I enjoy their salsa. I always end up asking for more. It is not overpowered by onions. Their enchiladas are tasty, and I enjoy them. Their beef sometimes can be a little chewy, which is way I gave them a Very Good. Other than that,...More

Sorry to say I tried this place twice and was disappointed with the food and the service both times. The location and atmosphere are great so I really wish it was better, but I won't be going back.

Ate here twice this month and both times were good. Margaritas are really good but not cheap. Great Guacamole. Service could use a little pep in the step .

La Carreta is consistently good. The menu is diverse but is traditional. The servers are always nice and efficient. I have been here 20+ times and never had a bad experience. The prices are reasonable.

My coworkers and I visited her for Cinco de mayo and was asked how long we were going to be because others were waiting. When you're spending your money at an establishment, this is the last thing you expect to be asked.

The chips and salsa was good. That's all I had in the way of food. I was there for margaritas and they were very good. All are made by hand, even the frozen ones are made by hand before freezing.

Good food. Reasonable prices. SIX tables with FOUR waiters. Poorest service I've ever experienced! 15 minutes to approach our table to ask if we wanted drinks!
