An outpost of made-from-scratch Mexican staples, Cafe Garcia assuages grumbling bellies with multitudinous menu items and a fresh salsa bar. Guests can order up a small bowl of guacamole ($5.50) along with a chimichanga—a large burrito packed with chicken or beef, deep fried and topped with cheese sauce and sour cream ($6.75). Fill an empty belly with a stomach-sized green-chili burrito, which tucks roasted pork sautéed in a mild green-chili sauce into a tortilla blanket ($6.75). Indecisive diners can opt for a combination plate, each served with lagoons of beans and rice. After the camarones ala diabla combo, with grilled and sautéed shrimp in spicy chili-garlic sauce ($9.99), or the chile relleno and onion enchilada combo plate ($8.25), tone-deaf taste buds find themselves serenading incisors with John Fogerty lyrics. In addition to whipping up breakfast from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, Cafe Garcia boasts a kids' menu, with little nibbles such as a quesadilla with french fries ($3.99) or one ground-beef crispy taco with beans and rice ($3.99) for diners ages 12 and younger. Cafe Garcia also offers restaurant-goers an outdoor patio.
