Pretty Authentic - fun with friends - loud though

The food is good. The decour is authentic. I like that because it's not the same 'ole same 'ole. I would give it a 3.5 Only because it's too crowded usually… not meaning the wait… more like the tables are too squished together. Kind of small margaritas for the price. All in all it is a very... read more

Been coming here since they opened. Have tried many others but nobody beats them for taste and quick service. Their Bar drinks are something to behold. I will return again and again and again...

I went to La Carreta in Nashua this evening with my friends to catch up. We had the most rude, impolite, blase water I've ever had. His name was Brian M. He acted like he was going out of his way to serve our table food and drink. It really dampened the mood. I don't eat much Mexican but what... More

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

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
