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.

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

We have been to the restaurant in South Asheville several times and now their new one in Weaverville. Always tasty and very clean. Excellent service. Margaritas are also a treat. If you split a 27 ouncer you'll leave happy!

We found the one in Asheville a couple of years ago and fell in love. So when we saw that one was coming to Weaverville we were so excited. If we dine in anywhere in weaverville now...it's there. Staff is friendly and food is always consistent and worth coming back for!
