“Our Go to Restaurant when we're in the mood for Mexican”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

Great place when you want good quality Mexican food for a reasonable price, served quickly by a friendly, competent staff. The large facility competently serves parties of one to parties of 10 or more. The salsa and chips are perfect to hold you the short wait 'til your food is served. The food is served hot and is plentiful. The Margaritas are good and provide the perfect compliment to the Mexican fare. This is a family friendly restaurant so is not necessarily the place sit and read a book. But if you want good food and are looking for the best place in town to find it, La Carreta Mexican Restaurant is the place to go.

“Better than average”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Higher quality food preparation and tastier than average mexican fare. Still, quickly and mass produced in a rush for the crowds, so quality sometimes suffers. Staff is friendly, english-speaking is sometimes limited. Salsa is fresh. Margaritas are good

“Decent Mexican food, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

We were in the mood for Mexican and took the kids to La Carreta since it is very near out house. It was somewhat a mix between authentic and Tex-Mex. The service was fast and friendly, the food was enjoyable.

“great mexican food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

I've actually been to this place several times now. The white cheese dip is great with the chips...this is a must-have every visit. The margaritas are also a highlight of any visit - our fav is mango.
