Never Disappointed

If you're looking for great Mexican dishes, La Carreta is the place. We've tried many of their menu items and have never been disappointed. The restaurant is clean and inviting and the service is top notch!!!

I've been a regular customer for several years and I'd love to say this place is amazing; however, from my experience, it's hit and miss. There are times that the food is outstanding but then the next time it may not be seasoned at all, or in the case of my last visit, seasoned way too much (salty). The atmosphere... More

The chicken quesadilla had a very generous amount of chicken and cheese. The enchilada, rice and beans were all good. Service was prompt and food served timely. It was a way better option than stopping for fast food while on the road. I would recommend this restaurant and would likely stop in again on my way through town

We have been going to La Carreta on Government in BR for years and greatly enjoyed it, but were so pleased to have one nearer to home. We go quite often for lunch, occasionally for dinner. Service is good; often a manager will come by the table. Food is wonderful. The queso is out of this world. My husband often... More

My favorite Mexican restaurant in Denham Springs, it's not the best but it's the best in Denham. Has always been consistent for me.

3-7-2015. We last visited La Carreta about 18+ months ago; food portions and quality were awful. Swore we would never go back. Well, as things turned out, we went back to give them another try because their restaurant in Baton Rouge is very good. Glad we did. I ordered the Chicken Fahitas. Plenty of food on the plate. Chicken strips... More
