We visited Cancun for one week and had a wonderful vacation. We tried local restaurants, which were good and reasonably priced, but one day, while in the nightlife section of Cancun, we decided to stop in at Carlos & Charlie's early in the day for lunch. I knew it was touristy, but this restaurant takes it to a whole new... More

We stopped in there after shopping to have a drink. Nancy might have made the best margarita I've ever tasted and it was less than $7.

We stopped here for a late lunch after shopping at Mercado 28 in Cancun. The drinks are ice cold however the service was sub par and the prices were quite expensive for simple foods such as tacos and quesadiallas.

Incredible atmosphere where the servers dance, sing and deliver an amazing experience. The food was Excellent (especially the grande nachos) and it is easily the Most Entertaining dining experience My Wife and I have 'ever' had! We will definitely return next year during vacation.

This place is the definition of a tourist trap. Food is average at best and extremely overpriced, there's girls walking around asking you to buy shots every 5 minutes, there's a girl making balloon hats and animals and expects a tip when you didn't even call her over, the waiters are pushy and keep pressuring you to order more, and...

The prices are way to high considering the menu, and I guess if the food was good it would be ok but the food was horrible. It looks like a fun place and Maybe if you just want to party ant not eat you might enjoy it but to be honest the drinks weren't really good either. I really don't... More

We took our daughter here since it was our first time in Cancun so she could see what all the ruckus was about. It was ok, just crazy atmosphere, obviously loud and chaotic.

Would recommend trying this place for a great time out. Staff is entertaining and always getting the crowd involved. Food and drinks are good. Not to badly priced.
