“Not enough good Mexican restaurants in Elgin!!”

Carmina's Mexican Restaurant

Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed February 12, 2013

There were very few customers but we still had to wait to get service. The food was just okay not outstanding.
I'd go back as there are just not very many authentic sit down full service Mexican restaurants in Elgin.

We have been to Carmina's about 5 times and they are one of the best. Food is excellant, service was good and we would definitely recommend.

I live in the Elgin area and frequently stop into Carmina's for take out. The food is delicious so I can't argue about that. However everytime I call my order in or stop in to order. They always seem to get my order wrong and I've had to go back. The manager Octavio has apologized and they've always remade my food.

But I think if they paid more attention to detail and communicated with the kitchen staff then the service would be alot better.

Good food but a little pricey. Good bar with lots of drink options. Atmosphere is good and sometimes they have live music.
