“Great food, at any time of day”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Great Mexican breakfast, including several kinds of migas.
Great dinner plates, delicioso!
Great lunch plates, not quite as large as the big dinner dishes/plates.

Casa Garcias on William Cannon is great! There's a lot of Mexican restaurants
in Austin, of course, but this one is hard to beat! Some evidence of that is the crowds
who come here for weekend breakfast, as well as the large percentage of Hispanic
customers in the restaurant - anytime. (We love Mexican style breakfasts, and they
have numerous items available, including eight types of migas, 20 other breakfast offerings,
plus more types of breakfast (and other) tacos than I can count, and they canbe ordered a la carte.

One great feature here is that you can order breakfast here anytime that they are
open - and any day they are open - unusual.

They have mariachis at 7 pm on Fridays, and if you get the right table, you can watch the
ladies making tortillas most days. The flour tortillas here are great! (We haven't tried the corn tortillas with a meal.)

Everything we have tried here has been very good, both the TexMex and the MexMex dishes. Honestly, we have hardly made a dent in the huge menu.

You're always greeted with a "Welcome to Casa Garcias" upon entering, and this is one of the cleanest looking Mexican restaurants we have ever seen. The décor is colorful without being too garish, and looks freshly painted. The waitresses wear old fashioned "uniforms" - ruffled neckline embroidered blouses and flowing skirts - a nice throwback to Mexican restaurants in San Antonio and Austin numerous decades ago. The service here is friendly and the service is good.

This location of Casa Garcias, a family owned local chain, has quickly become our favorite place for Mexican food since moving nearby in January 2013. It's located in the middle of a large, older strip center on the Southwest corner of William Cannon and Manchaca, facing inward, kind of across from CVS. It's adjacent to a large laundromat (hey, you could do your laundry while you're eating - lol).

They have a large bar area (make that a large bar "room" - it's a big area, located a few steps down from the restaurant - literally). The bar area has a huge bar top as well as numerous tables. It has its own entry from the street, or you can walk to it through the restaurant.

Try Casa Garcias on W William Cannon and Manchaca Road - you won't be sorry!!!

“Food is great and always steaming hot!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We've been here multiple times and it is always the same each and every time. From the wait staff being friendly to the food coming out promptly and always steaming hot.
We live out of town and our kids live in Austin we always meet up and eat dinner here.
Always a pleasure !!!

“Great choice for Mexican food.”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Always good food and friendly service. Nice adjoining bar. Great authentic Mexican food with a down home family atmosphere. You can catch Mariachis there, sometimes, on Friday nights.
