Enjoy coming here for many reasons: 1) Authentic Mexican restaurant and bar are excellent. Also open later than many other restaurants in the area. 2) Food is fantastic. Large portions. Service is consistantly great! 3) Very busy - lots of people love it here. 4) Mariachi band roams from table to table playing Mexican songs or the song of your... More

Great Patron Margarita w/ shot of Grand Marnier. I mean really good server. Parking lot full. I thought I may have stumbled upon gold but it was not to be. Funny thing was I got to taste two burritos during my only visit. The roving guitars made it impossible to communicate so the Chile Verde burrito I thought I ordered... More

really good food, great prices and real quick. Only problem you do come out smelling thick of food and oil. Just because it just is thick in there. I know it sounds weird unless you have eaten there. Oh and can never get enough salsa and chips great salsa

Both meals were terrible. My wife loves Mexican food and her Chili Relleno was tasteless I ordered a beef fajita and it was equally unpalatable. The meat was tough and the rest was mostly onions. Green peppers were few and far between..

This restaurant has be open for many years, and it shows.The wait staff was pleasant enough and service was average. The surroundings were something out of some misguided Gringo's idea of a Mexican restaurant should be. Clean but gaudy. When I arrived in Portland 25 years ago, Mexican food was spiced for Oregonians. This is a great example of that... More

This place has great food and great service. Very friendly. I keep going back to try new items. I love the tamales. I would definitely recommend on going in and giving them a try. Go a little early it dose get busy.

Best Mexican food at very reasonable prices. Coming from Southern California I have been on a constant search for good, 'real' Mexican food. La Carretta is the answer. Never ending chips and salsa are fresh and tasty. I recommend the fajitas. So good, so much. They will cook anything, any way you want, just ask. Superb service. Super fun place... More
