Ate here about 3pm. Service was good, atmosphere was pleasant. Ordered a brisket taco and it was not what I expected. I wouldn't order it again but I would definitely go back to this restaurant and try something different. Queso was very good.

Kelsey our server was awesome and very helpful. The food was good and the atmosphere was great. They have many drink specials and have a great family atmosphere as well. This will be a go-to place for us when we are in Wichita from now on! Thank you Carlos O'Kelly's for an excellent experience!

I went with a friend to this location of Carlos O'Kelly's on Christmas eve afternoon about 230PM. We ate in the bar area, had the $19.81 special which comes with a bowl of queso.

We love Carlos O'Kellys. Because we weren't as hungry this visit. We just ordered the appetizer crisp. It was yummy and hit the spot perfectly.

Our party of 4 ate lunch here. The food is very average and I found nothing spicy. The margaritas were good as well as the tortilla chips. Other than that really not much to recommend this restaurant.
