A good Mexican chain restaurant

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.

We had yet another excellent experience at La Carreta. I am hooked on the Shrimp Brochetas. Always enough to take home for an additional meal. Great food, great prices and most excellent service. The restaurant is always clean and inviting and the background music is not too loud!!
