We ate here on a whim. It is also advertised as "Las Carmelitas". I had a chimmichanga, my wife had garlic shrimp. Both the meals and service were average at best., and a little expensive for what you got. However, when presented with the bill...More

Stay away from this terrible place. They tried to cheat us on the exchange rate. We went here because first drink was free; not worth it; margarita tasted like water w/ sugar & blended ice. A guy came after we ordered our food, pretending to...More

Only stopped here tonight as I had injured my shoulder and did not physically feel up to exploring further options. BIG mistake. Food is ok but VERY overpriced. Some of the waiters are super pushy and off-putting but for us there were two gems/highlights: 1)...More

We had a lunch here. My wife’s mixed platter (taco, enchilada) was good, but my spicy flank steak was dry (even though I had asked for medium rare) and just plain not worth eating. The beers were cheap and the staff tried hard, but for...More

We were just strolling down 5th and the "seller" talked us in to eating there (the menu had lots of choices and seemed to be a good match for what we were looking for). My sweet sangria was good. Kids split the pasta alfredo--nothing special,...More
