Our server (manager) was friendly, fun and helpful with her recommendations. The food was great! (We've both lived in Texas so we're picky.) I had the seafood chimichanga. And, oh, yeah, "the top shelf" margarita could be called "the best" as far as I'm concerned.

We have come to this restaurant for years now but I have never wrote a review. The new owner has maintained the food quality which is always good. The prices have changed and are more expensive than it was. We do not go to Carrieta...More
