The food is good, not great. The prices seemed a little high for what we got. My wife and I ordered chimichangas off the lunch menu. I ordered a drink, she did not. The total came to $28. The chimichangas weren't that great. Honestly, if someone had put the plate in front of me and told me to guess what... More

We go to San Carlos often. We like the food and service. There is very little for Mexican food options in this region, and they do a great job with it. Very family friendly and good margaritas.

The Mexican food here is made by Mexicans. The owner, Carlos, brings them in from Sonora, Mexico, his home. Locals didn't like the rice -- which was authentic and I've only had it in Los Angeles and Mexico itself, but here in W. New York, locals thought it was burnt, so they got rid of it. Dang. Nevertheless, whenever my... More

Two friends and I had dinner at San Carlos early. The entrees were delicious and very generous as always. My friends each took some home and we are familiar with the generous portions so we shared a dessert between the three of us! The service was fine and the chips and salsa are nice. One of my favorite things is... More

It was very good. San Carlos serves large portions, one filled me up, took the other home and had it for supper. There are lunch specials under $10 that are very... More

While on business in Bath, NY a friend and I stopped at San Carlos for a lunch. I was very pleased with the homemade chips and salsa, complimentary before the meal. (Get the hot salsa- excellent) The menu is varied with something for everyone. I got a lunch combination with a burrito, taco, and rice. I was extremely happy with... More

We've been to San Carlos before, and while the service has been borderline, the good food always made up for it. BUT NOT TONIGHT! Again, the food was good, but I will not pay good money for food and service, to get the type of service we got tonight. We were eating an early dinner so there were only 2... More
