A Taste of Mexico

In honor of Mexican Independence Day, and my craving for guacamole getting out of hand, a trip to my favorite Mexican restaurant Garcia’s was in order last week.

A favorite among Mexican-Americans and enthusiasts alike, Garcia’s boasts an extensive menu including a variety of tacos, tortas, flautas and enchiladas. Essentially, there is something for everyone.

Having been here several times, I stuck with my favorite dish: corn tortilla enchiladas filled with mushrooms and spinach served with rice, beans and a healthy (or not) portion of melted cheese. Vegetarian friendly and completely delicious. My dinner companion chose to order the combination plate that included a serving of flautas and beef tacos with a side of rice and beans.

We started our night sitting on the patio, but the rain threatened our plans and the Garcia’s staff very quickly ushered us inside and to a table by the bar. The service was just as great as the food.

Whether you’re looking for a new spot for date night, lunch with friends, a late night bite or just somewhere to beat that Mexican craving, Garcia’s is definitely the place to go. The fun and casual ambience is great for a relaxing evening, and the food cannot be beat. Added bonus- Garcia’s is located just across from the Lincoln Square fountain, a great place to walk off some of those just-devoured chips and salsa.

Garcia’s Restaurant is located at 4760 N Lincoln ave. Open Monday-Thursday 10am-1am, Friday 10am-3am, Saturday 10am-4am and Sunday 10am-12am. Metered street parking is available on Lincoln ave, W. Lawrence ave, as well as on surrounding side streets.
