I had Carretero breakfast and it was delicious. I also ordered take out. The service is fast and the food is very good and so is the coffee.

The place is open 24/7 and it is always packed. for good reason the food is awesome but don't fear having to wait somehow they always make room and before you know it you're enjoying great Cuban food. Breakfast, lunch, dinner or just for a snack and a coffee or to share a beer with a friend. This is the... More

Always crowded - and with reason - because food is authentic, prices are very reasonable, service is attentive. Food is always fresh - there is a lot of kovement in the restaurant...and it is open late!

I had lunch with some friends at this location. The food was extremely good but the service was deplorable. Our waitress Ana Ruiz brought our food and completely forgot our table. We never got a refill for water and she didn't ask if we wanted another beer, we did want. Never came back to ask about our meal. We had... More

Very good food common among all chain. Service was not bad, very busy. Go with someone who can speak Spanish; not necessary but a plus.

Dear Trip Advisor: this is a Cuban Restaurant, not a Spanish restaurant. Despite the fact the Spanish is spoken in both countries, Spanish food is food that is eaten in the Iberian peninsula, this, clearly is not Spanish food.

We have had the same waitress when she is available for the same length of time. There are menus both in Spanish and English and the wait staff for the... More

I prefer this location to the others I have dined at. Consistently good food and service. A great place to have your favorite Cuban dish. La Carreta has a nice casual atmosphere and is great for all age groups. Very reasonably priced also. My husband and I took his sister on our last visit to Miami, the bill was a... More
