I have been a long time patron of Carlos & Mickey's (20 + years) and it seems to be going down hill... sadly. The drinks are getting smaller and weaker. This used to be one of their trademarks......you got your money's worth! The food has never been spectacular.....but even that has gotten worse and smaller portions. They have lost or... More

We've been here before and have always enjoyed C&M's food and experience. The Saturday we last visited, we both ordered fajitas. The meat tasted like it had gone bad. It was stringy and had a terrible odor. We both decided not to eat any more. In fact, I did not even take it home for my dogs. I was afraid... More

I recommend anyone to go. The food, atmosphere and service are exceptional. The price is a little high but well worth it.

Great Mexican food, with good service and a nice restaurant atmosphere. A good place to take visiting guests or family. It is usually pretty busy so go early or make reservations for larger groups.

My husband and I have been here before and had great experiences, but this time was terrible. I had the steak taco plate. The meat was not seasoned, the beans taste watered down, and the rice which they said was Mexican rice, taste as buttered rice. The service was excellent though as well as the live music. The prices are... More

We had lunch at the airport location of Carlos and Mickeys before boarding our flight home from a vacation in Cloudcroft, NM. The service as very good, the decor was appealing. The food, however, was just bland. After eating well days earlier at Kiki's near the airport, Carlos and Mickey's was, by comparison, a dissapointment.

In a city that borders Mexico finding Mexican food is no trouble. However, finding exceptional Mexican food is. This is where you will find it.
