Ok service, average food. Food is bland not lots of flavor. Would not recommend. Better places to eat in Wichita.

Our party of 4 ate lunch here. The food is very average and I found nothing spicy. The margaritas were good as well as the tortilla chips. Other than that really not much to recommend this restaurant.

Great service!!!! Friendly servers.... Great chips and salsa (get the queso for the chips too!) Affordable pricing, military discount. Huge selection of options, will accommodate special requests with no problem.

Carlos O'Kelly's has baked flour tortilla chips. Just ask! Free. Delicious with queso or guacamole! The salsa is not too spicy - right balance of tomato, onion, and juiciness. The tortilla pizza appetizer is huge and makes for a light yet filling meal. Margs are a good blend of lime and not too sour. Cilantro lime rice is a refreshing... More

The best part of the meal was the wait staff. We had a waiter who was above good. The food was fresh and hot. Guacamole was fresh made. Clean and happy atmosphere.

It had been years since we had been to Carlos O'Kelly's so we thought we give them another try. While it wasn't bad, it wasn't great either. Their brand of Mexican is a little to Americanized to really call it Mexican food. It doesn't have enough spice to call it Tex-Mex either. The reality is that it could probably be... More

We're from Calif, so we are admittedly spoiled when it comes to Mexican food, but this place ranks very, very low. The salsa was decent, but the chips were right out of a bag from Wal- mart. They need to learn how to fry their own chips. Taco salad was nothing but a bowl of lettuce and stewed chicken. Margaritas... More
