Went here for dinner with family - we were visiting and this is a family favorite for locals. Has fenced parking lot across the street. Ambiance is older but clean and pleasant. Service was excellent, attentive, and personable. Menu is diverse and is traditional Mexican food that is well-prepared and presented - amount is more than adequate. Everyone had different... More

We try to visit Don Carlos every time we return to Houston. The food is authentic and delicious and margaritas are very good. Chips and salsa as well as queso are great starters. The portions are generous--we shared a meal to keep from having so much food left this time. The restaurant is family friendly and the service is great.... More

My husband and I stopped in for a quick weekend breakfast. We were actually going to a small mexican restaurant down the street but, the parking over there was a horrible mess! We were pleasantly surprised that Don Carlos had a gated parking lot. We were immediately seated. I ordered the Menudo and a barbacoa taco. My husband ordered a... More

We found this Don Carlos location while looking for the Broadway location. It was SO good. They served complementary salsa & queso with their chips...Yum!! Food was excellent and there was so much of it. Even after our party of 4 ate, there was still probably enough left for 2 more people to eat. And this was at lunch! Service... More
