We absolutely love Garcia's. It is one of our normal weekly lunch stops. Alfredo and his crew serve up delicious food, in record time! Their salsa is great and I would recommend the Yolandas, if you like chicken, or the Speedy Gonzales is always awesome!

Who would expect to find a good Mexican restaurant in a bowling alley? Well, this is it. Actually, the restaurant is in the same building as the bowling alley but with a separate entrance. We've been going for years, ever since they opened, and it's nice to see that nearly every time we go back they've made some change that adds a little more of a "Mexican" feel to the place. The food is excellent, the margaritas are delicious and the service is very good. Our only gripe is that the prices have risen steadily, probably because the place has become so popular. Guess that's the price you have to pay.

We arrived at 2:00 and it looked very sleepy. By 4 the tables were filling up. The service was friendly, the menu varied, the food good. It is a nice find in Elmira.

I had never really had Mexican food before my first visit to Garcia's, and when we arrived, I was totally distracted by the bowling alley, which looked as if it were our destination. We went into the restaurant and realized it was Cinco de Mayo! We had a great time, drank margaritas, won t-shirts, and ate the most amazing food! It was hot, spicy, and delicious! We had chicken empanadas, beef burritos, and chicken nachos with the most amazing guacamole.
I read some of the other reviews that scoffed at the food as not being authentic and the staff as being rude--all I can say is, you must not be from around here. Garcia's is a wonderful restaurant where I always feel welcome.
