“Only reason for no five stars is because there is always room for improvement at any establishment.”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

I have been coming to this place for a few years now and I honestly love the place. The food is phenomenal especially if you have the appetite for Mexican style food.

I personally go for their wings every time I get that craving for wings this is the place I always end up going to. Their Charlie wing sauce is amazing. But my favorite is the Cajun flavor sauce. Only complaint for wings is I wish there was more flavors.

The staff does an amazing job keeping the environment fun. They love to interact with the customers especially if you are stopping in to grab a few drinks at the bar. You can even ask them to put on a game to follow your favorite team with all the TV's they have.

I will continue to keep coming here.

Thank you for reviewing our establishment.

We appreciate your honesty and recommendation. We strive to hold up our end with staying consistent when it comes to our wings, and knowing we are your go to "hit the spot" wing joint is outstanding! Adding some more wing flavors could definitely be something we look into, thanks for the suggestion. If you have any ideas as far as flavors you'd like to see let us know!! Our customers input is the most important thing, after all, we're here to serve you!!

Please let us know what we can work on to keep improving and maybe one day get that fifth star!!

The staff is thrilled that you find them entertaining and fun and we hope to have a good time with you soon!

Thank You,

“Food's Yummy :)”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

I like their burgers and shrimp enchiladas! The setting is nice, wish it was bigger though. I wish they gave more fries and gave endless chips and salsa, but I'm a fat kid. LOL! Prices are reasonable, staff is friendly, drinks are great, LOVE THE DESSERT MENU! If you love Mex-American and looking for a good local restaurant, this is the place for you :)

Thank your for taking the time to rate and review our restaurant.

We appreciate your business and hope you continue to visit us!
Here at C & C's we work on doing everything we can to make the customer feel welcome and satisfied. Your feedback is important and it is nice to hear you've enjoyed your time when you have come in to eat.
I don't think we make enough chips in one day for the baskets to be endless, but we can work with you on giving you as many as you can handle! ( Just make sure you save room for those shrimp enchiladas, burgers or DESSERT!! ) :-)

If there is anything else you think we can improve on please let us know!

Thank You,
The Management team of Carlos & Charlies

C and Cs is a place we call "home". The service staff is always courteous and the food is always good and consistent. We've been going there a few times a month for years and will continue!

“Best 'ritas in Lancaster!”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

A group of our closes friends (about 10 of us) choose to spend most "Thirsty Thursdays" at Carlos & Charlies with Kim, the owner, and her daughter, Alexis, who is an awesome server/bartender. Carlos & Charlies has the best margaritas in Lancaster, and the nicest, coolest staff!! The food is terrific, and we always have a great time. My personal favorite is the tostada salad. Their chef is always willing to prepare vegetarian dishes for our vegetarian friends, and the atmosphere is always fun. Definitely one of our favorite spots to enjoy an evening! And you can always catch the game on the tv screens!

It's always a good "thirsty Thursday" when know the "MARGARITA NO SALT LADIES & FRIENDS" are stopping in!!
