No one came forever. Then they took our drink order, returned with drinks and took order. Appetizer arrives by a different waiter and not two minutes after our dinners arrive!!!! Are you kidding me???? We sent the dinners back so of course they sat baking under the heat lamp the whole time. Then we couldn't get anyone to bring us... More

Was at the Nashua location today, last week and the week before that. Has been weekly, but..... Been going to the restaurant for MANY years, since they opened in Nashua. Also hit the one in Derry and also further north. I have liked it in general, but I have sent a question to management via their website twice in 1.5... More

I am not a Mexican food lover, but my husband and friends all are. While dining at LaCarreta a few times in the past, I did enjoy the quesadillas but as I said, I do not like Mexican cuisine. I finally did try the Nachos Sante Fe and couldn't believe how delicious they were. The marinated steak and chicken (and... More

Excellent food and a good value, but if there are people standing outside, you got there to late and expect a wait! If your not on the verge of starvation, it is worth a 30-45 min wait, but longer I may pass, and would also pass if your hungry, there are other restaurants near by. Also parking is at a... More

Great Mexican food, I especially like the Grande Burrito. Great service in Nashua as well as the Derry NH location.

There are two primary Mexican restaurants in town and La Carreta is hands down the freshest, friendliest, most affordable, authentic Mexican restaurant you will ever get to eat at in the North East! The staff is super friendly and prompt, their free chips and salsa are to die for and the meals...they are so flavorful and fresh that it makes... More

Love this restaurant! Always very fast service, but the food is consistently high quality. You can never go wrong. The only challenge is it's no secret so it's always crowded. Go early or be prepared to wait.

We love the food and service here!! There are other locations but I think the food and service is the best in Nashua. We have a family that eats very different foods from one another but they all can find something they like on the menu, even the vegetarian !

If you like good, fresh Mexican food, don't go here. Try Cafe Teresa's in Londonderry, or Los Colimos in Nashua - way better food. I'd even put other chains above this one (Margarita's or Shortys). The meat is fatty, the food is salty and closer to Taco Bell than anything else. We have been convinced to "try again" on 4... More

The service is awesome, the food is awesome, the bartenders will rock your world and the ambiance is .... well .... Mexican.
