I LOVE Carlos O'Kelly's Food, even though I realize it might be only because I've worked there over a year. My favorite is the queso dip or margarita chicken fajitas, and I also like the fries and O'Kelly burger. The magaritas are delicious and low-priced too, and the fruit flavored ones are made with real fruit, not fake syrups. The salsa is made with fresh veggies right in the restaurant, as well as the pico de gallo and guacamole. They also offer a 100% gluten-free menu, and how many restaurants can say that? Not a lot.
It may not be the best or cheapest mexican food in town, but it's certainly not the worst. There is a large variety and you can substitute almost anything for no charge. They have everything from traditional mexican dinners like enchiladas with beans and rice to creative dishes such as Pasta Diablo. They also have healthier choices with lower fat and calories like Pico Enchiladas.
I have had COUNTLESS customers tell me in person how much they love this place. We get lots of people driving all the way from Champaign just to eat there because they don't have a Carlos there.
Most of the servers are excellent and give great service, mostly because over half of them have worked there for years. Food is usually cooked very quickly and you will get your food quickly unless it's an exceptionally busy night.
And as for the name, the reason it's called Carlos O'Kelly's is because it was established by mexican and irish railroad workers who wanted to start a restaurant together.
So please don't be prejudiced just because of the name or pricing. It's excellent food and everyone who likes traditional and/or innovative mexican food
