“Good food and good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012 via mobile

Salsa was fresh. Order the mexican guacamole rather than the reg guac; mex guac was fresh with chunks of avocado and freshened by lime. We ordered a variety of dishes; no one was displeased. Our waiter was prompt and there when we needed him without interfering with our conversation. Not five stars but better than a lot of the bland texmex versions out there.

Stopped at this place while on a cross country trip, spent the night in town. Food was decent with large portions. The service was efficient.

“Mexican Fare/No Surprises”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

These restaurants started out as a few in our area and have spread out quite a bit....their food is just OK, and many younger customers like it for the prices.

“The Colonial Heights location is our favorite - Love the food!!! Love the house margarita!!! Really like the staff!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

You won't have to wait long unless you arrive on Sunday after church. Other than that, you should pretty much be seated right away by someone with a friendly smile. You will also find that you won't have to wait very long for your food to arrive. Tip for those of you looking for a more authentic mexican dish - Most of the food at any LaCarretta has been Americanized but It is still a great place to eat. We have been eating at the Colonial Heights location for many years and still crave it when we are out of town for more than 4 or 5 days.
