Great homemade tortilla

This place makes the best homemade tortillas. The rest of their food is great and always busy during breakfast and dinner.

I only purchased tortillas so that is all I can address. I went on Saturday at 1pm and it was packed. The line moved quickly and the employees hustled which I really appreciate at any restaurant. I saw at least 12 employees in the back working and they never stopped. The plain tortillas are fabulous - the best tortilla I... More

End of story. My kids think that a dozen tortillas only comes 11 to a bag. If you don't eat one on the way home while it's still warm...then you might not have a pulse.

The guacamole was excellent! I had a machaca burrito that was very tasty and not very spicy. For you germaphobes out there (me included) the utensils are each individually wrapped in plastic. Not a fancy place by any stretch of the imagination, but I would go there again for a quick, tasty meal.

Horrible lunch at Carolina's today. The chips were stuck together with LARD. My tamale was the worst I've ever had anywhere. Reeked of LARD and super greasy. One bite confirmed that it was inedible. Disgusting! I wish there were ratings lower than Terrible, because Terrible seems too good for what we got. The building was clean though.

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.
