We just arrived back home after another great meal at Garcia’s. I ask to go to this place every time that I visit Texas. The food is Tex-Mex soul food. It is fresh, tasty, and plentiful. If you enjoy good tortilla soup and fresh guacamole, this place is a must. Although the salsa could be spicier, the chips are always hot. Their fajitas are a sure bet if you have a taste for Tex-Mex. Try their sassier version with sliced jalapeños if you don’t mind some extra heat! The service is great and the place is always clean.

I never miss a chance to meet my daughters at Garcia's, even though it's an hour and a half drive from where I live. The food is always delicious! I kind of prefer the old site near the square, but the new one out by Wonder World Drive serves the same excellent quality.

If you love lard you will like this place. Everything was either made with lard or cooked with lard. Yuck!

We were looking for someplace special after hot day visiting Texas State and shopping outlets. Garcia's is small and building a bit run down. The excellent service and amazing food made it all worth it. We will come back!
