I don't live in Amarillo, but every time I come to town for a visit, I HAVE to go to Tacos Garcia. They have, hands down, the best chile rellenos I have EVER had.

After shopping at Amigo's grocery in Amarillo we decided Mexican food was in order for lunch. We stopped in at Tacos Garcia; wait staff was very friendly. We ordered the El Monterrey platter which was enough... More

As part of our cross country journey, we stopped in Amarillo, Texas and ate lunch at Tacos Garcia. Service was fast and excellent. The restaurant was very busy and now we know why.

We arrived at the restaurant at about 8:15 on a Wednesday night and had to wait for about 1/2 hour for a table for two. It was no problem for us because we decided to have a cocktail but if your time is limited - get a reservation. The restaurant has a nice setting with the Mexican flair. Most entrees... More

This restaurant serves up some of the very best Mexican food in an area deluged with Mexican restaurants. This is the one we take out of town guests to. The food is absolutely fantastic and the margaritas sublime. Festive atmosphere, wonderful personable service.

The best Mexican food in town for many years. My wife and I almost always get the Chile Rellenos Lampriados and subsitute queso sauce for the regular sauce.
