Always good!

My family and I come here regularly for our "taco trips." The price is decent, and their food is always good- margaritas too! The atmosphere is a little dull.

The food is cheap, well reasonably priced!!! Great atmosphere and the best thing, and most common to get, is the Chicken/Steak/Shrimp Talavera! For an appetizer you get authentic Mexican tortilla chips, but you HAVE to ask for the queso!

Have visited this Laca a few times in the past and it has always been a good experience!! I ordered my usual 2 beef burrito and 1 taco and they were both delicious this time also!! Everyone in our party of 5 had no complaints and the waiters took care of all our needs. Makes it easy to recommend visiting... More

They have some of the tastiest Mexican food I've had in awhile. You can't beat the prices they have. The white cheese they have there is to die for.

When the La Carreta's were about the only Mexican restaurants in town, they were fine for an occasional speedy meal. The service has always been excellent. THe staff is pleasant. The food is just so-so. The chips seem like they come out of a bag, and I'm pretty sure the salsa sauce comes in cans. It certainly isn't fresh prepared.... More

I had the best shrimp dinner that I've had in a Mexican restaurant! Excellent flavor. The salsa was spicy and one of the best with our chips

The prices are so so reasonable. No surprise itmis a college student favorzite. We were at the one over by Bojangles. Not sure it makes a difference. The decorations... More

While visiting a friend in Lynchburg, we decided to have lunch at La Carreta. Even though it was very busy, we were greeted warmly and seated quickly. The chips were light and crunchy. Our server brought us 2 kinds of sauces--salsa and a creamy white dip--both delicious and addicting! We both ordered the chimi lunch plate and were not disappointed.... More
