A group of friends/previous co-workers met with me at Carmelita's to wish me well since I was laid off from where we all worked. We told the waitress, Shanelle, that we were celebrating my loss of my job. She made it all positive from that point on. She knowledgeably described the menu items and clarified that we could make any adjustments and have it "our way". We all loved our meals and enjoyed our evening very much. Shanelle checked to make sure we were happy with our meals. I especially enjoyed mine because she made sure I had it according to my likes and preferences. It was perfect. I couldn't finish mine and asked for it to be boxed. I don't know for sure what happened, but when I arrived home, i had a new full chimichanga. Perhaps my leftovers got accidentally tossed, but now I had a whole new meal. On top of that, a small sundae was given to me at the end of the meal with a card signed by the kitchen staff and Shanelle wishing me the best in my new beginnings and future endeavors. I loved Carmelitas before this night, but the special care and attention for my meal AND my contendedness went above and beyond.
