Some of the best Tex-Mex in the area

We eat here whenever we get up to Nashua. Strongly agree with all the other reviews about great food, amazing proportions, good service, lots of choices and lots of seating. Last time had the lunch Veracruz Plate which was heavy on the grilled shrimp (so delicious, not over-powering flavor so you really taste fresh shrimp) and nice and hot. We... More

When I worked closer to La Carreta, a bunch of us from work used to go there often for lunch. We liked it for two reasons: the food was good and the service was fast, so we knew we could get back to work in an hour without having to rush eating. We've been back since the office moved, but... More

My husband, daughter and I frequented here often. Good food for the money. Be sure to come prior to peak hours to get a parking spot and not have to wait too long for a table. Peak hours, plan to wait for a table.

I have found that out of all the mexican restaurants in town that La Carretta by far has the best selection of authentic tasting cuisine. The selections and pricing are reasonable and the staff is really nice.

There are many good Mexican restaurants in the area. But, none as tasty and reasonable as La Carreta. If you're looking for authentic gourmet Mexican food in a truly authentic Mexican atmosphere you have to try La Carreta!
