In the mood for Mexican food, I stopped into the new Garcia's. This is a modern taken on a popular restaurant. Everything feels very fresh, clean and yet has the appropriate decor. I had the frajita steak salad in a tortilla bowl, it was a...very attractive presentation and best of all delicious. The salad was everything I expected from the type of salad plus the steak was fork tender. Service was very good, but I was there for lunch so it was quieter than an evening dining experience.More

Came here for dinner. I ordered the chicken and steak fajitas. It was good. Except, the steak pieces were for the most part too tough to eat. Next time I would order the chicken or shrimp fajitas. Service was poor. Trying to get servers attention...was not easy as he walked by us several times. We never got checked on since the meal was delivered.More

I love Mexican food!! All 3 of us were disappointed! The chips were great! Bean dip was ok, Salsa was mediocre. My husband had steak and shrimp. The sreak was like shoe leather and the shrimp skewers must have been microwaved. No taste! My friend...had a steak burrito, there was mostly onions, a few pieces of red pepper and a few pieces of steak. I had the chicken quesadilla salad. The greens were out of a bag, must have been rinsed because there was a puddle on my plate. The chicken was definitely microwaved because it was one of those precooked things. About 6 beans and a little quacamole on top. The small quesadilla was definitely small, cold and greasy. The dressing was ranch with salsa or something in it, not very tasty at all! Will NEVER eat there again. Total disappointment! Our server tried but he was overwhelmed, very forgetful and oblivious!More

The inside of this new location has been completely remolded and is very nice. Food is good. I had the El Grande fiesta platter. It is a small sampling of various food items. I got a taste of what I would like to order as...a main entree for my next visitMore

Decided to try this new location as we haven't eaten at a Garcia's in 26 years. The chips are super thin, but the hot salsa was very good. I ordered the enchiladas, one shredded beef and one chicken. I had green chili sauce on the...chicken and the red on the beef. Neither sauce had much flavor, but I thought the red was better. The most disappointing thing was that the meat inside didn't go all the way to the end of the enchilada. The chicken enchilada had all white meat inside, but it seriously stopped 1.5 to 2 inches from both ends! The beef was exactly the same. I have never had enchiladas so empty at any restaurant in Phoenix, chain or family type. If I didn't stuff myself on chips at the end, I actually would have left hungry. Very disappointed. I doubt we will ever return with so many other great choices within 5 miles of this place.More

There were 12 of us for dinner on a Friday night. The place was crowded as expecetd but we did have a reservation and were seated promptly. The entrees wsere good and plentiful. The salsa was a disappointment as it was very thin, almost watery....However, the bean dip was excellent. The wait staff got some of our orders wrong and that caused a dining delay and they got some of our tabs mixed up. This is a relatively new location with new staff and I am sure it will get better ovber time. We as a group willgo back again I am sureMore

The new Garcia's Mexican Restaurant has taken over the location on the Sprouts corner. I don't even recall the name of the former restaurant. Garcia's is well known in Phoenix for really good Mexican food. They also serve Tex-Mex and Latin foods. The exterior hasn't...changed much from the former tenant. There is a patio on the northeast side that can be set to serve guests in cooler weather. The interior is well lit with natural light from the many windows. The dining area was open and offered booth and table seating. The bar area is open to the dining area to the right of the hostess stand. Reservations are recommended for large parties and special events but otherwise not necessary. The staff was friendly and helpful. The bar was experiencing technical difficulties with their ticket printer and caused a delay in our drink order. We ordered our food after our drink order but the food arrived first. The owner apologized and got our drinks personally and adjusted our bill for the inconvenience. It was nice to enjoy our meal without being surrounded by dozens of tvs. The tvs were confined to the bar area. The food was delicious as expected. I look forward to cooler weather to dine outside. In or out, you will enjoy Garcia's food and friendly service.More
