The guacamole was tasty. The water was good. It's close to I 85. But the food and service were bad. I had the quesadilla verde. It was a bit of a misnomer because the tiny amount of guacamole did not qualify it to be verde/green. Skip this one. There is fast food nearby.

I have eaten at 8 Mexican restaurants in the area & this one is very good. Excellent service & reasonable prices. Try the Torito appetizer if you like guacamole

Food here is very good and authentic Mexican food. Service is great. I think they came to fill your glass at each sip.

We enjoyed the shrimp quesadilla, Texas fajitas, salsa, and margaritas. We ate and drank for under $32. It was very delicious and a lot of fun. We will definitely go back. The food came out very fast and our server was very nice

Best and cheapest mexican food in town. Still not very cheap, but cheaper than anywhere else in town. The service can be great on one visit, then terrible on the next. Kind of hit or miss.

This place is inexpensive and what you would expect at a chain Mexican restaurant. They have good lunch and daily specials. Don't arrive right at opening (11:00 AM) the service is slower than if you come when they are busy.

La Carreta had good food, but I've had better Mexican food. I personally prefer Mazatlan down the street.

My family visits this restaurant at least bi-weekly. Although the food is not extraordinary, it is very good, always hot, plentiful, and reasonably priced. I love their guacamole and peluche de camaron with lots of shrimp and scallops on the plate. Service is sometimes hit or miss, but there are servers who we love and are dedicated to making our...

Horrible excuse for Mexican food. Had a Chile Rellano and it came with just the sauce, chile not included. My husband had the Steak Picada, it came served on mashed potatoes! Bad food, not recommended.
