Garcia’s in Chandler is conveniently located in a strip center off S. Arizona Avenue. Arriving at about 5:45 p.m. on a Sunday we had no trouble finding parking spaces. We were a party of six and had no wait to be seated in an alcove...just off to the left of the entry. The ambiance here is fine with typical southwestern décor. The restaurant is not overly noisy so we had no trouble holding a conversation. Karen, our server, brought out three baskets of chips with salsa and Guacamole Dip before she took our drink orders. Donna ordered the House Chardonnay by the glass. Our server brought one of the largest glasses of wine we’ve seen. It was estimated to be nine ounces where a normal glass is four-six ounces. What a deal! Donna enjoyed the Lite Chicken and Spinach Quesadilla and said it was very good. My Southwestern Enchiladas were very good too. I appreciated that the refried beans were not overly salty. Others in our party had the Chicken Fajitas, Fish Tacos and Pick 2 combo. All dishes were hot when delivered to the table and good. The Fried Ice Cream was a nice ending to the meal. We passed this dessert around until the plate was empty. Very good. The total cost for the six of us was $86.50 total (after a $10 off coupon) plus gratuity.More

Went to this venue with a friend who lives locally. It was Happy Hour so we sat st the Bar and had Quissadillas which were freshly made with various types of fillings, together with corn chips and Salsa. The House Margaritas were very good and...the whole experience was brilliant. Paula the host made us feel very welcome as did the locals. Will definitely return.More

We were visiting from out of town and found the restaurant similar to what we find in the Mexican chain restaurants here in Minnesota. Food was tasty and plentiful but not particularly special. Service was good and the place has a lively upbeat vibe.

Service was great! Food was good! We very well priced Happy Hour Margaritas but they were very weak with hardly any alcohol in the drink🤨. Everything was pretty good until I went into the men's room, it was the dirtiest filthiest mens room ever. Of...course I've been into dive bars and biker bars and sleaze joints that had dirty restrooms but that was to be expected but not in a restaurant like this!!More

My husband and I go to Garcia’s quite often. We love the happy hour. Their chips and salsa and bean dip are spot on. I don’t believe either of us had ever had a bad meal at Garcia’s. The waiter/waitress service is typically very good....We would definitely recommend Garcia’s.More

I was talked into going to Garcia's again during our recent visit to Chandler by my in-laws. They for some reason like this place and I'm guessing because the food is cheap and they are on a fixed income. This was my second visit and...I could have written this same review from the first visit 1 year ago. The service was horrible. Four out of the Six orders were messed up and the waiter blamed us. There was so much cheese melted on everything it was terrible. No prices on the menu for their various upper end Margaritas. I will not visit again.More

We went here for lunch after church with a large group of friends. The service was excellent! Our server kept our drinks filled without having to wave her down and the chips and dips were renewed until all our party arrived. My husband and I...had the chicken fajitas which were excellent. The portions are generous and everyone enjoyed their food. Definitely recommend going here.More

While our service was fine our food came to us cold. They were busy as it was a holiday and perhaps that explains. We will not be eating there again for a long time if ever.

Met friends for dinner on a Thursday night. The restaurant was quite busy but was seated within 15 minutes. Wait staff was friendly. Food came out timely and everyone enjoyed their choices. Only complaint we were sat against the wall of the kitchen and heard...very distracting sounds through out our meals!More
