I've been coming to this La Carreta since I was a child. I couldn't imagine this area of Bird Road without it. The food is always consistently delicious and known for its authentic Cuban cuisine. You can't go wrong with anything you choose here. The last time I went I simply had a bowl of chicken soup and that alone... More

Every trip to miami, this is one of the mandatory stops for me. Their arros con pollo is the bomb, and their dessert pastries and flan must not be missed. And the prices are right (maybe ever too low) When have you heard that last?

CAme here with my son to celebtate him getting his learners permit. He actually drove here from the DMV. He had the chicken milanese with white rice and black beans. I had the caldo gallego and the cuban sandwich. All the food was very good and the service was also good.

The cheese and guava empanadas and cheese Danish were fresh, flaky and hit the spot for a hungry traveler. Love the Drink options too!

This review is actually referring to the location at 10633 NW 12th St., Miami, Fl. 33172. A small restaurant with traditional Cuban décor -- family atmosphere with servers in Cuban-style attire. Extensive menu. Tried the "Cuban Classic Sampler" @ $12.95. Liked most of the items although some were "borderline". Delicious green split pea soup with garlic toast, which was $4.50... More

By Cuban standards, and this review is made by a Cuban, the food is average. My food was way too salty. The atmosphere is of a classical Cuban restaurant, so if you want to have a Cuban experience, go for it.

My sister, her kids and I made a pit stop here for lunch. We ordered the Grilled Chicken Breast and Palomilla Steak; everything was fresh and delicious. Rigoberto took great care of us; we'll be back.

Had dinner and the food and service were friendly in English or Spanish...just keep in mind the menu is Cubano and very diverse. Nice place to have dinner after shopping at the mall.
