We were seated quickly. The waitress was not attentive at all. We practically had to flag her down to get what we wanted.l did not get what I asked for. I wanted cheddar cheese poppers and got cream cheese poppers. I wanted ground beef for everything on my combo platter and got shredded and cheese filled. Our poppers were too... More

You could miss this location, but we were glad we turned around, fought traffic, and gave it a try. We had prompt service and were very impressed with the ample taco salads we ordered. The menu is varied. The start-off chips with excellent homemade salsa set us in a receptive mood.

We went to Carmelita's on Cinco De Mayo, so the wait was understandable. They did allow us to order drinks from the bar and take them outside, and that day there was a 2/$10 margarita special. Lots of people outside and so that helped the time to go by quickly, which was probably 45 minutes. The food was really good... More

We made a reservation because we had a party of 15 celebrating my nephew's birthday. We were greeted promptly and placed our orders. Received our drinks, chips and salsa for all, and were waiting for our food. The 8-year-old with us quietly showed her father the two baby cockroaches that were on the inside of the lid of the styrofoam... More

Average Mexican. Chips and salsa were ok but nothing special. Entrees were fine also. Beans were only room temperature, not really warm at all. There has to be better Mexican around here for lunch.

Service was good. Food was tasty but nothing to write home about. If you are looking for a decent Mexican joint this is not a bad spot.

Runing errands and in the mood for some Mexican food? Keep driving past Carmelitas and on to one of the areas many small mom and pop mexican joints. The food is is mediocre at best. The chips taste like they opened a bag. Not homemade there for sure, espcially seeing th occasional red and green ones that may be sprinkled... More
