I love Mexican food. That being said, in my opinion, La Carreta is the best in the area. The chili rellenos are far better than anywhere else. Their sour mix for the margaritas doesn't taste like that disgusting powdered stuff many of the other places use.

We went on Monday June 23 2014 for the first time, and we really enjoyed our experience and will be in our memory for a very long time. The frozen regular Marguerita was to die for, accompanied with chips and hot salsa as required. The food was absolutely great, the waiter went out of his way to please us -... More

Great food and service! A MUST stop if you are in this area. Lauren our server was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. The food and drinks were top shelf. One of my favorite dining experiences in recent memory.

I ordered to-go food while in the area for business. The menu selection is decent, the food is good however it is not authentic that you will find in other areas. The nachos had carrots on them which was a bit weird, but if you're looking for decent Mexican food this place is an ok choice.

Amazing chicken fajitas, fresh salsa & guacamole! Whether you sit at the bar or the restaurant, the service is always great. Food is quickly delivered after ordering. A second favorite is the grilled chicken salad with a side of guacamole. Yum! We are there just about every week.

This is a great place!!! You can get the same meal at lunch for about half the price of dinner. They have the best salsa around - and it's free with excellent chips! The drinks are super too - but a little expensive - I usually get water. The decor is stunning - all kinds of cool antique photos of... More

This place was recommended by the hotel we were at. The atmosphere is very well done and the place was quite busy. I ordered a Grande Burrito with very explicit instructions to replace the re-fried beans with rice. We had a couple of margaritas while we waited. They brought salsa chips and salsa. The chips were average, but the salsa... More
