La Carreta Mexican Restaurant
121 Express Ln, Lansing, KS 66043, United States

Review №1

I went here with my husband for the first (and last) time ever last night.Our service was wonderful, and the food tasted fine at the time. Around midnight we began having cramps and sour stomachs. We were up sick most of the night. I'll spare the details, but something was definitely not right with the food we ate. Still sick today with bad stomach problems.

Review №2

I love this place so much! We always go there whenever we get a chance usually on Sundays. We love to entertain friends from out of town and bring them to this restaurant. The margaritas are fantastic. Service is top-notch. Clean restrooms. Thank you La Carreta.

Review №3

The food and the service are always excellent. Ruben treats you like family. From guacamole to sangria to nachos, enchiladas, tacos and tamales, you can't go wrong with whatever you order. Disfrutar!

Review №4

So the staff is friendly, and very attentive... But this doesn't make my list of favorite Mexican restaurants. I'll go there if I don't want a longer drive, the food is ok just not spectacular.

Review №5

Excellent food with variety offerings on the menu. Better than most Mexican restaurants. Prices are reasonable. My wife enjoyed the Margarita.

Review №6

Good food decent service....but a cluster of at least ten people at very small counter to pay with no masks.....not even the cashier. When we arrived we had masks on and were seated outside distanced well from another group. Noticed people inside mostly had no masks but hey they were eating right? Won't be back till it feels safe. Felt very vulnerable upon leaving.

NOT TAKING PANDEMIC SERIOUSLYThis is the second time I have been to this place. Last time was pre-crisis and the food wasn't bad, but not anything to rave about. This time was my first outing to a sit down restaurant since restrictions have been lifted. We we came in, we noticed no personnel with masks on. We asked for outdoor seats, and was happy that we were seated a safe distance from the other diners. However, as soon as our server came to take our order, she stood right next to me without a mask.The utensils were wrapped in napkins, not sealed. The menus were large plastic laminated, instead of disposable. When our food came, the servers were not masked. Then later, towards the end of our meal, diners were seated at a table next to us, less than 6 feet. Apparently, limiting diners was not a priority, and it only got worse. Our server took our plates when we're finished, and the disappeared inside. We waited for our checks for nearly 10 minutes, when we just got up and went inside to pay our bill. When the server saw us, she gave us a wait a minute finger, and then we got our bill with absolutely no apologies at all for the wait. I would have given no stars, but my food was good, although my companions food was cold. If you take the pandemic SERIOUSLY, don't come here, because THEY DON'T.I won't be back.

Absolutely love the staff and the food here! My wife and I eat here at least once a month! You will not be disappointed with anything you get. My personal favorite is the spinach enchiladas you can't get them like this anywhere else!

Review №20

Excellent Mexican cuisine and great service. Drinks were delicious!

Review №21

La Caretta in Lansing is literally the best restaurant in Lansing. Their chips are always fresh and amazing. They salt them perfectly. Their barbacoa tacos are flavorful and not greasy. Whatever that seasoning is that they put on them is SO good! Salsa, guacamole (which is perfect) and their cheese dip with spinach is always perfect. They beat all other restaurants at amazing food. And they're so nice. They always get our order perfect as well. It feels like they enjoy what they do, and it shows!

Review №22

Consistent quality and very comfortable atmosphere. The staff is very good to customers. The menu has a great selection, anything you order will be great. Will always prefer this restaurant to any other Mexican restaurant

Review №33

Food was fresh and delicious. Owner was so friendly. We will be back!

Review №34

Good food, excellent selection, great service, ask for the hot salsa!

Review №35

Yesterday was the first time we came to that good restaurant. But It is no doubt not the last. We had great time with the courteous service, with the superb cooking and fine drinks and with the friendly cost. We will surely come back soon.

Review №36

Good menu selection. Large portions. Food was hot when it arrived at the table; well seasoned and flavorful. Service was prompt. Great visit.

Review №37

Today was my first trip to La Carreta. This experience was great. Not even a minute passes after being seated and we were brought a bowl of warm tortilla chips with salsa and asked about drinks. The drinks came swiftly and then we ordered the special...the seafood enchiladas. A brief wait was all until our food arrived. The food was hot as were the plates and our server even made sure to inform us about the hot plates to avoid us possibly being burned. The food was excellent. Very filling. The enchiladas were served with black beans and mexican rice. Not over seasoned nor bland. Both went great with the enchiladas. I would have to rate this restaurant a 5 star and suggest anyone new to the area, or just want something different, to try this restaurant. The food and service are a plus. A definite must try.

Review №38

Our favorite Mexican restaurant! Always friendly people. Always fast service. Food is excellent and always served hot. Frozen margaritas are great! Highly recommended.

Review №39

Awesome food, good atmosphere and reasonably priced.

Review №40

Awesome food, but not enough social distancing.

Review №41

Last week was our first time we visited this restaurant. But It is surely not the last time. We passed a splendid evening with the excellent service, with the magnificent meal and booze and with the comfortable cost. We will no doubt return there again.

