Having been familiar with all of the various outlets that Garcia's has had in Matamoros and Nuevo Progresso for the past fifty years, it is literally an INSTITUTION for us. I have had the good fortune to have known the old man and his two sons, and there is not a finer breed to be found anywhere. Godspeed to them,... More

Seems they don't like Winter Texan's much. Downstairs they have chained the bathroom doors closed. Food isn't to bad. Won't go into the joint as they don't care much for Winter Texans. Spend our money at business's that like us.

This is just a plea to the owners of Garcias! We always loved your restaurant the very best in Progresso!! We really miss it and wish you would reopen in. I know that is easier said than done - but just know you have fans out there rooting for you !!!

Nuevo Progreso has had a lot of ups and down over the last 10 plus years, but Garcia's seems to maintain. The service has been excellent and the food is usually good. Your waiter has a number to assistants to deliver your food and drinks quickly. I had a group of 12 friends yesterday and no one had to wait,... More

My companions and I recently had lunch at Garcia's on a day trip to Nuevo Progreso. I had the Mexican sampler plate with a taco, enchilada, tostada and tamale. It came with a cream of bell pepper soup that was really good. My meal was $9.95. My companions all had the simple $4.95 taco plate. We all enjoyed our food.... More

Went for lunch last week on a recommendation of a friend. The restaurant was on the second floor of the Canada Store, on the main street, a few blocks from the border. Very open, clean and well kept. All staff were dressed in Mexican attire, and very polite/courteous. Prices were very reasonable, and the menu had plenty of choices. I... More
