Good!

We were surprised at the quality and quantity of food at this little Mexican restaurant. The YOUNG man who seated us and picked up our check was the most polite, helpful and accommodating pre-teen. We will be stopping again on our next trip through Cave Junction.

The food was excellent and the service was great. Always enjoy eating here. The patio area is nice for something different. They have a great little bar.

This is a very friendly and authentic Mexican restaurante located in the heart of Douglas County, Oregon, in the crossroads town of Winston. It is great for a followup after a visit to Wildlife Safari. We are always greeted at the door by the friendly staff (often the owner) and escorted to a seating area. It is a fun place... More

Lots of a free chips and salsa. The menu was very large, with one page for seafood items, another ones for specialties. I got the carne asada soft tacos which were quite flavorful. It came with a tasty bean soup and mexican rice. My wife got a fried fish plate, the fish was not as fresh or good tasting as... More

Driving thru Cave Junction and decided to try Carlos Restarante located along the main drag. Sign says "Excellent Mexican Food" and it is accurate. You can add in excellent service and prices too! Yum!

Travelling through Cave Junction I told wife there was a Mexican restaurant here. I had Dairy Queen in mind. It was 80 degrees but we found a shady spot to park for the dogs' sake. I wasn't expecting much and thought it would be pricey. We had the option of sitting inside or outside. We picked a booth inside. It... More

I ordered the Chile Releno and I have never had it prepared this way. It had a gravy sauce over it and it was very good. The service was fast and friendly. There is a bar and outside seating.

Carlos' is a great place to go for lunch or dinner. Wait Staff is always friendly and helpful. Along with the regular diningroom, they also have a full bar, sunroom and outside patio. The food is consistently good. It is one of our favorite go-to places for a family dinner or quick lunch.
