I had heard wonderful things about La Carreta from people for years. I finally tried it and I don't think the food lived up to the hype. The food wasn't bad, but it wasn't as good as other Mexican restaurants I have tried. I ordered a taco salad and it didn't include very many ingredients, and just overall wasn't very satisfactory. I would try some of the other quality Mexican restaurants in and around Portland before I would go back here.
