“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

We ate here years ago and remembered it to be much better than it was. It's was just OK tex-mex, nothing spectacular. My margarita was good and the bill was cheap but it was just OK food.

“Awesome service, great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2012

Even though I was there just this weekend, I can't for the life of me remember our waiter's name. However, as the rest of the servers around us seemed to be on the same level, I can tell you with some level of a guarantee that the service here was awesome, despite being busy on a Saturday night. Chip dishes were never empty and service was provided with a smile.

If you've been to a Carlos O'Kelly's before, the food is consistent with the rest of the chain and was therefore DELICIOUS. Gotta love Tex Mex! We tried the Chili Con Queso (a favorite cheese/meat dip for the delicious chips, which you can purchase in bags) and Fiesta Chicken Salad (AWESOME and quite filling as it's really enough for two people).

I also had a virgin Strawberry Margarita and was happy with it.

Overall, great restaurant and definitely as good as its counterparts in Wichita! No complaints. :)
