We are Jeremy & Karla 


We founded Carmelita Catering Co to bringing our family's’ best recipes to the forefront of the Northwest Arkansas Mexican food movement.  We moved to Arkansas in 2019 from sunny southern California where we had a gourmet food truck. Jeremy founded Devil Dogs BBQ after he retired from the Marines. Since then we have been blessed to be able to cater to large corporate companies like the Marines in Camp Pendleton, to Via SAT just to name a couple.


Our Love Story!

Jeremy and I met in Oceanside, California, shortly before he retired. We got married shortly after, we knew right away we had found someone special in each other. One day we decided to move to Arkansas to enjoy the outdoors and the slower pace of life, so we packed up our 3 fur babies and sold our Gourmet food truck business and we moved. We have made wonderful friends along the way that share a passion of food the way we do.  Now we have been blessed to be able to count on them not only as friends but as team members.

"Karla and her husband catered my wedding back in August. They took time to meet with us on 3 different occasions so that we were all on the same page. My husband and I think about the meal at our wedding all the time, and wish we could go back. The tacos were incredible. When I asked Karla about a queso fountain, she embraced the idea and it really pushed the whole wedding to the next level! Highly recommend these sweet people for any event!
