I've always liked everything about this Mexican Restaurant. Many of the staff speak Spanish, and I love that. Makes the atmosphere better.

More authentic than most Mexican restaurants. Enchiladas, tamalis, all very good. Could be just a bit more flavorful and spicy for those of us who like it a bit hot. The food comes out very fast.

We liked the price and quality of the food. As vegetarians, it is always important for us to find good food and this one fit perfectly. Food, desert, and a drink will cost you around $20 per person. Food comes very fast compared to other places! So, if you are looking for a leisurely meal, you may have to inform... More

I enjoy eating at Garcia's and have done so many times. It is real Mexican not a fast food look a like. Many menu choices at reasonable prices. Fast, courteous service. Good drink service. The restaurant is clean, nothing fancy in decor. But you come to eat what I consider to be authentic Mexican dining

For those of you who are looking for authentic Mexican food, Garcia’s in Cortland is the place to dine. Ted and his staff are outstanding. All are attentive and courteous, particularly Adda and Manuel. If you enjoy Mexican food, bypass the fast food places and enjoy freshly made, authentic Mexican cuisine.

Great food, great prices. The only thing not authentic is the decor. There was nothing in the restaurant that was Mexican or anything else. It was very no frills. The food came out within 10 minutes of taking our order. It was hot and delicious. The server recommended I get my chalupas fried. I took the chance and am so... More

We enjoyed our dinner. Great Mexican food and lots of choices. Fast service. Not fine dining, but clean and comfortable, lots of seating, and tables are nicely spaced out. Great place to bring a family.

We have eaten here so many times I figured it was time to write a review. The food arrives very quickly and Is served HOT! We generally order fajitas...and they are delicious. Have also had the taco salad which is very large. Large Margaritas are huge, and impressive. Generally they are on the weak side-but the one I had this... More

We stopped in while in Cortland and went looking for something Mexican. We stumbled on this place and went in, seeing the interior looked like a couple of places we've been in Tijuana or Reynosa or Nuevo Laredo. The menu conveyed what we understood from the sign outside - this place serves Authentic Mexican food. Do NOT think of Chili's... More
