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.

The people were really friendly and the food was really good. The manager even gave us great tips on the nearby places to visit.

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.

The place isn't fancy but the food is great. They specialize in Mexican seafood, especially shrimp. The service is friendly and efficient. You will always get a good meal here. It's a convenient place to stop between Grants Pass (I-5) and the coast (Crescent City or Brookings).

I went with friends, one of whom is really picky about Mexican food. He ordered chile rellenos and raved about how wonderful it was - said it was the BEST relleno he's had in Oregon! Their black beans (which they willingly substituted for refried beans) were delicious. I wasn't as enamored with the carne assada - found it a little... More

We went for dinner here and it was pretty busy, and our server seemed to be extremely overworked. Maybe they were understaffed, and I don't think it was his fault, he really seemed to be trying his best, but he was flying around the place and was in a major rush with us, although he was very friendly while rushing!...

Anytime we pass through Cave Junction we stop at Carlos Restaurante for really good Mexican fare. Many times we simply split the fajitas for one because the portions are rather large. Great food, free WiFi and attentive servers, can't get better than that when traveling.

Good food but nothing exceptional about this restaurant. Service was good and fairly quick. The gave huge portions, we likely could have split one meal between two people.

Our family has been eating at Carlos' since the restaurant opened. We've never had bad service, in fact quite the opposite. Very few restaurants can match the level of service that's given at Carlos. The food is wonderful...but the prices have gotten a little expensive. So we save going to Carlos for special occasions.
