Best Mexican Food for the value. 10/19/2006

I am a native to Phoenix, and believe I have tried them all. If you compare the atmosphere, quality and quantity of the food, price, wait for a table and or seating capacity, then shop no more. Carlos O'briens has it all! This place has a nice sports bar seperate from the resteraunt, and has the best chipssalsa you'll ever put in your mouth! I have experienced just about everything on the menu and have never been dissapointed. True...the service can be somewhat slow at times due to peak times of the day, however that happens anywhere you eat and cannot be fault of the staff. There are lunch and dinner specials to choose from, and the servings are huge!! You will take home a doggie-bag. Highly Recommended! Pros: Superior rating on food, service, quality and quantity of food. Cons: Can't think of any at all. Wait...no valet service! more

Great AZ Style Mexican! 5/19/2005

My 1st ""Carlos"" experience was over 25 yrs ago. We would wait a couple hours for a table. 25 yrs later, I still love it - thankfully it's bigger now & the wait not so bad! Go for the ""Little Bit of Everything"" plate, Mexican Pizza, or chimis. Huge servings! The only downside is since Sean isn't there to oversee like he used to, service can be sluggish - but chill! Chips & salsa are great & worth the wait!! Quick service between 1:00-5:00 pm. If you love Tex Mex, probably not for you. Pros: Great $$ value, Lots of parking, Terrific chips Cons: Noise level, service-sometimes more

Wonderful! 10/29/2004

Every time I come back home, I HAVE to eat here!!! I've eaten at many Mexican restaurants and this is by far the best! The Margaritas, the chimichangas, you name it, it's all excellent. I have never had a bad experience here, I don't know what some other people are talking about. It is DELICIOUS!!!!! Prepare yourself for good food and good fun! Pros: Food, Margaritas, Great Value more

Location 5/23/2004

I will say that the last time I went home, they had opened a new location and the the food and service was not so hot. But the Original on I think it's 16th st. Has always been my first choice. If you havent tried that one, I suggest it. Pros: price, quantity, service Cons: , always busy, service more

Do not GO! 5/22/2004

My husband can eat Mexican food everyday. We go to many different restaurants in the area. The food was awful and the waitstaff was rude. We should have known by the name Carlos O'brien's it was not true Mexican food. more

AWESOME!! 12/18/2002

This is the best mexican food around. I've had many of their dishes and I've never left hungry or unhappy. Their portion sizes are huge and their shredded beef enchiladas are amazing! Give it a try, you won't be disappointed. more
