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

I had heard of Carolina's since moving to Phoenix four years ago and we finally went for lunch today. This restaurant is an "order at the counter" place and then try to find a seat on a busy Saturday. Chips and salsa have to be purchased if you want them before your meal. I had a combo plate of soft... More

They've been a Valley landmark for many years, it's authentic Phoenix Mexican food. Carolina's has been family owned since day one, they never sold out and the food is simply spectacular. I have been to all the Valley locations, but it's been a good two years since my visit to this location. My visit takes place on a Saturday, I... More

I have been here a couple times, one of the better Mexican food places in the west valley. The food could have more flavor but it is still delicious and they have aqua frescas (Mexican flavored waters). The staff are super friendly!

This is a Mexican fast food style restaurant but with everything freshly made. They sell flour tortillas grande. Service is fast for eat in or take out. We went on a Tuesday evening and there was barely a wait, but a steady flow of customers. I had the green chile with rice and beans and a chicken tamale to go.... More

After hearing so many rave about Carolinas we gave it a try. I had the highly recommended green chili with one of Carolinas famous tortillas. My wife had a chicken tostada. Green chili had a nice kick and plenty of meat, but was otherwise tasteless. Rice and refried beans were a waste of time and calories. My wife said the... More

I always get the red chile with rice and beans also 1 of their famous flour tortillas....makes for a very satisfying meal!!!! I also like their beef tacos. Service even though is would be considered fast food Mexican...can be alittle slow to deliver sometimes. But it's always consistently very good!!!!

Amazing place, they had an amazing choice on the menu. Everything looked great, hard to choose. Expect to wait for your order during the busy hours, we went early Saturday morning and there was already a line for both ordering and to pick up your food. Lots of tables but no where to sit, that's how you know the food... More
