worst Quesadilla ever, not enough cheese so quesadilla kept falling apart, quesadilla was not even cut, looked like a big taco, had to ask for sour cream/guacamole standard at most Mexican restaurants, will not order from this place again, not worth the value or money

Excellent family run place. Food is typical Mexican fare. The burrito Jalisco is a favorite of mine. Fajitas are good but they only give you 2 tortillas to start with. My family loves this place an we eat here several times per month.

This place was of the first one to bring real Tex-Mex to Winston-Salem!! The food quality still good but the service is terrible, the waiting staff stands around like they are in the ozone, too bad the manager is a great person.

Basic Tex Mex flavors with a splash of authenticity added. Lunch specials are appealing, but dinner menus add substantially to the price and do not deliver the tastiness required for an enjoyable meal.

This is 2 stars above Taco Bell. It is a nice, quick, inexpensive place for good food. I always get the chicken soup. The kids like fajitas. Husband gets the combo #1 all chicken. That's about it. Very friendly and attentive wait staff.

La Carreta is our "go to" place for Mexican food. It is consistently delicious and the service is excellent.
