Cannot find a better place to relax and spend a fun time-best Bloody Mary around! Delicious food--affordable prices--friendly servers and bar tender. The guy who manages the place is always on the move to get food out quick. If ever in the neighborhood, don't miss this place!

Loved this place! The service was good and fast and the food was really amazing. My husband and I had an appetizer, margaritas and dinner for $26. Their tacos, Alma's dip and margaritas were fantastic. Will be back!

G I Forum is a Hispanic veterans service club, similar to the VFW. So when you go there you are going to a vets club, not a regular restaurant. It's more like a large hall with a bar and tables.Just so you don't go there for an intimate dinner date. Specialty of this place is Mexican Food although they have... More

My first visit to this establishment and I was impressed with the quality and value of their food. Taco night they offer beef or bean tacos for $1.40. These are delicious, lightly fried corn tortillas filled with seasoned ground beef, shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes and shredded cheese. They have twice the meat of any fast food tacos of a comparable... More

This is a true hole in the wall place that you do not want to miss. Located in the lower level of the local veterans building. The service was quick and friendly. The food is very good. I went on taco Tuesday with my brother. Tacos were only $1.25. I had the fried flour tacos which were crispy and loaded... More

All the items on the menu are a mix of Tex - Mex and Mexican. The Pork Chile is a tasty flavorful hot .Service seems slow but there are many people eating. And a full service bar ,Margaritas are on special too!

I have not been to the GI forum for over a decade. The place has grown up, and is now bright and clean. Plenty of locals are there and that is all I need to know the food is going to be good. This place is not pricey so enjoy the variety of The menu and daily specials. We stopped... More

I was wrong about this place. The food isn't authentic Mexican. The room is a little too well lit. There are some interesting locals who are always there no matter what night we are there. But, we like it. Last time, I had Stacy's Plate. An enchilada, taco, and a small bowl of chili. Loved it!! This is our new... More

This was our second visit to GI Forum. The first was more than 20 years ago. I don't remember it being as nice as it is now. It looks like it has had a complete remodel. This place is worth a try for people who don't like authentic Mexican food like the kind you'd get from one of the taco... More
