Went on Cinco De Mayo. They had a huge mariachi band. Drinks were very good, service was good. management does a very good job. Food was excellent. We stayed in the area a week, and tried 3 Mexican places in the area. Carmela's was the best by a wide margin. We WILL be back each trip to sample more of their excellent choices!

After reading the previous reviews my husband and I decided to have lunch here. All proved right..the restaurant was pleasant. Lunch special and a beer per person 20.00 not bad. Food good..chips and salsa mild and hot. Customer was #1...service with a smile!
