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.

My girlfriend lived in El Paso for a few years and she loved this place. Maybe things have changed since she left but I wasn't impressed. We arrived on a Thursday evening around 6PM and the place was packed. They have a large parking lot but we still had to drive around waiting for somebody to leave so we could... More

This has been THE place to go and especially bring visitors. I have found that service has become slower..mostly due to the large parties that attend. Food is good, reasonably priced. A favorite for Military related gatherings. If your fortunate you may be serenaded by a Mariachi band.

Carlos and Mickey's was all right but the service was lousy. After waiting 15 minutes, I had to run and get a waiter to get my check. The food was okay but the atmosphere was lousy. If I were in El Paso again, I would probably eat there again but it would not rank on one of top 10 restaurants... More

Finally something more than tacos and burritos at the el paso airport. Just had the beef tacos with rice and beans. Good beans and pretty good rice. Not a fan of white rice but this had a great flavor. The corn tortillas fried in oil, perfect. Looking forward to my next visit.

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
