Great Food!

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!

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

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.

My wife and I visit the restaurant at least once a month. The food is delicious, inexpensive, and plentiful. The drinks are great, whether a margarita or a 32 ounce draught. Chips and salsa are delivered 10 secs after you sit down and drinks aren't far behind. Service is always great.

After moving back from So. California I was delighted to find la Carretta. Authentic, friendly very efficient staff will deliver great drinks and large portions to your table. This is not Taco Bell or Margaritas.

Don't judge a book by its cover,As soon as you walk into the very pleasing mexican decor and see a packed restaurant you know you are in for a great meal.