Review №42

Staff was not friendly, food was lackluster, music and vibe of the place were boring. Only 2 good points were the salsa and the fact we didn't get sick after eating here. Not likely to return..

Review №43

Wonderful service and great margaritas, one of our favorite local spots! Plus the waiter said I have beautiful eyes. That counts for something, right?

Review №44

It is so gross don't waste your money or time I'm telling you

Review №45

Easily the best Mexican restaurant in Leavenworth. Service is quick and the food is delicious. Once I found this place there are days I have been here twice. The customer service is really good as well.

Review №46

Absolutely a place worth trying, the food is awesome and fresh, the prices are fair and it is regularly well organized there. Kudos.

Review №55

Food is always great. They just bring it so fast! I guess I should be happy about that but sometimes i like to enjoy my drink for awhile. I just say I will order later and they are fine with that. I don't do that if people are waiting though. Prices are good and they have kids plates too

Review №56

Excellent Mexican food. Not the coziest atmosphere around for Mexican, but some of the best food. Typically not too busy and good for groups. Everything I tried, Queso, Enchiladas, etc. were exquisite.

Review №57

Good service, good food, good margarita

Review №58

Excellent food and great service

Review №59

This is always excellent food & service. I had their seafood enchiladas special. Fabulous! That's my favorite dish of theirs & always order it when it's on the menu. My spouse loves their fajitas & it's his go-to meal. It's enough for 2 meals so that's perfect for him. Their guacamole is the best in town too. Did I mention how much I love eating here?

Review №60

I always thought this was a fast food chain and was reluctant to try it out but it's not! It's actually a very nice restaurant! Way better tasting food than La Mesa and better prices . This is My new favorite restaurant !!! Great atmosphere ,friendly staff , and strong drinks . Try the white jalapeño cream cheese sauce on anything !!!!

Review №61

Me and my wife love to come here because the customer service is always top of the line. The servers are very polite and the food is just absolutely amazing. I would recommend anybody to this lovely place. Keep up the good work!

Review №69

Wow. Went in with low expectations.. This is my new favorite. Food is great, fast service, very clean. Awesome job guys

Review №70

This is the closest you will come to authentic Mexican food. Ordering is fast. The food comes fast. The service is outstanding. I eat here so much, I should invest in stock. Only thing I hate about it is they make the best Margaritas and I had to stop drinking!

Review №71

Fast, easy ordering, lots of vegetarian options. Kept our drinks and chips refilled!

Review №72

Myself, my wife, and adult son had dinner there couple of days ago. The food and the margaritas get five stars, very delicious and satisfying. The business that night was not packed, but somewhat steady. The reason for the 3 stars is related to they're stinginess on the salsa that particular evening. We only received the initial round and even after putting our empty bowls at the edge of the table, never received a refill although they did keep bringing chips. Took a little longer than we would have liked after finishing our meal to receive the check. These things would have been easily understood had the restaurant been extremely busy however it was not. The wait staff was very polite and friendly, efficient. Will be back. Thanks la carreta.

Review №73

Favorite Mexican restaurant in the Lansing/Leavenworth area. The staff here are friendly and accommodating. You get great portions that are priced well. The food is always delicious and their nachos are unique and superb!!

Haven't had alot of there menu probably about 2%... Really not a fan of Mexican food.. and even though they started holding back on the meat... I give there fried Ground Beef a thumbs up

Review №86

Great place for Mexican food.You get a lot of food for your money. I always have a to go box to take home. Good service and very clean and comfortable atmosphere.

Review №87

Great food, clean, responsible prices. Large portions...

Review №88

The food used to be amazing but the last two visits hasn't been the same. Service is fast but not so friendly as it once was either. The server we usually have used to be so happy and talkative, he doesn't even smile anymore. I just feel their heart isn't in it anymore. I hope it returns to the same La Carreta we once loved!

Review №89

Ordered a to go meal, very fast service. Food was good. Will go back

Review №90

Great food love their white queso spinach dip. Always admittedly greeted walk in togo ordering always done fast.

Review №91

I enjoy the food here. It's greasy just like Mexican food should be. My favorite is the cheese and onion enchiladas. For appetizers I usually go with steak Super Nachos or their queso. Chips and salsa are free of course. Prices are decent and the bill is what you expect unlike other places around. Would recommend.

Review №92

Good food and prices. Excellent service! We'll be back.

Review №93

Fast, friendly, and delicioso.

Review №94

Great food here... I'm not a fan of Mexican food (but go because my family and friends are), their burgers are very good :)

Review №95

Great food, fast service, staff is very friendly! Great place for dinner with your family, friends or just a quick bite by yourself!

Review №96

Great food & outstanding service! Best Mexican food in Lansing and Leavenworth.

Review №97

Wasn't very good. Dont think I'd go back.

Review №98

Normally a great place for dinner. Lunch is a different story. Very disappointed with our last visit. Both the chicken and the beef we're over cooked and dried out. Took forever to get waited on. Not sure what happened that day.

Review №99

This is one of the best places locally to eat. Great food and friendly staff. Food quality has gone back up over the last few months.
