After living in Arizona for 15 years, it was difficult to find good Mexican food in the east. La Carretta is like sitting down to a Mexican family meal. The real deal.

I've been to several of the La Carreta Restaurants and they have great food & fast service. They are a favorite for lunch!

Most of the time we go there to eat but this time we had to do carry out. It was so much more expensive!! Wow I couldn't believe it. The food was ok. But I will never do that again.

This particular Mexican restaurant is our favorite in the whole Tri-Cities area. We ordered a #3 and enchilada supremes. Both were very good. Always enjoy the chips and salsa, sometimes salsa has extra kick (which we enjoy).

We got a number three and a pollo something (it said new item next to it). It was chicken, onions, special sauce, rice and beans. Both were delicious. This new items that I tried though was very different and I really liked it.

Ate here with my daughter. It was around 2:00, so things were a little slow. We were seated immediately - menus & chips & salsa followed quickly. I ordered the beef taco salad, my daughter ordered a beef burrito. We also order cheese dip &...More
