This place had a great energy to pull you in but after being there a couple of hours, I'm not sure we'd return. Service was average but what got me was the resident photographer and balloon clown. They wanted 30 bucks for a family picture and 20 bucks for 2 balloons. They don't even give u a heads up but... More

My wife and I stopped here for lunch while exploring the hotel zone. We were quickly seated. She had water, I had beer. I don't remember now what we ordered, I think it was shrimp tacos and guacamole. What we actually got was a huge plate of nachos and guacamole. I told the waiter not to worry about it, and... More

We visit CNC each visit to Cancun (going on 12 visits). This trip was completely different than all the rest. CNC is no longer a restaurant but rather a club atmosphere, in an attempt to compete with Senior Frogs and Margaritavilla. The only good menu item I've ever had was the chicken fajitas. It was SO loud in there, I... More

We are a restaurant with a fun atmosphere and good music. Nevertheless, it's true that during the night the atmosphere gets louder than in a regular restaurant, but... More

We took our teenage boys for dinner. They loved it and all the festivities. The food was average and expensive but worth the fun of the atmosphere. The guacamole made table side was well worth it!

We decided to take our teenagers to here for dinner while on vacation during spring break. The restaurant's atmosphere and location are great and right in the middle of the hotel zone. It appears that Carlos N' Charlies focus is on making money on guests instead of providing a good meal and service. They were pushy about us buying drinks... More

After a couple of hours of shopping - (OK, being accosted) - at the Flea Market, we were eager to find a place to grab a bit to eat and rest. Carlos'n Charlie's just north of the Flea Market was that place. Servers were exceedingly friendly and helpful. Food was what you might expect from these chains. Competent without being... More
