We stopped here on a hot day, on our way to the coast. Friendly and quick service for our sopes and burritos. We will be back to try out the dinner choices.

Making our way from LA to Sonoma County we decided to detour off the 5 to give this place a try. Well worth it. Don't expect elegance or character. Just good good in a very casual setting.

Was pretty excited to stumble upon a nonchain restaurant open at 2 am, and when I read it was 24 hours I almost didn't believe it. They offered full menu and got two breakfast burritos with ham and holy cow they are massive way too much food we could have split one. It was very hot and simple with eggs,... More

Stopped there with my wife as we were driving from SF to LA. Homemade cooking burritos that were delicious! Beans very well prepared, we enjoyed our food and burritos were big! It was so cheap, I still can't believe it! We paid like $15 for two burritos and 3 sodas. We left a good tip as we were very happy!... More

This off the beaten path restaurant is short on atmosphere, but clean and the food is authentic. If it were in our hometown, we'd go weekly. If you like authentic flavors, it's a good place to stop in and eat.

After sitting in stopped traffic on the I5, it was time to eat and it wasn't going to be subway. The scenic skyline drive from interstate to town was well worth it. Super clean spot on the main drag. Spanish menu, numerous choices, including breakfast at 2pm! Knew we'd hit gold with the fresh chips and deliciosa salsa! A fan... More

La Carreta's is a worn little place in a worn, once a thriving oil bust town. The decor is metal tables and chairs in a large room with black and white earthquake damaged floor. Large 10' spaces between tables. The restaurant and bathrooms were clean and waitress was friendly and spoke perfect English. They were out of rice, served no... More

What better place to stop for Mexican food then Avenal on your way from hwy 5 to the coast or back. It's a bit of a backroad for us to go when we are tired of the 5. We were very happy with the food we got here. Husband had a chili verde burrito, pork and flour tortilla were excellent... More
