Talk about good food, unique menu and great atmosphere, Carlitos has it all. Spicy baby back ribs are the best.

Food was ok. Bean salsa was the best thing. Service not good. Drinks not good.

This restaurant has so much good-vibes energy and great atmosphere! The drinks and food are tasty and fun. It’s like an all-year Fiesta celebration ? ?

Decent. Run of the mill SB Mexican joint. Great for families and celebrations, a tad pricey but food won’t disappoint. They have “pitchers” of margaritas, serves 4 for $52, so it’s cheaper than buying 4 margaritas! Only serve black beans, no pinto beans ?.

So much food. We have leftovers! Gotta try the roasted eggplants and guacamole quesadilla. Such a different way to have eggplant.

Return visit after 7 years; good food and nice service but beware of the unisex bathroom facilities! There was a reason for separate toilets, behaviour in their use is different for men and women. Women really don’t want to walk in urine on the floor!

Great cafe. He is already 45 years old. I don’t know how it was before, but now there is a wonderful atmosphere, delicious food, great comfort. We tried many different dishes and liked them all. The atmosphere is just perfect for the weekend. We come here every time we are in Saneta Barbara. The cafe is located at the very beginning of the pedestrian street. There is parking available for 90 minutes. I recommend visiting.Parking: There is also paid parking along the street.
