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

Had lunch and celebrated a 21st birthday. The servers were helpful and service was fast. Had delicious margaritas and tableside guacamole prepared. The food was plentiful for a lunch menu and we had a nice leisurely lunch without feeling rushed.

We visited Mi Carreta this past weekend & it was great! The food & portions are really good. The prices were a bit high, but being located at a tourist destination that's to be expected. The salsa was sweeter than we are used to & they also had another dip they brought out with the salsa & chips. It was... More

Had dinner here on an overnight stay in the area. My husband had the carnitas and the meat was tender, but he felt the sauce was a little too "tomato-y". I had the chicken and beef taquitos which i though were pretty good. We also had rice and refried beans which were average. It was not the best mexican i... More

If you are in the High Country and you are achin' for some Mexigrub, then don't go to Boone, head out to Mi Carreta in Blowing Rock. The quality of the food has always been top notch for me, from the variety of salsa's to the table made Quac. One of my favorite side dishes to order is the Salsa... More

Stopped for a quick dinner after a long day of travel. Pleasantly surprised at the quality of food and service. The staff was busy but very welcoming. We would eat here again.

Better than any Mexican place I've been to. We came for lunch and the portions were huge. Our nieces absolutely loved the cheese sauce too. For four of us our bill came out to $54.95 before tip. We will definitely return on future visits and highly recommend.

Ate here on Sunday nite after arriving in blowing rock. It was your normal Mexican restaurant with authentic Mexican food. The salsa and chips were good (salsa was on the mild side). The food was very good. Not very crowded when we were there. Prices were normal for mex restaurant. I would go back again.
