The restaurant is nicely decorated and the service was good. The prices were a little high, The food was tasty but nothing special. Having lived for a time in Mexico, we did not find it especially authentic,

This was a pleasant treat after a long day of driving. Very good food, great service, and they gave us small FREE margaritas to try the evenings mix!

Again garcias delivers the best Mexican food in bowling green. I had the shrimp fajitas and they were extremely good. Also, the service was great.

Let me first say that we are from SoCal and we eat Mexican food at least three times a week, so we have tasted A LOT of really good and not so good Mexican food. But this place was outstanding! Made me wish we had one back home so I could enjoy their Tropical Shrimp (amazing!!!!) and yummy, hot chips.... More

Very friendly staff and good food. The rice is very good. The tables and seats are nice and clean. It's in a very good location. I got a cheese quesadilla and it was amazing! Will be coming back.

The food here is far better prepared than most of the city's Mexican eateries. Black beans were served with a relish of red onion, the Mexican vegetables were diverse and well seasoned. Only the Margarita tasted like a mix. What needs attention is the decor, The pleather is peeling off the chairs, the cabinet in the bathroom was falling apart.... More

My wife and I visited Bowling Green to see the Corvette Museum and take the assembly plant factory tour. We discovered Garcia's Grill purely by accident. We were very pleased with the quality of the service and food. I don't think I have had better Mexican since eating in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Prices were reasonably and we found the... More

We eat at Garcia's regularly. The food is always fresh, tasty, and consistent, and the margaritas are great. Some standout dishes are: fish tacos, fish fajitas, chicken fajitas, and several enchilda dishes (poblanos, rancheras, nortena, etc...). Their quacamoles is very fresh with lots of cilantro. You can substitute the Mexican veggies instead of rice or beans if you wish; these... More

Best of the mainstream Mexican restaurants in BG. Infinitely superior to El Mazatlan or Puertos. The salsa is the star of the show and you can taste it is fresh and made in house. I really wish they bottled and sold their salsa. I would also recommend the puerco en salsa verde.
