I love La Carreta! not a "new and trendy" place but the food is to die for and service is great. Been there a few time and will continue to go. Try pupusas, avocado salad and plantains with cream :)

I dined at La Carreta on a Saturday night. It's a simple place, with two dining rooms in all. I had the combo taco. That includes a crunchy beef taco, a pupusa and fried yuca. The taco filled with well seasoned beef, was very delicious,...More
