GREAT Food but average service

The food was fantastic, but the waitress very slow. No extra sour cream, no refills and no extra sauce

We were here for lunch on a Sunday and the restaurant was not crowded but we requested a QUIET table upon being greeted at the door, we were led to a table at the dining room entrance adjacent to a table with several noisy children. We requested a different table and we were accommodated but a few minutes later a... More

this is the place. Huge menu, all the food is great. Excellent service as well. It's on my short list of standby restaurants when I just want to get out of the kitchen. It can get crowded, but they move people through pretty quickly so the waits are not too long.

We tried La Carretas at the suggestion of friends - who just love the place. (In truth we have several friends who really like it). I don't get it. In my opinion this is a case of much ado about nothing! I found the salsa bland... the sauce poured over my dish to be largely tasteless... and my burrito stuffed... More

Ate and had a drink at the bar one night a few weeks ago. I couldn't quite figure out the bartender and why he was in such a frenzy. The bar was busy, but not out of control busy. The bartender was running around like he was losing his mind it and made the evening less than enjoyable! Food was... More

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.
