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

I almost did not eat at this restaurant but my niece had her heart set on it. The staff was friendly but not professional. My family and I visited at dinner time and it was extremely busy. The floor and bathrooms were dirty. The food was good and arrived quickly after ordering.

While traveling through West Virgina, we were looking for a place to eat that wasn't fast food and wouldn't take a lot of time out of our driving. We stopped in Summersville and noticed La Carreta in a plaza. We figured we would give it a try after reading the one review on here. We definitely weren't disappointed. Service was... More
