First a tip - order a plate to share with a friend or date. The servings are huge! Our family had a wonderful meal at Carmen's. Our server was very helpful and pointed us in the right direction for both the cheese dip and our entrees. The vegetables on my vegetarian plate were gorgeous- fresh and perfectly grilled. Highly recommended.

I have gone here with my wife or with groups up to 12 people. The service is always good and the food is excellent.

Went with my family. Food was very good but they nickel and dime you. They advertise 2 for 1 margaritas but they don't give you two for one unless the same person drinks both. My hubby and I both just wanted one but they charged us $5.99 x 2. Also son wanted a little extra sour cream for fajitas and... More

We visited this restaurant last night and Maria waited on a group of 9 and she did a great job. The fish taco's had a good size piece of fish and lots of toppings. We had a good visit there and would recommend it.

We love Carmen's Happy Hour (buy one, get one free regular margaritas). I love their shrimp cocktail. It is so good and fresh, with big hunks of avocado, onions, and cilantro. The tomato sauce is really good, not like ketchup like Camino Real (yuck!). The shrimp are huge! It is expensive, but even a small is a big portion. They'll... More

a notch above the other Mexican restaurants in town. They have some menu items you don't typically find in Murfreesboro - lengua tacos, and menudo on the weekends. They've declined a bit since first opening five years ago or so. Chips aren't as good, and they don't bring out the three kinds of salsa unless you ask. Margaritas are good,... More

I rarely eat in because this place is never slow but it's due to their great food and friendly service. I am tempted to try something new every time a server walks by. Usually I get the fried fish tacos on flour tortillas. They're the best I've found anywhere.

We love Carmen's - it's easily our favorite Mexican restaurant in middle TN. First off the prices are very reasonable for the portion sizes. Their menu is huge, so don't expect just the basic chain menu. Great happy hour prices and their chips and salsa are always fresh and delicious. Their Sopes are incredible! Other favorites are Hurache, Sincronizada, Cactus,... More

Looking for good Mexican food on a Saturday night while out of town and found Paqueria Mexican Restaurant. The food was great, large portions and very tasty. The chips and salsa was also really good. The only drawback was that we were seated near the band (western music) ... the band was not bad, just didn't want to sit that... More
