I've been here a number of times. This last time was a little disappointing. The service was not great and the food was average. The queso dip was too runny. When we asked for another portion of it, it was cold. I ordered enchiladas. This is a a la carte item and dinner. I wanted the dinner; it was dinnertime.... More

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant. I recommend The 25a Combination with beef. Get the whole pinto beans (or black beans) instead of the refried beans. They're better tasting and better for you.

Great food, and Great prices for families, loves the chips and salsa. Love the Mexican pizza. The kids menu has a lot of choices too. Tues is all you can eat tacos. Monday's kids eat free. Free food on your birthday.

I had 3 ground beef enchiladas and my friend had the wet burrito, both of which were large portions and very tasty. I also had the house margarita which was nothing special.

Great atmosphere, good food and good service. Went with a group of ladies and everyone was served at the same time and the food hot.

I loved the Carnitas Burrito. Everything here is excellent. Oh the chips and salsa are to die for. I could eat here everyday. Best Mexican in town.

My wife and I tried Carmelita's a second time. The food was OK. NOTHING special. The prices were very reasonable. The service was really good but we probably will not go back.

I guess I'm spoiled as I grew up in California and the Mexican food their is the best. I had hoped for hot and spicy but it was just average. I prefer fresh hot tortilla chips and I bet these were out of a bag. The atmosphere is fine and the service was very good. I guess I will just... More

We always enjoy the food. Lots of chips & very good salsa to start. I have tried several items on the menu & always enjoyed what I ordered. My companion sticks with the chimichaunga cooked crispy & he loves it. I always order double black beans for my sides. Then, if you have room, go for the flan. If you... More
