    The table side salsa and guacamole was amazing and the lady who prepared it was so sweet and attentive! Our food came out in a very timely manner however our sever was at our table for a total of 5 minutes the entire time, he seemed like he did not enjoy being there and lacked when it came to the little things such as refills and bringing out the correct drink or answering questions regarding food. everything else was amazing the server just really ruined the whole mood!

    Food is very good. I must say though that service is not great. We sat at least 15 minutes before anyone greeted us. The first server was actually the salsa lady and we had no water but plenty of chips and salsa. I think the problem is the management is poor and the servers aren't efficient.

    Very busy restaurant. Table side salsa and guacamole. Service was good considering he was sat with a very large group of soccer players shortly after we got there. Food was great, will go back when we go back to town.

    First, we accidently went to the wrong one on Kolb instead of the Broadway location, however we were able to get seated without reservations quickly on a Friday night despite it being teaming with patrons. Our server was great (Emiliano ?? who was a former chef... very friendly and helpful). Once we ordered, we got our drinks right away and our dinner order came quickly as well. Good proportions and very tasty. Our party of 3 hail from south Texas and know good Mexican food when we eat it. This was very good. Two of us got the Enchiladas Verdes and couldn't believe the amount of good quality shredded chicken that was in each enchilada. One issue was finally resolved. We were seated back in a corner which allowed for me to park my rollator without it getting in the way of anyone. The isssue... apparently we were not assigned to any particular wait person. Even though the lady who makes tableside salsa showed up quickly and made us some very tasty salsa (she does this for tips) to eat with the chips that had been delivered seconds after we were seated, no one brought us water, cutlery, napkins, or menus until I got the attention of another wait staff member. Once we were assigned a waiter, everything happened quickly after that.

    We are long time "Guad" diners but we usually go to the Kolb location. Just for some variety, we came back to the Broadway restaurant and were we ever happy we did. The service (from Jorge, our Server, and Elsa, our Salsera) was superb and the food (salsa, fresh guacamole, carne asada tacos, chili-stuffed chicken, and shrimp con arroz) was outstanding! We may just keep on coming back here instead of Kolb.

    I called the restaurant to confirm my reservation and to confirm the time they open since the website showed them opening at 11am, however that slot was not available to make a reservation and the restaurant would not even be open for my 10:15 slot. The restaurant stated they do not accept reservations for the weekends, so we chose to dine elsewhere.

    Music was a little loud for dining conversation. Server got off to a slow start (busy serving other tables), but was very pleasant and attentive once he got going. Our food took a little long coming out of the kitchen for a lunch order.... but it seemed a big party or two tied up the kitchen.

    We were the only diners in the restaurant when we arrived yet our waiter acted like we were annoying him when we asked for something, he was impatient and always running away from the table. The chili rellenos were terrible, the batter was very thick and heavy. The hominy in the menudo needed more cooking. The decor was beautiful.

    It took an hour for us to be seated and after that when we were seated it took almost 2 hours for us to get our food not to mention the time it took them to take the order in the first place we arrived at 7:00 pm and left almost at 11:00 pm and it only took us about 20 minutes to eat so the wait times were ridiculous

    Our overall experience was ruined by the service. Whilst we appreciated that the restaurant was busy, the waiter for our section came past our empty table many times, menus closed and waiting to order, for more than 20 minutes. We finally flagged down another waiter who had just brought out some food for a table of 8 near us, and he took our order. Once the order was taken the food arrived really quickly. The quantities were generous and tasty.

    Food was good... the tableside freshly made salsa and guacamole was excellent! The service was substandard. It seemed that our waiter did the bare minimum for our table. We were seated for a long time before we were even waited on. He took our order, but never checked in to see how we were doing... whether our food was satisfactory or as expected, and NEVER refilled any beverages. It doesn't seem that difficult to see that beverages are empty or getting low, and that is one thing that is important to me in a server. Past visits to Guadalajara Grill have been better though and I would probably give it another visit.

    The service was not good. - No refills on drinks - We had to ask for eating utensils and plates for appetizers - Plates were dirty - I have a food allergy and my server assured me there was no seasoning except salt and pepper on my meal. This was incorrect. They did correct it. We took visiting family there, hoping for an authentic experience, and were disappointed. In addition, there were young women in the restaurant vaping and not appropriately dressed for a family restaurant. They had clearly come from a pool and were wearing thong bottoms with see-through coverups.

    They apparently don’t honor their reservations thru you -when you get there they tell you you have to wait 20 minutes. they make you sign into a waitlist which they do to even people just walking in off the street it’s no different Then they seat you in an area where it takes a long time for someone to wait on you and all the tables are open. When you ask the waiter he says once you order it’ll be at least 30 if not 40 minutes. After driving a half an hour and already waiting we decided to leave. The last two times we’ve eaten there which was two years ago the service was bad and the food had changed but we wanted to give it another try. Obviously there’s some big failure with their system

    Would not accept our reservation we made through Open Table. Said we had to wait another 30 minutes, then after 30 minutes said it would be another 30 minutes and told us we could go to another location if we didn't want to wait. Then we had a wait after being seated to get any service. After this it was fine but already ruined out night by this point.

    Service was great. Didn't see any of the staff wearing masks so if that is important to you, you may want to go here. I had the chimichanga & it really was not fried hard enough for me. Despite this the food was good. It was really lively & loud in the dining area. The beer available was not to our liking so we just had water. The lady who makes salsa at our table was really good at accommodating our request for no heat in the salsa. The salsa was good. This was a nice restaurant to celebrate. We were celebrating our Anniversary & my birthday.

    This grill was not what I expected. I have visited many of Guadalajara's establishments in Tucson. The one on Broadway was not very friendly, asked for napkins and a few other small items and was ignored. We had to ask more than 2 times for these items. The employees were a bit rude and would not look at you when you needed help. I will not be returning to the Broadway location. I have to give the prince and mountain location a triple 5 star.

    Waiter recommended the large platter (Huapanga?) to share for the 3 of us. Way too much food, but still probably didn't spend any more that we would have for 3 separate dinners together. Food tasted quite salty to me (not to my husband or son). Tableside salsa was fun and great tasting. Beef and chicken on the platter were dry, but our visiting mid-Atlantic son enjoyed the experience of it all. Probably won't go back ourselves, though.
