Carmelita’s was founded in 1983 by Carmen and Vincent Lopez, with the opening of the Park Street location in St. Petersburg, FL.  After 39 years, what started off as just 9 booths have now grown to 5 locations in and around Pinellas County.

With the help of many family members and countless loyal employees, they continue to bring the same great dishes to your table, while also looking forwards to the ever-evolving food culture.  Step into any Carmelita’s and you will experience the same level of devoted service and the famous recipes that made us one of the most beloved Mexican restaurants in town!
