This is, by far, the best Mexican food I have had in Orange County and Southern California. If you want to eat something you can't find everywhere, the chile colorado is served the way it is supposed to be served! It is delicious. We have never had a bad meal here!

We were on vacation to Disneyland and this place was close to our hotel. The food was okay. It was definitely busy, but that was because the convention center attendants were on lunch break. The margaritas are mediocre, and they only have two beers on tap - and one is Bud Light...gross. Anyhow, it suited our purpose of a quick... More

We really enjoyed the food, it was reasonably priced. The staff was very friendly. Got our food to go, an added bonus was that we got soup with our meal.

A hidden gem nestled in a strip mall not far from Disney, La Casa Garcia is a excellent place for real Mexican food. An expansive menu with traditional cuisine as well as some specials that are clearly family recipes makes it a major attraction for both tourists and locals. The food is very tasty and the portions huge so there... More

Visited here for a business lunch meeting. We had enchiladas and tacos. The food was authentic Mexican, very nicely prepared. They also have a full bar. Slightly disappointed because they didn't have sangria, but the food was great.

A short walk from our hotel finds La Casa Garcia. Located in a strip mall, the outside does not appear like an authentic Mexican restaurant. Nice wait staff. My co-worker decided to take up the challenge of eating a 5 pound burrito. Yes he got chided into peer pressure. I have never seen a burrito this large. Needless to say,... More

I always look for the family owned and operated restaurant. This is within walking distance from the hotels. Unassuming exterior but the food, cocktails and service are excellent! I asked the very professional and friendly server what her favorite menu items are (as I always do). Camarones Rancheras was her recommendation and it was Excellent. Plenty of large shrimp cooked...

Had a group of five here for dinner. Food and service was ok, but nothing special. Margaritas tasted like from a mix and were light on the tequila while heavy on price. I had sea food enchiladas, was not very good, maybe frozen previously as the fish was tough. Good location and ok for a single try, better places in... More

Family owned, with pretty normal Mexican fare, not ranging into moles or anything particularly exotic. The food was pretty good, the beans especially good, but other than that, just solid. Top shelf margarita was good, not great (a bit too sweet). Service was fine.

I visited La Casa Garcia three times during a recent business trip to Anaheim. The sautéed fish entree rivaled ones I have had in Mazatlan and the kitchen happily created one of the hottest sauces I have ever had. It's not fancy, but it offers up a solid yet diverse Mexican food!
