Best bean and cheese burrito on the planet! Both locations are fantastic. Always busy so give yourself some time, but well worth it. Enjoy!

This is good Mexican food! The tortillas are great, the meats, sauces and salsa all excellent. We have eaten here twice in the past week after a friend told us about it (we are new to the area).Not fancy, but a nice, casual atmosphere to eat in, and they obviously do a large take-out business. Prices are quite reasonable.

Was at this place on April 1 at around 7:37pm, I ordered at #7 Combo, chicken soft tacos. Short ride home. Found the tortillas falling apart, very little chicken.

Been hear a few times and the food is always good. We gone for lunch and dinner and its always been busy. The staff is friendly and is always cleaning and replenishing the salsa. It's decent sized but always packed and loud. There's plenty of parking and the prices are good. Two dinner plates and a drink was about $20.

The food here is pretty good. The lunch hour here is a zoo and it takes a while to get your food so hopefully you have an hour or you won't make it back in time. This place would be better just for a drive through meal it just takes to long to get your food.

My favorite thing about Arizona is getting authentic mexican food and Carolina's is one of my many must stop destinations when I visit. Homemade tortilla's make all the difference and I love that you can order some to take home! This is a no frills, fast food, mexican cuisine experience. It's almost always crowded, a sign that the food is... More

We went here about 2 months ago and picked up an order to go. I almost spilled the food getting into the car which made me count the tacos. We were MISSING 1 TACO in the order. I ran back inside, got my taco and didn't think anything of it. We went here about 2 weeks ago. Again an order... More

This place was recommended to me by a family member and I will be forever grateful. The red chili plate at this establishment was awesome, I couldn't have done a better job myself. The tortillas are homemade and fresh to order. You order your own food at the counter and it's served in to go containers so you can take... More
