On a 26-day road trip, we dined in a lot of restaurants. We remember this as one of our favorites! The food was excellently prepared and the staff very friendly. When we asked which was less-hot, red or green, we were served a little bowl of each so we could decide. The salsa served with chips when we sat down... More

This is one of those places you just have to visit because it looks so cool from the street. I always appreciate it when restaurants and cafes spend time on their places and signs as it seems, to me, to indicate their pride in the place. If they have pride in the exterior, they probably also have pride in their... More

Had ground meat tacos. Meat was not very tasty. Did not care for beans that came with it, either. People were very nice but I would not go back.

Service is friendly, food is basic but very good - pork chops are huge by rest. standards. Inexpensive and no real competition in TorC

Best Mexican we have had on this trip. The tamales plate and relleno plate were both excellent. Very small, homey place with two friendly Women operating it.

We had tried the Mexican Restaurant next to Carmens and were so disappointed (greasy, dirty) but we had gone because the next door restaurant was bigger. We then went to Carmens and the food was excellent, inexpensive, clean and the staff was so friendly. We always get the breakfast or regular burritos. They are $4 and huge and so delicious,... More

Stopped for takeout and found them friendly and fast. The food was bland and my enchilada plate should have come with a spoon. Soupy rice and beans and the enchilada was awash in sauce. Nachos with canned cheese sauce.

I really wanted to like the food here. Our waitress was so cute and friendly. The place is small and appears clean. But the corn chips tasted rancid, the green sauce was some processed nasty tasting stuff from a can, same for the red sauce. We weren't able to identify what type of meat was used in our order. It...
