A Great Place for Mexican!

This food was wonderful and authentic. Great food, Great people, a most enjoyable time! The only thing keeping it from a top rating is the atmosphere is a little too congested and outdated. Otherwise, no problems! Certainly worth the visit.

We have been going to La Carreta for several years and on this visit noticed a sign for a Guacamole appetizer made table side. It was absolutely incredible and so much better than what is normally served when ordered as a menu item. It was fresh and flavorful. We also had dinner and as usual was cooked well and served...

We visit La Carreta when travelling through Manchester, NH. This place is very popular and we have encountered "waits"... But, the waiting is well worth the effort. Our meals have always been freshly prepared and flavorful. Service is attentive and friendly. It's not far from the highway (Rte. 93) if you are going north or south... I enjoy relaxing with...

Always a good, diverse menu of authentic Mexican cuisine. I also understand they make a MEAN margarita. Prices are reasonable, portions generous and a friendly staff.

Great fish meals!! Also like the ground beef soft tacos ala-carte. Great homemade salsa. Excellent tequila list, so request your margarita with your choice. Guacamole is very good. Great restaurant to relax and enjoy the food.

My husband and I were very excited to try this restaurant, as it looks interesting and has an extensive menu. We were seated and offered drinks and chips with salsa. My husband had the Mexican Enchiladas and I had the Veracruz Plate. My husband's meal was good and mine would have been, if it had less salt in it. Too... More

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
