Mediocre Mexican May 12, 2010
Another chain Mexican restaurant, what can you say? An average dining experience at best. I went with some co-workers for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon. And, being only 1 o'clock on a Saturday, Carlos O'Kelly's was extemely empty. There was only one other table seated when our group of seven (and a baby) got there. While eating, only one other couple came in. Maybe it's the location, just off Dirksen Parkway, away from shopping centers, but I thought it was rather slow for a Saturday. But, on the flipside, we received excellent service. Our waitress was very attentive and kept refilling the chips (and my water).

I ordered the Pico Enchilada, off the 'Lighten Up' menu. It was better than I expected; a tortilla stuffed with chicken, mushrooms, spinach and fat free cream cheese. A disappointment, though, was the Mexican rice, which is one of my favorite dishes. This looked straight from the packaged brand that we use at home. They also had a Saturday drink special of $5 margaritas (the reason my co-workers wanted to go here; I don't drink, so I didn't care).
