If you've been to one O'Kelly's, you've been to them all! Ok Mexican, but definitely American influences!

Kudos to the Kearney Carlos O'Kelly's location. The food was quite good, the service is quick, friendly and attentive. When in Kearney, this is a viable option if you're interested in Mexican food. Close to the interstate and the arena.

Good food. Service impecable. Very friendly. Menu extensive including something for everyone including light menu. Would recommend it. It is right next to all the hotels so easy to get to. Not sure how the Irish name got into a Mexican Restaurant. Pretty funny.
