Miami New Times' Description

La Carreta doesn't serve the most gourmet Cuban food in Miami, but with multiple locations, it's a convenient place to get the classics. The Little Havana location is a stand-alone building guarded by a colorful rooster statue. The menu is an extensive list of Cuban dishes such as ropa vieja ($8.95), picadillo ($6.50), and palomilla ($10.25), plus some American - chicken wings and spare ribs in barbecue sauce - and Spanish-inspired fare. Stick to the Cuban basics. Each day, the restaurant offers a selection of three or four specials, and weekday lunch deals include breaded pork chop, shrimp creole, and fried grouper for less than $10. La Carreta is not only a fast, inexpensive lunch or dinner spot but also a good breakfast or late-night snack stop (it's open till 5 a.m. on weekends) because of its prime Eighth Street location and to-go Cuban cafecito.

    When in town this is a must stop! The coffee and Cuban pastries are unbelievable.

    Skip the churros, they are bad - and hot chocolate is Nesquick ... Eww

    Try the Yuca Fries With Secret Cilantro Sauce - Love it. But I shouldn't have it after this after So much food yesterday (via @Foodspotting)

    Get the vaca frita or ropa vieja meal. Chicken noodle soup is great as is the frijoles negroes. Don't forget the buttered bread!

    A morning stop for coffee will get you quick update on sports and politics from the everyday familiar faces. No need for a newspaper.
