One of my new favorite places. We didn't go due to the location but the inside is quite nice and a very friendly owner.
From going multiple times- you need to try the chicken soup, guacamole, cheese dip and chips, and tacos.
Margaritas are made fresh without any mixers which is refreshing. I also enjoyed the tortas with the egg on top.
Look forward to going back soon!

This is a local Latino store and Restaurant we frequent because it is not a Mexican restaurant. La Carreta is owned and operated by a family from Colombia. They do offer a few Mexican menu items like tacos, tamales and burritos, but the menu is varied and has quite a few Colombian and Central American choices. The Guatemalan tamales are as close to authentic as we have found anywhere (be aware: authentic means you will find bones in your tamales and if you don't like the taste of olives and raisins together, this may not be the dish for you.) The Colombian tamales are very large and very good. The Tostones with Guacamole (not Mexican style and not spicy but very tasty) are fabulous and I am usually satisfied with my portion that and a cup of black bean soup. Their Chicken soup is the best in the area. The prices are very reasonable considering you are getting real food for your money and not prepackaged food products preserved with tons of MSG.

Cute, casual decor and fantastic food. The plantains and guacamole are not to be missed. The price is amazing for the quality and quantity of food. Highly recommend for Latin food.

We enjoyed lunch at La Carreta and found the food and service to be excellent. This is not a fancy place, but it is very clean and the food is freshly prepared. The cuisine is part Colombian and part Mexican. Plates are served with sides of slaw, rice and black beans. The tacos are great as was the quesadilla. They also offer tortas (sandwiches) with several selections of meat. Overall, we were very pleased with our meal and the prices are very reasonable considering the freshness and quality of food served.
