“really tasty chicken”
Review of La Carreta

La Carreta
Ranked #78 of 306 Restaurants in Guanajuato
Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 February 2016

We remembered eating at La Carreta a few years ago when we walked past it last month. It was easy to remember the place since the front entry is dominated by several
chickens being grilled over wood and on spits. The aroma is great and we had to go in again when we remembered how good it was.
The tables are like picnic tables and it is larger inside than you might think if you did not enter. A nice woman greeted us and showed us a menu. Despite the chickens we had already seen we were amazed at the number of other items you could order. We ordered a chicken to be cut up for the three of us. A few minutes later a large platter of chicken was brought to the table along with plates of rice and salad plus bread along with our drinks that had been brought earlier.
Once again the chicken was so delicious. If the restaurant were to be rated solely on the chicken it would deserve the highest rating but the place is a bit dark and the appearance of the place is minimal.
La Carreta is on the main drag in downtown Guanajuato and with those chickens being grilled front and center it is easy to find. And as an earlier poster has said, KFC is right across the street. There were not many eating there but lots of people eating at La Carreta which was also very affordable. If you like chicken you will love this place.

They also do take out...

Walked by during a walking tour, and our guide suggested we try them out if we like chicken. The Irony is that it is across the street from a KFC.

Do you like yummy, crispy chicken? Then eat here... seriously...
