Friendly and helpful staff

Good food and very friendly service. We went in the afternoon so did not have to wait to be seated. My only objection was the prices of the entrees; however, the atmosphere and the service was excellent. Our waitress went out of her way to be helpful!

Just moved into town and when asking where to get good Mexican food, Carlos and Mickeys's was the first recommendation. It was great food, friendly service and nice lunch atmosphere. We will definitely be back.

I have visited Carlos & Mickey's a couple times, and it's always on my list while visiting El Paso. Their margaritas are always tops and the live music just adds to the electric atmosphere. The wait staff goes above and beyond, and the restaurant itself is gorgeous.

This is a very fun place with live mariachis on Thursday and a great bar with amazing margaritas. The menu is large and has many different items to try. I Love the chimichanga plate. It's definitely worth a try when you come into El Paso

Went here based on my hotel's recommendation. I ate at the bar since I was alone. Service was good and the food was very filling. There was a lot be band playing which was definitely a plus for the atmosphere. Glad I went. Good recommendation from the hotel staff.

I have eaten here twice in the last couple years when I flew in and out of ELP on business. My food came within minutes and was hot and fresh. The bartender was a really friendly woman who said she'd been there for 8 years. I left something at the restaurant and called the next day when I returned home... More

Recommendated as a must while in El Paso. Great atmosphere, Margaritas were great, food was okay. This was more tex mex food. They were not able to customize our orders.

On my birthday, I asked around where I can get a margarita and good Mexican food in one place. My combo was all I wanted, right to the shredded beef taco...the chile relleno got progressively hotter yet stayed flavorful. Red enchilada good. Like NM several miles away, the chips and salsa were free...and excellent...not New York City or Austin :-)

Everyone will recommend this place to you, it's an El Paso staple. I get that but the food is subpar. The famous margaritas aren't even as amazing as I've heard. Maybe I just came here on an off day. If someone recommends going I won't say no but I'll never go out of my way to come here.
