Well it was our first time there and we were excited when we walked in. The decor is really fun and the ambience seemed great. Our waitress came over quickly and we had drinks in no time. We looked at the menu and found what we wanted to eat right away. My husband had a delicious soup to start and then our main meals were delivered. His burrito looked great but my nachos looked like they had been sitting under the heat lamp for quite a while. We told our waitress right away and she offered to make me new ones, but I was hungry and we were catching a movie so I said no. She then offered me a brownie in compensation. After she saw that I didn't eat hardly anything, she brought my dinner to the manager and told him what had happened. They took my meal off the bill and also brought me a hot brownie. We will go back and try them again since they really made an effort to make things better. So my review is so far is really only based on a one time experience. Hopefully the second visit will be better.

Le service à la cuisine était lent et nos plats ont été servis 1 heure après avoir commandé, et ce, malgré un restaurant relativement vide. Nous avions réservé au préalable et nous nous serions attendus à un meilleur service. L’ambiance est agréable pour un groupe.

Most of our table order the Fajitas since it’s the Wednesday special, we were all a little disappointed that it was mostly onions with very little chicken or beef. The service wasn’t the best, I had to go to the bar for another beer after asking the waitress twice for it.

Enjoyed our evening out, was my wife’s bday. As luck would have it, fajitas were on special $9.95 instead of $19.95, and were very good value at that price. If however that was the “normal” portion for the full price I would’ve been disappointed.
Overall very good, 2 adults,1 child with drinks and dessert $90 tax/tip included

It wasn’t great overall. We made a reservation but when we arrived nothing was prepared. Then we were offered a table that was too small for the party we had. The person seating us seemed a bit bothered by us. Ordered the tortilla soup which was very thick and hearty, more so than other places where it tends to be more brothy. However, it was so spicy my partner couldn’t eat it. He subsequently asked about how spicy the chili was and was told, “well, it is chili” as if all chili’s are spicy and all have the same heat level. Made him feel like an idiot. No offer to pack up food that wasn’t eaten and overall, the cost really didn’t justify the trip. I wouldn’t recommend it. There are plenty of other places you can go where you’ll get better customer service.

Food was great, decor is nice. However, charging customers for an extra small bowl of nachos is ridiculous. Especially considering you always got free nacho refills at the original Carlo's. Most restaurants dont charge for extra bread. This is the equivalent. Overall, still a good restaurant.

Première fois pour nous 2 a cet endroit. Un bon service, beaucoup de choix de cocktails et bières. L'ambiance est bonne et la musique pas trop forte. Point de vue nourriture, les plats végétariens sont assez ordinaires et pas beaucoup de goût. Par contre, mon amie a prit les tacos avec viandes et a bien aimé le goût. Les plats ne sont pas trop dispendieux. Je recommande ce resto à tous!

I ordered the Spicy shrimp appetizer. I did like the size of the shrimp but it needed to be cut in slices to fit in small tortilla. More spicy sauce would have been nice.
The fajita chicken should have been cut into thinner slices as it would have been more eater friendly. Your guacamole needed more seasoning.. very bland.
Jambalaya was good. Our server and service was excellent Can’t remember his name but 128 was his ID
Thanks

Plats décevants par rapport à la description du menu. Ce resto n'est pas authentiquement mexicain; c'est encore un autre restaurant générique et tape à l'oeil faisant partie d'une chaîne. Musique vraiment forte et service de débutant. On nous a même servi le dessert en anglais alors que la serveuse nous a parlé en français le reste du repas. Emplacement au bord de l'autoroute et au milieu d'un grand stationnement donc aucun intérêt pour la terrasse. Très faible rapport qualité-prix.

Overall, a really nice experience. Wait staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food could use a little spice boost. I don't mean in hotness but rather in flavour. While enjoyable just a little lackluster flavour wise. There was nothing that said "Mexican " in the flavour.

Nous étions 10 amis pour célébrer un anniversaire. Endroit très bruyant, mais atmosphère festif et belle attention de la part du personnel pour le "fêter" Bonne bouffe, prix très abordables, bon service, mais il faut garder à l'esprit que c'est une chaîne. Nous avons mangé côté salle à manger, sur une banquette tout au fond. Un peu à l'écart, mais parfait pour un groupe de 10. Une fois notre repas terminé, il a été agréable de traverser prendre un verre sur la belle terrasse.

Took my older parents here to beat the heat on Canada Day. All was good except their compressor unit blew so their air conditioning and refrigeration units were down early in the day. Warm inside and too hot to open the patio.
Need to go back when the air conditioning is up and running and I’m sure it will be 5 stars all the way.

First time at Carlos y Pepe in Vaudreuil! We had a great time, I was impressed with the decoration and the outstanding service! We were sitting inside, but outside, on the terrasse, the decoration looks like a resort in the South! Food was very good, with the possibility to have it very spicy or not spicy at all (my choice) !!!! We had a great time, I highly recommend it!

I love Mexican food - the service and ambiance was great!

What I disliked was being nickeled and dimed for everything, sour cream $2, chips $+, salsa $+, etc

I find it takes away from the experience- I would prefer to have the “expected” extras as part of the cost. Seems cheap to operate this way.

For 2 adults and 3 kids, the meal was over $140 so adding $2 here and there doesn’t make sense to me. I find it mildly insulting but didn’t raise an issue as I was taking my mother out for dinner with her grandkids.

My meal was awesome! I'm a vegan and I had veggie fajitas and sub the sour cream and cheese for more guacamole and lettuce. The flavours were spot on, party in my mouth! The salsa and chips are homemade and fab but they charge for seconds which I was disappointed since other Mexican restaurants that I have been to have always given seconds for free. I also had a Mexican bulldog margarita and it's a must try! My waitress was very friendly and fast service. Can't wait to go back!!!

It was our first time at Carlos and Pepe's and our experience as far as the food was concerned was not favorable.
First of all the atmosphere (we sat on the bar side) was good and the service was excellent which made the experience a little more acceptable. Our waiter was prompt and was always available. The atmosphere on the bar side was fun. (music a little too loud)

I ordered beef enchiladas with mole sauce and my wife ordered the veggie quesadillas. The enchiladas tortilla was chewy and the beef was extremely dry. As well, the pulled beef had not been pulled sufficiently since I had chunks of beef instead of a nice pulled juicy meat.(not fresh) Last but not least both plates did not have much taste to them. We both added chilly sauce for some flavour.
I know about Mexican food and this was not very Mexican.
