Probably the best in South Asheville

I am from Texas and there is no where in Asheville to get decent TexMex. However I do like this restaurant. They make their own chips in house - hand cutting the tortillas. The chilaquiles are very good with chicken. Slight bit of cinnamon make it special. The house salsa that comes to the... read more

We stopped by for lunch after church and was immediately seated by the hostess. Service began right away but apparently there was a shift in waiters mid meal. Not a big problem but change could have been introduced to keep from wondering who we should ask for help. The meals were served fast and were very good.

This may be the worst Mexican food my husband and I have ever eaten! We went for dinner and both of our dishes were completely tasteless. We've been to both this one and the one on Merrimon, and it wasn't much better. Needless to say, we will not be back to either one.

This place is not near Merrimon Ave in Asheville. Weaver Ave is in Weaverville. The phone # listed does not work.

Went for lunch on Sunday afternoon, they had lunch specials on the weekend. The food was good, but nothing special. The prices were low. Service was a little slow

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.
