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

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

We have visited La Carretta several times, and they never disappoint! They always have a friendly greeting ready when you walk in...seat you and soon you have chips and DELICIOUS salsa on your table (I go with my fiance and they put a salsa bowl down for each of us...yum!). One of my favorites there is the fajitas. My fiance... More

We have eaten at La Caretta several times, but it's been a while, so we stopped in last weekend. I was pleasantly surprised to see some new menu items featured, including fish tacos....I LOVE fish tacos! As others have said, the salsa is great. Also, there staffing is pretty consistent--we see the same servers time after time. They are either... More

After an afternoon of hiking in the Columbia River Gorge, I was ready for some calories. Started off with a bottomless bowl of chips to go with delicious salsa (almost pico de gallo, but salsa-fied). Large chunks of veggies to go with a flavorful base. Main dish was the carne asada burrito made with flank steak. Thinly sliced pieces of... More
