Carlos & Pepe's, Montreal, QC

I took a walk late this afternoon along rue Sainte-Catherine. Then I started getting hungry and it was suppertime.

Carlos & Pepe's caught my eye (it's off rue Sainte-Catherine on Peel).

The restaurant is on the main floor and the pub is on the second floor. You have to climb a mountain of steep stairs to get to the pub (this is looking up at them) but that's where I headed.

It's a cute place.

There were only two tables of two people when I got there ... it was getting busy when I left. They have happy hour drink specials 'til 7pm.

You are given warm tortilla chips and salsa when you sit down to munch on.

I ordered Rio Grande Chicken Burrito ... rather than salad, I got extra rice.

It was good and really filling ... I finished the burrito but couldn't eat all the rice.

The burrito must have been part of happy hour pricing because I was surprised was the bill came and the burrito was less than $8 (according to the menu, it was over $12).

I liked the food and the atmosphere ... I'd recommend it if you are craving a burrito. My one complaint would be with the service. My server was very unengaged. Though he wasn't rude, he wasn't friendly at all which is too bad considering he works in a restaurant.

I second High Heeled Life. Very European here, hit and miss when dealing with waiters or any public service person. Enjoy your stay.
