I don't have much to say about this place. For one thing, it is extremely busy ALL the time. If you want to be seated within 20 minutes of arriving, be sure to make a reservation. The drinks are over priced, the food does taste good if you don't know much about mexican food. I reccommend the chimichangas but other than that, not great, a little boring.

Carlos O'Kellys is a big chain ameri-mexican place just one step up from Taco Bell. The food is bland and predictable. The salsa is flavorless. The service is average for this type of restaurant.

There are other more authentic mexican restaurants in town. Try Fiesta Del Sol for better food and maybe Reynaldos for better salsa, though it's hard to find good salsa anywhere. And nobody has good, fresh guacamole or real pico de gallo.

My family absolutely loves this place! The food is great! The margarita in a mug is an excellent deal. We are always seated promptly and experience great service.

I love this place for all of its mexican festivities. The drinks are great and strong. Many nights have gone by leaving me stumbling to my car full of margaritas. Viva Carlos!

My family loves Carlos O'Kelly's Mexican Cafe. Fom the time you arrive and start eating the chips and salsa to the last bite of your meal, this is the place to go for Mexican food.

The menu inclides several combination meals and since I like to have a variety that is what I usually choose. Everything I have tried on the menu has been delicious and arrives in a reasonable amount of time. The food is hot off the frill and ingredients are fresh.

Our young kids enjoy the kids and it helps that this restaurant is family friendly. We sometimes have large groups that Carlos' can handle as well.

We love going to this restaurant. Of course, we have our favorite dishes, but we love to try something new on occassion. The margaritas are better than most places around, and the queso is not to be missed. We always love going to this place with our friends, or just to grab a quick meal.

I LOVE THIS PLACE! The food is awesome. The salsa and chips are to die for! The prices for the food are very fair but the drinks are expensive and weak.

PROS: Great Food
