Guadalajara Mexican Restaurant

8461 SW 132nd St. Pinecrest, FL 33156 | East Kendall/Pinecrest | 786-242-4444

Location Description:

Just off South Dixie Highway, Guadalajara is one of Pinecrest's hidden dining gems. Unabashedly bright décor and an invitingly open layout elevate it above most Tex-Mex eateries. Yes, the expected offerings dominate the menu; anyone familiar with Taco Bell knows nachos, burritos, enchiladas, gorditas, and flautas. But Guadalajara goes a step beyond typical Southwestern cafés by offering accessible, authentic fare. Patrons looking for a light meal would do well with the caldo de rez beef stew, which comes with slices of lime and freshly made tortillas. The poblano fish salad is liberally decorated with Mexican peppers, grilled and seasoned over a bed of tomato and lettuce. The tamales are delicious and filling - steamed cornmeal stuffed with perfectly spiced pork and drizzled with Guadalajara's creamy sauce. Chiles rellenos will appeal to fans of traditional Mexican cuisine; the large pepper is stuffed with meat, fried, and smothered in sauce and cheese for $11. The most impressive dish is the whole red snapper - marinated with spices and onions, deep-fried, and served with choice of sides for $15.95.
