One of the most popular Mexican restaurants here in metro Tucson has finally opened its brand new location. While the announcement for the new restaurant came out several months ago, the new destination is now finally open and serving the community of Marana. 

The original Guadalara opened in Tucson back in 2002 and has since expanded to include additional restaurants in Oro Valley and elsewhere. While the individual restaurants were split following the divorce of the owners, that hasn’t stopped the former husband and wife couple from opening additional destinations. This now includes the Guadalajara’s Grill and Tequila Bar in Marana. 

Oro Valley has seen the majority of restaurant growth and development in recent years as the population of Tucson’s western city continues to expand. This has, in some ways, prevented some growth from taking place further out in communities like Marana. However, this new restaurant makes not only an excellent destination for locals, but also for travelers driving between Phoenix and Tucson who might want a place to stop and grab lunch along the way. 

Guadalajara has long been known for its table-side salsa, as well as some of the freshest prepared guacamole in town. There are also over 100 tequilas to choose from, so whether guests have a favorite, or they’d like to sample tequilas from around Mexico, the sky's the limit. 

The new location can be found at 5955 Arizona Pavilions Drive. This is a short five-minute drive away from I-10. The restaurant also offers phone-in orders, which is perfect for anyone that is driving along and yet who doesn’t want to stop in for a sit-down meal. 

The restaurant officially opened its doors on January 7, so for fans of the other Guadalajara and who are in the neighborhood, there’s never been a better opportunity to stop by and check out the new location (which is smaller than the other restaurants). The hours of operation run from 11 AM until 9 PM, Sunday through Thursday. On Friday and Saturday, the restaurant is open from 11 AM until 10 PM. 

Seth Holzman owns the new location and also owns the 4901 East Broadway and the 750 N. Kolb Road locations. While Emma Vera, Seth’s former wife, owns the 1220 East Prince Road and the 7360 North Oracle Road restaurants. This is why there are generally small differences between the menus found at the individual restaurants, although both do share a number of similar items.
