the service was great but the menu that i was given had a piece of a straw stuck to it along with dried pieces of food, they need to take the time and clean the menus on a daily basis...that was a turn off

I love La Carreta, the staff is friendly, the food is always great! Good salsa bar. This is where locals get good Mexican food.

Nothing at this restaurant impressed us. The guacamole tasted like it had filler in it, or something. The chips were nothing to write home about. Trimble's tacos were pretty good, but the enchiladas I had were a little bland.

I admit I'm a bit of a food snob, and that's an easy thing to be in Asheville with all the wonderful restaurants. We'd driven past La Carreta numerous times but never thought to stop there. We had a friend over, decided Mexican food would be fun, and went there on a whim. We were pleasantly surprised. The interior is... More

Service was good, but that was about all that was. My taquitos were so over cooked I had a hard time chewing them. My husband had enchiladas that were so cold they were pretty disgusting. My granddaughter had beef tacos that were very greasy and had a bad flavor. Overall it was not a good experience.

I recently took my family with me to Asheville on a work trip and after I was done for the day we set out to look for a local place to eat. The first place we stopped had a longer wait than we wanted with two small kids, so we kept driving. Finally we came across La Carreta. Walking in... More

Tried this place on June 11, 2016. We could tell by the smell when we walked in that the food would be good. Great atmosphere, great food, great service, homemade salsa. Very reasonably priced. Fed 4 people for 30 bucks. This would have cost me 50.00 at home. Will certainly stop here again next time we are in Asheville.

La Carreta is an average Mexican restaurant. Been there when food is very good and other times when food was very average. I personally like to eat at their Merrimon Avenue location rather than the Weaverville restaurant, but I would rate both location about the same. I have eaten at La Carreta on the Southside of town as well. If... More
