The food was delicious and the service was fantastic. We arrived at 10:10pm and they close at 11. Totally did not expect them to be very welcoming but they were!!! You would have thought that their night was just getting started as nice as everyone was. Highly recommend!!

Great new building. Quick service. Friendly staff. Great value combinations. Salsa was not too spicy but asked for the hotter salsa and it was better. Saw table side fresh guacamole-outstanding, made me want to come back for that alone. Food was good-not too spicy but good basic mexican food.

The restaurant has moved about a 1/2 mile "down" the road, next door to Lowes. My family ate at the previous location earlier in the year and enjoyed it. The change in location increased the capacity of the restaurant. When we arrived (Sunday afternoon - 12:30), we had a 30 minute wait, but it was worth it. The service was... More

Food is typical for this area as far as Mexican cuisine is concerned. Sits in a steam well, served quick and hot. Not a bad thing, but just average. Great value for the buck, and that is why they are successful.

After hearing all the other college students talk about it I finally got the chance to go there. The outside of the building was rather plain but the inside was nice looking. The waiter was fluent in both Spanish and English and was efficient. The menu choices were numerous and there are really good non-spicy options whiich I need before... More

La Carreta is our favorite Mexican Restaurant in the Lynchburg Area. We both dine in and carry out regularly. At $4.00, their lunch specials are "truly" special! Lunch Special #1 is my absolute favorite: Taco, Guacamole Salad, Choice of Chile Relleno or Poblano Chile, and refried beans all for $4.00. They also have great Tamales and adding one to a... More

We used to live in Lynchburg. Now when we visit we always go to La Carreta first! They even remember us! Chips and salsa are fresh. Sweet tea is refreshing. The staff is awesome!

One can always count on the food at La Carreta to be delicious. However, sometimes the wait staff are not as friendly a they should be. I was once yelled at by a waiter who was trying to take my order (I didn't hear him ask for my selection, and so he proceded to yell at me to get my... More
