Carlos Cajun Mexican Restaurants
Clad in floppy sombrero, the Carlos cartoon crawfish leans fearlessly against his cactus, a plateful of steaming Mexican food in hand for all to see. This emblem is an apt evocation of the eatery's culinary aesthetic––traditional Mexican dishes kicked up a notch with Cajun flair. Sure, the restaurant keeps things authentic with cheesy enchiladas and chili rellenos, but along with chicken or steak, skilled chefs insulate tortillas with bayou-style crawfish, shrimp, and even crab. Margaritas help to soothe mouths after spoonfuls of spice, as do imported beers and tongue massages administered with aromatic guacamole.
