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

I went to Carmelita's in the mood for chicken mole. Perhaps because I am spoiled by my mother-in-law, who prepares it from scratch for me once in a great while, it did not meet my expectations. It was good, it just did not have a lot of flavor, especially that spicy chocolate flavor I was craving. Our waitress was very... More

Today, August 19, 2016, my sister and I ate lunch at Carmelita's, arriving about 1:15pm. We've eaten at this restaurant previously, just not for several years. We were immediately greeted and seated in a booth. Our server took our drink order and returned with the drinks and complimentary chips and salsa (medium). The salsa was exceptionally good, very flavorful, with... More

The chips and salsa was delicious. I like that they have regular salsa and they have hot and a really hot. We searched all over the Tampa area looking for a "Puffy Taco" which is a deep fried flour taco shell. They have it on their menu and they call it a "Crispy Taco". The flour tortillas are home made... More

We chose this restaurant for Saturday lunch based on reviews from various sites. It was HORRIBLE! As soon as we were seated we noticed the sticky, old food, stains and gunk on the walls and table near and around us. The server conplained publicly to our section about how she got stuck serving the tables she had. Our food sat... More
