I've been to several La Carreta locations over the years and this location is about the same as the others. The food is typical restaurant chain quality. Service is average and the staff were friendly. I would say it's average to above average Tex Mex.

I have never paid so much for frozen food before. We all ordered off the lunch menu and everything was horrible. The beans were so salty they couldn't be eaten. I ordered the chili relleno and it wasn't properly heated. The food is horrible. I...More

I enjoy their salsa. I always end up asking for more. It is not overpowered by onions. Their enchiladas are tasty, and I enjoy them. Their beef sometimes can be a little chewy, which is way I gave them a Very Good. Other than that,...More

Sorry to say I tried this place twice and was disappointed with the food and the service both times. The location and atmosphere are great so I really wish it was better, but I won't be going back.

Ate here twice this month and both times were good. Margaritas are really good but not cheap. Great Guacamole. Service could use a little pep in the step .

It's been a good while since I last ate here. I probably won't go back. The atmosphere is pretty much nil, the service was ok, the food was awful. I drank water or tea, so can't comment on the bar. It was an underwhelming experience....More

La Carreta is consistently good. The menu is diverse but is traditional. The servers are always nice and efficient. I have been here 20+ times and never had a bad experience. The prices are reasonable.

My coworkers and I visited her for Cinco de mayo and was asked how long we were going to be because others were waiting. When you're spending your money at an establishment, this is the last thing you expect to be asked.

The chips and salsa was good. That's all I had in the way of food. I was there for margaritas and they were very good. All are made by hand, even the frozen ones are made by hand before freezing.
