Quick Service and Good Food

Our food arrived quicker than Taco Bell. I was completely shocked. The sweet tea was delicious. The nachos supreme was wonderful. The only thing I was disappointed about was I didn't get guacamole like the description on the menu. I would spruce up the bathrooms a bit too if I were the owner.

I had the best shrimp dinner that I've had in a Mexican restaurant! Excellent flavor. The salsa was spicy and one of the best with our chips

The prices are so so reasonable. No surprise itmis a college student favorzite. We were at the one over by Bojangles. Not sure it makes a difference. The decorations... More

While visiting a friend in Lynchburg, we decided to have lunch at La Carreta. Even though it was very busy, we were greeted warmly and seated quickly. The chips were light and crunchy. Our server brought us 2 kinds of sauces--salsa and a creamy white dip--both delicious and addicting! We both ordered the chimi lunch plate and were not disappointed.... More

If you want Mexican this is at the top of the list for this area, but my last visit could have been better. I called for take out. The waiter took my order but I noticed noise in the background. Brought the meal home. My wife's order didn't have beef or cheese on the side as I ordered(Talavera) plus my... More

Lots of very good Mexican food. The margarita was good too, but on the smaller side than I had expected. And the service was very prompt and efficient. I would definitely eat there again.

If you want standard Mexican food that is tasty, fast and inexpensive, this is one of you two primary choices for this area. This restaurant has taken over the area and at last count there were four locations. The one on Timberlake got a face lift and now is one of the most attractive restaurants in this town. The staff...

The food was delicious and the service was fantastic. We arrived at 10:10pm and they close at 11. Totally did not expect them to be very welcoming but they were!!! You would have thought that their night was just getting started as nice as everyone was. Highly recommend!!

Great new building. Quick service. Friendly staff. Great value combinations. Salsa was not too spicy but asked for the hotter salsa and it was better. Saw table side fresh guacamole-outstanding, made me want to come back for that alone. Food was good-not too spicy but good basic mexican food.

Went to the new one on Timberlake Rd with my husband and daughter. Waited 20 minutes then told we had to sit at the bar. Got to the bar and then told we could not sit there with our daughter. We waited 20 minutes for a table and then were shown the door. Had to go somewhere else. No sorry... More
