We visited Carlito's to give the new owners a chance to keep our business after a very poor experience at the "going away" party for Jill. The place was almost empty on a Saturday evening at 715. We were immediately, sadly disappointed. Margaritas (not blended)...More

This is different, but my wife and I really enjoy it. Some people don't like that prices aren't posted, but the owner takes very good care of her customers and everything is VERY reasonably priced. It is a very unique place that has become one...More

She gave someone else our food. We the mistake was pointed out, she took it back to the kitchen. She brought it out to US and made it seem like there wasn't a mistake! Disagreement ensued. Won't be going back.

Very good food but lacks atmosphere. The bar however is very cool! It's a self serve bar!!! Awesome margaritas!!! The owner is quite the character. Definitely worth trying!

We have heard great things about this place, so maybe we came on a bad night. We got switched to three different tables. The owner continued to yell at our waiter through the whole evening. Felt bad for him. We might need to try again....More
