but since I'm not an afficianado, it was fine. The drinks were large and tasty. Our service was attentive and filled the free chips and salsa. My girlfriend is more experienced with this food and required more hot sauce.

It’s hard to find good Mexican food and sadly, Carreta’s is like most places...mediocre and underwhelming. My margarita was almost clear in color. It was mostly tequila and lacking any of the other flavors that makes a margarita taste good. It was so strong that...More

Great selection, great prices, solid service - regular lunch spot. Not trying to be more than the cuisine allows, the good selection of items at very reasonable prices - Slightly expensive queso, slightly watered down salsa - but the chips are fresh and plentiful. Friendly...More
