The service was excellent for the 10 people we put around an extended table. The kids drinks came out quickly and the adult beverage of the day was to die for. We sampled the smaller drink and it was enough to put a glow on us for the rest of the day. Oh. the food is excellent and the selections... More

We went here 3 times in a week! Service was always great as was the food. We are gluten-free and appreciated the option of delicious home-made corn tortillas with meals. Family owned restaurant.

I ordered food to pickup on a Wednesday evening. When I got home two things with my order were incorrect--one being that I got red salsa when I asked for green/tomatillo. When I called to tell them my order was wrong the person who answered argued with me that she had given me green. I told her I was staring... More

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
