“Cheap and Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Even with 8 adults, sangria, and beer, our pre-tip bill was <$100! No one walked away hungry, either.

“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.
