We had bought 2 Groupons and the time limit was not long enough. Now we have one that we did not use. We are Seniors and do not drive too much. We always took our Aunt to Carlos O'Brien's when she came from WI Now that she is in Heaven We still love the food when we can afford it.

It is too bad it is not a free standing place like the rest of them. I don't think anyone even knows its there Need more visible advertisin and maybe coupons until people become farmiliar with it.

I would recommend with reservations because it is looking run down and even the menus and other items on the table are or look dirty. There is no one to greet you when you arrive and there is a bit of a wait until someone does come to greet and seat you. The food is okay - not wonderful.

Thanks for the Groupon offer. Your food is very good at a good price with great service. We'll be back. I would love you to add Pollo a la Crema to your menu.

The restaurant was awesom, but finding parking was tricky... Had to leave the location to enter through another entrance to have access to the parking lot. Other drivers were doing the same or doing crazy U-turns :-)

This strip-mall restaurant was more like a cafeteria in style with its table set-up. The salsa was ice cold and the food mediocre. The bar was crowded and noisy (not offensive). The service was good but they may want to rethink their atmosphere. Better food, more booths than tables, less very bright lighting and maybe even more of the bar atmosphere would probably turn the restaurant into a neighborhood place where locals like to gather. As it is, you have to drive to the Avondale restaurant and we won't be making that drive again just to eat there when there are better Mexican restaurants closer to us.

From Our Editors

Carlos O’Brien’s began in 1978 as one restaurant in a Phoenix strip mall, but the popularity of its generously portioned Mexican comfort foods steadily garnered a loyal following and allowed the owners to expand to three full-service locations. All three restaurants exercise the same dedication to creating hearty entrees from beyond the border, browning the edges of veggies in trans-fat-free oil and grilling meats over a pile of smoldering habanero peppers. Meals include overstuffed chimichangas with machaca beef and sizzling fajitas with seasoned pork. The chefs’ silken guacamole and savory enchilada sauces add extra layers of homey flavor.
