La Carreta by the tracks

This restaurant is a good and dependable standard. Always good to arrive prior to or just after lunch on weekends, otherwise can crowded. Great nighttime location to dine with friends.

I went with co-workers for an early dinner. We were seated quickly and received our chips and drinks. Large menu selection. I saw someone's pina colada and ordered one. It was large and good. My order for enchilada dinner was not fixed as ordered. Two chicken enchiladas instead of 1 chicken & 1 beef. Extra charge to get chees sauce.... More

I have been eating here for years when I was in college and every time I return. It's usually really great service and food but service was horrible this day. First it took forever to get are orders and then for food to come out. Then they gave one person the wrong order and took so long to get it... More

Inconsistency is in my opinion due to whether the "boss" is in and who is rotating as cook. Language can be a serious problems at times with certain servers. The Verdes sauce is usually above reproach while reds are from spaghetti sauce to spicey take-it-home sauce. Menu has gotten better while simple tex-mex meal prices have risen to make homemade...

The best thing about this restaurant is the atmosphere. Love the outdoor seating (however, it is a smoking area - so if you are a non smoke, like me, be aware there will be smoke). The place is very nicely decorated in kind of an upscale-ish Mexican decor. I split the chicken tacos with refried beans and rice. Chips and... More

I remember eating here a few years ago and was just blown away at the wonderful food. When I knew we were coming back to eat tonight I was so excited and couldn't wait! Man, I was disappointed. Nothing even came close to tasting good at all. At first I thought it was just me and maybe my tastes had... More

This is a great place for reasonably priced Mexican food. If you go on a Saturday night, they have outdoor live music playing from 6:30-9:30...but come early because getting an outdoor table when the weather is nice is hard to do. Food is good, comes fairly quickly and has nice size portions. Beer is very cold, frozen mixed drinks are... More
