This was our first time visiting this restaurant and they had the set up really good due to the virus. I ordered a shrimp quesadilla dinner and they only use one tortilla and fold it over...not used to that because the other place I usually...go to uses 2 tortillas 🤷🏾‍♀️ Well they gave me the wrong food, looked like pulled pork. I did call and they asked me to bring it back and they made me a new dinner. However, the shrimp quesadillas was really soggy, it was just alright in flavor. I didn't like the rice and some of the rice was hard. The enchilada was ok... My husband had the shrimp fajita..sorry no pix...but it looked like a whole onion was cooked with it and 1 piece of red bell pepper and 2 pieces of green bell pepper. And the charged a different price then what the online menu had, like $4.45 moreMore

We eat at Carreta's quite often! The food is delicious, the staff is super friendly and the service is lightening fast no matter what time of day or how busy they are.

My wife and I eat there regularly and the food and service was really good. Our waiter quickly came to our table, greeted us and quickly took our order. The chips and salsa were at our table within 2 minutes. Our food order came out...piping hot, especially the sizzling chicken & steak fajitas. We used a Local Flavors coupon with ease and were even given drinks to go. This is always our go place when we crave Mixican cuisine. Try to eat there at least once or twice a month and never disappointed.More

Our waiter only identified himself as a humble server but he went way above and beyond for us! Food was very good and atmosphere is just as good.

We had a big group of eight people and we were able to get seated right away. Everyone ordered medium margaritas and they were good. We all ate chips and cheese before our dinners arrived. We all ordered different dinners and they all came out...the same time. The food was all hot and we were all full.More

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....My wife gets the Pollo Loco and there is no soup and the chicken is dried out and too salty. My fajitas were ok and the guacamole was very good.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.

The food is uninspired and uneven with no truly outstanding dishes and the quality has gone down over the past few years. The interior decor is left over from a prior restaurant with only alteration being a very unusual repainting of the walls and trim....Service is generally pleasant and fast with lots of turnover in wait staff.More
