The Mexican food here is just ok. It arrived at the table almost instantly - which always concerns me that it is fresh out of the microwave - careful, hot plate. That said, the chicken in the enchiladas was all white meat and tender. Rice was a little dry. The dining room is dark and claustrophobic, that heaven they weren't... More

Rather dark atmosphere. Selections were great. Margarita was super good. Food was prepared well, nothing fancy. Chips were warm with salsa. Price was good . I would go again.

The wait staff are always prompt and attentive. But the food is also excellent and authentic. This is a very small town in a fairly remote area of southwest Oregon on the Redwood Highway with this great Mexican restaurant. Go figure.

The menu was great, service good, plenty of seating inside or outside. It was a Friday night and it was busy but that did not impact the service. Good mexican food.

We picked this restaurant due to glowing TripAdvisor reviews, and they were spot on. We were greeted warmly by the owner at the front desk and everything just got better from there. Spotlessly clean, authentic and fresh food, attentive service, fun ambiance. The owner spent quite a lot of time chatting with us about his favorite stops along our planned... More

We came to this little gem of a restaurant two times while visiting family in Cave Junction. The food is fresh, well presented, authentic, and very tasty. Carlos and his family are also extremely helpful and friendly! We will always stop here and have a meal when we are in town.

The service and food was excellent. The prices were normal for a nice mexican restaurant and we ate on the patio and watched the rednecks drag main for our entertainment.

When you need that Mexican Food fix, stop off at Carlos'. Eat in or take out. Food like Grandma Concha made. Margaritas like Tio Miguel made. Dine inside, in the patio or sit in the bar. Its like going home for dinner.

Carlos is a nice sit-down Mexican restaurant in an area with little to choose from. It is always packed. I'm a vegan and every time I go, which is at least once a month, I am impressed that they have a great little vegan/vegetarian options, all of which are interesting and tasty.
