Flavorful Food

"Delicious! A pleasant surprise for Mexican food in the Midwest. I thought I was having street tacos in Tijuana, without the craziness of being there and in exquisitely clean conditions!" - Yelp Reviewer

Always FreshUnlike most resturants, we won't ever reheat our food.

Low cost Fresh ingredients that don't break the wallet

Stir fry that you wished your abuela made

A dish that starts with top quality beef and then is blended perfectly with caramelized onions, tomatoes, ají amarillo (yellow pepper). It is then tossed with a blend of spices and laid over a bed of French fires, and served with rice.

This popular Peruvian dish will leave you wanting more!

Six-Pack Tacos

Soft buttery corn tortillas that are topped with pork, steak, onions, cilantro and carnita sauce.

All this for $7.99, we guarantee that you can not find a better deal in Columbia!

Carlito's Experience

Upon entering Carlito's Cabo, there is an immediate feeling of being at home. The ambiance is calm in spite of the lively music, there is no fussiness in the decor and it is all very clean. The welcome is so warm and delightful that one gets the impression of being part of the family.
