Good local place!

While visiting the Austin area, several locals recommended Garcias in Buda. I had to try it. I was first impressed over the line of folks waiting for a table for lunch. That's always a good sign. The place is small but has a patio for outside dining (it was a tad cold that day but people were... read more

Quaint restaurant, friendly service. Casual atmosphere. They literally cook for the day - so get here early, they may just run out of one of your favorites :)

The food is ok, not great, but not bad either. The rice was very good, guacamole was excellent. The charro beans needed some bacon & cilantro for flavor. The sauces were good, as was the taco meat. The carne guisada was good as well. I have an issue with the statement on the bottom of the menu that you will... More

The place is quaint and colorful. The staff is very friendly and inviting. The location is perfect and parking is no problem. The food was ok. It was very generic Tex mex food. If I were visiting from another state I would probably enjoy it very much but it was too bland for my taste. The chips and salsa were... More

Good food and the price is right. Friendly staff and really good food. Worth the wait if they are too busy to seat everyone.

The food is good and good portions like the deck when not hot for inside can get tight. Busy during lunch but go early so we can get a seat.

We like this place because it's family/kid friendly, quick service, clean, varied menu and pretty tasty. It's not the most amazing TexMex but works in a pinch when you have a craving. Good chips and salsa.

This was a very nice looking place, cozy looking place. We like taking the family to different places when we are out of town. We are a family of 6 so I figured it would take a bit to seat us on a Sunday afternoon and this is a small place, which is ok with us. We put our names... More

Too bad I have to drive all the way to Buda to get it, but I'm happy to make the trip for their delicious food. The chips sold me right off the bat. Light, crispy, delicious chips filled with little air bubbles, just so good with their homemade hot sauce. Love the queso, too, with homemade flour tortillas dipped in... More
