We were very please with the service and surprised with the size of the meal portions at Carlitos'. The spice level was super mild (less tangy than we are used to) but otherwise we were quite pleased. Well presented and very good quality.

Chose this place based on TripAdvisor reviews. Interior reminded us of a restaurant at home that we used to go to - it's pretty dated. Service was good, food arrived quickly. Nothing super special about our dishes. Decent mexican food at a reasonable price. Chips...More

Ageing restaurant, good staff, standard eats. Red Bluff is not really a diners paradise, but many establishments do a fair job.

Had dinner here one evening everyone enjoyed their meal and the drinks were huge. Prices were very reasonable and servings were more than generous.

Walked there and always had plenty of good Mexican food. A friendly staff, chips and salsa right away. Great margaritas, according to my husband. Good prices, usually ended up with a doggie bag, which is good, I'm sure my dog is Mexican!

I have been going to Carlitos for the past 5 years and have never been disappointed in the quality of their food or in the service provided by their staff.

This place used to be one of the best but try ordering a simple carnita dish and you'll regret it. Total waste of money...the only highlight is the bar. Drink enough and you'll eat the food!

Traveling with my husband. Hotel clerk sent us to La Corona restaurant but it was closed. We went instead to Carlitos and we're glad we did. Food was fresh and good. Margaritas had plenty of tequila. Service was good and friendly. I would return.
