If it is Mexican food you are craving then Dos Carlitos is a must. Serving the best Mexican food in the Santa Ynez Valley, Dos Carlitos’ dishes feature fresh quality ingredients cooked over an open fire grill that give each entree it’s own delicious smokey flavor.

While you are trying to make up your mind on what to order from their extensive menu of mouth watering Especialidades, help yourself to the chips with black bean and corn salsa. Add a side order of their homemade guacamole for an extra treat. Dos Carlitos’ most popular dish is the Rock Shrimp Soft Tacos. My favorites? Hmmmm…Definitely the Sizzling Fajitas Platter or the Enchilada Suizas Verde or the Chicken Quesadilla. No matter what you order each bite is a tasty delight!

Dos Carlitos also offers the best deal going in the Valley. Their daily happy hour is between 4pm and 6pm and feature premium margaritas with 100% Blue Agave Tequila. Be sure to sit at the bar where they will also treat you one of their fabulous appetizers – all for only $5!! Be forewarned however, once you get a taste of those freshly made taquitos or quesadillas you’ll be moving the party to a table for dinner.

6/19/11 – UPDATE  Good news for all you dog owners who like to bring their best friends along…Santa Barbara County has lifted the ban on dogs! Restaurants that have patio dining may now allow pets if they choose. Dos Carlitos is now pet friendly and you may dine on their patio and have fido (or in my case, “Gracie”) beside your table. Yay!  There are still some rules which would prohibit dogs so be sure to inquire at other establishments.

  • My husband and I were in Solvang this past weekend for the Solvang Century bike race. What a beautiful place! We happened to find Dos Carlitos on your blog and decided to try it. GREAT RECOMMENDATION! The food was beyond delicious. Perfect after a long day of burning calories :)

    Thanks for noting which are ¨dog friendly¨as these are places we will avoid. Many dog owners think allowing Fido to sniff people is cute, we don´t, especially in an eatery.
