When you see the restaurant from the street, you know it's not going to be fancy. But since the parking lot is always full and people are always at the tables, we finally found a time to stop.
The thing people like about La Guadalupana is that it serves authentic food. I'm not an expert on this... but can tell you it's not a Chipotle. So... if you want a fancy lunch or American Mexican food... this is not it. (If you are a good judge of "authentic", let us know what you think of this place!)
We wanted to try the authentic food, so we ordered the chicken tostada, tamales and... French fries. Yes, they do have French fries and my youngest ordered them. (They also offered to make him a kids quesadilla which is not on the menu.)
There did not seem to be many vegetarian options... but if you like chicken and pork, there were a lot of options!
I don't always talk about prices but these were pretty cheap. $4 for the tostada and $2 for each tamale. The food was good... but the very best part was flan.
Also, I read that breakfast is great... so I guess we will need to go back!
