Carmelita’s Mexican Grill & Cantina

575 Palm Canyon Drive
Borrego Springs, CA  92004

If you plan to have more than one Margarita, order the Grande, otherwise the regular one is small and both the regular and then the Grande is too much, we did it but we would recommend just starting with the Grande.

The Chips & Salsa were great to snack on while we enjoyed our drinks, the chips were light and tasty, not greasy at all and the salsa had a nice bite to it which of course was good to have a Margarita to cool our taste buds. 

The décor is so creative and gives you a sense of authenticity of how the food was going to taste.  The blankets as table cloths is just a delight, the colors are vibrant and makes the entire place feel warm and welcoming.

When we eat out, we try to taste as many items as possible and this time was no exception, so we both opted for the Combination Plates.  The great thing about their Combinations are you choose from many items and create your own.  Most combos are pre-picked for you so this way made it enjoyable.

Jerry’s Combination included 2 Beef Enchiladas and 1 Shredded Beef Burrito…the Enchiladas were good but the Burrito was the best, the meat was so succulent and juicy and the perfect seasonings made you just want more.

My Combination included a Chicken Enchilada, a Beef Tamale and a Chile Relleno.  The Enchilada and the Tamale were good, they each had an authentic taste to them but the Chile Relleno was the best we had tasted in such a long time.  The Chile had a little heat but not the type that burned, instead it was a simmering heat that added great taste to the dish.

The rice, beans and sauces on both plates were a great addition to the entire meal and filled all voids in our tummies.  Nobody should go away hungry, I gave a portion of mine to Jerry but he would have been full without my contribution to him.

Authentic Mexican food is what you will find here and it is scrumptious and if you ever find yourself in this little town, make it a point to stop in for the food, ambiance and the service is stupendous.
