Food is always good whenever we stop here. Been coming here for a few years as we travel back and forth to Santa Fe. Service today was a little rough. Our waiter wasn't on the ball but everyone else was great. Ordered ahead and got 2 dozen yummy jalapeno rolls home and tortillas all made in house. Til next time!!

We had been to Charlie's 20 or so years ago. My memories of it are good. It was as nice as before. The restaurant is a nice café with booths and tables in a large room. Service was pleasant and attentive. Our server even took time to chat with us about our previous visit. We shared a bacon breakfast burrito... More

Most people refer to this place as Charlies Spic and Span. This is a great place for breakfast. I'm just sorry we didn't have time to eat there for lunch and dinner. I think their hours are 6 to 6. The quantities are HUGE so think about that when you are ordering. I had a standard breakfast of pancake (HUGE)... More

Amazing food, authentic New Mexican cuisine. Anytime we are within 100 miles of Las Vegas, we take a detour to the Charlie's "Spic & Span". Green chili, posole and breakfast are our go-to's. We always get baked goods and homemade tortillas to go!

Charlie's is one of those local places that Diners, Drive-ins and Dives do not get to ... their loss. The New Mexican food is as good as any place in Las Vegas and better than typical elsewhere. It is an easy detour off of Interstate 25 and well worth it. Lots of locals and a very convivial patrons and staff.... More

I ordered a burrito with ONLY bacon, papitas and green chili for to go. They made the burrito with a very cold tortilla and they added​ a lot of cheese. They took more than 15 minutes to make it. I never asked for cheese in the burrito. I called them askimg for the manager, and I explained what happened, her... More
