After many disappointing experiences with Mexican food in the area, this was a nice surprise. While not the same as I get in the southwest, it is good and consistent. Pleasant staff. For me is a regular weekly event.

Tried Mi Carreta upon arriving in Blowing Rock, since the downtown spots were going to be crowded. Had a nice meal on the outdoor Patio, with ala carte selections and a beer special. Food was very good and generous portions, draft beer was cold in iced mugs, and service was satisfactory.

This is a very nice addition to our area. We have other Mexican restaurants but this one feels more authentic than the others. Very pleased with the prices and food.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Mi Carreta. The restaurant has a very attractive interior design. The only criticism I have of the interior is that the unusually large post under the tables makes seating somewhat awkward. We thought our dinners were better than any Mexican food we can get in our area and the pricing was excellent. My Mexican... More

We used to eat here once a week. The food has been going downhill the past year. Extensive menu and fast and friendly service, but food not up to par. No need to eat mexican food in the mountains. Too many other great options.

After a long day of hiking Mi Carreta was just what I was looking for. It is very flavorful TexMex and the servings were large. The Salsa had a great flavor as all the food did. Each table is a large solid wood table surrounded by large high backed wood chairs padded with leather. You can comfortably seat six around... More

My wife and I had dinner at Mi Carretaon Sunday, May 18, 2014. The food and service were very good. I had fajitas and my wife had a burrito. They have a nice parking lot. There is a good choice of typical Mexican fare on the menu and the price was very reasonable. I would recommend it to anyone who... More

Great food, awesome made at the table fresh Guaq. I would eat there again when in town. The only down fall is the Margarita, not even in my top 100 places to get a margarita. Left a bad after taste, tasted unlike any real margarita I have had. Almost taste like a Mango Margarita but was assured it was not.... More

Wow! It was a cold windy night and we wanted to stay close to our motel, The Village Inn. We decided on Mexican food and it was very close by. Upon entering the restaurant, we knew we made the right decision. The chips and salsa were excellent! And our food was so good....supreme burrito and chicken fajitas. And it was... More
