Service was terrible - waitress dropped the salad dressing on my husband and wasn't too apologetic. Chicken with rice and onions was way too salty. The kids hamburger came as a cheeseburger and the waitress argued when... More

If you're visiting Miami and looking for good local food come to La Carreta. They have good breakfast and dinner. Try the Cuban coffee, croquetas and Cuban toast to get the Miami locals experience! Just make sure you drink that Cuban coffee early in the morning because you will be wired for the next couple hours.

We ordered the oxtail stew, fried pork chunks, tostones filled with shrimp, and the Marquita's . Wow this place is great every time we come. It is a sure bet for great Cuban food!
