Always a good choice for a delicious lunch or dinner at a great price. My favorite are the brisket tacos!

I've had a lot better and I've had worse. My beef and bean burrito had very, very few beans. The hard shell taco was OK. The beef enchilada was very soggy, almost mushy. I liked the beans and rice sides. At least I got to put more beans on my burrito! All in all I will probably go back and... More

Wonderful menu with a lot of tasty Mexican options. Seafood enchiladas were excellent. Great atmosphere and service. Worth a stop.

We went here during lunch time. The parking lot was full and we expected to wait. But we were seated at a comfortable booth right away. The server was prompt. Our piping hot meal was at the table within minutes. I would visit this place again.

Most Mexican restaurants have the standards offerings. And usually the inside of the taco, burrito, whatever isn't that tasty. But here, there is more variety--more flare and seasonings to the regular offerings. Always enjoyable.

Carlos Okelly's is my wife's favorite place to eat and it did not disappoint. The food was excellent and the service was excellent as well. I love the chips and dip here it is really good.

My wife and I had not been to this restaurant for some time as it is not near us. However, since we were in that part of town yesterday, we stopped for lunch. We were very impressed with the food and the service. We were seated quickly and had very quick service and were not bothered every 2 minutes to... More

I have been to this restaurant a couple of other times and never had I have an issue with the cleanliness of the facility. Today was a different kind of day. First the hostess went to seat us in a location that she had marked as clean and it was not, there were dirty dishes from the last customers As... More
