Meh....

Had dinner here and the wait for a table was not worth what was to follow. Very overpriced food and servers were stretched thin and we noticed several tables , including our own, waiting 10-15 for drinks, and other 10-15 minutes before orders were taken. There is a lot of staff just standing... read more

We used to live here and C & P's as we called it was a regular stop. Now when we visit usually annually, we always go again. How nice to see Caesar again, who has worked there as long as we can remember! The chips were warm and plentiful, the salsa delicious! My crazy pepe's chicken burrito was delicious and... More

Carlos & Pepes is a typically fun Mexican restaurant. The fare is tortillas, meat, beans and rice in a variety of preparations. My wife and I each enjoyed a good plate of enchilladas. Tasty! Just what we were looking for.

One of us literally got sick from their chili. Other food is average. The pitchers of prickly pear margaritas were $48 per and tasted like pulp and sugar with no tequila. For the price, Rocco's Tacos blows it away and Ole Ole has way better food for cheaper. Don't make the same mistake we did. Will never go back.

Poor imitation of real Mexican food. The chicken tacos were terrible ( who can mess up a chicken taco???). Everything was way too expensive and fake. Service was ok and with a smile. The servers obviously don't care much about the food or if you enjoyed it. I ate almost nothing and no one asked why. Need I say more.

I have been going to c&p's since they opened. Truly it has been a while since I've been there until tonight and I was happy to see the same staff and happy to get my Chile Colorado fix. They could spend some money on the worn out upholstery and a good scrubbing but the place is worth a visit. I... More

This restaurant has been around forever, and the food has remained consistent throughout the years. What has really changed has been the prices. The chicken nacho, with the daisy sour cream is absolutely delicious, but it is a small portion for $14. The taco dinner (3 tacos) beans and rice was fine, but price seemed high at $13. Margaritas are... More

Excellent food and good service. Quite pricey for Mexican food. You must order and pay for chips and salsa.

We were within walking distance from our hotel so this was our choice for dinner. It is located in a strip shopping center. Large outside and inside dining if the weather permits. The fajitas are very good. One order is large enough for two to share.
