Can't say enough this place. Authentic Mexican food. All homemade. Always fresh & hot. Awesome staff too. Margaritas are excellent. Only 2 blocks from our house. ?

Excellent food, service and establishment. On top of the great food, this place is super clean inside. We were greeted immediately when we walked in and quickly seated. We ordered guacamole and cheese dip for starters, in addition to the complimentary chips and salsa provided when we were seated. The chips were warm and the appetizers were great. I loved the Garcia's margarita. It had fresh lemon, orange, and lime juices and was not made from a mix. For dinner, I had the Enchiladas Pablanas and they were so good. The pork was cooked perfectly and had a nice flavor. My husband ordered Garcia's Plato (recommended by our waitress) and it did not disappoint! It came with carne asada, chipotle chicken and bacon wrapped shrimp. There was a ton of food and everything was really, really good. We had a great experience and the food and margaritas were fantastic. It's a short drive for us, but we will definitely be back soon!

Excellent food and reasonablely priced. You will get enough to fill you up and probably more. Love their homemade pico de Gallo. A recipe you will not find anywhere else.

The owner are fantastic and work the restaurant and they are the friendliest, professional, businesslike people. The food is out of this would. The atmosphere is great. All in all this restaurant deserves a 10 on a sale of 1 to 5!

Service was great - the front of house staff is both pleasant and efficient. The food was pretty good and reasonably priced. My only gripe is with the lack of seasoning on my beef carnitas. It was tasteless until I got them to bring me actual hot sauce and some lime wedges. Then it was great. I assume the cook just forgot to hit it with salt and lime juice - and even if the lack of seasoning is normal it's an easy fix. I am used to California Mexican food and in Cali this would be "pretty good" but here in Iowa it's probably the best in the state.

Great variety of Colombian and Mexican inspired dishes. Huge plates come out with your dinner, loaded to the brim with food. You will leave full, trust me. Also, ask for their hot sauce, it will make your lips numb after awhile with great flavor taste.

Who could have guessed that one of the regions best Mexican restaurants could be found in small town Iowa? Incredible food, great service and reasonable prices and only a half hour drive east of Omaha. Our new favorite. I always say you can tell how good a Mexican restaurant is by their rice and beans. Garcia definitely lived up to that, and then some.

My meal was absolutely delicious! The portion of food I received for the amount that I paid for was more than generous. All the food was fresh and served out very quickly with excellent service.
