Enjoyed dinner on my way home from visiting family in Delaware. We were seated immediately and chips and salsa came soon after. The menu was typical for a Mexican restaurant and the prices reasonable. The server was attentive, but not overly so. It was an enjoyable place to unwind after a long drive. I would definitely visit again.

We stopped here on our way to New York City. It looks like your typical Mexican restaurant, but the quality and flavor of the food was amazing! We ordered the steak fajitas and they were as good as any that I have ever eaten. We later stopped at a restaurant in West Virginia by the same name and I have... More

This was our first visit to La Carreta. The portions were big and tasty. Our meals arrived quickly. I ordered the carne asada which was more than I could eat, but delicious. My husband had the chicken fajita burrito. It was so full and had a sauce on it so he was disappointed that he couldn't pick it up to... More

We ordered the enchiladas supremos and steak and shrimp. Everything tasted great. We're lucky to get the same waiter and he always does an awesome job.

I love going to this place. They have some good Chicken Nachos. They give you enough to fill you up. So if you want some good Mexican food this is the place.

This is the only restaurant that makes chili rellenos, the way I like them. Instead of the whole pepper being deep fried, the put slices of it under flavorful meat and top it with melted cheese. An absolute, "Must Try".

We had 5 people in our party including kids. There was a hamburger ordered. Strangely they had no regular mustard as a topping. Also, at most Mexican restaurants rice and beans is pretty standard with most entrees. Not this place. I had to order rice on the side. Other than that, our waiter was pleasant and the food tasted good.... More

Closest non fast food restaurant to the Hampton Inn. Food and service were good. The fried ice cream was a popular choice for our children.
