“So many better options!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

We were there yesterday and there were 6 of us! The margaritas were so sweet and te service was no great. The food tasted amazing but all of us were sick for the rest of the night.... And it was so expensive!! They brought us these massive yard drinks and we didn't really order them! It felt like a big American chain and you can do that at home!! Pick somewhere else to go!!

“Expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

Took the family there (2 small kids / 2 adults). The concierge at our hotel gave me a coupon for a free adult dinner (soup or salad and one designated entree.) Husband ordered the fish tacos for $205 Pesos. Got 3 small tacks...no sides. Thought it was overpriced. I got the mole chicken and tortilla soup. Very good and big portions. One kid got the baby cheeseburger which was 3small sliders with fries. The other got the pepperoni piazza and fries. Both kids meals were good. I got a Sol and husband got a yard margarita. Kids got free ice cream dessert with their meals. Husband and Isplit milk caramel crepes. Cost us about $64 USD plus tip (even after my free meal was deducted). Singing waiters and balloon clown were good entertainment for the kids.

Carlos & Charlies is a party atmosphere with balloon animals to wear on your head, decent food, and huge drinks. There are large TV screens all over the restaurant and fun wait staff dancing with customers and having fun at work!

“If your missing food from home, this is the place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

Wow, what a meal. When they say an 8oz Burger and large Prawns - they mean it. This place is the eating location of choice. It is right on Kukulcan Boulevard by the Hardrock Cafe - when you see the big guitar you are right there. Stop and and enjoy but have a big appetite the food is second to none.
The service is outstanding and the attention they pay to you is great. Not sure what it is like on a busy weekend but we sure enjoyed our meal, which we could not finish.
This was a gold mine to just happen by and find because we were hungry and tired of shopping in the mall of Mexican items across the street. Good selection of items in the mall but they don't leave you alone.
