This is a great place for reasonably priced Mexican food. If you go on a Saturday night, they have outdoor live music playing from 6:30-9:30...but come early because getting an outdoor table when the weather is nice is hard to do. Food is good, comes fairly quickly and has nice size portions... read more

This is mine and my husband's get away spot for date nights without the babe. The patio is gorgeous, we always find a seat outside. They usually have a cover band that plays classics on the weekend and we love them. It's such a relaxing place to be. We usually get tacos carnitas and the raspberry margaritas, both are always...

This is your typical tex-mex joint. What is good about La Carreta is that if you want to be seen, you will be. The downtown location is filled with locals and college students from the nearby university. La Carreta's central location provides a fun atmosphere where you will probably see someone you know. However, the food is mediocre at best... More

People complain about the price of food, but where else can you get authentic Mexican food, homemade salsa and guac, and drinks for under $35? I had at least 4 20oz dos equis, and the shrimp brochetta and dessert for $32.

Just ok.... It's not Superior Grill but isn't Taco Bell... However when you order Fajitas togo for your family and get zero tortillas. It's not fajitas. The chicken and shrimp were decent but the beef used for the fajitas was wrong in many ways. It's substandard, incorrectly cooked, and presented. Appeared to have been sitting in a warmer for quite... More

Second time here, about a month between visits. I really like that it's really open. Yes, they probably could put a few more tables inside, but they don't so huge cool points for that. Classic Mexican food fare, but consistently very fast, very good, and the staff members are very good & professional. We'll be back again next month, and... More

This La Carreta is right in dowtown Hammond next to the RR tracks. We were headed out of town on last Friday evening and needed to stop for dinner. This hit the spot. For three of us, we had an Avocado chicken salad and a spinach chicken salad that were very good, and our daughter had the 2 soft taco... More
