“Great Value, Good Food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

The menu offers so many items to choose from I don't know how the kitchen manages! We have eaten at La Carreta a couple of times during our over night stays on the way to South Carolina. The service is excellent and the quality of the food good. (Although I would stay away from the beef). The restaurant has a modest decor and is obviously targeting budget minded customers.
If you like mexican food then you will love this place. As a bonus, they have a happy hour from 4 to 7 Sundays through Thursdays.

“Ordinary”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Ordinary food, combined with a tired, worn decor don't make for much of a dining experience. Give it a miss.

As a local, I have eaten here many times. Love the salsa and chips! The staff move quickly to get orders and drinks. Good food at a decent price.

“STILL AS GREAT AS BEFORE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

It has been a few years since we've eaten at La Carreta. Our positive opinion of the place has not been diminished by time. We enjoyed a very tasty meal there during our recent stay. Both the food and service remain outstanding and we consider it a place that we would stop at whenever possible... which is not always the case with highway eateries. La Carreta is a very good dining option especially for travellers who do not want to eat at just restaurants run by the major chains.

“Great good, great service, reasonably priced.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

Great Mexican food that is consistent in tast each visit. Highly recommend tacos de carne asada. Azteca dip is the best dip you'll find anywhere.
