We have been there a couple of times. On the plus side, there is a takeout window and covered outdoor seating. But the service is lacking and they seem to have a knack for messing up orders. It's an an ok place to go for a filling me, just don't plan on being wowed by the quality or the ambience.

Garcia's is a nice local Mexican restaurant. Always a nice crowd. May have to wait a bit on Saturday and Sunday but they will seat you as fast as they can. Outdoor dining if you prefer. Green enchiladas are tasty as well as tacos and tamales. Chips and salsa are good. The staff is friendly, fast, efficient and prompt with... More

Food is always hot and good. Atmosphere is a little cramped. Reasonably priced. I have had to wait for a seat at busy times.

The food is always great and the waitstaff is always willing to go the extra mile to make the customers happy. I used to live down the road in Kyle, but we always went to Garcia's because it was worth the drive.

Wonderful food from a small restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal even though it was outside my norm. On our friends suggestion, we had the yellow queso and It had depth and character! It was not at all the thinned out nacho cheese from a pump with canned jalapeños that is so prevalent everywhere. The enchilada special was amazing and I... More

Not a huge fan of the normal Mexican food, but the second or third time I ate here, it was all about the Fido, carne guisada, and refried beans. Love the food, and the staff is the best I have ever had. Truly love it and eat it.

Lots of choices in town, this one is great! Tried the others and was pleasantly surprised as our last hope. Service was quick, patio was great on a temperate day. Always on the hunt for good tortilla soup, and found it!

We went the first time for a late lunch, not very busy, were seated right away. However, it took about 10-12 minutes to actually get a menu and only because we asked for one. Thank goodness they have tasty chips and salsa. We ordered and the food and prices are great. No fancy stuff just good cooking. Second visit, went... More
