No, it is not the food that I go here for. The food is just OK. But their Margaritas are the star of this show! Mind you, I have had margaritas from Mexico to Turks and Caicos and none can compare to these powerful gems. If you don't like margaritas, don't go to Carmels.

Stopped off while visiting the local shopping mall. When we first walked in, it was obvious the atmosphere had changed but not for the good. Instead of clean tables or booths, which we had to look around for one. There were windows overlooking the tables from outside, which made privacy non existence. Bathrooms were filthy, food wasn't very good, only... More

Cold rainy night we decided to visit Carmels. Used to be a summer patio hangout but hadn't been there since it had passed from mother to son. First the good-location is close to whitmer high school which has very good sports teams so I can see this as a pre or post game watering hole. In the summer the patio... More

Hadn't been here in years but decided to go on a whim. When we walked in, we almost thought they changed what kind of restaurant it was.......No identifying decor.........no music.........Probably won't be back and certainly won't recommend it.

While the atmosphere was fun and lively, the food, to put it bluntly, sucked. I am from California, so my standards might be a little high, but I had nothing good to say about the food. The service was pretty decent and I hear the margaritas were good, but don't go for the food.

The margaritas are great, the atmosphere is fun. During the summer the patio is open and get there early for a seat. Daily specials are worth it. Margarita specials are daily.

Had lunch with an old friend I hadn't seen for years. The food and service were very good. One of the best Margaritas I've ever had.

Weekdays, Carmel's is a sleepy neighborhood bar with average Mexican food. Clean and organized, the interior has comfortable seats, knotty pine walls and Formica tables. In season, the outdoor patio s much more popular option. On Friday and Saturday night it's packed with party people. Most of them in their 20's and 30's but others too. Food is average. Service...

Not the same place it used to be. I lived and grew up in the area. 3 sisters each owned a restaurant in Toledo- Loma Lindas , Ventura's, and Carmel's. My family and I had dinner at Carmel's last night and I was disappointed. The tortilla chips have gone grocery store...cheap...the salsa changed and the nachos very disappointed as they... More
