From Our Editors
One of the most-visited Tex-Mex restaurants in Peoria, Carlos O'Kelly's has a flavorful menu. The relaxed environment and reasonable prices allow visitors to focus on what matters: the outstanding food.
It should be noted that business casual is the recommended attire. Also, though the overall price can be a bit on the low side, you won't be sacrificing any quality. In fact, you should be able to enjoy a good meal for $11 or $12, and can probably get in and out for $8 if you try.
For those who are interested, the robust menu does feature items that are gluten-free, low-fat, and vegetarian. Plus, it's been tabbed as a nice option for both families with children and large groups. In addition to its convenient take-out offerings, the restaurant even provides catering for events around town. Or, if you just want to pop in for a beverage, the restaurant does have a pretty decent selection at its bar.
One of the better traditional Mexican joints in the area, making a trip to Carlos O'Kelly's is never a bad call.
