GREAT Food but average service

The food was fantastic, but the waitress very slow. No extra sour cream, no refills and no extra sauce

This place is OK, but I dislike the "mole" slight chocolate flavoring in the sauces. It was our go-to Mexican restaurant when we first moved from CA, and the burritos, tacos, enchiladas, etc. are more than adequate but border food it is not. Better than many other attempts at Mexican in the Northeast!

Love the margaritas, fajitas... it's all good. The staff wants to make sure you have a great experience. If you're looking for authentic, non-chain restaurant Mexican, give it a try!

We were here for lunch on a Sunday and the restaurant was not crowded but we requested a QUIET table upon being greeted at the door, we were led to a table at the dining room entrance adjacent to a table with several noisy children. We requested a different table and we were accommodated but a few minutes later a... More

this is the place. Huge menu, all the food is great. Excellent service as well. It's on my short list of standby restaurants when I just want to get out of the kitchen. It can get crowded, but they move people through pretty quickly so the waits are not too long.

We tried La Carretas at the suggestion of friends - who just love the place. (In truth we have several friends who really like it). I don't get it. In my opinion this is a case of much ado about nothing! I found the salsa bland... the sauce poured over my dish to be largely tasteless... and my burrito stuffed... More

Ate and had a drink at the bar one night a few weeks ago. I couldn't quite figure out the bartender and why he was in such a frenzy. The bar was busy, but not out of control busy. The bartender was running around like he was losing his mind it and made the evening less than enjoyable! Food was... More
