“Very good service and prompt delivery of food”
Reviewed October 29, 2011

Each time we have eaten at Carlos O'Kelly's we have been greeted by one or more friendly hostesses and taken to a dining area. Complimentary chips and salsa follow with the wait staff taking the drink order. Menu items appear to be reasonably priced and the servings are of generous portions. Our favorite is to have the cheese crisp appetizer as meal. My preference is the chipotle cheese crisp.

My only negative is that St Joseph still allows smoking in restaurants and the center dining/bar area here is designated smoking. Sometimes if one is close to that area or a door the odor permeates other areas and since the wait staff has to go here for drinks and pass through for food orders, the stale smoke sometimes tags along.

Wait staff has always been courteous, helpful and prompt here and are a big plus for this restaurant.

“Good Food/Good Price”
Reviewed September 26, 2010

Hubby and I tried Carlos O'Kellys In St Joseph,Mo. for the first time after being hesitant to do so after reading some negative reviews. We found the food good and the wait staff friendly and attentive. After having some complimentary chips and salsa,we shared a burrito platter that was the special for that night and had $2 beers.Can't beat that and we had no complaints.Will go back again if ever in the area.

Thank bobarb4853
