Carmelita's is always a pleasant place to eat. They provide a reasonably priced Mexican lunch or dinner. Our favorite is the shrimp fajita. The flan for desert is delicious.

Unpretentious, friendly service, great tasting food and superb value for money. We enjoyed it MUCH more than a meal costing 6 times as much at the Casa Del Zorro

5 miles from La Casa Del Zorro, Carmelitas provided a very good dining option for us. The food was very good at reasonable prices. And hand-made margaritas, not from mix. If you are in Borrego Springs you have to give this place a try.

Nothing to dislike here. Our group of 16 ate here on our second night in Borrego Springs and had a great time. Even those few who said they didn't like Mexican food were more than happy with the excellent burgers. Our server was friendly and cheerful and never seemed overwhelmed by all of our orders and our request for separate checks. A good choice for Mexican food!
