Salsa done right - Mi Carreta Mexican Grill

Mi Carreta Mexican Grill


Dining at eateries in Caldwell, Catawba, and Burke Counties, I have introduced myself to many Mexican restaurants. The Mexican menu and style of foods they create have become one of my all-time favorites. Salsa and chips before your lunch and dinner is a great way to socialize with your family or friends and is also a great (and free) appetizer. I have come accustomed to the different varieties of salsa throughout the many different restaurants over the years, but have come to dislike them. They are either plain or too spicy for my liking. A friend of mine turned me onto the cheese dip and so I began to order it (with a charge) to have with the chips instead of salsa. But at Mi Carreta their salsa was superb. It had a little spice with the right amount of taste and I loved it. They also served us “white sauce,” which I have never had before. It had a sweet taste to it, something to my tasting was like tartar sauce. Although I didn’t particularly like it, it was a sweet gesture to bring out two kinds and I enjoyed tasting something new.
Our lunch meal was also magnificent. I had the Topo Polo, which was topped with mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and white cheese. The sides included rice and beans and are normal sides for these types of meals. My friend had the lunch Fajitas. She was very grateful that they came with more tortillas than the normal restaurant. Her meal was also blessed with many shrimps, which you do not get in many places. Needless to say, Mi Carreta Mexican Grill did not scamper on the meats or plate size. We walked away being full and feeling like we had been served with a smile and gratitude for eating at their locale. They are located at 1146 Hickory Blvd Sw, Lenoir, NC 28645. A great place for a dining experience you won’t forget.

Mexican foods at it's finest!
