Most may not know about Carlos O'Briens being in the Southwest valley, but it is!!! Carlos O'Briens is hidden away south of the I-10 and Avondale Blvd. It is located in the same building as the American Sports Center. The sign is very small and difficult to see from the road. You may have drove by it hundreds of times and not even realized it was there.
For those who know about the other Carlos O'briens locations, the restaurant has been in Phoenix since 1978. They have close to the best Mexican food in the valley. Their specialty is the Pollo Fundito. The Pollo Fundito is a white meat chicken chimichanga, with a jalepeno cream cheese sauce, then smothered with cheddar cheese. Yes, it sounds rich and decedent, and it is! Try any one of their combination dinners or simply pick an ala carte item. Their food will not disappoint.
The chips are always warm and the salsa has the perfect amount of cilantro and spice. They do serve a spicier sauce for an added kick to the salsa. Stop by during their happy hour and take advantage of the $3.95 house margarita or other food and drink speicals. Happy hour is from 3pm-7pm and 9pm-close, everyday.
