A "just right" little place

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... read 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

We love this restaurant. We visited four times during our two weeks in T or C. Friendly service. Fabulous food. We loved the relleno burrito, and the pulled pork burrito. We were impressed with their lovely homemade salsa, and very attentive waitresses. We will dream of these burritos for a long time. The burritos are $4.50 each, and generous. If... More

When you're hungry, even the bad food will taste average - this was not one of those times!! I had passed this place several times when I go and do work in T or C, and always seems packed, but now I know it's just because it is so small in there. There's like 5 tables in there -_- The... More

I was on my way to get an oil change, and I needed some breakfast. The breakfast burrito I got to go at Carmen's Kitchen was everything I needed it to be: inexpensive ($4 + tax), vegetarian (potato, egg, and cheese), fast (I was in and out in under ten minutes), and tasty. The burrito was fat, too! I'm a... More

This small place has great service, and very good food. The prices are fair and the desserts are homemade

We both really enjoyed our dinner here. The blue corn ground beef stacked enchilada with green sauce was spicy and incredible, especially with the egg atop! Only bummer was no alcohol served. Service was great and food was quick! Kudos to the cook!

Called in here on the strength of the Trip Advisor reviews and wished we hadn't. Staff were warm and welcoming and that's where the positives ended. It's a cafe on the roadside, not especially luxurious but does the job. Wife had beef fajitas with tortillas. Plate wasn't sizzling, meaning that the food was warm. The beef tough and the overall...
