My wife and I got a little hungry for Mexican food. When we do we always go to Carmelita's. As usual it was very good. We have never gone there on a Tuesday but this time we did. Surprise,, Our server Carol C. told us it was taco Tuesday . Three tacos (Hard Shell) to start and then you can go crazy two more at a time. The restaurant was busy but Carol was on top of the needs of everyone in her station. Thanks for a great meal. Mike and Susan

I'm an Okie and even I was impressed with how good this food was!! Our waiter was singing and checked on us in timely manner! I didn't try guacamole, which i love, because its always been nasty in restaurants, bit now I wish I would have... But I will get to AND SOON! Thanks for making my meal enjoyable!

Try the Tres Banderas. Plenty of tasty food with all the satisfying flavors. I would go more often if it would open a restaurant in downtown St. Pete. Hint hint.
