Reviewed April 20, 2012

The atmosphere is very attractive. The service varies. Prices are very good. However, the food quality is not very good. This La Caretta is not nearly as good as its sister restaurant in Lexington. The flavors are not balanced, and one cannot expect the same flavor of your favorite meal on each trip. We have eaten here often and have decided to not go back.

Service: Our waitress seemed to want to be somewhere else. Or maybe she was just tired. Or bored. Or very apathetic.

Food: The rice was OK. Just OK. The tortillas surrounding the enchiladas were rubbery and inedible. The chicken in the enchiladas and tacos was cooked with green pepper, and OK if you liked it cooked that way. But just OK. The beef on the tostada looked strange, but tasted OK. Overall, the food was unimpressive. Some of it was inedible. The majority of it went home in a take-out box. My friend's dogs seemed to enjoy it, but then again, they'll eat anything, so that's not much of a recommendation.

Value: We used a buy-one-get-one free coupon, so it was a better value than it would have been if we'd paid full price. It definitely wouldn't have been worth the full price, even allowing for the fact that the dogs got fed, too.

Atmosphere: The décor was "generic Mexican restaurant" style, but I've seen it done much, much better.

Overall, underwhelming. I won't be going back. Not recommended.

This is a regular spot for me. Their salsa is some of the best around (imo)--not overly chunked w/ veggies, some heat but not too much. Grilled chicken quesadillas are also a staple. Chicken is cooked perfectly and they are not stingy on their queso blanco topping. I love this place as I have no problem finding options that aren't smothered in peppers and onions like you deal with at restuarants. The wait staff are friendly and upbeat. Many times you hear them singing songs are they go to and fro from the kitchen. There's nothing fancy here that's going to blow your mind but if you like your mexican food simple, well-made and cheap, then La Carreta is the place for you.

We pick up from La Caretta from time to time. It's pretty much your average Mexican food. Usually pretty good - no complaints here.
