Phoenix New Times' Description

A Valley legend since 1968, Carolina's has a cult following for its out-of-this-world homemade tortillas. But folks from all walks of life line up at the bare-bones (no A/C) shop to gorge on green corn tamales, enchiladas, red machaca burros and, on weekends, menudo. Breakfast burros are another delicious treat.

    Wow. Carolina's is a perfect little hole-in-the-wall type place with, like everyone else mentioned, truly amazing tortillas. I got a bean and potato burrito and a soft shell chicken taco. I would've been full with just the burrito - but the taco was delicious and totally worth being over-full for.

    If you want a lunch or dinner that's cheaper and tastier than fast food,... More >>

    They have huge tortillas that are delicious, fresh, and soft. I usually get some of their refried beans and tortillas and cook the rest of home with carne asada and fried onions and peppers with some lettuce and salsa. Delicious!

    I try to hit up this place every time I visit Phoenix.

    The tortillas are amazing. We're talking doughy finger goodness.

    The all-you-can-drink horchata ain't bad either.

    the bullet holes in the wall are just as authentic as the food! Super delicious with great prices and be sure to take a dozen fresh made tortillas home as well!
