Low key Mexican place loved by locals. Great place to hang out whether outside, inside tables and a great bar. Nothing super fancy, but all tasteful

We live in Carpinteria and are regulars at Delgados. It's a great place for casual dining with good margaritas and food. We like to sit outside on a sunny day.

It probably won't kill you but if you have choice I'd take it. Really disappointing. Food poorly made and only fit for a jail. The wait staff were very friendly and kind so they get a 5.

We stopped here for dinner with the kiddos after an afternoon of playing on the beach. Friendly staff and comfortable booths. The food was good, served quickly and hot. There is inside and outside patio dining. Good margarita too. We will definitely eat here again.

We arrived without reservations on a Friday night... the place was packed -- a good sign. We were seated within 10 minutes. Chips and salsa flowed continously. The salsa was very good and fresh tasting, not too spicy. Family friendly.

We visit Carpinteria every year for three weeks. Our tradition includes first night dinner at Delgados. Their food is very traditional California Mexican with wonderful enchiladas tacos and chili rellenos.

it has handicap parking and easy-access tables out in front. if you can substitute the tall bed for a good Margarita this is the place for you. better plan on weighing a few extra pounds after the meal.
