After 10 years I returned to Carlos and Murphy for dinner with a few friends. This restaurant needs a lot of updating....uneven floors.....smelly bathrooms and awful food...tasteless and bland.

Our last experience at Carlos & Murphy's was somewhat dissapointing. Unless we have lucked out previous times (came in during happy hour?) the prices seemed way high. A small glass of mediocre wine for over $7??? Food quantities less and just overall seemed overpriced. We have always enjoyed the flavour and atmosphere, but not sure when we'll go back.

I really enjoyed my Margarita and Nachos. My husband had a burrito which was pretty bland. Service was very good and quick.

We usually make Carlos and Murphy's stop every time we are in Winnipeg. This time we found the chimichangas good, not exceptional. Parking was a challenge this time as there was huge ruts in the back streets due to the amount of snow and ice not cleared.

A Winnipeg icon for many years, Carlos & Murphy's is and has been a Mexican hit from the beginning! The food is awesome! The prices are great! And their service is top notch! Located in heart of Osborne Village, this restaurant with it's Southwest Spanish flair, is sure to please! Park your burro and have a burrito! Yum!

It is a cozy (not a fancy) restaurant with friendly staff and it is my favorite restaurant in Winnipeg. Food is also good with reasonable price. Some people say it is not genuine Mexican food, but I like it the way it is! They have great salsa. They also have some deals on chicken wings, if you like them.

Overall this place is so dark and dirty the only thing you should order is a beer that comes in its bottle! I won't be coming back.

We happened to fall on this place last week while on business in Winnipeg. Seemed like a cool joint with cool people and it was but the food lacked any type of originality. The Mexican food was simply ho hum, nothing to write home about. We had chips, guacamole and salsa to start. Portions were HUGE but bland, the salsa... More

Been going to C & M's for years for the best nachos in town (Carlos Nachos to be specific as they have refried beans on them). Huge portion, lots of cheese and extras, great guacamole (extra charge). Gold shrimp is also delicious, and the wings are pretty good too, especially during Happy Hour when they're half price. Strawberry margaritas are... More
