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

We have been to this location too many times to count. It is definitely one of our frequent "go to spots" because it is consistently great food, clean, friendly, long term staff and reasonably priced. We have celebrated many occasions here also. They happily accommodate large parties. The food is delish! I have never had a bad meal here. I... More

Never complain when eating here. The chips and salsa are always appreciated and the meals are always good. Anything with the steak is good there. Weekends usually have live mariachi's.

We really like this restaurant. We go there on occasion when we are in the area visiting friends. They have the best Mexican desserts. The Sopapias are out of this world. Great margaritas too.
