This is by far one of my favorite places to eat! It is not unusual to walk into a packed house on a workday afternoon. The store has an orange and white roof, which should help you find it. If I thought my heart could handle it,I would eat here daily! It is the perfect combination of melty cheese, piping hot meat, and golden grilled onions! Or you can go for authentic and get a Philly with cheese-wiz. The bread they use is specially ordered and shipped to them. It has a nice crust on the outside and is soft and delicious on the inside! Their fries are always hot and perfect! They have a light batter on the outside and just look great, and are perfectly seasoned. They have chicken sandwiches and burgers too, but the owner says that 90% of their sales are a form of their FAMOUS Philly!Free refills on the fountain drink machine! Always a good thing!Price point is about $10-$11 to make your taste buds smile. It is totally worth in every now and then (or weekly if you are like me and love a good Philly Cheesesteak.I consider myself to be a bit of a Philly connoisseur, and this place has the BEST I HAVE EVER EATEN!

I have been a life long customer, and it kills me to post this negative review. Carlos' has gone down hill. I have been over ten times in six months, and every time I go the restaurant is totally empty. The food is amazing and the price is great(if you can get that price) On my past two visits, the waitress has changed my order to make the bill more expensive. I let it slide the first time, but the 2nd time was enough. The manager was so clueless to business and failed to care that my receipt did not match what I got. I am never going back and would like everyone else to be very aware of your order. I recommend the restaurant for its food, but not for the customer service and waiting staff. Recommended meal: The Don Lupe - $8.55 (I urge you to watch your ticket if you choose to go after reading this)

This place is FANTASTIC! Authentic delicious food, great service. First you get to get as much of anything you want at the salad bar, and the incredible cheese bread, then the amazing meat comes. They have a million choices and you can taste every single one over and over again. My personal favorites are the bacon wrapped fillet, house special, and bottom sirloin. Don't skip the grilled pineapple and fried bananas, they are heavenly. Oh and you HAVE to get the authentic Brazilian Lemonade, it is to die for. The desserts are all fabulous too. There is so much great authentic food for a low price, I come back again and again!
Authentic Mexico City street tacos and Tortas. Very fresh, there's no freezer and no microwave. All made from scratch. Staple items are the chillango tacos, there's 5 small yellow corn tortillas. Just tell the taquero "One of each con todo" and they'll hook you up. They slow cook for 5 hours the carnitas and the barbacoa.Try the Made from scratch Horchata, Jamaica or Lime with Chia!!! All natural.High energy ambiance. The theme or the restaurant is a taco stand in México City, as every taco stand has, they have old TVs playing old movies, novelas and the very first Chabelo episode playing.Great place.

It was our first visit to this restaurant, and we really loved it. The employees were friendly and helpful. The menu was full of various choices and it was hard for me to make a decision on what to order. The prices surprised us, especially when we saw the quantity and tasted the quality of the food! The shrimp was fabulous, very fresh and tasty. The fajitas were very flavorful and more than enough, with yummy tortillas. The borracho beans, rice, tortillas, chips and salsa were all outstanding. We will find excuses to get to that part of Houston to eat there again.
