I have heard that other La Carreta locations are not as good as this one. This one rocks. So many things to choose from and all authentic Mexican tastes! I particularly enjoy the Tamale and the Chile Relleno! The corn meal breading and tastes of Cumin and Allspice are so savory! If you love Mexican food and don't mind a... More

Give this place a try if you're in the Manchester area. The food is great, and the service is polite and prompt. We were there after 8 pm on a Friday night, there were lots of people but we were seated right away. It's not a new restaurant. The doors and fixtures are a little worn but it's very clean... More

Liked ~ the authentic flavors instead of ovewhelming with spice; good size servings; reasonable prices; food is served as soon as it is ready, so it is hot at the table Neutral ~ our waiter was a bit busy with many tables, but we didn't have to wait long for refills/order taking

We've been goining here since Hooksett was they're only location and we've tried most things on the menu over the years but we've now settled into our favorites. Everytime we go, no matter the location because they're all great we don't even look at the menu anymore, it's just Queso Fundido, Steak & Cheese Burrito and Enchiladas Mexicanas, YUM!

We haven't been to a Mexican restaurant in awhile because my kids aren't fans, so we finally got to enjoy a dinner together. The waiter were efficient and friendly. We didn't have to wait for a table and it was pretty crowded for a Monday evening. Our food came out quickly and was very good. We will definitely go there... More

We have visited La Carreta for lunch and dinner, and have never been disappointed. The food is always fresh and delicious, and the wait staff attentive. We would definitely recommend you give it a try when in Manchester!

Choosing to wait out a rainy day in our hotel, we grabbed some lunch time take-out meals from La Carreta and were satisfied with the taste, quality, serving size and price. While the décor tried to be a bit more upscale, the items we ordered didn't taste any better or worse than the dozens of other strip mall Mexican restaurants... More

I should tell you that I lived in the Southwest for many years so I am very hard to impress when it comes to Mexican food. I really don't care for the food at La Carreta. It is too bland for my taste. On Mondays they have a $3.99 Margarita Special and they are quite good. The service is very... More
