Not fancy but good and good value

This casual place was recommended by friends. My wife is Mexican-American and we love meeting our friends here for lunch. This is an order at the counter, but there are tables. The food is hearty and good value. We will return.

Loved the carne asada tacos plus the chorizo and potato burritos are very home style and excellent. Chips are good but would be better if warmed and salsa is great, but a little hot but enjoyable.

I enjoy good Mexican food and it is at Carolina's. Don't come here to impress a date or the in-laws. Don't come for ambiance. But if you want good food for a good price, this is it. Two chicken enchiladas, beans and rice for $6.50? Sure I'll take that and come back again tomorrow.

The food is good, but the tortillas are awesome!!! They make their own tortillas and they are paper thin. They are huge... and they are great. I always buy a few dozen to take home back to Colorado. They freeze well... The food is homemade goodness and I would recommend.....

Best Mexican in the Phoenix area! Been here several times and the food is delicious. Carolina's has there flavors down to a science. Best to try is the fully loaded chimichanga... Chicken is moist and the outside is crisp... Tamales are also a good pick or really anything is a good pick... Advice to come early for a meal because... More

I visited Carolinas in Peoria on a Saturday to get some chorizo and tortillas to go. was told it had the best food for the price. The first thing I noticed was leaking trash bags on the ground within 2 feet of the entrance. I told the server and she said oh that is not supposed to be there. When... More

Happy we came here. The tamales were faaaantaastic! We also had the fresh (hot!) flour tortillas and guacamole which were delicious. Will definitely be coming back when we are in town.

The next time you get a hankering for fast food Mexican drive right past the Taco Bell and come to Carolina's. You step up to the counter and order any item. Your first bite will convince you you came to the right fast food place. If you order any item that includes a tortilla you will be a happy camper.... More

The food was reasonably priced and very good tasting. However even for those dining-in, the food was all served in styrofoam containers with plastic utensils. I would have preferred a regular plate and real silverware for my meal (which was delicious).
