Guadalajara Cafe is not your typical Mexican restaurant, which is a GOOD thing!! Each dish is prepared from scratch with fresh ingredients whose flavors and textures complement one another beautifully. The service is always top-notch and the owner and his staff are always happy to give recommendations as to which dish to try; I've never been steered wrong! And, as I've not yet had everything on the menu (not even close, actually), I plan on many more visits!

The food is wonderful---listen while the owner tells you about all of your choices! Splurge on a new appetizer!. This is not Tex-Mex. My group of 8 just loved it last night.

Just know that this restaurant has superb true Mexican food in a fine dining atmosphere. The food is excellent. I'll be returning as soon as possible & only wish that I'd known earlier that this gem was in LS!

From Our Editors

Guadalajara Cafe shies away from the Tex-Mex standards found at typical Mexican restaurants in favor of the authentic flavors and spices you’d expect to find simmering in a family cocina. Its chefs attended culinary training in Guadalajara, where they developed a special appreciation for the cuisine of Jalisco, a region that extends from central Mexico to the Pacific coast. They even spice up this Jalisciense style of cooking with exotic ingredients such as squash blossoms, nopal cactus, and shrimp wearing tiny safari hats to create dishes reminiscent of those first envisioned by the Aztecs.

The result of their dedication to tradition is a menu of central Mexican classics such as chilies rellenos drizzled in spicy tomatillo sauce, hand-rolled tamales, and tacos filled with charbroiled, citrus-marinated meats. In her blog Around the Block, Mary Bloch—the author of the Kansas City Star’s restaurant guide—lauds the eatery’s mole, calling it “as good as it gets.” Diners can wash down these authentic morsels with a selection of Mexican beers or tequilas infused with jalapeño, cilantro, and tamarind.
