I feel like I am in Mexico whenever I am at LaCarreta. I hear the one in Nashua is better but I think they are both nice. Food is fresh and authenic.

Recently at a seminar at the Courtyard, a short walk over to La Carreta for lunch proved to be a great choice, the two of us had the lunch special, relleno, and taco with avacado salad, served quickly and endless chips and salsa, the meal was nicely presented and did not disappoint. Would definitly return

We had dinner at the Manchester location over the weekend. I have dined at the Nashua location many times, and it's always very good. Between nachos, fajitas and taco salads, everyone said their meal was very good. The food is always fresh, cooked nicely, and delivered pretty quick. This location was as busy as the Nashua location, but we did... More

The forecast called for 4 to 8 inches of snow, but by the time we headed out to dinner we had more than a foot. Our hotel restaurant was jammed with stranded travelers who had their flights cancelled, so we left the hotel in search of a restaurant that everyone could enjoy. The sign on the door of La Caretta... More

My wife and I have eaten there several times. The last time we ate there, my wife got sick shortly after eating her usual stuffed peppers dinner. When I called the La Carreta I was told that someone would contact me. The next day someone called to say that it could not have been their fault because food poisoning took... More

This restaurant was recommended by a co-worker while we were in town visiting. The atmosphere was nice and the service was great even though they were very busy on a Friday night. Parking was adequate and we were seated within 10 minutes of arriving. The menu is extensive with many combinations to choose from and the prices are very reasonable.... More

There were 3 adult and four children in our party. Two members of our party have severe food allergies. When my sister ordered her meal she explained that she had a beef and a tomato allergy. The server explained that all the meats were cooked in Salsa (thus tomato). She explained that they could make her chicken chimichanga with grilled... More

Having been stationed in South Texas while in the Air Force, I developed a fondness for really good Mexican food. With this one exception (thank God!), you can't find it in NH. La Carreta brings me back to my younger days in Texas. The warmth of the decor, the wait-staff, and the atmosphere all contribute to a truly authentic dining... More

We have been to this Mexican restaurant a couple of times as it is close to the Mall of New Hampshire and the LL Bean Outlet. The few times we've been here have stuck in our minds as being very good. The food is about as authentic as you will find in New England. We look for good burrito verde... More
