Great food, poor service.

My aunt and I visited Casa Garcia's for dinner last night. The food was great as usual. However, the service wasn't so good. The waiters were on their phones laughing loudly and making a disturbance. They wouldn't leave their phones unless someone came in and needed to be seated. The waiter my aunt... read more

Food is always fresh and while there are places to sit I have normally had take out when in the area. Great value for the money and the flan is homemade.

I go here to eat during the weekend with my girlfriends for lunch. We only have an hour and can get in here and out in time to make it back to work. I make my meal into supper also because they give me so much. It is just as good heated up as it was the first time.

My husband and I along with our best friends visited Casa Garcia a couple of days ago. All of us eat here quite often - we've never had less than excellent food or service. We can go out of town, eat out and seems like more than 1/2 of the time we get sorry service and food that would rate... More

Over the Christmas holiday, we went with family to a Mexican restaurant in the Atlanta area. I do the same thing I do at every new Mexican place I go to--I order the carnitas (if they have them). EVERY time, they are dry and often not very flavorful. So, last night after returning home, we HAD to drive to Casa... More

After frequenting this restaurant, whenever we want Mexican food, we make the drive here if at all possible. We live about 45 minutes away and pass up several other Mexican restaurants to come here. Why? While the menu appears on the surface as typical of other Mexican places, the food here is just different. It's fresher and just overall tastier;... More

While the chips and salsa and most of the food is good here; half of the time, we don't get what we ordered!! Thus, we have to wait while they make what we did order, or just eat what they give us. Also, they don't always keep the wine selection stocked. They told us to order margaritas!

It's the usual mix of combo platters with a dab of refried beans, a spot of yellow rice, and a heavy hand with the salt shaker. Execution: good to very good. I wish I could more accurately give 3 and a half stars. Of note: Spinach burritos for the veg. people, generous shrimp count in the shrimp diablo, respectable pico... More
