The staff and food are great at this restaurant. The menu serves a well rounded variety of drinks and food. They are capable of seating large groups easily. Don't forget to order the cheese dip on the side!

Recommended by the front desk in our hotel. Place was busy, obviously very popular and apparently has been there fo 20 years! Food was good, had the chimichangas with rice and beans, generous serving of guacamole too. Yum

We have a vacation home in Summersville, but live full time in Del Mar, California. So naturally we're kind of Mexican food snobs (not really, but I'm sure that's what everyone assumes). We eat here every time we come out and it has always, always been a pleasant experience! The place is not fancy, which is fine. The food is... More

La Caretta came to Summersville when I was a teenager & I've been a loyal customer since I first tried it back in 1997. I'm now 34 years old and still love their food, eat there on a regular basis, and have a very good relationship with the staff. I am a server & I understand how hard it can... More

Very good food. The wait staff was very pleasant. They give you salsa and chips to start off which was very good. Clean establishment.

I was looking forward to a great authentic Mexican fajita meal with some spice to find a rather bland meal of chicken, onions and peppers. It was nice but nothing to write home about. Maybe I missed something!!

We showed up with a party of 10. Only waited 10 minutes and the place was packed so kudos for putting several tables together for us. We kept the servers hopping but the two guys never let us down. Great service, great food, excellent margaritas and very large beers. Gotta check this place out

Summersville is a convenient spot to stop overnight for Snowbirds heading south and back north. There are the usual fast-food restaurants that can serve you anywhere, but I recommend this restaurant. The atmosphere is sparse, but the food is delicious and well-priced and the service friendly. All you really need when you are on the road again first thing in... More

I'm a huge fan of La Carreta. I live pretty close so I go here a lot. The food is great (I've never had a bad experience) and the service is very quick!

The food and service are always very good! My kids enjoy the chicken soft tacos and I enjoy their steak dinners.
