With its busy taco truck in the parking lot, and a record store, jeweler and money transfer business all in the same building, it’s easy to miss Guadalajara Restaurant. But fresh ingredients and authentic fare make it worth the hunt. Meals get off to a good start with chips and some really great salsa and are complemented by huge margaritas, only $3 at happy hour. Menu highlights include hearty sopes (thick, soft masa cakes that are like giant tortillas) with carnitas, velvety chicken mole, tender pork tamales slathered in enchilada sauce and melted cheese, sizzling chicken chimichangas and crispy fried whole fish. Breakfast favorites include machaca (dried beef with eggs, onions, and chiles) and huevos con spicy chorizo. Beverage offerings such as agua fresca and horchata are stellar. Service can be slow at times but is always friendly, and one of the live mariachi bands that frequent the restaurant will keep you entertained. Breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.
