This branch of the chain that advertises itself as "world famoso" is a great place for a Mexican meal or a drink on the malecón. Servers prepare a delicious salsa with a traditional molcajete, or mortar and pestle, right at your table, and serve it up with chips to start. The menu itself is printed in the form of a small newspaper with the main headline reading "For the 9th Consecutive Year, Carlos 'n Charlies is Not on the List of the 1,000 Best Restaurants
in Mexico." Maybe not, but it does offer some excellent dishes like baked salmon covered in a sesame crust and served with sautéed mushrooms in U.S.-style surroundings that will make you feel like you're back home. Also look for the solid take on staples such as hamburgers and grilled-cheese sandwiches.
