Northern California isn't known for great Mexican food, but Taqueria Carnival challenges that notion. Authentic and delicious, this super clean establishment serves food to delight any Californian and Mexican. And they even serve horchata. Olé!

Husband and I had the yummy taco salads. Very generous portions of carnitas! Saw other meals go past and they were equally generous portions.

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 the Carne Asada super burrito it was excellent. This is a go to spot for me.

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 Mexican food. And a huge menu, so you will very likely find what you want. And you can have your pup on the patio too which is really cool on a warm evening.

El Carnival is part of the best Mexican food restaurants in Northern California. The Al Pastor anything is so flavorful and the Seafood Soup is amazing. We moved from Nor Cal about 10 years and this is this is the place I miss the most for great Mexican food. Not in Placerville...hit up La Fiesta Taqueria in Folsom or Mid-town Sac. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!
