“Surprisingly Good Mexican”

La Carreta Mexican Restaurant
Restaurant details
Reviewed October 25, 2013

As a Southern Californian, transplanted to Virginia, having tried many so-called Mexican places, I thought I was in a wilderness insofar as Mexican food, but this place is my new home for East LA style Mexican. The dishes are authentic, and the seasoning, altho tempered a bit for the local taste, is satisfactory. There's Tabasco on the table. There's a broad menu to choose from, not just tacos and burritos. I had some excellent fish tacos and my companions who all ordered something different, and who were also California transplants were very satisfied. Service is very good, and there is a range of Mexican and domestic beer. Parking in a private lot. Prices are average for the area and as compared to other Mexican places.

My wife was coming to this place when she was a student in Lynchburg more than 15 years ago. Fast, inexpensive, great taste. Different margaritas taste differently depending on who is making them, so sometimes you have to explain how you'd like yours made. They only have SOME of the different Lynchburg area colleges displayed in the front foyer...that problem needs to be fixed to include ALL of them.
