This is hands down, the best overall Mexican restaurant I've ever been to. These folks were featured on the Jonathon Gold documentary "City of Gold" - you know, the famous LA Times Food Critic?? Gold wrote an article about their Huarache and the rest is history. Food is outstanding and authentic. The CRT TV screen with Mexican Soap Operas playing in the background is just icing on the cake. If you're within an hour of this place, you owe it to your palate to make a visit. And if you like hot sauce, ask for theirs. That's a whole 'nother review!

Best Mexican restaurant in se Iowa. If it's not on the menu just ask for it. I'm not sure but I think they can make it. Chips are made in house as is the delicious salsa that accompanies it. Service is friendly as the owner is your waiter and his wife is in the kitchen. I believe his daughter also helps there.

Love this little place. Great food. Reminds me of the great mexican food in California. The owners are amazing. I have tried the other Mexican restaurants in town their good, but I prefer Carmen's!
