Description: Carlos'n Charlie's is a family-friendly, 100% Mexican restaurant, where the genuine personality and subtle humor of Grupo Anderson's founder, Carlos Anderson, is apparent in every detail. In a laid-back, casual setting, guests are free to do as they please as they are entertained by their surroundings - dancing on chairs, comical skit performances, singing and more. The servers work as a team, paying close attention to detail and entertaining guests individually to ensure that each person leaves with an unforgettable memory of the restaurant.

“How bad can it be? Terrible!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

We ate here last week - I usually check Tripadvisor first but we made the mistake of walking past and being hungry so we thought we would try it. Huge mistake. Odd staff - pretty disinterested in us and just focused on a few larger tables, atrocious food, the sort of food you eat and then expect to be ill after, lukewarm, bland and unappealing. Go anywhere else apart from here!

“Fun Place”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We loved the relaxed atmosphere of the restaurant. Burgers were huge! Such a fun place to visit. Water trampoline for the kids to have fun on. We took a glass bottom boat tour from the restuarant to 2 reefs. Amazing tour. $20 per person for an hour and a half. Great value.

“"Skip It"”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Charlies is along the main strip with all the little shops - and right next to Senor Frogs. We didn't want to eat at Senor Frogs - and from the outside it appeared to be a happening place so we decided to give it a try. Inside the place was empty - the laughter, cheers, whistle blowing etc. that we heard is a sound track that they pipe outside to get you to come in. The food was awful - the drinks were served in these large awkard plastic thingy's - that leaked AND had "SENIOR FROGS" printed on them. Ugh - they are under the same management!! We were accosted by a clown - who made balloon hats for all of us. Not really our thing but we felt obligated to tip him. Then they came around and wanted us to play a game where they pour tequilla down your throat - shake your head around - etc. "No thanks!" The worst part was - we are fairly certain that both my son and I contracted the Norovirus from this establishment. We were violently ill for seven days. All I can say is "skip it" - there has got to be some where else to eat!

“Very typical”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

This delivered exactly what you'd expect from any Carlos'n Charlies or Senor Frogs. The food is just average, the service sucks, it's very loud, the drinks are large, and they are constantly trying to sell you something else. They came around and took a picture of us, which we actually liked and purchased with their special frame. We didn't realize until we got home and took it out that they stamped a date on the picture when they printed it and it's the wrong date!

“Best Beach & Bevs”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

Best beach bar ever!
Full of charm and cold drinks ...plenty for the whole family. Water activities (like 10 different types of bounce houses on the water, giant slides, trampolines) and swings/recliners for soaking up the sun and sipping fruity rum drinks!
