The menu was similar to menus in most Mexican restaurants, and the food was good. I was not impressed with our server, though, as he was not helpful and very indifferent when he waited on us.

The best meal by far that I had in Summersville. Very reasonable prices. I got a taco salad. It was so huge that I couldn't even eat it all and it was only around $7.

We found La Carreta while stopping overnight on a road trip (highly recommend the Country Inn & Suites across the parking lot!), and had a wonderfully memorable meal there. Our waiter was friendly, attentive, and made great suggestions. The food was delicious and served promptly. The place was full of locals in there which is always a good sign. We... More

My husband, son, and I always go to this Mexican restaurant. Their food is the best Mexican cuisine we've found in WV. We always get the cheese sauce with our chips, instead of the salsa. It is amazing. They have plenty of authentic dishes to choose from, which we've tried most of them. But, my favorite is the super fajita... More

It’s not about the decor, it’s the food. The menu promotes “Authentic Mexican Food” and they certainly don’t miss the mark. We were passing through Summersville, staying at the Hampton Inn, which did not even promote this fabulous food haven in the in room album. The Carreta is just a few blocks down the road. Upon entry the decor does... More

Amid all the chain restaurants in Summersville, this was a treat. Great selection and generous portions. Margarita hit the spot.

For lunch, our party of three was seated right away, and we immediately received chips and salsa. We placed our order and were served very promptly. We were out of this restaurant in 30 minutes. The food was tasty. The drinks were served in very large glasses. I usually like a lot of refills, but I only needed one here.... More
