A group of my friends joined me for my birthday at this establishment. We were given the royal treatment, including a fabulous free dessert (for me)! Another friend brought a homemade cake (later) and the waitstaff graciously offered us plates, etc. to use though she had brought some. They didn't mind that we spent several hours there; we felt no pressure to leave. Not only was the food good and reasonably priced, but the staff was very friendly and as I said, very accommodating. Thanks for making my special day a day to remember!

By the way, I made a reservation because of the abnormal size of our group but I don't believe reservations are the norm. Also, although I wouldn't categorize the view as "scenic", the indoor is clean and well decorated and the outdoor patio has a nice fountain.

Taqueria Carnival is a busy, popular place. This is bare-bones menu-on-the-wall, no frills self-service eating. The prices are reasonable and service is quick. For the uninitiated, such as myself, many of the menu options are unfamiliar which makes the ordering process confusing. When it arrives at your table, the food might come as something of a surprise.

Although outdoor seating is available, this is a noisy, hectic restaurant. It’s not a relaxing place to eat, but if you want reasonably priced authentic Mexican food in a hurry, Taqueria Carnival might be just your spot.
