Great Mexican food at reasonable prices. Steak and eggs, ceviche, and salads are our favorite foods. I like the friendly atmosohere and the outdoor dining when weather is good

Love this place. The outside seating area is fabulous. We bring our Westie, he loves it. The staff is so attentive. They will bring out a water bowl for our dog. We never sit inside. The margaritas are great, they have $18 pitchers on Sunday & Monday. Food is very good. Sergio, the owner is a very gracious host.

The bartenders are very friendly and the food came out so quick! Food was above average and pretty cheap but the atmosphere and service will have me back for sure. Had guacamole and tacos and couldn't have been happier.

La Carreta on Bluebonnet is a great place to satisfy that periodic urge for Mexican food. Located just off Highland, the restaurant has plenty of parking and an outside patio for munching when the weather is cooperating. Inside, the décor is typical Mexican with tables and booths attended by highly motivated waiters who keep an eagle eye on your every... More

Since we live not too far away from the restaurant and frequently visit the grocery store nearby, we tried La Carreta at lunch time and enjoyed it. The food was fine and the service was excellent. We were impressed with the amount of food offered for the price. Based on a positive first reaction we have gone back and a... More

This is the best Mexican resturant around! You can actually taste the alcohol in the maragrita!! I love all the food, but the guacamole and the tacos el pastor are my favorite. The guacamole is made with real avacados!

Margaritas...horrific! The top shelf has Sauza tequila..umm..what...That should be at least house! Patron should be considered Top shelf. The meat has NO SEASONING, no salt or pepper at all! AWFUL! Los Gallos on Bluebonnet was our fav but they closed down unfortunately, so the next best would be Serranos. Dont waste your money on this place...YUCK!
