This restaurant is off the beaten path inva run down shopping center. The service was fast and friendly. Typical Mexicans menu. Food came fast and was very good. Great stuffed jalapenos wrapped in bacon were sooooo good. They were very busy so a reservation is suggested. Prices were typical and reasonable.

The salsa is full of flavor. Everything I have ordered is delicious. The wait staff attentive and the beers cold.

My wife and I just returned from a trip to the southwest and thought we could not possibly find good Mexican food at home anymore. We were pleasantly surprised by Mi Carreta. We had eaten here before but it had been quite some time. They have redecorated and redone there menu. Our waiter was in training and he was very... More

This place was busy as usual. We've been coming here for a few years every time we visit South Boston. We prefer this restaurant to the other 'Mexican' (I use this term loosely) restaurant on the other side of SoBo - Mexico Viejo. The margaritas were super strong and the food was delicious. The only drawback was having to wait... More

Moved here last June, this place has become our 'go to' place to eat. Always fast & delicious, plus affordable. More food then I can finish.

We've been here several times and really like the food. We tried the fried calamari, which is an appetizer, it was very interesting and fairly good. We like the burrito el Puerto, think that's the name of it that has chorizo in it and your choice of chicken or steak, with cheese sauce on top, has loads of flavor. Sometimes... More
