Great food, quick service.

My husband really don't like Mexican food but this place is the exception. There is something for everyone. The food was tasty, the waiter was very helpful to give us ideas on what to have.

We have eaten at this location on numerous occasions. This particular evening we each ordered a different dinner combination plate. I like the fact that you are able to pick the filling on most items. This is great especially not being a meat eater. It took a while to get our drink orders in and also our food. Once ordered...

My wife and I go here when we get the urge for Mexican food. I always have the Chicken Enchiladas Mole Poblano. the shredded chicken is is tender and the mole sauce is terrific. They serve salsa and chips when you sit down and the salsa is just hot enough for us...between "Ouch" and hot. We usually buy some to... More

Need a break? Go to La Carreta for one of the best margaritas in Manchester. We like their special barrel tequila. Outstanding.

I lived in the Southwestern US for 6 years in my early 20's. I ate a lot of authentic Mexican food. This is the closest I've found in all of New England. I've been to the Nashua, Manchester, and Derry locations. They're all fantastic.

Never disappointed. Always fresh, cooked to order (heat) and priced right. Good location, plenty of free parking. Easy access to interstate highway.

(Sorry for the caps above - can't input italics.) If you really know your Mexican food you'll know this is not the place to seek it. We spent a great deal of time traveling out West for many years and are fairly familiar with true Mexican, home-cookin' served at small restaurants and stands. We are also experienced eaters at larger... More

I love Mexican food. I eat it for breakfast. I eat it in my sleep. I bathe in salsa. My lawn is made of guacamole. I was near death in Manchester. I hadn't eaten for hours and I was about to explode into a pile of dust. But then I spotted a light in the darkness. It was La Caretta.... More
