I honestly do not know where these great rave reviews are coming from, but let's be real....this is not delicious Mexican cuisine. Coming from a restaurant management background, I know authentic and I know fake. This is fake as it gets. My spouse is of Latin descent and I am very familiar with any type of Latin cuisine. Server was... More

Good option for TexMex. Great bean dip and salsa is complimentary with chips to start. Hard to spot in the corner of a strip mall. Service was a bit slow, but it was busy. I would go back.

My family and I love eating here. The salsa is really good. The margaritas are very good and pretty strong!! The service is almost always good as well.

Arrived and was told 30 minute wait, was seated in less than 5. Food came quick and was all cook perfectly. Never had to ask for a refill. First time myself, but the rest of the family goes frequently for lunch, I'll go back.

We have been regulars at this restaurant for years and never thought to write a review. Friday nights are always very busy, parking can be difficult and depending on the size of your party, an hour wait time is not uncommon. The bar offers some relief in that you can enjoy some of their famous bean dip, salsa and chips... More

My aunts have eaten here for years, but I’d never visited, so on my latest business trip to Metairie they took me to Casa Garcia. The place seats many people and although we came in at 7:30 on a Friday night – and it was very busy – they were able to seat us quickly. Our waiter (Andres) brought chips... More

I went here with my son and a friend. I was unsure of the spot, tucked into the corner of a strip shopping center. The parking was certainly challenging. However, it was well worth the challenge to park. The restaurant is quiet and has nice decor. We were seated immediately and the wait staff was attentive. The place has excellent... More

Remembered this place from years ago when I lived there. the food was very good, served promptly and served hot. Couldn't ask for much more in the area and for the price. Carnittas were... More
