Once again a great meal with wonderful service. My wife and I both had a combo of a shredded beef taco and a Chile Rellano. And they were excellent especially the Rellano. We hadn't seen our Waitress before because we go in the restaurant often....More

The ambience of the place is neat. The chips and dips are good. The staff sincere. But the entrees are mostly all alike with different names. The same bland red sauce, the green is also bland. This is just fine for people with sensitive tummies...More

Food was fair. Not really all that good. Service was sketchy at best. We've had better Mexican food at other restaurants in town.

We've eaten at many mexican restaurants and this one rates at the bottom. It's an old Chi Chi's converted to Garcia's. If they only kept the food Chi Chi's had they would have got 5 stars. I had sea food enchilada's which was basically dough...More
