Excellent service and very nice selection of entrees

We enjoyed a lovely sunset over the mountains in Roanoke, VA, while dining on some fabulous food! The service was attentive but not intrusive. We wonder why we waited so long to go there!!

This is a favorite place of ours. We eat there as often as we can find time together. My wife and I have always had wonderful meals each and everytime we have been there. Everything is great! The special homemade hot sauce is out of this world. Word to the wise, a little goes a long way!

Based on TripAdvisor we stopped by for a nice evening meal. It was not busy at all but heard they had a large group in the back room. There were also a few business meeting around the room.

Carlos has been a favorite of mine for a long time--1st ate there back when it was a tiny joint downtown. I know that locals sometimes complain about it, but I guess they expect Mexican or something. However, for those who love international cuisine, you definitely want to try this. Black beans and rice, plantains, great seafood as well as... More

Just awful! My husband and I went to Carlos for Valentines Day. From the the very beginning it was terrible. They lost our reservation, then it magical appeared after the humiliation in front of a crowd. Then, this is a big one, the food was just awful. The flavors were just bland and not typical of Brazilian food at all.... More

This place interests us because of the variety and flavor twists offered by so many of the foods. We suspect that the chefs are inspired to distinguish themselves and their cooking, and we appreciate it. Although the prices are above the norm for Roanoke, we think they are in keeping with the quality. We dine here on special occasions.

Had the pleasure of dining here during our stay. Though the restaurant is known as a steak house the staff was very accommodating to the vegetarian in me. The meal was scrumptious!
