During the last three years, my wife and I have dined (25 x's for dinner, 4 x's for lunch) @ Mi Carreta - Blowing Rock, N.C.

When we travel to Blowing Rock it is usually to have dinner at this restaurant. Food preparation and presentation is very good. Taste is excellent. Portions are large, often enough for two. Children are welcome. The menu is extensive but you can also create your own combinations. Prices are exceptionally reasonable. Drinks are huge and often are on special. Try... More

I enjoyed lunch here with coworkers and I will return again. The food was very good. Prices are reasonable, service was quick and friendly, and the environment is cozy. The only negative I experienced was the table arrangement coupled with the size of the chairs makes it crowded at the table. Otherwise, a great place to eat.

Anthony was the waiter, and he brought us a sweet creamy dip and a big bowl of salsa with our homemade chip. Ordered a bowl of guacamole – he wheeled over his... More

Food was delicious and we had a large party, but they seriously need more staff. It was painful how slow they were to refill chips and drinks. Guacamole was awesome though!

There is a reason for the empty parking lot and it isn't the road construction....this place is horrible. I have no idea how they stay in business. The food and service were so lacking that I will NEVER return.

We love stopping in here for some chips, salsa, good tacos and a margarita. It can get busy and the hostess area isn't very efficient at times but if you get here when it isn't busy, it is a great place to have a quick bite to eat. I love the specialty chicken tacos with the soft corn tortillas.
