The service was good. The food was mediocre. The margaritas were better than the food. Chips and guacamole were fine. The prices are reasonable. Nothing was incredible but neither was it horrible. If you're in the area then it's a decent place to visit.

This is another South Florida institution, been here for many years, great little bar area, try the Margaritas! The chips come out fresh and hot, almost always have a fun conversation at the bar while waiting on a table, usually a little wait here, it is very popular. Why? The food is good, reasonably priced, fun atmosphere, great location! Ultimate... More

I have been going to this restaurant for over 30+ years. Great food and drinks. The super nachos and tuna dip is amazing. Actually all of their dishes are great along with their drinks. This restaurant has been around for years and many locals go weekly. Never disappointed! Staff is wonderful and courteous.

An excellent tradition!!! Their happy hour at the bar is a plus! A Margarita & meal for under $20! Margaritas are excellent! They gave us a free sample of their homemade tacos! Definitely the best! Quesadillas were just OK. Great atmosphere & service!

Carlos & Pepe's is always on our "Must Do" list when visting the area. The salsa and sauces are so good they are beyond description. Service is efficient in a comfortable environment. The menu seems larger than other Mexican-inspired restaurants providing something for everyone. The cost per person is a bit higher than expected but the quality of the food... More

Great food. We love Mexican and came here on a recommendation at the last minute. Good Service, though we would have preferred regular searing to pub height tables and chairs. The tacos al carbon were great as were the juevos rancheros .On our list of favorites in Ft, Lauderdale.

I have been at this location nearly a dozen times over the last 10 years and I enjoy the consistent good quality and good service. I have found it to be one of the most consistent Mexican restaurants in the Fort Lauderdale area

Had a very good meal, menu is somewhat typical for Mexican although very entertaining. Found the prices reasonable and service was excellent. Would not hesitate to come back.

Expensive!! Limited menu. Slow service and when one has to ask for something to spice it up beware. For those who say it is best in town you need to get out of town and find real Mexican food. I guess too many snow birds.
