Food was quite good and service super quick, i had the chicken enchiladas with the mole sauce, my companion had the steak fajitas and proclaimed them perfect. The margaritas were quite awesome and the food was brought very fast, not a big fan of the atmosphere, but over all very good!

The food was moderately priced and tasted authentic.The atmosphere was nice as we ate out on the patio in 70 degree weather. Located near lot of other neat shops you can check out before or after you are done eating.

In a town full of "Mexican" food, it's a thrill to know where to find the authentic restaurants. Garcia's is small and sparse (although interesting photos all around). The food more than makes up for the "not so fancy" ambience, and the pricing makes it even more enjoyable. When shopping Carlsbad, it's fun to sit outside on the sidewalk, but be aware that they can't serve alcohol out there. This place has been around forever, in the same family, and their formula for success has apparently been to keep it real. A good choice.

This is a great local spot for dinner or lunch. The staff is friendly ans informative. The pricing is moderate the portions on the large side. The menu is filled with traditional foods not always found in local restaurants.

I found the menu overwhelming but I'm told that it was a smaller menu in comparison to other restaurants, the waiter was however patient and helpful. There were four of us so we shared 4 plates and a salad. We all came away with a takeaway container as there was SO much food. It was all tasty and delicious, even the seafood dish (I'm always suspect of ordering seafood). If you're a Mexican food fanatic you may not love this place, but as someone who hasn't experienced much Mexican it was a perfect introduction.
