Great Dining Experience

La Carreta's is a wonderful place to get authentic Mexican food. They have a courteous wait staff and the atmosphere is quite pleasant for a great dining experience.

Very good place to eat! I usually don't write reviews but I thought I would since it was so good. I got the shredded chicken chimichanga and a cup of tortilla soup. Delicious! If you are in Baton Rouge and want something Mexican it's a must try!

The nachos on the appetizer menu are killer and feed at least 2 people, that makes it a great value. But the top shelf margaritas are to die for. I could drink them all night

This is our weekly stop for great tacos. Price is right and food is great! Eat here more than once per week and have never had a bad experience.

3rd time eating at this location. Have had great food and service every time. They were most helpful when I asked to change the meat in a dish. And kept my glass of ice tea full, a must for me!
