“A Slce of the Tropics”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

The food is very good. But the service is excellent. The atmosphere was quiet; I was able to enjoy conversation with my meal. Definitely stop by if you are in the area.

“Vaca Frita, MMMMM”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Their vaca frita is delicious. They are also open late, so it's nice to be able to call and order something after most restaurants have closed. We have had other dishes and aren't really in love with them.

“Great Cuban food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

There are lots of Cuban restaurants in Miami. This one is good for west Miami. We stopped here and bought some food to take with us to Everglades National Park. Great sandwiches and the beans and plantains were fantastic. Try it!

“First but not last visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

Always wanted to try LaCarreta, and we weren't disappointed. Nicely appointed place, bustling with families on a Sunday evening at 9 pm. The service was quick and friendly, the portions plentiful, the food tasty and a great value. Three adults ate for $40 with sharing two entrees and ceviche as an appetizer, with Cuban coffee to top it off. We will be back!
