great place! both the food and the staff were amazing! the patio is a good enough reason to go. the brisket tacos are a mus try!!!!
My favorite patio and awesome sunset fajitas – Carolina's is my under the radar favorite Mexican restaurant. Always good food and never a long wait like you can get at Mi Cocina. I love their fajitas and last time a friend recommended I order their "Sunset fajitas" which aren't on the menu but are amazing. I highly recommend them.
High Class Mexican Food – Margarita's on the patio! Ole and happy frijoles! This place has a huge patio, overlooking some kind of canal with lattice work pergolas and such. Heck just look at the pictures. Very quiet, no traffic noise. Just the gentle sound of crunching chips all around.
The 70 degree weather was just great to eat parilladas in the shade. I know you're wondering was the heck are parilladas? Well, they look like, taste like, and smell like fajitas. So why don't they just call them fajitas and be done with it? Beats me, but a whichever they were, I ate all on my plate with relish, gusto and delicious flour tortillas. At least they still call a tortilla a tortilla!
The sides were really good as well, especially the guacamole and pico de gallo. A full ice-cream scoop of tasty guacamole and pico needed their own plate, they were so big. The rice and refried beans also came on their own plate. A large plate of sizzling fajitas and the table was full up. Three plates (four, if you include the tortillas) all for ME! I'm still full, and this was almost eight hours ago. Easily splittable for two. Please, don't try to eat it all in one meal. At least take some home with you. No mas! (At least not until manana).
My wife had the lunch special # 5, 2 cheese enchiladas with chili con carne, rice and beans. ($7.95). She said it was delicious and, "just the right sized lunch for ONE" (her own emphasis) as she stared with disdain at my empty plate. (Pause while I relive my gluttonous shame -- OK, that's enough).
Needless to say, there was no room for dessert.
So, why no five star review. Well, I'm a tough reviewer and that fifth star doesn't come easy. The only thing I didn't absolutely enjoy, was the rather weak salsa. I mean, if the salsa doesn't singe my tonsils, there's no 5 star! Besides, I haven't known Carolina's well enough to give up my 5th star so easily. What kind of reviewer do you think I am.
great food, reasonable price – This restaurant should be packed every night, and I predict it will be when people learn of its existence. It is better than Mi Cocina and less expensive, and the staff is friendly. Also we like that there is plenty of room, and one never feels crowded or rushed. Try their homemade flan if you want to have a taste of heaven on earth!
Went with a big group and loved it – We met a big group of friends at Carolina's the other night and had a great time. The happy hour was awesome. They have $2 pints of draft beer every day until 7pm and of good draft beers (probably 30 choices). I know there are also daily margaritas and mixed drink happy hour specials but since I was drinking beer. I am not sure what they were.
The restaurant / bar feels more like a place you would find in Uptown Dallas and not far north Dallas / Plano. The food was definitely impressive. There weren't a ton of people there on early weekday night but it actually worked out better for our large group because we got lots of attention from the bartenders.
In general we had lots of fun there and the sopapillas at the end of the night definitely hit to spot.
Awesome Patio!! – When Carolina's opened this summer, it started as a neighbor gem but as reviews are coming out more and more people are realizing it is there and it is good.
The restaurant is in the shadow of 190 and probably a half mile from the intersection of 190 and the Tollway.
The brisket tacos are the bomb and the tres leches cake is to die for. Mostly I would say get there early order a margarita and go out back and sit on their big patio and BS about life while enjoying the patio and wandering why more Dallas restaurants and bars don't have patios like theirs.
Beautiful restaurnat and more importantly, great food – Great location to meet up, at the intersection of the 2 tollways
Food is awesome! Mole sauce on anything, brisket tacos, ceviche to name a few
Drinks! La Bomba is great and they have at least 20 beers on tap
Prices are very reasonable
Atmosphere puts you in Mexico and the patio is is huge and well decorated to give you an authentic Mexico feel
Service was great so far everytime I've been
Still looking for a con.... I'll add it when and if I find one!
Hidden Treasure !! Beautiful, Wonderful Dining Experience ! – It took me a few minutes to find, almost decided not to go in, BUT BOY WAS I GLAD I DID!
GREAT FOOD, everything ordered was wonderful, fresh, and beautifully prepared. And VERY affordable, we fed 8 for less than $100.00
Absolutely beautiful, so many diffent areas to discover..very Contemporary, Retro, and Modern, and still so very Inviting. I was suprised by the outside patio, very tranquil and the outdoor fireplace and social sitting area, made for a very entertaining evening. I went with a party of 8, all different ages, and EVERYONE had a great time. Families feel very welcomed. Also, I noticed a few couples have a beautiful romantic evening, uneffected by our boisterous group. As the seating areas are VERY well planned.
I will be back again and again, I plan to review after a visit on a week-end, was told that it is The Place-to-Be.
Great Mexican Food and an awesome patio – I would say the things that make Carolina's stand out from the crowds of Mexican food restaurants in DFW are the food, the patio and the bar. The food across the board has a little more thought effort and quality ingredients. The patio is huge and covered with a kind of clear covering that lets sunlight in. There are fans and heaters out there to help mitigate the swings of North Texas temperatures but it makes a nice oasis to sit outside and eat or have a drink. There is a bar outside but the bar inside it the really impressive one and runs the length of the restaurant. They have all the traditional drinks you might want and also their "La Bomba" which is a tasty sangria infused margarita and also they have probably between 25 and 35 beers on tap which is unique for a Mexican restaurant.
Prized Dallas restaurateur serves Mexican family recipes. – Towering flower arrangements welcome guests as they enter this upscale Mexican eatery tucked in a small shopping strip. Cocktail lovers slurp La Bomba margaritas as they work the bar scene and make requests at the DJ booth. Families get settled into bright yellow table chairs as they decide which sauce should complement their tamale plate. Outside, couples hold hands as they sip Pacifico beers by the fireplace, while single guys peruse the patio scene for taco-eating hotties. Moist tres leches cake continue to stream out of the kitchen to grant an authentic Mexican dinner finale.
