Absolutely great customer service

The customer service here was wonderful. The food was great. Even the salsa and bean dip they give you with the chips before your meal was awesome. I do recommend this place.

Ok, I'll admit it...I am not crazy about Mexican food but it was the last day of my guys trip to California and we had yet to get any Mexican food, which he loves. My sister is from Roseville and always suggested a certain place. I wanted something a little more intimate and checked out TripAdvisor. Up popped Carmelita's so... More

Haven't eaten here since I moved to So Cal. and enjoyed their restaurant in RSM. The original is still the best, my wife said the taco was the best she has ever eaten, "delish". I could say because she wouldn't share. They served pickled onions with my meal which I just loved. Good food and wonderful dinning experience.

Carmelita's is a small, dimly lighted treasure with good food, comfy atmosphere and great service. Parking is tricky (think narrow beach town streets) but worth a few trips around the block. The chips are warm and fresh and the margaritas are ice cold. Portions are large and the enchiladas are filled to plumpness and covered with lots of homemade sauce.... More

Atmosphere and service have improved but every other Mexican restaurant serves menudo in Sat and Sun. Not here only on Sun. Very disappointing.

We have eaten here several times and each time we have a good experience and enjoy the food. The warm dip is great! The Mexico City Tacos are delish...the perfect meal size.

Our group of four went on a Tuesday around 6:30pm and found the place nearly empty with a vacant parking spot directly in front. It's about time I got this lucky. I've been here several times and consider Carmelita's better than average but priced a little on the high side. This visit, we discovered a different interior layout, larger bar... More

Had a late dinner with cocktails. We enjoyed enchiladas, carnitas and the bread pudding for dessert. All were excellent. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the servers were friendly and pleasant.

I grew up in Roseville, and I absolutely love this place! This was my family's go-to spot for special occasions; we also took visitors from out of town here. We are all very picky about our Mexican food, and this places satisfies every time. The food- It's delicious. It's authentic. The portions are exactly right (How do they do that?!)... More

My wife and I ate here over a year ago, and finally went back. The food was great the first time and continues to be great. They remodelled some of the inside and it made a great difference. If you haven't eaten here lately, you must try it. The guac was perfect, the chips were warm and not the cheap... More
