This is the best Mexican food around Summersville. We are never disappointed when we go here and we go quite often. The staff is so friendly and the service speedy. The food is delicious and can't be beat! They also have the BEST sweet tea! I highly suggest you try it!

We tried this after researching non-chain restaurants en route to the beach. Service was prompt and they kept our chips and salsa refilled. It was a little dated, but the food was okay. For a family of four - the bill was under $30 including tip - which was great. Food was average Mexican - nothing spectacular, but good for... More

We ate here last week on our trip down to SC. It is conveniently located across the plaza parking lot from the La Quinta Inn where we stayed (awesome!!!). That's about the only positive. Not sure why all the great reviews. Interior seemed dirty and dingy, definitely outdated. However, I can easily overlook an outdated decor if a restaurant is... More

During a weekend stay in Summersville, my husband and I ate at the La Carreta. It is an ordinary Mexican restaurant with little more to offer than the regular Mexican meals. There's plenty of staff that mostly congregate in the back laughing and talking. We were seated by a messy table that looked like the staff sit there during slow... More

Even with 8 adults, sangria, and beer, our pre-tip bill was <$100! No one walked away hungry, either.

The menu offers so many items to choose from I don't know how the kitchen manages! We have eaten at La Carreta a couple of times during our over night stays on the way to South Carolina. The service is excellent and the quality of the food good. (Although I would stay away from the beef). The restaurant has a... More

Ordinary food, combined with a tired, worn decor don't make for much of a dining experience. Give it a miss.

As a local, I have eaten here many times. Love the salsa and chips! The staff move quickly to get orders and drinks. Good food at a decent price.

It has been a few years since we've eaten at La Carreta. Our positive opinion of the place has not been diminished by time. We enjoyed a very tasty meal there during our recent stay. Both the food and service remain outstanding and we consider it a place that we would stop at whenever possible... which is not always the... More

Great Mexican food that is consistent in tast each visit. Highly recommend tacos de carne asada. Azteca dip is the best dip you'll find anywhere.
