“Let the Fiesta begin.”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

We LOVE La Ca! Every location has friendly staff, good food, and reasonable prices. What's not to love! This is a regular stop for everyone in our neighborhood. Table for 12 please.

“Terrible Excuse for Food”
Reviewed September 18, 2011

To the casual observer, one might think that La Carreta is just a terrible stab at Mexican food. But upon closer examination, one can see that this is terrible food, regardless of intended cuisine.
Salsa tastes like tomato paste.
Nothing is spicy, even when you beg for it.
The food... it's just... terrible, edible at best.
Service is sketchy.
There are multiple locations of this chain- a true testament to the unsophisticated palate of the average Lynchburg native.
