Tres Carnales is popular with good reason. My kids love it, and we always try to visit when school is out. If you're dining there with kids, they will be made to feel welcome. I'd recommend going early to avoid a wait for tables (waiting is hard enough for adults!). Thanks, Tres Carnales for the consistently great food and fun... More

Delicious food, super authentic and gooooooood. It can just get so busy (because it is delicious) that the service can be hit or miss. The service is always kind though, even when it's to busy to be perfect. Fun environment. Great place for dinner on the weekend.

We have loved this place since they opened. The food is ALWAYS fantastic and it's such a fun, casual experience. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly and happy to make recommendations. The pescado tacos are a fave, and their specials are fantastic. We can't go without getting a pitcher of sangria, which brings the price up a bit, but the... More

Our daughter from LA bought me and my husband a gift card from here, based on Yelp reviews. It was fantastic! It is a very busy place and very well organized. Do not be deterred by a line up. Tables typically turn over quickly. You order your food at the counter. I had chicken tacos and they were amazing. Salsa... More

The food is the best Mexican in Edmonton. The horchata is that memory you have from your last trip to Mexico. It can be tricky to find a space to sit depending on what time it is. But if you can be patient, it is simply awesome.

Tres Carnales is right downtown and is always packed on a weekday lunchtimes. Thankfully this service is very speedy and their menu is small enough to water quickly but there is enough to have something for everyone. The mushroom tacos are amazing - try them even if you're not a vegetarian. The soups are often excellent too . I would... More

Tres carnelas is probably one of the closest mexican restaurants you will get to mexican food. Their tacos are made with real torillas. The flavours are amazing. My fave is their potatos and pork tacos but ive had nearly their entire menu. The atmosphere is awesome but very busy so there is noy always a table. Its a fast turn... More
