Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 May 2015

During the last three years, my wife and I have dined (25 x's for dinner, 4 x's for lunch) @ Mi Carreta - Blowing Rock, N.C. We live half of the year in Blowing Rock and when we elect to dine out, casual, no-hassle, laid back, then it's Mi Carreta! Dine inside (generally there's one soccer game on from Mexico and most other sports events of the day) or dine out on the patio (weather permitting) it's all fun. The chips are always fresh, crisp, and the salsa is very good (unlimited). Order the guacamole, it's made right at your table - everything is FRESH, and you select ALL the ingredients that comprise your mix - EXCELLENT!! Mi Carreta's menu covers all the basic categories offered in 90% of the "authentic" Mexican Restaurants. There are no losers on the Mi Carreta menu, the food is fresh, delicious, not over-spiced and not over-priced. The Margarita's come in three sizes, the largest size can keep your kidneys busy hours later and those large glasses could serve as a home for 10 goldfish - DELISH! The staff are friendly and courteous and when the restaurant is "slammed," they are able to remain attentive and pleasant. Good Value, Good Service and GREAT Food! Parking in many BR Restaurants can be challenging, however, Mi Carreta has adequate parking. Can't wait for HW 321 to be completed!

I enjoyed lunch here with coworkers and I will return again. The food was very good. Prices are reasonable, service was quick and friendly, and the environment is cozy. The only negative I experienced was the table arrangement coupled with the size of the chairs makes it crowded at the table. Otherwise, a great place to eat.

We needed good food and soon! Found it at MI CARRETAS on the big road parrallel to the little main street, turning right up hill off of Morris. Anthony was the waiter, and he brought us a sweet creamy dip and a big bowl of salsa with our homemade chip. Ordered a bowl of guacamole – he wheeled over his cart of ingredients and made it right there after asking us what we wanted in it! I had 4 items from the combo list: Chile Relleno, Tamale Carne Asada, Charro Beans (with sausage and bacon, a side salad (quite ample) and a Modelo Negro. My date had the Camarones especiale, tostadas, and burrito. Food was great, Anthony kept us plied with tea and beer, and the whole thing was a bargain - $32 with drinks AND the guac. We’re only staying a short time, but we’re going again. Two thumbs up !

Food was delicious and we had a large party, but they seriously need more staff. It was painful how slow they were to refill chips and drinks. Guacamole was awesome though!
