“Average Mexican Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

During a weekend stay in Summersville, my husband and I ate at the La Carreta. It is an ordinary Mexican restaurant with little more to offer than the regular Mexican meals. There's plenty of staff that mostly congregate in the back laughing and talking. We were seated by a messy table that looked like the staff sit there during slow periods. The table was never cleared while we were there. The decor was old and worn. My husband's dish was served in a skillet and was swimming in grease. I ordered a side order of mushrooms. When the mushroom came, they were almost black.

La Carreta is one of those restaurants where you eat there today in passing a town, and tomorrow it will be forgotten. The restaurant doesn't make for much of a dining experience.

“Cheap and Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Even with 8 adults, sangria, and beer, our pre-tip bill was <$100! No one walked away hungry, either.

“Great Value, Good Food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

The menu offers so many items to choose from I don't know how the kitchen manages! We have eaten at La Carreta a couple of times during our over night stays on the way to South Carolina. The service is excellent and the quality of the food good. (Although I would stay away from the beef). The restaurant has a modest decor and is obviously targeting budget minded customers.
If you like mexican food then you will love this place. As a bonus, they have a happy hour from 4 to 7 Sundays through Thursdays.

“Ordinary”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Ordinary food, combined with a tired, worn decor don't make for much of a dining experience. Give it a miss.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

As a local, I have eaten here many times. Love the salsa and chips! The staff move quickly to get orders and drinks. Good food at a decent price.
