Until recently, a handful of Kosher Mexican eateries have come and gone. Some had good food, but were too costly. Others were inexpensive, but also inconsistent at best. Then, in 2006, Carlos & Gabby's opened their original Cedarhurst location - a modest shop on Rockaway Turnpike near the Long Island Rail Road crossing. It wasn't glamorous, or spacious (they have since moved to their new and spacious location - see below). But unlike their Kosher-Mexican predecessors, Carlos & Gabby's managed to combine a delicious and extensive menu of Mexican favorites, fused with a handful of American classics... not to mention all those great sauces (Tangy BBQ, Avocado Ranch, Creamy Caesar, Mmmm!) This culinary excellence, combined with reasonable prices turned Carlos & Gabby's into so much more than a novelty. In fact, it has now become a landmark on the map of eateries in the Kosher restaurant capital of suburbia. And despite the coincidence, it is not named after two actors from a television show but after a famous restaurant in Mexico, called Carlos & Charlies.

One thing that is very important to the staff is that they aim to keep their prices affordably low while keeping their standards and quality unusually high. They pay close attention to all the details of the products they serve and practically everything they offer is made from scratch - and their customers can really tell the difference. Their bread is always fresh and toasted crispy and every day they start over the difficult but rewarding process of preparing their ingredients, so there’s never a question about how long your meal has been sitting around. All of this is combined with a friendly, helpful staff and a warm and inviting atmosphere that makes Carlos and Gabby’s truly special and different. Their philosophy is very simple - “always make our customer happy. Whatever it takes we want to earn our customers business and satisfaction. We settle for nothing less.”
Nechama- 11/02/14 This is definitely my kids favorite fast food "flaishig" place on Long Island. The chicken fingers are the juiciest and best in town by far! If you order before 3 there are great lunch specials that include fries and soda. Our all time favorite wrap is the Cedarhurst wrap with sizzling pastrami and chicken and the best sauces in the world. There are more private tables off to the left side or you can sit bench style in the center of the restaurant. They even serve a Mexican chulent. Our favorite dipping sauce is the avocado ranch. It's definitely not the most diet friendly place but you can order a salad with grilled chicken pieces which is a lot safer than the sumptuous sandwiches and wraps.
