Pre-shredded processed cheese, shredded lettuce from a bag, refried beans from a can. Nothing fresh or even tasty here. Everything is bland and boring, no spice or flavor. The rating was strictly for the service, which was nice.

My wife and I decided to try a different restaurant and found ourselves at La Carreta for dinner. Service was a bit slow even though it was less than half full, but the food made up for the mediocre service. We will be back.
