Great salsa

This is a great restaurant for Mexican food and wonderful drinks! Their salsa is the best I've had in this area. The drinks are ample so if you are not a big drinker be sure & go with the small size. I love that you can also get tasty vegetables with your meal when you are trying to eat a... read more

This is one of our family favorites in town. Our 4 boys love this place and the guys know us well. All of the food is great. The service is quick which is great with kids! A must in Vincennes!

I've eaten here several times and each time, the staff are friendly and very efficient. The food is always hot and the beer is very cold. They have excellent mixed drinks too and their appetizers are wonderful as well. Upon being seated, your waiter/waitress will bring your table one or more baskets of chips and salsa. I believe it is... More

La Carreta has consistently impressed us with their food choices, often adding new items. Portions are generous and service is exceptional. Tonight we had Fajitas el Corral and Camarones en Cancun. Both were delicious and sizzling hot when Javier served them. He also discreetly monitored our table, even closing the blinds on a window when the sun shone in my... More

Truly feels authentic, as you listen to Mexican music and eat the ample plates of great food. We've eaten here twice in the past month, and each time, we felt the food was a good value and tasty. Sadly, the last time we were there, no flan was available, but I'll try again soon. We'll be back, most definitely.

We were asked by some friends to have dinner with them a few months ago at La Carreta. We have been hooked ever since that first time. We live 45 minutes away but have been going at least once a month. Absolutely, love the Peach Margarita and the food is fantastic, the wait staff is always fun and know us... More

Their carnitas special is amazing if you love pork. The steak is actually thick cut, not the thin cheap stuff that gets overcooked in a flash. Their liquor selection goes all the way to their ceiling, literally, and I've never had a better margarita than the one from there. All of this accompanied with a friendly staff that goes above...

Working in the area and stopped here for Mexican food. I found a good salsa and chips to start. The food was served quickly and was very good, the service was also very good and never had to wait for a refill of my drink. I'll be back.

The service was great (Carlos) fast and very friendly. Flavorful and fresh tasting larger portions. I have to agree the margaritas are great here. Right across the street from the hotel in the shopping center.

This is the place to go if you are looking for a margarita and great mexican food. You can get up to a 60 oz margarita by yourself, or a 256 oz (2 gallon) if you are with friends. The food is pretty good and the only place to get a margarita in town!
