We went here on the recommendation of our hotel and were disappointed with the exception of the margarita, which gave me quite a good buzz! The salsa was runny and didn't have much flavor. I got a combination plate and was really excited for the tamale, but was disappointed when it was smothered in a chile verde sauce that was... More

Cute place with an interesting history. Reasonably priced food and the margaritas were pretty good. The cheese enchiladas, black beans, and rice were just average for me. There wasn't any real flavor to the enchilada sauce so I was left a bit underwhelmed. Service was ok but it took forever to order drinks and then another forever to order food.... More

I go here a few times a year when I'm in town because my in-laws like it. I'm from bakersfield, so I'm spoiled by good Mexican food and I'm also familiar with all the different regional variations (the major ones, ok). I think their food is average or just below average for California Mexican restaurants. This isn't an insult, we... More

We came across this restaurant while driving around and once we tried it, we knew we would be back. The food is delicious and the service is great. This is now a favorite that we return to every time we visit Carpinteria.

I have been going to Delgado's since the 70's. Today, looking forward to an authentic Mexican food lunch experience, it was beyond the beyond. Beginning with the salsa - thin to the point where your chip drips on the table - super uncomfortable for me, the chile relleno was about 1/4 of the chile, the chips were half cooked and... More

We got there fairly early before 5pm and landed a spacious table with a beautiful view of the mountains. I ordered a glass of wine, my friend had the Margarita, and we had tasty... More

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
