There are at least 2 in Lynchburg, and the one near Lowe's is by far nicer. The owner actually came out to check on us and clearly cared about how his service was. The food was great too, but their salsa needs work.

If you like stale chips and ketchup "salsa", chicken stew as fajitas, and bean soup as refried beans - you'll love it! If you want flavor and real Mexican food - drive to Roanoke and eat at Abuelo's.

The food here is not good. Stale tortillas, mushy tomato paste salsa, flavorless entrees, lethargic staff. There are several locations of this chain in the Lynchburg area, and each one competes with the others to be the most awful. Yuck!

There are several restaurants in this chain and there are incredibly consistent. I have eaten at every one of them and have yet to have a bad experience. The food, prices and service are excellent. Not to mention the portion size is generous. As most Mexican restaurants you start with chips and salsa, the chips are not greasy and the... More

Great food and service. Served fast and hot. The food is fantastic. Sometimes the communication gets a little tricky but it always works out.

This is my favorite Mexican place. Always very tasty, consistent, fast, and a good value. Lots of fun for a group. I have never had anything I didn't like. Also good for takeout, now that there are several locations.

The restaurant was crowded and noisy. The wait staff was definitely in a hurry. But none of that mattered because the food was SO good!!! All of us in the party ordered something different, and each of us was overwhelmed at the outstanding flavor and texture. I already wish I could eat there again!

We got take out here on a recent trip. We got fajitas for two and it was enough for about 6 people. They tasted good. Needed more tortillas. Not bad.

I took my family to eat at this little restaurant last Sunday after church. I was pleasantly surprised by the top-notch service and the quality of the food. It was fast, good, and did not break our budget. It will definately be on our list of restaurants from now on.

Great margarita specials. All of food was great all were prepared as expected and served quickly. The hardest part was selecting which La Carreta to go to as there are several in the area.
