La Caretta's (in Denham Springs) has the best tortilla soup (with or without chicken). It has fresh avocados and cheese, with pico on the side. It is something I order every time I go. Typically the service is good; however if you sit outside during lunch, your waiter might not come as often as when you sit inside. This would... More

This is not your everyday Mexican restaurant. La Carreta is an upscale restaurant with great food and a great atmosphere. The selections of food and drink are numerous. The décor is beautiful and they offer outside dining. A friendly staff makes for a great dining experience.

Started visiting LaCaretta's when they opened in Baton Rouge and loved it. So, when they opened out here in Denham Springs, where we live, of course, they became THE placed to go. Great food, service and prices.

We eat here at least once a month. My favorite dish is shrimp bruchettas. It's a jalapeño with a jumbo shrimp and cheese wrapped in bacon and grilled. 8 of each. Now I'm hungry!

Most Mexican restaurants in the area are the usual Tex-Mex fare. La Carreta adds more South West to their Mex which makes for a nice change. The food is very good but sometimes they can be over whelmed by a packed restaurant and don't seem to do large groups well. We don't go during peak hours and never take large... More

The food is good and on Friday nights they have live music. The service is good and they don't mind splitting the bill for large groups.

This place has my favorite chips and salsa out of any Mexican restaurant I've been too - a nice, spicy kick and a dose of cilantro. Fajitas, quesadillas, and flautas are my favoirite entrees. Service is pleasant and quick. Pricing is suitable for large families, especially during lunch.
