This was a hole in the wall place my family and I happened upon while searching for food in Carpinteria. There was no wait and seated the six of us comfortably. The service was a little bit on the slow side while waiting for someone to take our order, but was made up for in their portion size. I was... More

Delgado's is where the locals go for Mexican food. It's old time with leatherette booths, high ceilings and friendly waitresses. The menu is extensive and everything is good. We love the enchiladas suizas and the avocado salad. The chips and salsa are plentiful and keep coming. The tacos are great, too. You can't beat their margaritas! It's a family restaurant,... More

Saw some bad reviews, and I am not sure why. We had a great experience, and out hostess and waitress were very good. We had a toddler that was a little fussy, and out waitress brought out a bowl of rice almost immediately to calm her down (It worked) Being from the East Coast, maybe I don't know "real" Mexican,...

I grew up in Carpinteria, and Delgado's was around even back then. Family owned and delicious, especially the Sunday menudo!

I ate here two nights of my brief stay in Carpinteria, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great service, wonderful Burritos, good beer. Nice place with tables outside also.

You can find a decent and filling meal here. There's nothing that's a standout. It's typical Americanized Mexican food. Pretty good margaritas and decent chips and salsa. A decent experience all the way around. A decent place to bring family or a group of friends. Service can be hit of miss. We've had great service and we've had service where... More
