It had been three years since I ate here. My sister and I needed our Mexican food fix and La Carreta met our needs!

Pretty good Mexican food in the community of Alpine, CA. Great stop off on a road trip. Probably is not eh best Mexican food you will ever eat, but it was good and my kids enjoyed it very much. Would stop off again and enjoy.

The best cheese enchiladas and chile rellenos that I have ever had. Their chips and salsa are good too. The service is hit-and-miss, but their food is fab!
