This place was bad. Real bad !
We read the reviews and went.
They were misleading to say the least!!!
We went on Saturday at 3:00 pm and the salsa was canned tomatoes as well as the cheese dip.
My plate was cold as my food. Portions are small. I told the server and he didn't seem to care.
We were one of only 3 tables in the place.......
DON'T EAT HERE! Big waste of time, money!
As for the other reviews, it had to be spam bs. This place is just low low quality.
Taco Bell by leaps and bounds beat Garcia's!!!!
Yum! Yum! Yum! – Garcia's is by far the very best Mexican food I have ever had!
The food is made fresh every morning by the owner. The salsa is to die for...and the margaritas hit the spot every time!
We love the friendly, efficient service and the family friendly atmosphere!
You haven't had Mexican until you have had Garcia's!
Flavor and Quality over Quantity and Salt – We are a family of four, and just ate at Garcia's again tonight (5.24.10). It is to die for. The food is more expensive than the average Mexican restaurant due to better quality. We love Pancho's Mex. Restaurant just like everybody around here does...but more for their prices and volume of food. However, Garcia's is our treat restaurant. Their salsa isn't overly salty like most, but mild and flavorful. People who say otherwise must only enjoy food for the punch of spice and salt. We respect flavor and savory dishes too. I love spicy food myself, but I am tired of over salted, peppery, cover ups that try to make up for a lack of quality ingredients. Yes, it is a bit loud due to hard surface flooring. The service is wonderful, the decor is down to earth nice Mexican style, the food is so much better than all of the rest that we consider it the Outback of Mexican restaurants. You should go for the food, and expect to pay a bit more for quality. You have to try their flaming cheese dip and you'll be hooked for life. I've never tasted anything like it. We've never had any dish that wasn't absolutely delicious.
Garcia's rates high for food quality, taste and service – Love fish tacos? Don't walk, run to Garcia's in Franklin! None other can compare. Located next to Hobby Lobby in Williamson Square, Garcia's gets our family's vote for the best Mexican restaurant in and around Nashville. Their food is always fresh, the service always friendly and the portions always generous. We frequently take out-of-town guests there and they always ask to go back whenever they're in town again; it's that good! Also, in all of the years our family has patronized Garcia's, we've never seen live music, so I think the person with the not-so-great review was at a different establishment.
Best Mexican in TN – I am from California, where there is good Mexican food, and I have tried just about every Mexican restaurant out here. I have to say that Garcia's is the BEST! I have stopped trying other places because I am always sadly disappointed. I will say that the first time I went there I was disappointed in the service, but I gave them a second chance and they won me over. The fajitas are great, the enchiladas are great, the chips and salsa is the best around. Don't let those negative people sway you. They must be nuts because this is the best around, or perhaps they are just a native to Tennessee and don?t know what good Mexican food is. Cozymels! HA! That is generic.
Best Mexican Restaurant By Far!! – Garcia's is the best! I have been a regular on Fridays for the last 3-4 years with my husband and I have nothing but great things to say about their food and service. Food is delicious and always fresh. They have a variety of dishes, but my personal favorites are the fish tacos, fajitas,, shimp Valarta and their home made soups.The salsa is great! Don't be fooled by the negative comments, you have to try it yourself. Now, if you want bland microwabable food, I do suggest that you visit the restaurants mentioned in the comment before this one.
This is a small restaurant, and it is busy most of the time. I do have to say that it is totally worth the wait.
Garcia's ... eh – I work in Franklin, so I eat out quite a bit for lunch. Garcia's is not my favorite Mexican restaurant in the Franklin/Cool Springs area. Overpriced and limited lunch menu. Fish tacos are my favorite item, but entirely too expensive. Much better food at Mexicali Grill or Cozymel's. The chips taste like they came out of a bag ... they don't seem fresh and are not light and crispy. Salsa is ok, could be spicier. Cheese dip is good, but again, could use more jalapeno. Service is not very fast. If you're in Nashville, La Paz in Green Hills is a much better Mexican choice or La Hacienda located on Nolensville Pike.
Best Mexican in Williamson County! – We moved here after living in New Mexico for seven years and Dallas for 7. We tried out all of the "Mom and Pop" places in town. None of them left an impression that said, "Gotta go back!" except Garcia's shrimp quesadillas and fish tacos. Their salsa and queso are definitely better than the others. The service is friendly and fast. The margaritas are tasty, too!! They have recently added some outside decor that really helps combat the ugly strip mall.
Get there early because they do fill up quickly!! Enjoy!
Best Mexican in Nashville - BY FAR! – I've lived in the Nashville area for nearly 20 years and Garcia's is BY FAR the best Mexican food in the city. Don't let the "tin foil review" disuade you from giving it a try. You WON'T be sorry!
The Best Mexican Food and Atmosphere!!!! – I visited Garcia's for the first time last month. My friends highly recommended this restaurant to me but I had not had the chance to go before. I was VERY IMPRESSED WITH FOOD, and the friendly staff! I decided to try their Shrimp Fajitas and boy were they delicious!! I also had some flaming appetizer that you eat with tortillas and it was also great.
I highly recommend this place to all. The prices are reasonable and the portions and flavors are awesome.
In speaking to the owner;I found that it is family owned and they take pride and delivering good food and service. I will be back!!
