I find myself writing more 5-star reviews in Rosarito than in most places and Charly's is no exception. This is my first visit to the Baja so what kind of a tourist would I be if I didn't have fish tacos? My cousin is very familiar with the area and she recommended Charly's. They're more than generous with their starters--fire-roasted... More

This is my old hangout to meet with friends for football and baseball. The staff is top notch and the food made by the ladies is home made!

The food and service was great! We also loved the chips we got when we arrived. Strongly recommended to everyone who wants to try real, good Mexican food.

The entrance to this place is very deceptive, you think you're walking into a small store. It is nice inside, service is excellent as is the food. Breakfast of huevos rancheros and Chilequiles were both great.

3 day surf trip with a couple of friends. Charly's was recommended by someone who visits area a few times a year. Glad we took the recommendation. Went twice for lunch...both times food and service were exceptional. We will be back for sure on next trip down.

Never had one bad experience here. The older ladies preparing the food in the kitchen do an exceptional job of turning out superior quality authentic Mexican food. The place has a friendly unrushed feel, very accommodating and relaxed. Among the best Mexican meals you can experience, although I am a fan or their non fish related items. Despite there 4-5...

We tried Charly's on a recommendation and we are so happy that we did!! We stopped in on a Friday night, the place was busy with Karaoke on one side of the bar & there was a nightclub upstairs with music as well. We asked our waitress what she recommended in the way of drinks & she said the margaritas... More

I've been here twice (with friends) in the past two weeks and each time the service sucked. It would take forever for stuff to arrive and a lot of the time items ordered didn't show up.
