My father and I went there today and the food was horrible.\r
The service was great, but the food was not very apitezing. My father had ordered a seafood buritto, but he said that the "Burrito" looked like a hot pocket. The beans that came

This used to be one of our favorite places to go. The last three trips was like a downhill drive. On our last trip we had to find a place to sit ourselves, we sat in the bar area. The bartender just looked at us. We had to ask for service.

I haven't been there for a few years and had a friend tell me she'd been there three weeks ago and the food was terrible.

I has reservations about going with my friends that night, but went anyway. The service was GREAT! The food was

I love this place. I have been coming here for years and I continue to get fast, personable, great service. The prices always remain low. The bar has happy hour 7 days a week! I would recommend anyone to come to Garcia's. For those who had

I live across the street from this place and won't even go for happy hour. Outside of happy hour the prices are too high for not so great food. Margaritas or watered down, and if you ask for a slated rim you wind up with a ton of salt at the bottom of your drink.

I had lived near here for years never went, decided to go there before Junior prom in high school. They said they took call ahead, but then I had to wait over 30 minutes despite calling ahead. For that long wait, I got a table near the noisy kitchen, and then was promptly ignored by my waitress. The food was pretty bland and overpriced.

The only thing good I can say about it is it looks nice inside, especially when you compare it to hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurants near by (which have much better food.) While I consider atmosphere important, I don't think it counts as atmosphere if the experience leaves you regretting walking in the door.

Go to Rey Azteca a few miles away if you want really good Mexican food.

Garcia's used to be a wonderful place that we weould got to all the time... Great food and service. The last two times were horrible. The resteraunt was very slow and the service even slower we had finished all of our chips and dip before our drink order was taken. We had to clean off our own table to make room by putting our plates on another table. The food was nothing to what I remember it being... We had moved away and decided to come here while we were in town. I really miss the way Garcia's used to be....

Garcia's is close to home and I wanted so much for it to be good - IT'S NOT!!! Over the years, I have been there on a few occassions - this was the worst of the worst! Went for a Birthday Party - hadn't been in a long time.... now I remember why! Service beyond bad! Food is not hot - ordered Tortilla soup - room temperature - no spoon, which by the time the waitress brought it to the table was then cold. Had to ask three times for a glass of water. And, because we were a large group, the gratuity was included in the bill, however, the waitress didn't mention that, so she was given double tip for the worst service I have ever had at any restaurant! Seriously, McDonald's gives better service. I would give them a negative number, but, one star is the lowest you can go! I will NEVER go back. And, for soup, salad and two margarita's - it ended up costing me $35.00....... save yourself!!! Don't go!!!

This is a great place to eat if you're looking for good Mexican food at a reasonable price. The ambiance is very nice and the service is always excellent.

We have been going to Garcia's since it opened. The food was always fresh, presented nicely and the staff was courteous and helpful. The past year the food has lost it's freshness, food put together sloppy and sometimes tortillas over-cooked. The service also is no longer acceptable as the food is brought cold, over-cooked or missing what comes with the meal ie: sour cream, salsa.
Usually there isn't a wait if you go early enough, after that plan on reading a novel. Servers don't return to fill glasses or check if anything is needed. Tortilla chips are greasy and/or over-cooked and salsa is a lot watery than it use to be. Truly a disappointment after going there all these years.

Pros: No pros any longer

Cons: Cold food, meals not completed as ordered, service, lack of servers that service

Great food at a reasonable price. The chicken flatus are excellent. There is something for the whole family. I have been going there for years and will admit that the service CAN be less than adequate at times but give it a chance, it is good food for the money.

I have friends that like this place so I have been there three times in the last few months. Delays in service, cold food and attitude when you complain are not my idea of a good restaurant. After the first time we said... well anybody can have an off night. After two times they had a hard time getting me there tonight. Thirty minutes after seating we had seen our waiter once. We had to ask someone else to find out what was wrong. Ten minutes later the food came and was cold. What good is an offer to re-do the food after fourty minutes. Different weeknights, differetnt waiters, differant managers ... all willing to talk about it AFTER. Don't bother going here... There are plenty other good mexican restaurants in the area.

I have been to this restaurant only once. I went with my family and we had a great time. We arrived at a good time since we did not wait too long for our table. My young daughter was with us (2 at the time) and she ate some rice, tortillas and chicken fajitas.

The place is nice and the food was tasty and hot. The prices are reasonable too. We would go there as a family when we'll crave mexican food once more

PROS: Nice clean restaurant, good food
CONS: none

I loved it at garcias. Irishmen rating mexican food... no wonder. Margueritas are huge and wonderful. Food was hot, fresh and well prepared and service was extremely fast and efficient. Prices are good too. My favorite mexican restaurant in the area, and I've been to them all.
