Tio Carlos Mexican Restaurant
Tio Carlos, this lively and friendly Mexican restaurant has to work hard to overcome an odd location on top of an older motel and next to a busy street, but once visitors find it they come back time and again. The traditional complimentary chips and salsa are so good that you must remind yourself to save room for the entree. Combination plates are popular, such as the Shredded-Beef Taco Plate or the Chicken Enchilada Plate. A full bar is available; try a Margarita or one of the numerous brands of Mexican beer.
Right down the street from my daughters place. We walked here for lunch. All I can say is chile rellenos! These stuffed peppers are a thing of joy. All of the sauces here are so authentic tasting and the queso is smooth with a spicy hint. Great lunch even if the location is odd!
First, the best margaritas in town are at Tio Carlos. You can't drink just one, they're that good. Three generations of my family have dined here for over thirty years, and I can't remember anyone of them ever leaving unsatisfied. The place is personal, often with family members serving you. I don't want to start naming all the dishes that are good or exceptional, because I don't have enough space and I might leave some out, but the Lobster Puerto Nueva jumps to the forefront. Lobster and margaritas with friendly family style service, it doesn't get better than that. Thank you for your military service and a great place to dine.
I was just reading the reviews and surprised to read even that one bad one because I eat there all the time and have never had bad food. I am 100% mexican and the food at Tio Carlos is VERY authentic. They also have healthy + Vegitarian options like frijoles de la hoya instead of refried beans if you are watching your weight. Fajitas are amazing!!!! Lobster Puerto Nuevo style is well worth the wait!!! Instead of driving to Puerto Nuevo drive to PL. Drinks are always strong and super yummy!!! Complimentary chips and salsa better than any other place!! Service was great. the building is old but that's never stopped me. Plus they have a great terrace if you want to RSVP for a party out there AND you can order MARGARITAs by the pitcher! :)
Best Mexican resturant ever! Don't be decieved by the location, the food is amazing and worth a visit. I've had the chimichangas, chile relleno, nachos, lobster, carne asada, and the many great drinks they serve. Everytime I go the food is consistently great and the sauce they serve over the chimichangas and nachos is unbelievalbly, mouth watering, GREAT. Go see for yourself - you won't be disappointed.

I am full Mexican and this is the first restaurant that I have ever been to that I can say is REAL Mexican food. They make all their food as if you were in a real Mexican home. I went there to try their enchiladas suizas and they taste just like my moms. They use fresh ingredients and provide excellent customer service.
