We've been eating in Carlos's for years. Menu has gone through some changes, some good, some not so much. The chili relleno is always good. The Seven Mares contains lots of delicious seafood. Try it. If you re lucky everything goes well you will have had great small town dining experience.

Beware when you pay credit card. Just a friendly advice. Check your bank transactions to see how much they charge you. CJ is well known as rich community through herb growers so most people pay cash. We been charge twice and took few days for them to fix the problem.

In this small community, there are surprisingly several well-reviewed dining options. We had planned to grill steaks on our first night of a two-night stay at nearby Vertical Horizons Treehouse Paradise, but weather, the lateness of the hour, and travel fatigue compelled us to forage for food in Cave Junction. We opted for Mexican food because it's so easy to... More

We love this restaurant. They four different seating/eating options: dining room, enclosed porch, open porch and full service bar. The staff is always friendly (but frequently very busy). The food is consistently excellent and the prices are good.

Carlos's is a wonderful authentic Mexican Restaurant, the food is delicious and there is plenty of it. Had to wait a little longer than expected for the food but then again anything that good is worth waiting for. Can't wait to visit again.
