“Great Mexican with outdoor seating and fast service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Very good food, excellent margaritas and nice atmosphere. We've been here with a party of 2 and a party of 20 and have never been disappointed in the service or the food. Plenty of outdoor dining also.

“Typical Mexican Fare And Mind Numbing Margaritas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

As a Hammond native, this is one of our favorite spots to eat and enjoy a margarita during the hot weather. And if you're a railroad buff, the restaurant is just feet away from the Canadian National Railroad line which ends at the port of New Orleans,and if you're lucky you may even see the famed Amtrak "City of New Orleans" passenger train either on its way to Chicago or New Orleans, which inspired Arlo Guthrie to write the famous tune named after it.

“Great Mexican food and fun atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

We always enjoy eating at La Carreta - my favorite is the fajitas (large portion, so always have some to take home for later). The service has always been dependable and food is great. They always have a good crowd of couples, families and college kids - so it appears they have something for everyone.
