I ordered the Pambazo which by itself was delicious but the menu says it comes with fried potatoes. Being at a Mexican restaurant, I didn't expect that to be French fries with two ketchup packets. If you're going to serve French fries, serve French fries, but I was expecting a Mexican dish that included fried potatoes and was quite frankly, embarrassed eating them as if I ordered off of the kids menu.

Fairly typical mexican joint. Good food, good portions. Salsa is just ok. Regular is too plain, hot is too spicy. Mix the two and it's about right though.

We arrived in Charleston five years ago famished and hungry and Carmen Y Juan's was the very first place we turned to. It's become our go-to ever since. Excellent quality Mexican food in a family friendly environment.

My wife and I joined friends for dinner at this establishment last night. I was born and raised in Southern California and have lived pursuing really tasty Mexican Restaurants nationwide. Carmen Y Juan’s set a high water mark for me last night. Great service, fresh fresh food, delicious flavors, wonderful relaxed atmosphere. Both my wife and I agree on the fact that Carmen Y Juan’s is that good! Highly recommend it!

Small place with decent size bar. Menu had good variety throughout. California burrito was large but was mostly rice, very little chicken. Sergio's burrito was pretty tasty but also small...left hungry. Should never leave a Hispanic restaurant hungry...or thirsty. The beer I ordered would've been great with dinner if I had gotten it.

So in general I enjoy this place and try to visit as it is a privately owned business. However most recent experience was off putting. I stopped by for a snack as I missed lunch and didn't want to ruin my dinner. I bought a Margarita and large queso with chorizo. However when I went to checkout I realized I was being charged for 3 orders of chips as I didn't buy a full meal and apparently the queso didn't come with chips. I tried to respectfully address this with the owner, but despite the fact I was already paying $17 for a margarita and queso, he still felt it appropriate to charge for 3 orders of chips despite my complaints. If you need to make a profit I get it raise your price on queso to include chips and I understand not wanting to be taken advantage of by people ordering water and eating free complimentary chips and salsa, but this was clearly not me.

The food and service here is excellent. The appetizer (pictured) was one of the most interesting tastes I've ever experienced, and the chips and salsa were very good as well. The taquito entree was quite good, but I'd recommend selecting a meat other than the ground beef, as it was a little bland. Other than that, I really enjoyed eating here and highly recommend this restaurant to others.

I've been here twice. The first time, I had the carnita tacos. They were good for the area. I was excited to bring my husband...but we were both sadly disappointed. He ordered fajitas that were wet, soggy and greasy from added greasy, not a saute or grill. I can't remember the name of my dish, it's in the posted picture. It was extremely inedibly salty and came with French fries 😂 authentic food is hard to get around here...and sometimes it tastes like a punishment. I gave 2 stars because the tacos were good. The salsa and chips are fresh and tasty. The waiter the first time was pleasant. The second time (no they weren't busy) was gruff and didn't check on us to see that I was only picking around the food because I was very hungry. I miss restaurants in King County Was and Coastal California where Mexican food is served with pride...the food here tastes like punishment

Delicious food!! This is a local gem! Sort of like a hidden secret! The food is phenomenal at this establishment. Hand made chips- trust and believe there is a big difference in the taste. Everything is fresh made to order. If you want some true Mexican food, make a trip to Carmen Y Juan’s! They have won awards for their food as well! No surprise there though. It’s amazing!

I really enjoyed dining at this place. The owner, Juan, came out and brought our drinks and we had a good talk about where he was from and how the restaurant came to be. The food was great! The tacos had great flavor and the fried stuffed jalapenos were awesome, but be warned, they pack a punch! Try the hibiscus margarita. Actually try any of the margaritas. After a hot day walking around Old Village, the drinks left little to be desired. Even the free chips and salsa were delicious. It seems that they make their own chips, which to me, gives then a distinct advantage over your regular old Tex Mex place that one seems to frequently come across in the lowcountry. The food is pretty authentic but the salsas that come with the food were the only thing that I wanted more from. I'm used to having at least two homemade traditional salsas with some kick, but it could be that that stuff doesn't add much value considering the area.

Amazing people and amazing food. Local, mom n pop and family. Food is great- fresh ingredients made with care and it shows and also tastes as such. The street taco platter is our favorite dish. The sauces and salsa are so fresh and flavorful. I cannot say enough good comments about this restaurant- 🙂

The food here was delicious! The cheese sauce is incredible, as is the salsa! Their fresh chips are amazing. I got the rice bowl with guacamole and shrimp and I definitely loved it. The service was great and the food came out really quickly, especially considering there were five of us. We all loved our food and recommend it highly!

Had chicken tamales for lunch and they were yum. Four stars because, of course, I didn't sample the whole menu. My friends were extremely happy with their food. The server was outstanding but it wasn't busy so I can't say how well we would have been served during a busy period. She was so outstanding, in fact, that we mused that she might be the owner or co-owner. I would go back in a heartbeat.
