The service was the highlight of the visit. Great job guys but otherwise food was average and decor was ok as well. The drinks were good. The service was fast. Food tasted ok. Could have done a better job with presentation.

Garcia's is one of our favorite restaurants in Cortland area. The food is authentic, delicious, large portions and great prices. The staff is super friendly and accommodating to their guests. Get a margarita, they're the best around!

This is my first visit to the relocated venue. The food was wonderful as always, atmosphere is casual, and wait staff was friendly. We went early on a Sunday evening so it was pretty quiet

Nice Mexican food at a reasonable price. The only thing I really didn’t like was they didn’t bring very much chips and salsa to the table and if you wanted more when your dinner arrived, you had to pay for them.

I recently found out that the restaurant had moved from their previous location on Route 281. Originally I thought they had closed. Wanted to have authentic Mexican food. We were not dissapointed. We started with chips and salsa. I ordered the bureto macho and it...More
