I have never had a bad experience here. The decor is bright and tastefully done. The service is excellent so the warm chips and salsa arrive immediately and are delicious. I've had enchiladas, tamales, burritos and fajitas that are equally delicious but the best thing that I've had that makes everything a "notch above" there is the pico de gallo.... More

We nick-named La Carreta "Taco Island" ..hehee Me and my husband love their taco's (hard shell of course). They hand shred the cheese and is fantastic! quick service, huge menu, and quaint décor make for a fun lunch or dinner. Prices are great, and follow on facebook and ask for a 10% of your dinner! I always seem to gravitate... More

We had ate at this restaurant at its old location 7-8 years ago and it was good. Now at their new digs the west side of town it still is good food good portion sizes and fast service. We will be trying them again soon.

Our business is located near La Carreta in Newport and we have tasted almost everything on the menu. We have never been disappointed! We have a wellness center,so most of our staff likes more health conscious meal options and the owners, cooks, and servers are always glad to prepare things based on our needs. Staff meeting favorite!

We eat here at least once a week and it is fantastic and very affordable. Highly recommend the shrimp and chicken fajitas and the chicken taco salad.

The service and food here were excellent but the restaurant's cleanliness left much to be desired. Not sure if we'll return but since it was our first time here we might give it another try. Everyone deserves a 2nd chance.

Great service and atmosphere...food has always been great and plentiful. They speak English and don't laugh at my Spanish spoken with an Appalachian accent.

Just extremely mediocre everything. Felt unclean, we were seated in a table that had not been wiped down, after delivering our drinks, our server did not return to take our food order for about another 20 minutes or so. Our order was taken down by another server, who had watched us sit there sit looking around for the return of... More

The food here is absolutely wonderful. It is a great Mexican restaurant and everyone is so very friendly, but it does not appear to be clean. Sadly, I have quit going to this restaurant.

We ordered the pico de gallo, and it was quite good...it had a lot of fresh avacado in it. My husband had carnitas and said they were tasty, and I had tamales (they were good, but I have had better). The really bad thing about the meal was the fact that our waitress took our orders, brought our food, and... More
