Upon entry, hostess took us to rear dining room. We asked to be seated in front area where more people were seated. Startled, she dropped menus on floor and asked someone else to seat us. Our waiter was rude, short and offered no welcome. None of the orher stafff offered greetings or smiles. Food was medocre. All In all, I... More

Fantastic Mexican food. Took the family and we were all satisfied. Nice facility. Busy staff, but the excellent food conquers all.

This is basically a local version of Chevy's. The walls are brightly colored and the interior has that stereotypical Mexican decor. The service was good and the bartender was friendly. However, the food is just not that good. The chips are thin and stale, the salsa is bland and watery, and the food is subpar. There is nothing authentic about... More

Came here to eat supper with the family as a party of 7. We were seated quickly and the service was excellent. The menu is easy to read and has several choices to choose from. They also have an open bar that makes a very good strawberry margarita and chiton. They have 3 salsas to choose from to go with... More

We used to live in Amarillo and this was one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. I insisted that we eat here as it had been a few years since we were last there. I always have their signature dish which is Tacos, rice and beans. Excellent! Love their hot sauce and chips. Service wasn't that great this time. It was... More

The restaurant was very easy to find and very welcoming. The service was friendly, fast and pleasant. I was very pleased with the quality and porpotion of food. The variety of salsas were very nice and the chips were freshly made. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area or just passing by. Great find!

We happened upon Tacos Garcia on the way to Ruidoso. We stopped again on our way home. My husband had the Puerco de Chile Verde and the Barbacoa. He loved both. Servings were ample, spicy, and hot. I had fajitas both times. Loved them because they come with grilled sweet red onions and NO green peppers. Don't order the queso... More
