I always get the red chile with rice and beans also 1 of their famous flour tortillas....makes for a very satisfying meal!!!! I also like their beef tacos. Service even though is would be considered fast food Mexican...can be alittle slow to deliver sometimes. But it's always consistently very good!!!!

Amazing place, they had an amazing choice on the menu. Everything looked great, hard to choose. Expect to wait for your order during the busy hours, we went early Saturday morning and there was already a line for both ordering and to pick up your food. Lots of tables but no where to sit, that's how you know the food... More

If you want authentic Phoenix red and green chile dishes, then this is the place for you! No bad dishes on the menu, it's an old school taco shop/restaurant so order away and enjoy. Homemade salsa, chips, menudo, etc. A Phoenix staple for years. You go once, you will always return!

They have the best fresh tortillas and really good cheap mexican food. I can't get enough of their chunky beef enchiladas. This may be the only place in town that serves them like that. It doesn't get any better than order of beef enchiladas and a cheese quesadilla.

I truly enjoyed eating at Carolinas Mexican Food. They make homemade tortillas and sell all sizes a la carte. Their pricing is very good for the different combinations they serve. I ate their in the 2 days I stayed in Peoria 3 times.

Had our wedding reception catered by Carolinas this past weekend. Reasonable prices, great food. Ordered the Green and Red Chili, Machaca, and Chicken with rice and beans. Ordering was easy, and just picked it up and the party was handled for food.

Carolinas Mexican Restaurant came highly recommend. Pretty much a fast food restaurant and was just average for us. But it was busy! We tried, taco's and small chimichangas, each came with rice and beans. Portions were filling but not to flavorful. Salsa was very good. Pretty good ride for us so likely would not go out of our way to... More
