Great service, great food. Had the veggie burrito... One of the best I've ever had! Husband had the carne Asada chimichanga...tasty and chock full of meat. Btw... Loved the music playing, too. (Not sure why, but had to wait about 30 minutes for our food, but it was worth the wait)

We always love lunch at Delgado's in Carpinteria. The numbered lunch specials are consistently delicious and very reasonable. The margarita's are wonderful. If you are with a group get a pitcher.

My two girlfriends and myself stopped by for an early lunch at Delgado's last Saturday morning. What a delightful place. The decor was pleasing and the service was great. Clean restroom, as well.... We had a birthday girl with us and after lunch they brought vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce. We ate inside as it was a little bit... More

If you visit on the weekend expect a wait. It usual goes by fast so be patient and it is worth it. Great Menudo and usually on the menu. Carne plates are good too.

Local restaurant with full Mexican food selection at reasonable price. Outside seating. When I arrived at 5:30 PM restaurant was very busy and almost full. Limited seating. Staff were efficient and friendly.

The service actually wasn't too bad. Unfortunately, the food was horrible. My wife and I both had the triple enchilada plate. It's supposed to be three different types of enchilada. One cheese,one chicken and one ground beef enchilada. The chicken was completely flavorless, the ground beef was disgusting, and the whole dish was drowned in so much cheese you could... More

Food was very good and a cut above the stuff that passes for Mexican food in our area. The cook was very accommodating for a member of our party who was disabled and had a special dietary request. Ambiance isn't fancy so if you are seeking a "trendy" find with big screen TVs blaring and tiny slick tables with portions... More
