Very good meal at a very popular restaurant

The restaurant is part of a small family chain that has a menu that looks similar to a lot of formula mexican restaurants. The food is a lot better than most mexican chains, and the service is also really good. My dining companion had chicken fajitas and I had chile rellano and tacos, and all... read more

We have had two meals here in the past week. We are visiting New Hampshire and heavy workload results in our dining out. Our first visit to this venue was good enough to cause a return. The food is freshly prepared and served piping hot at your table. [warning: The beer menu is limited to mostly bad choices.] Unfortunately, our... More

My wife and I stopped to have a late night snack. We started with chips and salsa with a side order of cheese dip. The dip is nothing special but for some reason I order it every time I eat here. I am hooked on it. I ordered three crispy beef tacos and my wife order a beef burrito, beef... More

The last time my wife and i were in Manchester we stopped and had dinner at La Carreta. The interior is very nice, quiet and the staff are very friendly. The food is also very good and the drink list is expansive and will more than likely have something for everyone on it. I highly recommend this place!!

Food not so great now, IMO Every restaurant has great, good, fair and disappointing days. However, been there since my last review. Not great. Service is not winning points either.

Hubby and I decided to go out for a quick supper as he was craving Mexican food and we find this the most authentic place for dinner (lunch is a little place downtown Manchester). Our tortilla snacks were on our table even as we were sitting. We love the service here. Lots of young ladies working and I enjoyed that... More

I was blown away by the authentic Mexican cuisine in La Carreta. My partner loves this restaurant so it was an obvious choice when we visited from London over Thanksgiving. Great service and great margarita's compliment their excellent menu. Definitely visit!!!

The quality and consistency, and service are always good at the Manchester location. This chain is hard to classify for me but we pick it over Shorty's most of the time. The folks are very kind, and the salsa is excellent. Give them a try.
