First time coming. Everyone telling me how great it was. Unfortunately i was disappointed. Went there with a group for work upon entering hostess was very nice. I informed who i was with and when she began to instruct a waiter to take me another lady came and said "no she can go by herself it's right down the hall to your right and she'll figure it out". Keep in mind I had never been here. Waiter that took our order was not very keen on having to tend to us either. To be honest the busboy helping the waiter was MUCH more polite than the waiter. I had i expectations and thought if I enjoyed myself I would return. That is not my thought any longer. The food unfortunately also was not so great. The plate itself was extremely hot but the food was barely warm. My steak was too chewy and I had a hard time chewing it. I have to return in 2 weeks due to work and I hope it is a much different experience, one that is MUCH more pleasant.
We've going to Carlos&Mickey's for years. It used to be in my Top 3 restaurants, not only in El Paso but ever. Not only for the great food,but also the service. Unfortunately, tonight change our opinion about this favorite place. When we went there, it was very busy. We were told that the waiting time was 40minutes, but it could be less. After waiting 1 hour, when I went to inquiry the situation, especially because we were with our 6-month-ol son, I was told there were 1 more party before us and then it was our turn. Then the party before us got paged. When we were getting ready, they paged another party, totally skipping us. I went to ask them what was going on and why they took the party who came after us, up front. They claimed we were the next again. When finally they paged us, the hostess decided to take her time before she walked us to our table. And here is another surprise; we were given a half booth, where me and my husband has to sit next to each other, facing a WALL with our baby on the only open side of the booth. I objected and requested to see the manager. And all we heard was "sorry, we are trying to accommodate everybody, you need to wait more for another table!" After over an hour of waiting, they gave us a table squeezed a corner, probably used for server...We left right away and I am not planning on going back. I just hope that my baby will not get sick after spending over an hour at the entrance, in this cold weather.
P.S: By the reviews, I see that their service quality declined dramatically!!!

Carlos N Mickeys is the first that comes to many El Pasoans' minds when thinking of a traditional place to take friends for a Margarita. The Margarita's are still large but no longer unique.
For the dated atmosphere (which feels unfashionably grungy), the poor service, and the average margarita's this establishment no longer lives up to it's reputation.
I recommend Julio's Cafe Corona or Barrigas Restaurant

I've been to this restaurant several times and have not been satisfied with anything. The food is average and the wait staff is a bit slow (on all levels). Even the sopaipillas were ""Americanized"". I know that people like to go and hang out at the bar, but I think you're better off somewhere else.

This is a beautiful place. The decor is just what you're looking for when you go out to a Mexican restaurant. Nice patio section, too. Service quality is variable, but the Margaritas are always good. The main problem with this place is that the food is very bland - looks Mexican, but doesn't taste Mexican. Usually crowded, but nobody goes there for the food. Eat somewhere else and then go to Mickey's for the drinks and ambiance!
