I was very happy when a new restaurant came to town. I actually heard about it from Latin Families that said it was good. My family eats here or takes out more often than I would like to admit.

Have eaten here many times and never been disappointed. The food and the service are both excellent. Also has a good salsa bar and free chips to enhance your meals.

Great place for tasty Mexican food and on a nice day you can sit on the patio. Faves are shrimp tacos and grande steak quesadilla. Not to be missed and better than most of the Mexican restaurants in town.

I've been to Taqueria Carnival many times and it never disappoints. Great place to stop after a long day of motorcycle Adventure riding. There is an outdoor seating area where you can relax and drink a cocktail and enjoy a bite to eat. I had...More

This is where we go for Mexican food now. It's not wonderful, meaning it's not fancy and it's basic. But the food is good. It's always hot. It's very reasonable priced. It's local. Locals eat here. Lots of local Hispanic people eat here. Good, basic...More
