We enjoyed the food, service was good, and reasonable prices. Kind of hole in the wall, family run place. The taste was authentic Tex Mex.

If you go to San Marcos and don't have Garcia's at least once you have cheated yourself and now with the 2nd location on RR12 your just one exit down from the outlet mall. I really like that they employ a lot of local college students to help with school expenses. Beware though if you can't handle spicy stay away from the green sauce as it's not for the faint of heart. I suggest anything they have on the menu as it's all good, Cathy and I always take chips and salsa home with us and she loves the green sauce too.

Garcia's on Wonder World is close to home and we used to go there a couple of times a month because of the convenient location. The last two visits have not been up to par; we tend to order chicken dishes at mexican restaurants, and enchilada and chalupa dishes have been incredibly dry. The chips/salsa are always good and the service is prompt.

Garcias is a San Marcos standard that produces standard mass produced Tex Mex. While is not bad is simply not up to the standards set by Herberts or Don Lorenzos.

Warm chips and great tasting salsa is a great way to start your meal. Excellent other choices on the menu.
