We stopped based on some recent reviews. We both had fajita salad. It was very good. The place was clean. It was busy and they only had two waiters but they were able to keep up. We will stop there again to try other entrees.

The restaurant has very authentic Mexican style and great food. Ordered virgin margarita which was very good. Waiter Alejandro was efficient and friendly. Price was reasonable. Less expensive combo meal was quite filling.

We have driven past this place a million times and finally decided to stop, wish we had come sooner. I had the tamale- perfect! Free chips and salsa. Great virgin margarita. First of many visits to come.

This restaurant not only has amazing, delicious food and very kind waiters, but it interior is a reason to go all in itself. The tables and chairs are hand crafted with amazing scenery and every item is painted in bright, vivid colors. I could sit in there for hours just looking at all the chairs and tables. I enjoy the...

This is a place we average going to about two to three times a month. We have always gotten great service and the food is good. Though not probably as authentic as some might like, we enjoy it. It is very reasonable and the margaritas as delicious. We really like the new tables, chairs and decor facelift.

Once again the service and food was exceptional. The service is always great with little wait for your food. They have added new table and chairs that are very nice. With several new Mexican restaurants opening in town, we have tried the others and keep returning to the best.

There for a birthday with what turned into 15 people on a Tuesday night. They only had 2 people working and they did an excellent job. And remained courteous and pleasant. Tried the Chili Colorado. Very tasty (spicy).

What a pleasant place to go...low-key and quiet. It was our first time in Manitowoc...time to find a great Mexican restaurant. La Carreta ("The Road") does not disappoint. We were seated in a quiet corner, a great place to visit. The wait staff was quite helpful, unobtrusive but very attentive. The menu was enticing with many choices. Then the food... More

We came here for lunch yesterday. The menu has a lot of choices. My burrito was huge and really good. I typically like having my cold ingredients on the side, but somehow they managed to keep the sour cream cold and the lettuce crisp inside the burrito. Two thumbs up! ¡Muy bien!

After visiting a customer we were looking for a quick and simple meal. The serving size was perfect, we didn't leave feeling overstuffed and ready for a nap. The salsa and chips were full of flavor and our lunch was great.
