Great Dinner Spot for Mexican

We stopped here for dinner on a recommendation from people in the area. We were not disappointed! The food was very, very good. The wait staff very attentive and the atmosphere extremely pleasant. I would go back here for dinner.

If you like to drink, C&M is your place. They have HUGE, fun, drinks. The food, Mexican, is nothing special....run of the mill. It takes a while to get seated, and that's after you've circled the parking lot for a while looking for parking. It's a fun party place, but if you don't drink and prefer a more quiet atmosphere,...

The restaurant is always crowded. If you arrive exactly at dinner or lunch times, you may have to wait to be seated, so we always try to arrive either early or later than the popular dining times. Regardless of the number of customers, service is excellent, wait staff is on their toes and observant, food is great, especially the Caldo... More

This is a good place for a casual meal and drink. The food was standard. Service was much better than the taste of the food. The atmosphere is loud, live & festive.

Carlos & Mickey's Restaurant is the real thing for quality Mexican food. We have eaten at Carlos & Mickey's off and on for 30 years and it has always been excellent. Most recently we visited the restaurant in October 2015 for the first time in many years. We were passing through El Paso and looking for great Mexican food. We... More

Good Mexican food with good service. The waitstaff is very attentive and the menu offers several options. I had the fish tacos which were exceptionally good. The salsa has some kick...which I like. Will visit again.

This is a lovely traditional reasonable priced Mexican restaurant. As I understand it, there are those that love Julio's and those that love Carlos and Mickey's. Not having tried Julio's yet I can't compare. The margarita's were large and tasty. My colleague had a queso fundido that looked amazing. I had a chicken soup that was yummy and the tacos... More

Since Mexican food is my favorite I could not wait to see what El Paso had to offer. I was not disappointed. The food was great, the service was great, the atmosphere was great, the prices were great, I cannot think of anything that needs improvement. If I lived here I would be a regular. Thanks Carlos and Mickey's it... More

Fast, friendly, and attentive staff. The food was pretty good. The hostess mentioned that certain sauces could be tasted before ordered, as they are sometimes spicier than what some people are looking for. Recommend going on a weekday during an off time. During peak lunch and dinner times, the restaurant is packed.
