Carlos Mexican Bar and Grill – Frisco

After my hike at McCullough Gulch, I tried to find some food in the Breckenridge area but the first place I stopped by was closed for deep cleaning. Downtown Breckenridge was incredibly busy, which was great to see, but was also impossible to find a spot.

So I headed back to the highway and at the last moment spotted Carlos Mexican Bar and Grill in Frisco. It was was like an oasis in a desert.

Chips and Salsa from Carlos Mexican Bar and Grill

I started off with the chips and salsa. The salsa was a little bit different. There were nice big pieces of sliced tomato’s and onions. It was almost like a pico de gallo because the chunks were so big. I really liked it.

I was going to order the main meal next but my waiter, Zach, turned me on to the daily special at Carlos. They offer half priced appetizers for and the house margarita for only 6.95 from 11am – 6pm. That was enough to get me to order the table side guacamole.

Zach made the guac, which consisted of 1 and half avocado’s, tomato’s, onion, lime juice, cilantro and chopped Serrano peppers. This was one of the freshest and tastiest guac’s I have had. The avocado was especially fresh and the flavor just jumped off the chip to me. I would highly recommend it.

Zach told me that they are known for their steak so I had to try a couple of steak taco’s.

Steak Tacos, Rice and beans from Carlos Mexican Bar and Grill

The steak taco’s came with pico, lettuce, and cheese on corn tortilla’s and a side of beans and rice. First off I would like to challenge anyone to take a bite of these taco’s and not have the overflowing toppings fall on the plate. They were stuffed to the brim with steak and veggies.

The steak was really good. I am not exactly sure what it was marinated in but I felt like there was a touch of lime and the flavors mixed in really well with the rest of the toppings.

Speaking of mixing, the rice was perfect to mix together with all those toppings that fell out. It was almost like getting a bonus “fork taco” when you mixed it all together with the rice!

I’m not much into beans but figured I would give them a shot today. I swear the beans were cooked in bacon or some sort of bacon product because they had a sweetness to them but also that rich bacon flavor. They were some of the best I have had.

Well if you find yourself in Frisco and are looking for a place to eat, head over to Carlos and give them a shot. I really enjoyed my time, from the service to the food it was all really good.

They are located near the junction of I-70 and Summit Blvd. I have added this restaurant and all of the restaurants on my interactive map section you can find here.
