If you like mexican, try somewhere else. Cheese dip tasted like ball park dip. Chicken tasted like canned chicken. Margaritas are average. Service was slow. Won't be back.

“Loved this place!”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

We really enjoyed eating here! We went two times. First time had an awesome waitress, second time not as good, but she wasn't awful either! I cannot rave enough about their Guac that they make at your table! The absolute BEST!! That is why we made a second trip! It was interesting that they did not serve salsa and chips when you first arrived. We had fish tacos that were good! I would go back to this place just for the guacamole any day!!

“Nice location for pre or post wedding celebration”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

My husband and I hosted 40 guests for a wedding at the Flamingo in October. We hosted a get together at Carlos and Charlie's the night before our wedding. It was perfect. We just wanted a reserved area to meet with our guests arriving for the weekend, and without food and beverage minimums that most of the popular bars required. We arrived in the late afternoon and took over several tables on the patio, we hosted appetizers and several buckets of beer and our guests could buy anything else on their own. This was more flexibility than the other Bars in the area would provide..it turned out our group spent enough to cover any food and beverage minimum the other establishments required...and Carlos and Charlie's let us set up the tab without a contract. This helped to start our wedding weekend on a relaxing note. The food was great, the prices reasonable, and service was attentive and flexible to our needs. We will definitely put Carlos and Charlie's at the top of our list for all future return visits to Las Vegas!

“great location and drink specials”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

Location in the Flamingo was really handy to the middle of the Strip. The drink specials were wonderful, location is great. Dancing at night was fun. The crowd was fun. Not crazy about their music.

“Ultra Lounge? Ultra Lame.”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

We were suckered into checking out Carlos' n Charlie's on a Thursday evening by one of the guys walking around the hotel handing out wristbands. He told us that we would get in for free with an open bar. Awesome, right?! Well, the wristband was good for the cover, but we had to pay $20 per person to get a red solo cup that was good for four drinks only.
We went in expecting to get out money's worth and were really disappointed with the crowd. Sure, it was Thursday, but there were maybe 20 people inside. Whatever.
We went to the bar and got decent service from a flashy bartender with a whistle who poured essentially a red solo cup full of vodka. Awesome, right?! Yeah, if you reallllllyyyy love vodka. We couldn't have finished four drinks unless we wanted to end up in the ER. So it really ended up to be a $20 cup of vodka.
Also, the DJ was just awful. Occasionally he would play a song that people knew and would dance to, but he was sloppy and the music was terrible. I think there are many better places in Vegas to spend your money!
