Carmelita’s Kitchen de Mexico

This lakefront sprawler offers top-notch Cal-Mex fare from the culinary vision of owner Clemente Heredia Jr. and the kitchen of exec chef Jose Colin. Expect Prime beef in the steak tampiqueña, Kurobuta pork in the wonderful carnitas. Don’t miss costillita—baby back ribs topped with fried onions. Outstanding margaritas. Warm, spiffy service.
