The ladies that work here are quick, friendly, and efficient. They smile and refill your coffee without asking. I can tell they love what they do.

We celebrated our 30th Anniversary at Hotel Emma which is a lovely place, but the nearby restaurants don't have breakfast tacos on weekdays. Carmelita's was just a short drive and so delish. Everything tasted homemade, even the corn tortillas. The portions were plentiful - we...More

I've eaten here for lunch a couple of times over the last year. It's a pretty typical local family-run Mexican restaurant for San Antonio (if there is a typical thing for this). I'd say the food here is solid but not spectacular. Grading on the...More

While I don't each much Mexican food I needed a quick lunch and was informed by a helpful Enterprise agent to check out Carmelita's . I browsed the local eateries and determined that the Shuck Shack (seafood) and the Smoke Shack (BBQ) were going to...More
