I used to work for an electronics plant in Roseville and the gang all went here to Carmelita's regularly until we read they got shut down for using cat, yes CAT in the recipe. The gay guy I worked with on the line at the time ran to the bathroom when we read him the article in the local newspaper. I've never gone back. Cat....really. yah really. enjoy

Carmelita's USED to be good before their renovation a number of years ago but the quality of the food has declined remarkably since. Wait staff is not as friendly, food is not as good, and the outstanding margaritas (by pitcher or glass) are no longer to be had. Too bad. This used to be my favorite Mexican restaurant for years -- now I go to the little taqueria's in the area. Better food and better prices.

This is the place to go for the true Mexican food lover. They also remodeled the place. This place is outstanding, and it has a full bar, and this place can party too.

As with any business, Carmelitas's should ensure that only their most customer oriented, best spoken, and pleasant staff are assigned to answer phones, interact with their customers and ensure that they provide consistant responses to issues like ""reservations"". \r\n\r\nI attempted to make reservations 1 week before the event only after reading that they accept reservations and I was bounced around from one non-english speaking person to another being told that they in fact don't take reservations. \r\n\r\nThen I wanted to clarify what their least busiest times were and I might as well been speaking a foreign (non-spanish) language and I was subjected to being passed from one non-english speaker to another. I appreciate the Spanish culture and the flavor it brings to our culture, but if you want to do business and live in the U.S. maybe you should learn to speak our language and learn a little about our culture in addition to your own.\r\n\r\nFrustrated in Fair Oaks!

Our family and friends have been coming to Carmelitas for over 20 years and it is our favorite. The staff are always friendly and helpful, no matter how busy they are. The food is always excellent (our top favorites are the chicken chimichanga and the avacado tacos for the veg-heads) and usually on your table before you can drink even half of their dangerously good margaritas! If you go to Carmelitas on a Friday or Saturday night, make sure you get a table on the patio, they usually have a Mariachi band that just makes it feel as if you've been transported to Mexico for the night! Looking for a fun and inexpensive mexican restaurant?....Carmelitas is the place!

very few restuarants offer great food and an awesome envoirment, you can come in for a quiet dinner or go all out and party. by the way this the only mexican place where ive seen the staff and customers know each other so well. youll often find people dancing on the weekends.
