Decent southwestern cooking way up north. A little pricey for the type of food, but overall it was good.

Had the prime rib. It was over-cooked. Asked for no rice but got it anyway. With the brew pub closed on Wednesdays, it was the only place open.

This place continues to thrive because the food is pretty good for a Mexican joint smack dab in the middle of the Northwoods. Service is usually good. Ask to sit in the back section, it's quieter there. They usually seat the families with kids in the front booths. The food is pretty good. Standard Tex-Mex fare. I like the chile rellenos or the fish tacos. I get extra rice instead of their beans, which are whole beans, not refried. Also, I think their seafood burrito is not very good and would not recommend it.

I know my Mexican and Carmlitas is no more than fair in my book but the atmosphere is relaxed and interesting and the local beer, and margaritas are excellent. We found the prices reasonable for the area and type of restaurant. I had a wonderful experience ordering a gift certificate at Christmas over the phone. Not only was the server helpful and courteous, she personally delivered the certificate to my local friend!
