Carlito’s Mexican Restaurant, Grayson GA [CLOSED]

Tucked neatly near the BodyPlex at Moon Road and Ga Hwy 20 is Carlito’s which is fast becoming one of our favorite mexican places.

The flavor of the food is SO much better than the run of the mill, garden variety mexican restaurant it is almost indescribable. GOOD FOOD is probably the most simple and accurate depiction.

The restaurant itself is quite large, complete with an outside covered patio which is especially enjoyable on Sunday afternoons after church when their buffet is open. The buffet is a great deal and features just about anything you’d like.

We went on a Saturday night with another couple. They ordered the fajitas for two, Melanie ordered the quesadillas and I ordered the #4 dinner combo (taco, two enchiladas and rice). As usual, the food and the service were exceptional.

If you’re looking for mexican and you are ANYWHERE near Grayson, Carlito’s is our strong recommendation.

    Have also been here a few times. Concerns over their episode with a VERY low health department score have not deterred us from returning. (though we check score heading in) We have had the buffet once and ordered from the menu several times food has always been good though cannot think of a “stand out” entree Not much for alcohol, and personally I avoid places that have live “music”, I am hard of hearing and the music makes it impossible for me to be a part of teh conversation.

    I haven’t been to this restaurant yet, but probably will in the future (for business networking events they host there) so this interested me. You can look up the health inspection report here:

    The last 3 inspections have been “A” ratings. They had two unsatisfactory ratings in 2008. But based on the last 3 good reports, I don’t have any qualms about eating there.

    We love this place. The best mexican food this side of the Mississippi. The staff is attentive and never rushes you. The food is outstanding and the homemade tortillas keep me coming back. I love the patio in the summer and its an overall relaxing atmosphere. Get parents night out, or celebration with the family.
