Their grilled meat dishes are wonderful and their spices and presentation are awesome. Veracruz plate was spectacular. The grilled chicken salad was disappointing. I'd stick with their fajitas and specialties, will not disappoint! (This was at their new Merrimon location, a welcome addition to the neighborhood.)

We tried the new location on Merrimon and I guess it met our expectations -- dozens of combos, reasonable prices and OK food. The chips and salsa were just fair. Service was friendly and swift.

LaCarreta has plenty of parking and dining space, easy to access from highway; we were there about 5:30 and there were only a couple of other diners. Food was acceptable however the ingredients did not seem real fresh and the chips had a packaged taste, not as crispy as we like. The portions are nice, prices reasonable, enjoyable Marguarita.

We were promptly greeted and seated. The waiter, I believe, Jesus, was excellent. Their food has always been good there and we go back every year when we are in Asheville. This visit was even better when I ordered a Pollo Sinaloa. I appreciate that they have lunch and dinner sizes for the meals, I was able to finish the... More

We were trying to find another Mexican restaurant after white water rafting and happened upon La Carreta. They have two locations, 1916 Hendersonville Rd., Asheville, NC and 61B Weaver Boulevard, Weaverville, NC. We had a party of seven and everyone loved their meals. The service was very attentive, the prices reasonable, and the food was authentic. We love Mexican food... More

As a Texan who has eaten lots of tex-mex and mexican food for decades, I wouldn't have thought I would travel to North Carolina and find food this good and authentic. Service is fast and reliable. My wife had the chile relleno, and I had the grilled shrimp. Both were delicious. We loved the place.

Based on reviews from TripAdvisor I decided to visit this restaurant (Herdersonville Rd location). I was looking for authentic Mexican food...and oh boy! I found it! This place is clean, nicely sized and well decorated with a Mexican theme. The waiters are friendly and were there to help out for every need I had. It was very pleasant. The background... More

We love Mexican dishes and really enjoyed La Carreta's this evening, with 2 other couples. There were suttle flavours enhancing the TOSTAGUAC, CHILE RELLENO, TACO on my plate, like the extra touch of lime (I think it was) in the guacamole. Just that little bit tastier... Mmmmm. We don't go back to many restaurants a 2nd time but will look... More
