Very good food and loved the outside seating

Very tasting and authentic. It was crowded inside so we sat outside. Will recommend and go back. Make sure not to miss this place.

Came to this restaurant as it was recommended from another family member. The service was slow and the food was lousy and overpriced for tacos and burritos. Their so called steak tasted like pot roast. Do yourself a favor and go to chipotle!

The first time there, overwhelm with a foul, stinky smell, the Food was awful in taste, found a hair and bug in our food. Margaritas/ cocktail drinks are pre made and lot's of sugar. The decor is out dated. So to all who enjoy going there BEWARE, Watch what you're eating smell, taste, make SURE you do not have bugs,... More

The atmosphere puts you in the eating mood..it's a cozy place that's just intimate enough for you to forget all the distraction of the day. The food is fantastic. I ordered the super nachos and a pizza. It was SO much food I was shocked. Chips and salsa were also included. The nachos were works of art and the pizza... More

Our waitress offered us skinny margaritas which is a great option without all the sugary syrups most places give you. We were told which items conformed to our vegan diet and the homemade chips and food were very yummy! The atmosphere was great and the place was a close walk to our hotel. Very pleased!

We all enjoyed our meals and there was plenty of food to share. The prices were a bit high compared to what we expected for the location and atmosphere. The waiters were attentive and helpful. Might go back if we're ever in the area.

This restaurant is in close proximity to all the hotels that service the cruise ship port. It is a easy spot to hit if you want a short cab ride or even walk from some hotels. For Mexican food it is expensive and the host was less than helpful. We reviewed the menu before sitting down and realized that everything... More

We had eaten at Carlos and Pepe's some years before and remembered the experience favorably. Times change; so do restaurants. The margaritas are still delicious, but like all else in life, are the victim of significant price inflation. Nevertheless, this house specialty is still a hallmark about which they can brag. And, that is about all. We waited too long... More
