I have been going to Garcia's on Lincoln since they opened in early 1991. The burritos and tacos are still the same, as is the salsa verde and the pico de gallo., so the recipe is in tact. I must say they make among the best burritos in the city. The best burritos/ tacos I believe are at Taqueria la Zacatecena on the souhwest corner of California and Nelson. However, Garcias comes a very close second. The only drawback is the price. $9.24 for a steak burrito? Did I break a window? The prices for these have risen steadily through the years, that's for sure. They were only $3.75 when they first opened in 1991. I understand inflation, but come on now.....

I have lived in Lincoln Square for 13 years now. Garcia's has always been a favorite. However, I ordered two taco dinners and a side tonight and was shocked when I heard my total was $23.00. Garcia's used to be great Mexican food at a really reasonable price. Maybe the remodel forced them to raise their prices? Still a great place, just not a great value anymore.

I have been going to Garcia's for years! They have recently remodeled so it's not as cramped as it use to be. The food is absolutely amazing. I don't think I have had anything from there that I wouldn't recommend. Their carne asada is alwasy so tender, not chewy and fatty like some other places. My kids love their milkshakes so I finally had one the other day and it was so good! This place has become our favorite polace to go to as a family for dinner. Great Food at a Great Price!!

The to go service was not the best. However the food is great. I recommend the Garcia's Special.

Garcia's is excellent for eatin out on a budget and gettin the best deal on mexican food. the restaurant stays so packed and parking is rare to come by, but the amount of food for the dollar is fantastic. Service needs improvement when you're seated there, but in take-outs they're extremely fast. Love it!

I've stopped eating at Garcia's because it's a little cramped in there. Now I've got them on speed dial and couldn't be happier. On my home from work I order a pickup dinner and it's waiting for me when I get there. I've got it timed perfectly and they've already gotten to know my voice and my first name. I get home with the perfect food and a good movie... bliss.
