Waitress was amazing. She was warm and friendly and very attentive. My drink was pretty good as well. It was well mixed and hit the spot. The food was awful. No flavor in the Steak or Chicken Fajita at all. I then ordered the safest option, Chicken Tenders and fries. The tenders tasted Frozen from a TV Dinner and the... More

The food was wonderful as usual and our waiter was great! BUT...the music was really loud and it was hard to hear and visit, felt like it had turned into a sports bar after their move, had more of a family feel at the previous location. When we go out we like to visit, not listen to loud music, that's... More

We went to the new location by Hobby Lobby. Like the new area better. Nice atmosphere. The staff was unusually attractive...I imagine to charm us out of our money ;) Anyway, the food was very good. Service was fast and attentive. We tried a variety and the only dish we didn't like was the fish tacos. The fish was not... More

Went on a week night and thought I would not like it because they didn't have Tex-mex enchiladas. The other sauces they had were very good so I will go back. My husbands burrito was good as well. The only thing that was bad was the cheese dip. Boring and plain. Plan on going back, but won't be ordering the... More

Grabbed lunch with my daughter while waiting for the car being serviced nearby. Place was almost empty. Waiting staff was young but did a very nice job. Food was abundant but of very poor quality. They seem to make their buck on low food cost. I had an enchilada and my daughter had a burrito. Both tasted just out of... More

Carlos has moved from the Mall across the street by Hobby Lobby and Hastings. Menu and food is just as good as before. The new location is more like a sports bar environment. Big bar in the middle with lots of TVs to watch--if so desired. Kitchen is open to the dining area now which was not the case in... More

Our waitress, Bri, was very informative about the selections available. The chips and salsa were less than desirable. Salsa had little flavor. My main entree was ok, but not very filling. Overall just another average restaurant.

I don't like downrating restaurants but the service here is incredibly slow. Free chips and salsa while you wait is a plus, however, the typical 45 minute wait for food is frustrating. If you're not in a hurry then no worries!

At last a restaurant is taking gluten free seriously. Instead of a typed up list of items you can or cannot have, they have an actual menu dedicated to gluten free. Really great items like enchiladas and quesadillas! Kudos to the folks at Carlos O'Kelly's, my new go to place when I am in Manhattan!

This restaurant is connected to a shopping center so it is very convenient but the food was very average as was the service. It also was very, very dark which made reading the menu hard to do.
