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.

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!

We spent a few nights in Lynchburg while attending a Christian music festival at Liberty Univ. over New Years. We read good reviews of this restaurant and the hotel desk staff recommended it. We were very pleased, friendly waiters, fast service and great food. They even have a number of dishes that put a "twist" on some old favorites. My... More

We prefer the La Carreta locations in Madison Heights...I would only avoid the ones on Wards Road but the rest of them are always great with wonderful service.
