This Garcia's is very different from the others located around Albuquerque. I have to say we walked in expecting the same service and food. We were quickly shown service is no where remotely the same as the other restaurants. our waitress to star did not greet us or seem very happy to be working today. To emphasize this her first words to us were "what do you want?". This in my opinion is not a good way to start. aside from that once she took our order she never walked back to see how we were doing or to bring our chips n salsa. Which never received. it was as though she forgot about us. But I must say the thing that irritated me most was the service and attention she was giving other customers. she was very un professional. my recommendations would be to go to another Garcias because although the service is horrible here the food and the price are worth it at other Garcias.
Lindo Mexico does Mexican right! Incredible fajitas! Excellent service. Always fast, always quality! Great prices also. I go at least once a week. They have an amazing Mariachi band that plays every Sunday at 3pm. They also have Cantadores (singers) that play guitar and sing songs by request every Friday and Saturday night (I think from 6-7pm). My kids love this place! Try the fajitas special if you have a large group. My kids love throwing coins in the fountain in the middle of the restaurant. Granted, the front hostess is beautiful and wears tight clothing, but she is not flirtatious and is very nice. All of the other servers wear nice uniform Mexican clothing.
WOW, this place was awesome. If you want great Italian this is the place to go. I had the ravioli with meat sauce and the flavor was great and it was seasoned just right. My wife and daughters had something similar to a chicken alfredo. They really liked it. We showed up as a dive team and they accommodated us without any problems. More divers showed up and squeezed and our wait was awesome in recognizing the new people and taking care of their orders. Everyone one enjoyed their food. Now it is a little more then your typical Italian food, but for the amount of food that you get and the flavor I would come here any time.
