Excellent atmosphere, food and service. I will stop there next time I am in the area. The guacamole was fresh, and the nachos were perfect. Festive atmosphere with live music.

Nothing like dealing with a rude waitress (Erika) and manager at La Carreta Hammond! Informed the waitress(after she decided to stop texting someone by the hostess stand) that my quesadilla didn't taste right, her response was, "oh" and walked away.

For lunch. I was impressed. The food is authentic as the owner is Mexican. I had the tacos of barbacoa, carne asada and steak. They were very tasty. I must say that when it comes to Mexican restaurants I'm picky and I found this food to be up there in taste with other authentic restaurants. If you want real Mexican... More

LOVE this place. Food is always fresh and delicious. Margaritas aren't my favorite but aren't bad. Love the chile rellenos. Hard to find most places

Very good food. A little too noisy when crowded. Feel a little rushed by waiters to finish eating, but not always. Good place to relax after work with just drinks at the outside tables in good weather..

This restaurant is a good and dependable standard. Always good to arrive prior to or just after lunch on weekends, otherwise can crowded. Great nighttime location to dine with friends.
