I lived in Phoenix 20 years ago and ate at this restaurant once leaving feeling overcharged and sorely disappointed. I revisited in June after a 10 year absence and am leaving the same way. This is in no way authentic Mexican food. That having been...More

I’ve been going to various locations of Garcia’s for more than three dozen years. The food and service has always been good, and my recent visit was more of the excellent same.
