Nice restaurant/bar, but hit and miss on the entrees.

Very tempted to give the review five stars, as I've had many great meals here in the past, but my latest visit wasn't the best food-wise and so four stars it is. The restaurant itself is very nice, with a sprawling layout and outside-seating available. Service is great and they are very... read more

Had a great experience at Carlos & Mickey's. Food was delicious. Had Chile Con Queso for an appetizer (they give you chips, salsa and re-fried beans) Our party had a Sombrero salad (taco salad) and Red Chicken Enchiladas. The decor is very festive and is the atmosphere, Additionally, out server was friendly and attentive. I would recommend giving it a... More

I had an excellent experience here, so good in fact that I sent a second time during my week in El Paso. Both times my meals were excellent and the service exceeded expectations, especially the first night when my waiter had a large table to serve as well. I saw evidence of a team waiter concept for sure.

I went to this restaurant with a group of friends and did not find this restaurant to live up to all of the rave reviews it seems to get. The food was more authentic than regular tex-mex restaurants but not all that unique. The restaurant seems to pride itself on their $15 large margaritas which the waiter pushes from the... More

Wow! I had read some reviews of carlos and mickeys but this place surpassed my expectations! Great food! Excellent service! Great mixed drinks! And...live music on the Sunday night we went for dinner. I had the Carnitas and my husband had the steak ranchero. Both were real deal Mexican food. Full of flavor and not the Americanized Mexican food you... More

The food was phenomenal, tasty, hot and colorful. The smell of real Mexican food immediately wakes all your senses. The drinks are very good specially the Margaritas. The service and the Mariachi music was very nice.

We went for dinner around 5 on a Saturday. We had about a half hour wait, Seem like there was a big graduation party from UTEP and a birthday party.The wait was well worth it. The service we received was great. The soup to dinner to the Margarita's and fried ice cream was fantastic. If we were in El Paso... More

This is a very good resturant. However, if you come here get the kind of food they specialize in, which is not hotdogs and ham burgers. The atmosphere throughout this place is amazing! Good music for the type of resturant that it is. I ordered the tortilla soup, tacos el pastor, a side tomolli, and a few sopipas with honey... More
