Delicious tex/mex in a comfortable atmosphere

The service was quick and efficient. There were chips and salsa waiting for us at the table when we were seated. The shrimp quesadilla was delicious, and the menu offers a wide variety of choices. Recommended.

We've been going to La Carreta in Nashua for many years. Can't believe I haven't reviewed it yet. It has been consistently good all these years. We enjoy the true Mexican, as opposed to Tex-Mex or faux Mexican either of which is available at other establishments. Service is consistently good. We've had many different folks over the years, but always... More

We love this place. It's one of our favorite text mex places to eat in the area. Lunch specials are awesome too. Prices are good for what you get. Quality food. Very consistent.

Went to La Carreta in Nashua for after work drinks/eats last week, and wanted to sit in the bar area. Since all the tables and seats at the bar were occupied, we decided to order a drink and wait for something to open up. We were talking to the bartender and one of the servers, so they knew we were... More

This place doesn't take reservations....but they will if you have a group. This place doesn't give separate checks to groups.........but they will if you ask. This place is always busy and no wonder! The food is fresh and delicious, always served hot (temperature) and never served hot (spicy). And reasonable! The prices have only gone up a couple of bucks...in... More

I placed an order for take-out and one of the items was a burrito. I specifically asked for guacamole in the burrito and the hostess whom took the order repeated back to me and made a note for the cook. When I picked up my order the hostess retrieved it and again stated that there was guacamole in the burrito.... More

We have been dining at La Carreta for a number of years, and there are no other Mexican restaurants that can top this place. Always a delight to dine there. K & S

if you want good Tex-Mex, LaCarreta is the place to go. Margarita's are top notch and the food is great. It's always crowded but waits for a table is usually pretty short. The bar area is small and tough to get a seat bu worth the wait when you get your margarita. The reason for 4 stars vs 5 is... More

The menu didn't clearly state that the enchilada dish I ordered was made with Corn tortillas instead of Flour tortillas. This may have been an error on my part. Nevertheless, the manager was sent over by the waiter and he was more than accommodating. He allowed me to order another dish at no charge!
