Fish tacos

Best fish tacos I've ever had outside of San Diego. Grouper? Seriously? Amazing. The sauce.....amazing. Great service. Great chips, salsa, queso. We go out of our way to go here....for the fish tacos.

This was the first time we dined at a Mexican Restaurant, and we ALL left hungry.... There were 20 of us. In town for soccer games, and we decided to dine here. Disappointed in the service.... we had to ask for refills of salsa, chips, & water. This place is lucky to be as busy as they appear. The people... More

Horrific service. YOU ARE A MEXICAN RESTAURANT YOU NEED TO REFILL DRINKS, CHIPS AND SALSA! Then the food arrived, fajitas and alvacado enchilladas were cold. Nice Rita but cannot make up for crap service and no chip refill (until halfway through the meal, there were 7 of us so that took WAY TOO long). Told the server who spoke English... More

The thing that I like the most about Garcia's is that everything is so fresh. It seems that everything is made from scratch when you order it. It is seasoned the way I like it.

We had the WORST service ever! My mother ordered a vegetarian burrito when she got it and had eaten a few bites she realized half the ingredients were missing so we waited about 30 minutes for the waiter to come back to the table. When he did she asked for the menu and showed him what ingredients were missing. He... More

My friend and I stopped in yesterday after church. The service as well as food was very good. Garcia's offers a lot of vegetarian choices and I really appreciate their extensive menu. It's a far cry from those typical Tex Mex style restaurants. We enjoyed the vegetable enchiladas and fish tacos and also ordered a side of guacamole which was... More

Garcias has a variety of food. Everything we've had we've always been very pleased. They serve, an authentic cuisine. Alcohol also served. Most locations do not have liquor drinks but beer, wine etc. Great for a couple and a family. Both Glasgow, KY and Bowling Green, KY are great. We will definitely go back

I went after TA reviews. I got the tamales Jalisco. I'm used to more authentic Mexican, but the food was good, American-style Mexican. Service was speedy and friendly; menu was impressive with the breadth of selections.

Garcias in Bowling Green is an excellent place to have Mexican food. It is not too far off I-65 so my wife and I stopped and had dinner there one evening on the way back home. The food, service, and value was excellent. The only negative and that is in parts of the restaurant it is a bit too dark... More
