This place has closed down. A sign out front says that a new restaurant called "El Coyote" will be "coming soon". I personally won't miss GARCIA's much and I look forward to trying its replacement.

Traditional Mexican style food that is consistently tasty. Great frozen drinks and fun, upbeat atmosphere. We've been going there for years. Good neighborhood place.

Came for lunch - should have known when noone was in the restaurant. The food was bland, the refried beans diluted, and overall one of the worst Mexican restaurants I have been to - a paid quite a high price to boot.
