Both of us ordered something different and both found our meals to be excellent. The chips, salsa, margritas and service were exceptional. We went out of our way to eat here---a friends recommendation--and it was well worth it.

We went for the BOGO fajitas. I got the chicken, hubby got the beef. The rest of the table (6 in all) also got beef or chicken. Two of us decided the chicken was very dry and my husband wished he he'd ordered his meat less well done. The salad, guacamole, sour cream, great salsa and homemade tortillas saved the... More

Good basic Mexican food. Several locations in Pinellas county and quality is consistent. Good service. Really good salsa. The chicken mole enchilada is special.

Never write reviews but the service tonight was horrible. Excellent customer service is highly important to me and this place just does to offer that.

One of the best Mexican meals in a long time. Restaurant is in an odd part of town with several other ethnic eateries outside the norm.

I am back in the Clearwater area visiting my family. I had lived here 35 yrs but moved to Utah in 2011. Carmelita's has several locations but I had never eaten at one. We were driving down 580 and I noticed they had taken over the spot Spoto's Steak House had been so we decided to give it a try... More

Very good food. I had one of the combo dishes with a golden taco, an enchilada, and a toastada with black beans and mex rice along with a tall dark Dos Equis. Wife tried the steak enchilada that she enjoyed. The steak was well seasoned and tender. She also really enjoyed the sangria. Atmosphere was average. Service was very good.... More

I had gone with my husband who was very excited to share this place with me. I ordered the special of the day and a sangria. Our food came, and mine was still a bit frozen in the middle. The sangria was...meh...and I won't be back. There are way better places out there who take pride in their food...this is... More

Dined here twice during our stay! A nice place to dine away from the beach. The food is plentiful and a good value! Great service! They enjoy taking care of you!

Went for the first time with coworkers for a birthday celebration. Waited 30 minutes at 5PM on a Monday night that was not crowded. Rude service. They acted like they were doing us a favor. Would not give one desert to the birthday girl with a table of 8 with dinners and drinks because we had to celebrate 2 days... More
