Sam was our waitress, and she was a very sweet, personable lady. Our food was good, correct and in a timely manner. We come here quite a bit, and have not had a bad visit.

The pretty decor makes up for the food that is served. The establishment is clean and the staff was friendly but when the food arrived it was not fresh at all. The refried beans were dried along the edges and the beef enchiladas had no flavor whatsoever. It seemed like our plates had been sitting for awhile before they were... More

Love dining at Don Carlos! Located in Spanish Fort. The servings are extremely generous, a must are their Fajitas with a Margarita. The staff is always welcoming, the manager makes it a point to come by your table and ask about the service. The service is outstanding.
