Delicious Mexican styled food.

This is clearly the place to be in Apopka, FL. It was very busy with lots of large groups and families which added to the fun atmosphere. The food, while typical fare, was delicious and the chips and sauce were bottomless.

Went for late lunch, not crowded. Food definitely average. Never had carrots in a chicken chiminchanga before! I'm sure used as filler to reduce amt of chicken.... Hubby had fajitas, which he said were good, but seemed greasy.

This is our favorite hole in the wall Mexican joints in central Florida. Though they have jazzed up the place in the last few years, the food is consistently great, fast, hot, and perfectly cooked. The staff works together and are there to please. The margaritas (even the house) are fantastic! Endles chips and salsa will keep you coming back... More

I used to go to this place 3-4 times a month. their drinks USED to be second to none.They got cheap and started substituting gran gala, and Citronage instead of Grand Marnier and Cointreau for their top shelf margaritas, yet they would still charge the same. Their food also suffered in a similar fashion just did not taste as good... More

Garibaldis was our go to place ..sometimes 2-3 times per week to eat, drink and be merry. Then there was the bad review due to a cockroach problem. I have had the stomach, no pun intended, to eat here as regularly, but never waivered on the UNBELIEVABLE margaritas; specifically the Frozen Mango Margaita/sugar on the rim. My 'go to' meal...

Coming from San Diego, close to the Mexican border we had our choice of Mexican resturants. Not so when we moved to Florida, and we tried all of them. Then Garibaldi's opened! We go there so often our favorite waiter knows our likes and dislikes and will order the sustitutions automatically. Garibaldi's is the ONLY authentic Mexican resturant in Florida!

Start with chips and salsa have a great flavor, a bit hot. The fajitas deluxe was very good and price was average. The dining room was very loud and eating solo, I opted to sit outside which was nice.

The family and I stopped in after a recent visit to Altamonte Springs. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating. It was very hot outside, so we sat inside. The restaurant has a bar area and separate dining area. The decor is modern and the restaurant is very clean. The food is really good and authentic. My only minor complaint... More
