I ordered a special that included a mushroom quesadilla, chicken enchilada and chicken burrito. Everything was delicious. Prices were great, portions large, staff reasonably attentive despite being busy. If I ever am in Summersville again, I will definitely stop here.

We were overnighting on our northbound journey. We were hungry and tired. I am not sure whether this may have had an influence on my critique. The food was plentiful and the choice wide. The food was somewhat bland. The staff were friendly and attentive. Would try another restaurant on our next stop.

Food was plentiful, flavorful and reasonably priced. Lot of families and local customers was quite evident. Ate here once before and will eat here again.

Great food and great service. Our favorite local restaurant. Eat there or take out at least a couple times a month. Highly recommend. Try fajita texacano nachos for evening meal. Make your tongue slap your brains out.

After reading the reviews, I was so disappointed. It is common to pre-cook food and bring it to temperature when ordered. If an oven is used, the texture is not affected unless it is there too long and dries out. When microwaved, peppers weep and ruin any coating. The flavor is lost. Why do that? Drop taquitos into old oil... More

The food and service were great. We had vegetarian dishes which were wonderfully prepared and were delicious. This is a family-owned restaurant and the service was wonderful; the price was very reasonable.

OK, maybe shocked is too strong of a description. But call me very surprised. Very surprised that a Mexican place as good as this one exists in a hick town like Summersville,WV (which is, let's face it, a stop-over place). La Carreta is a great alternative to the fast food/chain places in town. It was packed on the Friday we... More

The food is very good and fresh, nice service reasonable price as well and outdoor eating area for the warmer days is a plus . Inside there's some room for improvement maybe better decor and lighting but not too bad after all.
