I went to dinner with my family, to eat Cuban sandwiches, which in my country Venezuela They are called "cubanitos", The attention was cordial and fast, the atmosphere calm and familiar (also was Thursday) Good proportions and good quality in preparation and ingredients. Apart from the Cuban sandwich we ordered natural juices and milkshakes were also very good.

I'm Dominican so our palates and seasonings are very similar. Great food at good prices. Service needs some work though. Get the fried pork chunks with fried green plantain.

La Caretta was our first acquaintance with Cuban cuisine. We went to this restaurant as a part of our Miami city tour lunch. So we were offered a pre designed menu which consisted on Cuban sandwhich. They also served red kidney beans with rice and a sweet-sour guava pastry. There was a delicious banana chip platter on each table. Very... More

This place is a true Cuban landmark. The food is good and prices are affordable. Their expresso coffee is great. Try the vaca frita or the grilled chicken breast steak. Delish.

La Carreta shares owner with Versailles, Miami's longest running (Cuban) restaurant, which opened in 1971.... Not as big and flashy as its 'cousin' but consist and great value for lunch or anytime

We so enjoyed meeting our friends at La Carreta! We met at 6pm and by the time we left, the line was out the door. Our delicious dishes included shredded pork, rice & plantains...too full for dessert. Many locations throughout Miami so be sure to visit for Cuban Culinary Cuisine!
