Chips and salsa style cheap Mexican food. Opt for grilled chicken or steak instead of ground beef. It cost a little more but skipping the greasy beef will save your stomach later on. My 2 toddlers and I easily split the aroz con polo on our last visit.

Recent visit to this restaurant was our first experience. We met up with relatives for one of their daughters birthday celebration. We were in a party of 12 that ranged from 8 months to 66 years old. The fare was similar to Carlos O'Brians, Carlos O'Kelly's, etc. Much like the two other Carlos restaurants the food is not totally authentic... More

Everything from the fajitas, burritos and tacos were great tasting and very larger portions. Service was great as well. Will probably never travel that road again but it was a very successful find and a great meal.

Great food, excellent service, and served up fast! One of our favorite Mexican restaurants, not only in Decatur, IL, but other places, too. Wonderful fried ice cream if you have room for dessert!

I was so excited for some good food tonight with my wife and some friends. What a huge dissapointment! This place sure has gone downhill since my last visit a few years ago. The waitress was busy, and I will cut her a little slack, but she was also hard of hearing and kept saying "huh?" While we were ordering.... More

This place used to best in town but its gone downhill recently. The service is terrible and they almost always mess the order up. They still have good salsa though!!

We went on our 5th Anniversary to this restaurant to check out food and we loved it. The food was very delicious. Service was great. Though we didnt like much of ambience there and it looked like very old restaurant.
