We are back open today for the first time since the lock down. We are CLEAN READY AND EXCITED TO SEE EVERYONE! It's not any good at all with out all you great people to serve.

Cinco De Mayo is kinda a lame costume party this year. Come in disguise and start your celebration with us!

So continuing our day by day brainstorming of what can we do next to meet the ever changing situation...I brought in my Food Saver vacuum food sealer. With the proper lead time and a little extra dough to cover the cost we can seal some items for freezing or to extend fridge time.

One of our regulars came up with the idea of bringing in her own container for our Feed Four special. It took a little longer than our regular take out but it sure saves the land fills. We are in favor of it. Let us know if you would like to to use your own container when you call in your order.

We absolutely love Carreta! My daughter loves the chicken quesadillas, the chips & salsa are very tasty, the employees are all so friendly and go above and beyond to satisfy special requests and provide great service! One of our favorite spots to dine.

I have driven by this place so many times without ever giving it a chance. My brother was in town and wanted authentic Mexican. After looking at the reviews, I though it worth the chance. Boy am I glad I did. Service was outstanding. Our waitress was very attentive and food delivered promptly. I ordered the chimi combo plate. Very tasty and well prepared. My brother ordered a combo plate and was likewise pleased. Food tasted fresh and very well seasoned. Margarita was good and well mixed. The decor may not be restaurant chain worthy, but somehow that added to the ambiance. Everything including restrooms were very clean. In my option, this speaks of a family run business that cares about what they do. I would recommend you consider abandoning the Denver chains, and give this place a try. You might, like me, find a new favorite!
