Offering up an extensive menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and serving breakfast all day long, there is something for everyone to enjoy at Carnitas Express.
The fajitas are always a crowd-pleasing favorite with enough to share. Order up the Steak Picado a la Mexicana Fajitas and enjoy diced steak cooked with jalapenos, tomatoes, and onions and served with Spanish rice, refried or black beans, guacamole, sour cream, and tortillas. Choose from any combination of steak, chicken, and/ or shrimp fajitas all served with bell peppers, onions, and tomatoes and a side of Spanish rice, refried or black beans, guacamole, sour cream, and tortillas for enough food to serve at least two.
With a huge selection of burritos and combinations to try, you can order up something new every time you come in. All of their burritos are available served plain or wet with either red or green sauce and melted cheese. For gigantic size appetites be sure to take on the El Matador burrito, which comes with the warning, “Order only if EXTREMELY hungry!” This mother of all burritos is loaded with your choice of meat, Spanish rice, refried beans, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, guacamole, and cheese.
If you’re looking for a little bit lighter fare, try one of their salads for a healthier option. Eva’s Salad Supreme is taste test approved by owner and operator Eva Duran. Packed with fajita style chicken breast, bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, and avocado and served with a tasty side of garlic bread this salad will leave your palate satisfied.
Other salads to choose from include the Chef Salad made with crispy salad greens, turkey, ham, mixed cheese, cucumbers, and tomatoes, the Grilled Chicken Salad, the Avocado Salad, the Crispy Chicken Salad, or the classic Dinner Salad. Add a hot cup of soup for a delicious soup and salad pairing.
