My family has enjoyed Carmen's for years...as long as we take out or eat in their little take-out patio area! Service inside is very slow and not particularly attentive. Food is good, and prices are, of course, better as take-out than they are inside. Special...More

Carmens is a great small family owned restaurant. I have lots to say about this, have grown up going here and in fact as a child had a love hate relationship because there was never any other choice. We had to go, EVERY Friday. Once...More
