I love their chips and salsa! Plenty of cilantro in the salsa so it's perfect. I always get the steak fajitas and they are the best I've ever had! Definitely try Carmelita's!

I'm a vegetarian and there were two labeled options on the menu. I had the vegetarian combo and I liked that there was a spinach enchilada option instead of just cheese. The guacamole toastado had a good amount of guac on it. Our waiter was knowledgeable about what side items were vegetarian. I had black beans which were delicious! I ... read more

Excellent food. Well worth the wait outside in the cold wind on Cincodemayo � just not a fan if their "nachos". A taco shell with beans smoothed across the top and cheese melted on it. Looking for more if the traditional tortilla chips stacked and toppings scattered on with cheese melted. Best salsa I ever tasted!

Pretty Good
Not the best I've ever had, but decent. It was nice to have a selection of sides besides rice and beans. I opted for the salad and rice. I noticed most folks at nearby tables ordered the corn, must be pretty good. Service was fast and friendly. And the food came out pretty quick. Another bonus for me was that I could order a small bo ... read more

This is my wife's favorite Mexican restaurant. The chips and salsa with extra cheese sauce are tremendous. When the basics are so tasty, then the rest of the meal is going to be good, too. We went there on a Wednesday, but there was a big crowd because of their daily special.
