Good stop just off the Interstate

We always try to find something local rather than a national chain while traveling. The food was tasty, fresh, and served quickly and in a friendly manner. Vegetarian and carnivore options were plentiful.

After traveling for 12 hours we ordered a to-go meal. Everything was warm and just as we had ordered. Great Mexican as always.

Service is friendly and the food is never bad. For the price, this is a great place to get your Mexican food fix.

My husband and I was in Tennessee over Thanksgiving, visiting family. We love Hispanic food so we thought we would try this place out. We are from Florida so we have visited a lot of Hispanic restaurants but this is by far the best Mexican food I have ever eaten. The Texas margaritas are a must. We had the fajitas... More

My wife and I went here to eat. Ordered our meal and was very disappointed in the flavor and quality of food. No plans on going back.

Whether you dine-in or take-out, the staff at La Carreta are great. Delicious Mexican food and very affordable. We get take-out from here nearly once a week because we enjoy it so much.

We only ate here once. We were staying overnight on a longer trip. The server was attentive without being intrusive. The food was quite good, not greasy at all, which some Mexican restaurant food tends to be. If I lived here, I'd go back.

We are regulars here in our hometown. My son wanted visit after church tonight for his birthday. There were 4 adults and 3 children. Service was very slow tonight. The food was good. Same as usual. Normally after ordering, it doesn't take long for food to get to our table. So not too impressed with that.
