Garcia's was a treat. I ordered the adovada with red chile sauce and sopapillas. Will order the xmas style next time. The staff were great to chat with and a laid back take a seat and eat kind of place.

35 years ago I stumbled into Garcias with a headcold seeking good green chile and we have been back every week since. If you crave NM food eat here. No fuss. Not fancy but the food is authentic!!!! Come as you are and enjoy true NM food!

Had the chicken burrito platter. excellent and dirt cheap. Wife had appetizer and hers was also world class. The bill was 1/2 of Sadie's and we didn't have to take a whole bunch of leftovers home! We will definitely be making this place our new restaurant of choice in Albuquerque!

Wanted lots of chillies. Did not disappoint. Can get plenty of spicy food. Delicious, traditional options. Save room for the sopapilla.

This is one of my favorite food places in Albuquerque and every time I go to ABQ, I have to come to this place at least ten times! The price is reasonable for the amount of food and the flavors you get. I highly recommend it. Try their different items on menu. Anything I got, I enjoyed.

Terrible service (slow and rude to boot), bad food (burned AND cold!?!), just awful all around. Never again!

Traveling thru NM, stopped here and had a good dinner. The chile relanos were good. So were the sopapillas. I'd go again.
