We had dinner here after a long day on the road. Our service was super; however, our food was just ok. We will give this restaurant a pass if visiting the area again.

We love this place. Service is always great. Food is delivered very quickly and it's always good. Prices are a tad higher than one or two other similar places but it's still worth it.

The food was relatively decent, but honestly was not well seasoned. It tasted like they only used one spice: pepper. Don't get me wrong, black pepper is great, but when it's the only seasoning in a dish that you can taste, it gets a little boring. The food I ordered (chicken quesadilla), the food my friend ordered (steak fajita), and... More

Wonderful traditional Mexican Fare - We eat here often. They have the best chicken tortilla soup I have ever had. Service is great too. We are picky about where we eat, so if we like it -it's good.

Best Mexican restaurant in the area. I have eaten at several of the locations and all are good. Service is good, even when they are busy. Margaritas are top notch!

La Carreta serves good Mexican food, and fast! Reasonable prices and large quantities are the standard. Several of their locations have great outdoor seating and large TV for diversion. Most of the dishes are large enough to split. A good choice for Mexican food in the Baton Rouge area.
