Classic Mexican dishes with award winning Margaritas served on a delightful patio.   They have been in the same location for 40 years. Lunch and Dinner.  $$

Dine out al fresco on your favorite Mexican dishes at this upscale cantina. Just across the street from the Arlington, Carlitos is the perfect place for pre-show dining or a leisurely evening out. If you’re lucky, they might just have live music!
