Pricey Mexican food

Even tho it's pricey for Mexican food, I still wind up here!? It opens at 5pm, so no lunch. Either way, the food is always tasty and the drinks good.

We have been to Ft. Lauderdale several times in the last 15 years and we always make it a point to stop at Carlos and Pepe's for some great Mexican food. I enjoy the Relenos but the Chile Colorado is excellent as well as the fajitas. Make sure you save room for the fried ice cream. It is delicious! Ask... More

Always up to try a new mexican restaurant, we tried Carlos & Pepe's. We were not disappointed. Friendly staff. Quick service. Tasty food, just don't get lost reading the menu like we did. Very entertaining to read. You'll catch yourself laughing out loud. If I could have walked out with a menu I would have. Excellent crispy chicken tacos.

Haven't been there in many years but really enjoyed it. Homemade tacos were great. The fajitas had a lot of meat and very tasty. The fried ice cream was the best.

We tried this restaurant on the evening of August 2. It was a Sunday night a little after 8pm. When we walked in there were several empty tables so we thought this would be a fairly quick experience. It's always a little frustrating to walk in and not have a smile and a hi. Not sure if the hostess had... More

I enjoyed dinner at Carlos & Pepe's restaurant. We arrived at 6pm. I would say it was a great time because we were able to get nice seating. The staff was very attentive, coming over several times to make sure everything was to our liking. The food was excellent. I ordered a beef burrito combo, with rice & refried beans,... More

They do not have a kids menu here which was a bummer for us since our family and our friends who we met included 5 children. Everyone enjoyed the food and the kids loved the little flags they put in the food. The rice was so so, but really everyone ate all their food so it must have been good.... More

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
