I have been here twice now and love it. The food is fresh, well seasoned, and prepared with care. The margaritas and are tasty and full of tequila. The steak fajitas are outstanding.

First impressions: hostess lady was incredibly rude to my family. We brought my parents in from out of state and came here to try a new place and was greeted by Grumpy herself. My dad tried to be nice and she rolled her eyes at us and had a never-ending scowl on her face the entire time we were there.... More

The atmosphere and service were excellent also. Definitely a great place to go. Try the fried ice cream, really yummy.

Arrive early if peak dinner hours Fri/Sat. Quick and accurate service. I love the tamales. The salsa has a little kick and bits of cilantro that make a tasty combo. Loads of easy parking available in huge plaza lot. Outdoor seating is available (view is parking lot) but most folks come to socialize.

I had good food. It felt like I was there longer than was necessary. I would go back if I wanted to sit down and have a long Mexican dinner. Otherwise, I would go somewhere else.

This was my first visit to Garibaldi's in a number of years and while it was great the last time I was here, it has elevated itself to Excellent. Food is served quickly by a friendly staff who take pride in the authenticity of their offerings. My Burrito Rancheros were tasty, filling and the best I've had. The Chimachangos my... More

After the news reports in late May 2014 regarding rats & roaches crawling on or near the food in the kitchen, I will NEVER go there again. I do not care to take the chance of finding a dead roach in my food or having a rat run over my feet while I'm dining....
