The food gets a thumbs up. We love the white cheese dip along with the chips and salsa. My companion had a cheesy spinach quesadilla which looked great. My burrito was pretty generic. Service was a bit neglectful; we had to wait a few minutes too long for refills on our chips and drinks. The staff was also doing their... More

Every aspect of service and quality exceeded our expectations. Fresh, flavorful and fast. The tacos carnitas and tacos Tapatios are highly recommended. Worth the short drive from I-65.

Unlike pretty much every other Mexican place I've eaten at, this meal was delicious without the feeling that you've eaten lots of greasy food. It was lighter than any Mexican food I've ever eaten. I really liked the family feel throughout the restaurant.

We were visiting the area and all were hungry for Mexican food. This restaurant was close to where we were staying and had good reviews. We were NOT disappointed! The restaurant was clean and quiet so we were able to visit during our meal. We were promptly greeted and seated. The server was excellent - very attentive and sweet. Our... More

Food is still pretty good but this last time the corn tortillas were stale, they forgot our salad and wait staff stayed in back glued to their iPhone ... so maybe head to el maz next time, plenty of Mexican food options

This small restaurant is easily overlooked, but it is topnotch for lunch or supper. It is not a "high end" establishment, but the food and people are wonderful. It's also quiet enough to hear conversation at the table...no loud music blaring away. We've eaten there several times and will continue to do so.

I was here on business with my wife along and we were in the mood for Mexican food. I have a friend who lives in Bowling Green who suggested a few places but when I read their reviews they did not peak my interest. I found Garcia's Mexican restaurant on trip advisor and liked some of the reviews. The restaurant... More

We stopped in at Garcia's for lunch and ordered chicken fajitas and the margueritas that were on special. The food was good on average, but the portions were tiny, including the "special" marguerita that was served in a tiny wine glass (maybe 3 oz.) for $2. The condiments served with the fajitas were tiny--less than a teaspoon of guacamole and... More

The restaurant is nicely decorated and the service was good. The prices were a little high, The food was tasty but nothing special. Having lived for a time in Mexico, we did not find it especially authentic,

This was a pleasant treat after a long day of driving. Very good food, great service, and they gave us small FREE margaritas to try the evenings mix!
