I went for lunch and order the tamales with green sauce. Quick and friendly service at a great price. I got there around 11am and it was not to crowded. Looks like it could get much busier after 12pm for lunch. Also had food catered by them later in the week for lunch. The mini burritos and chimichangas were very... More

This place is a throwback to the 1970's, at least from a food perspective. If you ever had takeout from years past, and want it again, Carolinas is your place. Did I mention the tortillas? Best flour tortillas you can but anywhere (excellent chorizo too!)

When we have out-of-town guests, we will take them to Carolina's. The food is so good that it's common to wait in lines to get food or a table. I'd suggest calling ahead if you are in a rush. Family favorites are the chimichangas, carne asada burrito, flautas, and--of course--TACOS! My children enjoy the cheese quesadillas. Food is affordable, and... More

Best bean and cheese burrito on the planet! Both locations are fantastic. Always busy so give yourself some time, but well worth it. Enjoy!

This is good Mexican food! The tortillas are great, the meats, sauces and salsa all excellent. We have eaten here twice in the past week after a friend told us about it (we are new to the area).Not fancy, but a nice, casual atmosphere to eat in, and they obviously do a large take-out business. Prices are quite reasonable.

Was at this place on April 1 at around 7:37pm, I ordered at #7 Combo, chicken soft tacos. Short ride home. Found the tortillas falling apart, very little chicken.

Been hear a few times and the food is always good. We gone for lunch and dinner and its always been busy. The staff is friendly and is always cleaning and replenishing the salsa. It's decent sized but always packed and loud. There's plenty of parking and the prices are good. Two dinner plates and a drink was about $20.

The food here is pretty good. The lunch hour here is a zoo and it takes a while to get your food so hopefully you have an hour or you won't make it back in time. This place would be better just for a drive through meal it just takes to long to get your food.
