Good stop for a quick bite

Great salsa. Sooooooo good. The waitress didn't mind me customizing a vegetarian tostada order, which was nice.

Bought a carry out lunch. Chili Rellenos plate and meat, potato, cheese, and red chili burrito. The rellenos tasted like last month's grease. The beans were ok. The rice was very soggy and tasted like tomato sauce. Everything tasted like it was freshly removed from a can. The burrito was ok but there was a taste I couldn't make out.... More

My family was hungry so we did not have a choice but to come here, since the restaurant was located in the middle of nowhere. There were flies all over the place and the food tasted like it came from a can. The waitress was kind but the restaurant could've done better to improve the food and service.

Great little place, emphasis on little. We always take our orders out. I've only gotten breakfast here and always get the breakfast burrito. Why mess with a good idea? Based on the burritos I've gotten, I would imagine it's all good. This is a great spot for grabbing a really fast, really good breakfast.

We had a delicious lunch here, a ground beef burrito and blue corn enchiladas, both with green AND red chile because we couldn't decide which tasted better! Chips and salsa were very good too. The prices are very reasonable and the service is friendly and quick.

We were hungry and looking for some good Mexican food. We found it at Carmen's! There is room for 20 people if all seats are filled. The atmosphere is welcoming and the smiles are big. The chips and salsa were very tasty. I ordered chicken flat enchiladas in red sauce and my friend had a relleno plate. The rice was... More

I moved to TorC a few months ago and Carmen's is one of my favorite spots. Good breakfast and dinner items. Very friendly staff.

We stopped at Carmen's for the first time because our usual favorite restaurant in T or C was closed. I'm happy to say that we now have a new favorite! Carmen's is small, quaint and clean. The service is excellent and so is the food. Relleno burrito was a real treat, stuffed with a lightly breaded chile relleno and beans.... More
