The guy at the hotel recommended this place and he was right - great food. It was close to the hotel, the food was great, and the portions were generous.

Great local Mexican restaurant. The food is amazing. When my kids come back to town they want to go to Carlito's. I recommend the sour cream enchilladas!

I want to like Carlitos in Longview. The owner is polite and trained in his art. The staff moves swiftly. The place is convenient and clean, rather nice, has real cloth tablecloths and napkins and great atmosphere for ladies who lunch. But, the chips are cold and tough and the salsa is too hot. The menu is varied but the... More

This place has the best refried beans in East Texas and they are Vegan friendly. Their service is always superb and they go out of their way to make our dining experience friendly and tasty.

I don't know why this place isn't packed day and night. The sour cream chicken enchiladas with sliced pickled jalapeño is to die for. Their location is a bit out of the way. A person has to know where it is to find it. I would suggest more effective marketing. My favorite for Mexican food in longview.

I'm originally from Houston and they know how to do Mexican. When you are tired of your canned beans and rice from a box head over to Carlito's. The food is fresh. The staff somewhat friendly. But most importantly it's authentic. The best huevos rancheros this side of Mexico and the pickeled veggies hit the spot. The salsa is spicy... More
