Food is great, except for the weak salsa. Drinks and service merely OK and the biggest opportunity to improve. Still, Delgado’s is the best Mexican restaurant in town, if not counting the burritos coming out the back of the liquor store!

Food was good, not necessarily amazing, but very satisfying. Be aware plates are HOT! One member of our party didn't hear the warning and got burned fingers.

We had a large group (10) and sat outside on the patio for lunch. Service was quick and friendly. Food was tasty and at a good price. Everyone enjoyed their meal, even my nephew who ate a hamburger (because he doesn't like Mexican food!?!)

Although this restaurant is often busy, it isn't clear what the draw is. The food is blah, and the restaurant looks dirty. Not worth the visit.

Low key Mexican place loved by locals. Great place to hang out whether outside, inside tables and a great bar. Nothing super fancy, but all tasteful

We live in Carpinteria and are regulars at Delgados. It's a great place for casual dining with good margaritas and food. We like to sit outside on a sunny day.

it has handicap parking and easy-access tables out in front. if you can substitute the tall bed for a good Margarita this is the place for you. better plan on weighing a few extra pounds after the meal.
