Carlos O’Kelly’s Mexican Café is a chain Mexican restaurant and bar with locations throughout nine Midwestern United States. One reviewer described the food as “the best non-Mexican Mexican food in the world.” The location in Marion, Iowa, however, boasts more than that though.


Several sources cite incidents such as unplugged blenders starting by themselves, flickering lights, and moving objects, such as plates inexplicably falling off racks. Although there are no known theories as to who is haunting the restaurant and why, perhaps the haunt is just trying to mix him or herself a margarita.
