I just do not get this places' popularity. THe owner has an attitude having taken over from his parents, the service is only fair and the portions very small. Its only because of the fact that there are so few restaurants on this end of town that this place stays busy.
We tried it because we were getting hungry and wanted to eat something before shopping at Sunflower Market. Overall we weren't impressed. Sorta ugly building, very average food, slow service. Now we now better.
Pros: Chips and salsa are good. Cons: The meats they serve, chicken, pork, and beef are of somewhat low quality. We went to Guadalajara Grill two times. First time I had their chicken mole dish. Not good at all. The chicken they used for this dish was obviously strips of the frozen variety. Honestly, the chicken reminded me of the same stuff that's on a fast food salad from McDonald's. The mole sauce? Terrible. The next time, and last time we went, I had carnitas. The meat just didn't have a good fresh taste. Oh well!
Disappointing food. I ordered the mimi chimichangas. They came out looking like little chinese egg rolls and were not so good. I forget what my wife order but she said it wasn't all that good either. There is a La Placita in Green Valley (no affiliation) that is always good whenever we go.
The best part dining here are the frozen Margaritas. The food does not merit the wait, not much different than street fare.
A disappointment. Major problem with portion control. The famous carne seca platter came with a 1/4 - 1/3 pound portion of beef not the 1/2 pound as listed on the menu and the sides have also shrunk. The pozole stew was too much broth.
