Welcome to Dos Carlitos Restaurant & Tequila Bar!
Dos Carlitos was conceived from a long-standing desire to bring Santa Ynez Valley the bold Mexican and Latin flavors from my family’s two restaurants, Carlitos Café y Cantina in Santa Barbara (Est. 1979) and Cava Restaurant & Bar in Montecito (Est. 1997).
The Dos Carlitos experience combines many elements: La Parrilla, our open fire grill, imparts a smoky essence to our authentic grilled especiales and delicious salsas; our comal fills the air with the aroma of fresh handmade tortillas; the tequila bar offers an extensive collection of over 60 premium 100% Blue Agave tequilas.
Dos Carlitos is a place for friends and family to enjoy a relaxed outdoor patio or a casual indoor setting with sunflower-colored walls and a cozy fireplace.
We hope to see you soon! -- Carlos Lopez-Hollis, Owner
