The locals we met recommended we go on a Friday night
Yes the music and lounge were so much fun during our Ninety minute wait..it was ok with us as they warned us...good margarita and great music...but then the mistake was staying for our dinner. The food was at best very mediocre for some items (tortilla soup) and almost indelible for others including the "special of the day" tacos which were incredibly overly salty, greasy and full of fat and gristle and a wilted fajita salad. This place needs a department of health inspection as for the next two days....we payed the price for eating there with a near dysentery reaction. Run away away run away

They have 3 options for vegetarians and they weren't serving 2 of them. The cheese enchiladas where made with chicken broth and the imitation crab meat enchiladas where disgusting. Not all what is hyped up to be!!!

Great service, nice atmosphere, Quality food. Top shelf Margarita was very good. Two wrinkles. Salsa is average, Hot tea was barely warm. Probably tea is not their forte.

We had dinner at Carlos & Mickey's at the recommendation of the hotel staff and Trip Advisor. It was terribly disappointing and certainly didn't live up to the comments we had read on Trip Advisor. First, we had to wait for over 30 minutes in the bar, which was jammed with tables, probably too many to be safe. The margarita was fine. When we finally got into the restaurant, my chile rellenos arrived somewhere between cold and cool. My partner's "crab" enchiladas were made with "krab" which was not noted on the menu. The service was very good, the prices were good, but the menu was unimaginative. We would definitely NOT go there again.

You can't get a better margarita for the price here. The food is good too. We had flautas and a combo plate. I had the large shrimp cocktail, it was fantastic. The restaurant has some great decoratios and good ambiance.
