Carlos is a Spanish name and it fits well for a Mexican Restaurant.
I am almost positive that there is a back-story as to why a Mexican Restaurant has a decidely Irish touch (O'Brien's) to its name.
Suffice it to say that Carlos O'Brien's, on Mayo Blvd in North Phoenix, is our favorite Mexican Restaurant here in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area. We have been visiting here since early 2017 to get nachos.
Get ready to share in our nacho-feast.
Some of the more upscale restaurants here in the Phoenix Metro Area have beautiful cactus gardens associated with them.
A very nice waiting area when the restaurant is busy.
This was our very first in-person live restaurant visit since last February of 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic burst upon all of us. We felt comfortable and our Mayo covid tests have remained negtative. However, we are not planning to begin dining-out regularly.
'Our Table' is at the far end of the below aisle just inside of the entry into the main dining area. We have never ever dined at another table.
We don't need a menu! We always get nachos. The nachos come with corn chips and wonderful salsa.
I think (one time only) we specifically requested the wait staff NOT to bring the corn ships and salsa because it is all we can do to eat the nachos themselves. But they come so rapidly that we don't have time to pass on them. Yes they are also wonderful.
Now to an issue that we really try to stress when we order our nachos.
"Light on the cheese please !"
The above order is light on the cheese.
NOT SO THE BELOW ORDER !!
