Been about 4 yrs since my last visit, I had hoped that since it was still in business that things had improved. Nope Little portions, big prices and every single bit of it was tasteless!!! Chips are bagged chips simply warmed, our waitress was nice and helpful. Think this place only stays in business due to the interstate and unsuspecting... More

Stopped here for lunch and the best thing eaten was the salsa. Everything else was nothing to write home about. Nothing special; will NOT be going back.

Food was average although fajitas were plentiful. The margaritas were watered down. Service was good but the place was quite dirty.

My son and I had dinner there last week. As soon as we entered we were approached by someone asking for money. I realize that businesses can't always control that but it was still annoying. But the most annoying thing was our waiter. Twice he came up behind me and stuck his arm in my face to refill my water.... More

We made it to Terrell and due to travel time had missed lunch but we're so hungry and ready to chow down. We picked Carmona's Tex-Mex and it did not disappoint. The staff was friendly and swift. The SALSA was some of the best I've had!! The portions were huge and was cooked to perfection. Our girls (in the basketball... More

Yum Yum we ate it up. They were obviously popular cause the place was packed. I would get there early as service was a little slow because there were so many patrons enjoying the cold salty margaritas before the food arrived.

The location is clean and the folks are friendly. However, I’ve had better Mexican (TexMex) food. My wife and I shared a fajita plate and it was enough food for both of us. There were only about two other parties in the restaurant while we were there but to be fair it was a Wednesday evening. I am not taking... More

We stopped by for a quick dinner on our way back home. Have been a regular of Carmona's for 15+ years. We were terribly disappointed that we waited an hour and never received our food. The waitress was very good, but not much she could do about the slow cooks. Won't plan on stopping by here for a 'quick' dinner... More
