Great place for tasty Mexican food and on a nice day you can sit on the patio. Faves are shrimp tacos and grande steak quesadilla. Not to be missed and better than most of the Mexican restaurants in town.

Northern California isn't known for great Mexican food, but Taqueria Carnival challenges that notion. Authentic and delicious, this super clean establishment serves food to delight any Californian and Mexican. And they even serve horchata. Olé!
