We ate at Garcia's Restaurant when another restaurant where we wanted to go was closed on Tuesdays. Garcia's Restaurant is interesting in how it is physically laid out, as there is an entrance on Western Ave., and an entrance on Lincoln Ave. The restaurant is decorated in authentic Mexican decor. The staff was friendly and we asked to be seated... More

Needed somewhere to eat at midnight...this was the place. There was a very lively atmosphere. The wait time was minimal (needed seating for 8). The food was great...very authentic Mexican. Although our waitress seemed to have an attitude...and her tip reflected it.

The one thing I dislike the most about using my credit/debit cards to play for a meal? Being charged a tip amount that I never authorized. Garica's is one of those places! Nothing irritates me more. Although it's $0.13 here, $1.14 there, and $0.52 over there, restaurants/service personnel exercising this type of dirty trick to their customer for their own... More

If you enjoy Mexican food and lots of people, Garcia's on Western is the place to go. The block is filled with lots of shopping and eateries, but Garcia's has been a main stay in this neighborhood and the restaurant is clean, warm and the wait staff is awesome. I have eaten here several times as it is one of... More

Went to this restaurant late at night and they were still busy. Good sign. We had the carne asada burrito - outstanding! Could not finish mine as I ate too much guacamole and chips beforehand. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

My wife and I visited on a busy Friday night. We were promptly greeted and seated. Our server provided great service. She checked on us frequently. The food was served quickly considering the large crowd. I would have rated this restaurant a four except for the rip-off house wine prices. A short pour house wine for $12 is ridiculous. Good...
