La Carreta Mexican Restaurant
Conveniently located at the intersection of Holgate and Highway 99, this old standby of a Mexican restaurant has been serving Portland inexpensive and decent Mexican food for over 20 years. While the main restaurant has the "advantage" of being serenaded by mariachi on weekend nights, those without children usually flock to the expansive bar in back. Don't miss their trademark bowl of liquor the size of your head, also on special every Saturday night with a two bowl limit.
The food is delicious, on fridays (and I think on saturdays as well) they have a very nice, energetic and entertaining guitar trio... their carne asada is the best I've had in PDX (I don't recommend their tamales though)...
Try it, it's good.
This is a great restaurant if you like this type of food. I don't take to it very well, and am never close to finishing a plate of food when my husband takes me here. He seems to love the place though, but its my least favorite.
There is nothing I don't like about this place. It's relaxing atmosphere is so comforting, that it's equally as good as eating in your own home. The staff there treats it's customers like family. There is a Mariachi band there on the weekends and they go from table to table playing songs, some in English, some in Spanish, but even the songs I can't understand are so beautiful. The value of the meals is pretty good as well. I have paid more than what I pay there for a plate of food that I finished, and when I eat here, I ALWAYS have leftovers. I highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone. There is something there for everyone. This is a place that I can trust. The inside of the place is painted beautifully as well. It's just so comfortable, that no matter who goes there, they will leave feeling full & satisfied, and they will tell ther friends about it.
