Easy casual atmosphere, good food, prompt service. One of our favorite "go to" restaurants that doesn't break the bank or the "calories for the day" if we split a plate of fajitas and go easy on the chips and salsa. No cheese dip!

First off, let me say that I am a big fan of Carreta's. But, this one is off. There was no receptionist. There were people waiting for their tables to be cleared, etc. They only brought us one little bowl of salsa. Now the food....More

Hostess was cold and unfriendly. Server was cold, unfriendly, unhelpful, and inattentive. Food did not taste fresh or good at all. Wondered why the place was empty at 6 on a weeknight. Will not go back.

Bad service, mediocre food and visually nauseating decor. I have been about 3 times (never my own choice) and its been 'blah' each time. Not to mention how many other great Mexican restaurants you can go to instead. Leave this one behind.

Food was excellent, I had a Chile relleno and the Caretta dinner. The menu called the dinner tex mex but regardless it was delicious. My wife had the Monterrey lunch and our guests had the fajita trio and thought it was really good.

I really liked the chips and queso there. Also, it's a good place for large groups, families, etc. The food is good, the service is good, you can get in and out pretty quickly even when they are busy.

La Carretta's in Covington is good. The last time we were there we ordered a dish that did not taste right . The manager very quickly took it back and did not charge us. Seems that they had changed a particular cheese and it was...More
