Avoid like the Black Plague

This a mexican restaurant that serves over priced not so good and certainly not great food. The restaurant is not any place I would want to go with a date or even solo. High prices on the menu would suggest a restaurant of higher caliber yet when you get in the place and sit down you see a restaurant lacking in so many aspects. Amazing thing is that the american people that I ate there with seemed to think it a good restaurant. I told them that they obviously haven't had great mexican food.
My water smelled funny and I noticed food particles in it. I went into the bathroom and it looked like a gangbanger's paradise. They have tiles on the door for crying out loud probably to cover up the carvings. What decent restaurant pays such little attention to obvious details of cleanliness? I will never eat there again. The place should be shut down. I am not mexican but I have dated many mexican women and have mexican friends who know what real mexican food is about and I tell you this place is not on their list of restaurants to eat at.
If you are even reading this comment and considering eating there I am truly sorry. I feel for you. If you are in to trying really good food, mexican is such a cliche these days, you should really try argentinian ""N"" on Elston Ave and Rockwell. It is an Argentinian restaurant that on Tuesdays has an excellent Brazilian band that plays and the steak there is a slice of heaven imported from South America. You will spend less there and will so much more enjoy the ambiance that Garcia's is so painfully lacking. Or Cafe Bolero that on Tuesday nights has wonderful Cuban food and music and mojitos that taste better now than they did before when the son ran the place. Or make it a night and go eat dinner at bolero's listen to music and then head over to ""N"" as the music ends at Bolero just as it begins at ""N"" Fabulous ambiance and caperinhas. It's no cover at both places. If you haven't done that yet then.....
