Living in rural upstate NY it can be challenging to find good Mexican food, but this is it! I have tried most of the menu items but I keep going back to the chimichangas. The waitress was also excellent!

Have eaten here twice in the last few months and both times the food was wonderful. Hot, tasty and delicious. Service was very good. Prices are reasonable. Definitely a good choice for a date night or family dinner.

My family of five enjoyed our meal at this place very much. We all agreed that it was some of the best Mexican food we'd had out, and wished we had a place like this in our home town. My son, who is a vegetarian, particularly liked the fact that there were a lot of vegetarian options - for once... More

Just finished my yearly dinner at Garcia's in Cortland, NY. Great food with a wide variety of choices.To top that off the value for your dollar is great. I only get there once a year because that's the only time I'm in Cortland. If I lived closer I'd be there much more frequently.

I have been going to Garcia's Mexican Restaurant for 1-2 years now. It is the only one I like in the Cortland/Ithaca area. Ithaca does have a "Mexican-like" restaurant, but I have been there three times and have been disappointed twice. The last time I found there taco salad slightly better than average. So, if you are interested in good... More

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
