My daughter and I had a great lunch at La Carreta the other day. The food was excellent. I had the carnitas and my daughter had the kids taco rice & beans. The portions were good and at excellent prices. I thought the restaurant and bathrooms could use some TLC, but the food was good!

This place has the outward appearance of being a chain restaurant, based on the look of the building and the signage. It is, in fact, an independent restaurant with respectable Mexican food. I arrived at about 7:30 PM on an Friday evening and, although it was fairly crowded, I lucked into an available booth and was seated immediately. I started... More

La Carreta is my favorite mexican in the Winchester area. Great enchaladas, and even better frozen strawberry margaritas. I enjoy the salsa and chips.

In my opinion, this has the best Mexican food in Winchester! My wife and I were tired after shopping and felt like a good Mexican dinner. LaCaretta delivered on quality and pricing. Our selections were outstanding and very reasonably priced compared to others in the area. Hard to dc find that combination! I would go back again anytime. Only one... More

Food good. Service not so much. The Food was Delicious. Price is good. The Server was more interested in cleaning up than service. Never asked if I wanted more drink or chips or even dessert. Might have been a bad day for her so I might try this one again..... Or I might not.

But to my pleasant surprise it turned out to be a very ploeasant mexican emporium where a godd friend and I had a great supper, him with beef fajitas and I with a combination plate of beef buritto, chile relleno and beef enchilada, accompanied with a salad. The service was carried with humor and efficiency, with no hesitation when we... More

The place has a tired and slightly worn look. The server was very nice, however. The chips were only slightly better than cardboard and were served with a tomato sauce based salsa--no chopped tomatoes in this dish. The burritos were wrapped in soggy tortillas and both chicken and beef were tasteless. I had eaten here several years ago and had... More
