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.

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!

Love this Mexican restaurant. Food is good, service I'd fast and love the decor. On certain nights there may be a short wait but so worth it.

While stationed in the Army in Texas, my wife and I became addicted to good, authentic Mexican food. Since then, we've vacationed in almost every part of Mexico - the Carbo San Lucas area in the Mexican Baja being our favorite. When we walked into La Carreta for the first time, we thought we were back in Carbo! The first... More

Every time our family visits Nashua we always stop at La Carreta for dinner. We just went today, and although there was a long wait to get in, it was worth it! The food tastes great and it's so authentic! It has an awesome atmosphere and very family friendly!

I've been here twice and both times were really bad but our most recent trip was especially bad. First off, there was a funky smell in the air upon arrival. That should've been a precursor of what was to come. I ordered a taco salad and the meat literally tasted like cat food. I took 2 bites and pushed my... More
