After hearing rave reviews for years, I finally made my way to Carmen's Cocina for a meal. Mexican restaurants are a dime a dozen and I was doubtful that it would be as amazing as everybody said. I was wrong. This place is INCREDIBLE. The tacos are so good because the shells are different from anywhere else. The tamales are truly homemade and among the best I've had. The crowds can be huge, especially on Taco Tuesday (99⍧ tacos, $2 tamales), but it's worth the wait. Everything you've heard about this place is true.

It is hard to find Mexican breakfast so I was so glad to find this family business. I have tried every breakfast item, all good. But the owners and people are what will keep you coming back!!

It looks too small to exist from the outside but I has some casual seating and great people inside. I don't know if it's "authentic" Mexican (I'm not sure what "authentic" means), but I can tell you it's the best, freshest tacos I've ever had. This is really fine food in a casual setting. I usually do carry out. You really should give this locally owned restaurant a try!

I’ve eaten there twice in the last month after a recommendation from a friend. I had the quesadilla the first time and the three soft tacos the second time (fajita, barbacoa and shredded beef). All very good. Simple, delicious, fresh. The chips and salsa are really good too. Extra props for having normal rice that is JUST RICE. I’m so tired of Mexican restaurants putting vegetables in the rice. That’s disgusting. I just want rice. And this place does it right!

The service is very kind and attentive. Small, quaint atmosphere with some outdoor seating as well.

Definitely recommended and I’ll return without a doubt.
