“decent mexican food”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We liked the price and quality of the food. As vegetarians, it is always important for us to find good food and this one fit perfectly. Food, desert, and a drink will cost you around $20 per person. Food comes very fast compared to other places! So, if you are looking for a leisurely meal, you may have to inform the waiter who probably will not mind as this place seems to be less crowded. Food tastes fine, but it is not in the five star category.

“Mexican Food for real”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I enjoy eating at Garcia's and have done so many times. It is real Mexican not a fast food look a like. Many menu choices at reasonable prices. Fast, courteous service. Good drink service.
The restaurant is clean, nothing fancy in decor. But you come to eat what I consider to be authentic Mexican dining

“Authenic, Delicious Mexican Food”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

For those of you who are looking for authentic Mexican food, Garcia’s in Cortland is the place to dine.
Ted and his staff are outstanding. All are attentive and courteous, particularly Adda and Manuel. If you enjoy Mexican food, bypass the fast food places and enjoy freshly made, authentic Mexican cuisine.

“Excellent Authentic Mexican Food”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

Great food, great prices. The only thing not authentic is the decor. There was nothing in the restaurant that was Mexican or anything else. It was very no frills. The food came out within 10 minutes of taking our order. It was hot and delicious. The server recommended I get my chalupas fried. I took the chance and am so glad I did. The prices here we very reason. We had 3 entrees and a kid's taco meal and it was $54.00. Would definitely go back here next time we are in town. The only negative thing was when it was time to pay I had to go find the waitress to pay the bill as we waited about 10 minutes for her to come back and she never did.

“Great Mexican Food, great service”
Reviewed 2 February 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed our dinner. Great Mexican food and lots of choices. Fast service. Not fine dining, but clean and comfortable, lots of seating, and tables are nicely spaced out. Great place to bring a family.
