I wasn't expecting how spectacular my dinner was! $10 and I got a huge Chicken Mango salsa Quesadilla and rice and beans. YUM! Definitely going back again for more! Quick courteous service. Pleasantly surprised: expected average and got GREAT!

We have been going to Garcia's long enough to see to see their other restaurants open and close, but the Elmira location remains. Amazing food and friendly staff. Be sure to try the Carne Asada tacos or Tamales.
