The décor is over-the-top, but it has a fun vibe. We ended up eating in the bar because the dining room was full. The service was excellent, and the food was adequate. The queso is not the best....I should have taken the red sauce on my enchilada. I thought the prices were very reasonable.

Right before getting on the plane, I decided to have one last authentic Mexican meal. L& J's cafe was the best ever, I was a little worried that this place might ruin my experience being it was in the airport. Guess what it was very good!!!! Super fast service and food was really fresh. Once again even the complimentary salsa... More

Waited 30 minutes for dinner, which never arrived. We observed a table , who arrived 10 minutes after us, receive their dinner. The restaurant was not crowded, and people appeared to be served in an orderly manner. We asked a waiter to check on our food, and he never returned to our table. We departed 5 minutes after that.

The proprietor is a generational restaurateur with deep roots in Mexican food cooking. It shows every time a plate is presented. In a town with thousands of Mexican food places this one sticks out because of consistency and atmosphere. Located off busy Montana Ave and tucked away behind a Chevrolet dealership Carlos & Mickey's delivers time after time. It's a... More

The food was good. The magaritas excellent! They also have this fried ice cream that's really good. the only bad part is that there is usually a 45 min wait and they close at 11 pm

We arrived around 5 without reservations. We were seated a few min after we arrived. The staff is very friendly, we were offered a drink while we waited for our table. Our waitress promptly took our drink order and they arrived quickly. The margaritas are well made. Many meals are under &10. We will return when we visit El Paso... More

I ate at the Carlos and Mickey's restaurant in the center of the El Paso Airport while waiting out a thunderstorm before heading out to Las Cruces, NM. There was no wait, and the service was perfect - got a lot of attention, and extremely polite. The food was good, I had the three beef tacos, and the chips and... More

Good tex-mex at a reasonable price. Overall, a decent restaurant. Fairly good atmosphere, prices and, margaritas. There may be better restaurants if you're a one time visitor but if you come to El Paso often, work in a visit here.
