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
Absolutely love Casa Guadalajara and the staff! Food is excellent. No skimping on the portions. Servers are efficient and friendly. Have a question or comment. . . . Manager Fred is there for you!
These flautas are very large and crispy. Filled with tender chicken. The best I've had in a long time.
Best chimichanga I ever ate large portions delicious
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!
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.
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.
First off hands down to Casa Guadalajara. From the service to the amazing food there are no words to describe how delicious the food is here. I been to a lot of Mexican restaurants but by far Casa Guadalajara is my by far my first pick! The amount of food they give you and the amazing taste of the food I highly recommended eating here! Can't wait to be back !
The food here is delicious and there's something for everyone. Filled up on the incredible guacamole before my meal even arrived. Love this place!
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.
The best crispy fried tortilla holding in the yummy zesty beef and delicious beans. Dip it in sour cream and guacamole for the best bite of goodness ever! A must have when you come to this awesome restaurant!
The best tasting chicken tacos in town!
Increíble food, Beautiful Atmosphere, Great Service!
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!
IT Was One Of The MEJOR PLATILLOS I have ever had Everything was Fresh And Full Of Flavor Even The Margaritas. We're Amazing !! We we're visiting from Inland Empire Ca and it was our first Visit, We Will be returning to celebrate my daughters bday later this month as we were very pleased with the food and the service! It will be worth the 2 hour drive! Familia CARRILLO 😊
This place is great. Always feels like the energy is high and very welcoming. Been coming here for over 18yrs and haven't had a bad experience. Highly recommend this place
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.
This is my favorite restaurant in San Diego I have so many memories I have taken so many people for the 1st time that end up loving it as much as I do we have nothing but amazing experiences and know the stuff by name the food is great we have tried everything in the menu but one of our favorite is macho grande 🥰
Great dish! It's the dish that gets me taking the drive from Orange County! Plus the flour tortillas are the best.
WE LOVE THIS PLACE! Amazing food and what a GORGEOUS outdoor garden area to dine in! Wait until you see the ENORMOUS TREE growing out there! And the Margaritas are huge! And as delicious as they can get... We go everytime we visit San Diego! It's more of an experience... than simply eating food...
Everything was great!
Absolutely delicious and the ambiance can't be beat. We love coming here. It's an awesome place to take out of town guests when they visit. Such a great location. The staff is always happy and friendly. It's our go to when we hit Old Town. Definitely recommend Casa Guadalajara for a great meal.
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. 😍
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!
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
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!
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
I've been enjoying this plate for over 20 years. It's been consistently good. Looking forward to having it again.
The food here is so so good! We come every time we're in town. The food is authentic, portion sizes are huge and the ambiance is very nice. Always a great time!
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.
Very filling and delicious burrito. Plenty to take home. Great customer service.
food was amazing .. I cant tell you how this flavors are all amazing!!
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.
Excellent Dish, Best Authentic Mexican Food I've ever had!!
amazing!! was so wonderful flavors still on my mind!
Casa Guadalajara in Old Town is by far the best Mexican restaurant in San Diego. Their Ensenada fish Tacos are the best fish tacos in town and it's my personal favorite dish that I highly recommend !!!
I ordered this combo to go on from very nice and helpful Julie on Saturday, September 5, 2020 - the amount and quality of the dish is spectacular! So much more than I was expecting fo a to go order, it came in a 9x13 metal container...no joke. Plus a huge complimentary bag of fresh chips and salsa!!! Casa Gudalajara has my heart and my business for life! Erica D.
My favorite resturant and my favorite dish! If youre in San Diego and want a great atmosphere with amazing food you need to go Casa Guadalajara
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?
Probably the best carnitas in San Diego!! Very juicy and huge portions. Delicious with the best handmade flour tortillas in Old Town and probably San Diego!!
