/11). We were greeted like we were VIP's. On learning it was my daughters birthday we were seated at a special table near the fountain. The servers were excellent and treated my girl like a princess. The food was excellent; every bit as good as the Casa de Bandini I remembered in Old town. My daughter was convinced I must've known the owner to get the special care delivered. I recommend Casa Guadalajara to all our out of town guests and SoCal neighbors.

5. Two Enchiladas

Chicken Enchiladas are my favorite. I love the enchilada sauce. I would like to see an option where I can order the chicken enchiladas with chicken breasts instead of mixed or dark meat. Can you do this soon?
