Carmona's is a local family-run restaurant that has the feeling of being in Cheers. We are multiple repeat customers, as are a lot of their customers. Their hamburgers are to die for, the pastrami sandwich has excellent pastrami and their ribs are fall-off-the bone delicious. They always have sports on TV (Giants, A's, Raiders, Niners, you name it) and a great selection of cold beers! Carmona's is a bit hidden, but worth if you venture down East Lake toward Holohan Rd.

We have eaten here many times. Mainly for lunch, but we have enjoyed many different dishes. MY favs are the tri-tip sandwich and the breaded shrimp with fries. Very delicious. The TRI-tip is so tender and flavorful and the shrimp Is very lightly breaded. There's plenty of TV screens and beer options if watching sports and having a cold beer is your pleasure. Great spot to unwind and enjoy great food. The owners and staff are always friendly. Offering a smile and great service every time!

In Watsonville for one night, did not want Mexican (Watsonville has some excellent Mexican resteraunts) and noticed a BBQ takeout.
Ordered the 1/4 rack of ribs, which came with beans, potatoe salad, and garlic bread.

The ribs were pleantiful, if a little fatty, but the, what do you expect of BBQ ribs? They were well prepared and flavorful

The meal was $14,

This little hole in the wall was a pleasant surprise for lunch. The food was very good and the staff was friendly. My uncle had a grilled steak sandwich with onions and peppers which he said was very good. I had a Chicken Sandwich which was equally good. The beer was good and a good value. I would highly suggest this restaurant if you are in town.
