I love Carmelita's, the food is great, the staff's really nice and the atmosphere is comfortable, relaxed, and welcoming. The complimentary chips and salsa is fresh (if you don't mind heat ask for the hot salsa, it's delicious). The guacamole is really tasty, and the corn is a great side. The prices are great considering how wonderf ... read more

Love Carmelitas for years. The food is great & certain nights the mariachi play their guitars & sing beautifully. I get taquitos, quesadillas or chimichanga ysually. Hubby gets durango combo. Several locations to choose from.

I love this place. My husband and I go several times a week. While it's not authentic, the staff is fantastic and the food is always good. You never feel rushed or like you are a bother (which is hard to find ).

I'm here visiting. Some of the best Mexican food I've ever had. When I ordered a vegetarian meal, the waitress then took extra care to inform me of which sides were veg safe without me having to ask. I appreciate that so much.

Best mexican around.  Some of my favorites are the chicken taquitos (corn shells, for good spice have them add fresh jalapenos inside the taquitos), enchiladas verdes, chicken chimichanga, california burrito with shredded beef, or any combo plate.  Don't miss the chips and fresh salsa.

The service was excellent the food delicious. The mixed drinks—the frozen margarita. And sangria really hit the spot. The facility was very clean. I had the vegetarian plate and it was delicious especially the spinach enchiladas.

Just about the best TexMex one can find outside of Texas. Service is courteous and fast. Food is tasty and there is Mexican beer or Sangria. One of my favorite comfort food places to go. It gets crowded so be patient if you have to wait...it's worth it.

Mediocre Mexican food!
The food was relatively bland, the interior was not very authentic and there were no hard liquor cocktails--the Margueritas were from a wine blend. The service was attentive but the Mariachi band was too close for comfort. I wouldn't go back!
