Excellent Colombian food. Not as good as my Colombian wife's cooking but best outside of my house. Bande Paisa for excellent example of Colombian cuisine.

A coworker and myself eat here every week or two now for lunch. Always tasty. If you're not sure what to get, just go with the daily special.

My daughter and I returned to La Carreta for dinner last evening. It was exceptionally good - as we expected. We began by sharing an order of Tostones with Guacamole - delicious as always. My daughter had a bowl of the Colombian soup, again. I chose Quesadilla Pastor for the first time. Our dessert was Mango Flan. The food was... More

The moment I walked in, I knew I wasn't in your typical "Mexican" American restaurant. Comfortable seating with lots of room between you and other customers, A menu that is not usual in that there are dishes from different south of the border countries; well prepared and tasty; Informal waiters conversant in English and Spanisj; and all very affordable. A... More

My coworker who is Columbian told me about this place and ever since it has been one of our regular lunch choices! Everything I ever gotten has been very good. The brisket (Barbacoa) Quesadillas are awesome as well as the grilled chicken ones!

I grew up in Tampa and have high standards for Latin cuisine. The food here was really good, along with a tasty Texas Margarita (at $9 a bit pricey though). The guava flan for dessert was exceptional. Out server could not have been nicer and more welcoming. Cute little grocery store attached to the restaurant.

Very authentic Columbian food. I had the Bandeja Paisa. Great mix of food. The meats were very flavorful and the fried egg on top of the rice was awesome. Love this place. We need to go back so I can try more food. The wife had a chicken burrito and guava flan. Our waitress Salma was very nice and helpful.... More

I have lived here 20 years and only found this little gem tonight! Loved it. This is definitely our New Mexican restaurant of choice. The others don't compare.

We have been to La Carreta several times now as my husband and I love their chicken soup; a large bowl of tasty chicken broth with plenty of chicken and cilantro. Very comforting and always good. I have ordered Colombian tamales twice and both times it was obvious that they were out of the freezer (not a bad thing as... More

Try the tostones, empanadas, and home made tamales... Pulled pork or chicken - reminds me of what Mimi used to cook, try a side of Yucca or Corn and a cool glass of Guava juice 🌞
