Quality ingredients and homemade food. The best ceviche in the Nashville area.

“Good food and decent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2009

Went to Garcia's on 6/20/2009 and sat outside, which isn't the best because a lot of people wait to be seated outside, but it's not bad. Chips were standard fair, the salsa was good, but not the best I've ever had by any means. The guac was very good and fresh. Wife and I split the mixed fajitas for 2 (chicken, shrimp, pork, steak) and it was very good. Really liked the pork and shrimp. Served with sour cream, more guac, pico, tortillias, beans and rice. Nice touch with the feta in the beans. We'll return here for sure.

“Above average Mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2009

Garcia's is a little different Mexican restaurant. They are not your typical Speedy Gonzoles order by number dime-a-dozen Mexican restaurant. Everything is fresher and is not mass produced. The salsa is fresh, the beans are not from a can, and the meats are not cooked to death. Service is ample and friendly. The atmosphere is great. I recommend this place over the competition.

“Fresh Mexican in Franklin!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2008

Garcia's is definitely not your average Mexican place. Don't come here looking for bland refried beans and everything covered in cheese.

However, if you are looking for fresh Mexican food to inspire you, this is the place to be. Their seafood dishes are always good; try the fish tacos. The black beans are flavorful with just a touch of feta. The salsa is fresh and is just one more reason to enjoy lunch or dinner there.

Be forewarned--if you go for dinner on a weekend, show up early or be prepared to wait.
