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).

Very fresh, very tasty. Highly recommend it. Shredded Beef tacos, chicken quesadillas are great. The wait is a bit long during dinner, but definitely worth it.

Don't get me wrong, this place is pretty decent however, it takes way too long for just 2 bean and cheese burritos to be ready. I swear I waited 20 minutes and had people that came in after me leave earlier. I really wish they had a drive-thru and better salsa.

If you are looking for Good Mexican Food, then this is the Real Deal. You do have to order and pick up your food at the counter--so it's not fine dining. You cannot beat the prices here. Again, if want good food--this is the place. I used to think this was just a generic tortilla place, but wow, I'm glad... More

This is a must have if you are in the area. Everything is made fresh when you order - even the tortilla. Absolutely the best breakfast burrito I have ever had.

I have visited both the original Carolina's and the Peoria location and prefer the Peoria location for the cleanliness. This is more of a carry out than an eat in restaurant and I would recommend calling ahead. The menu is small and has the basics, tacos, enchiladas, burrittos, green and red chile rice and beans. I don't usually order the... More
