La Carreta has wonderful Mexican food. I lived in Texas for 20 years and when I found this place I fell in love. They have a great Tex-Mex menu.

Recently had dinner here and found it to be just average. The salsa had little flavor yet the sauce on our dinners was very hot (spicy). My wife found it too spicy to eat without scraping off the sauce. Overall not a very good meal.

Dined here a couple of times in the past and had okay experiences. I didn't want to fight the traffic to get to Superiors that day so I agreed to stop here. How bad could it be?. Service was slow, and the food was mediocre at best and the portions were small. I had to dig around in the burnt... More

It wasn't bad...just wasn't good. Tasted like it came off the back of a Sysco truck. Pace picante salsa has a better flavor. However, still better than Las Palmas.

We really like La Carreta restaurants and the Bluebonnet location is our personal favorite. They have a nice outdoor dining area with a lush cool vibe. Well behaved pets are also welcome in the outdoor dining area, which is awesome! The food is delicious and they have good lunch specials that last until 3pm. They also have a really good... More

I've been in Baton Rouge about 6 month and finally found my " go to" Mexican restaurant. Great food, great atmosphere, great price. I had fajitas and frozen mango margaritas and I wasn't disappointed. The price was well worth it. The service was excellent even with a packed house. We called ahead and made reservations but really didn't need them.... More

Great Mexican food at reasonable prices. Steak and eggs, ceviche, and salads are our favorite foods. I like the friendly atmosohere and the outdoor dining when weather is good

Love this place. The outside seating area is fabulous. We bring our Westie, he loves it. The staff is so attentive. They will bring out a water bowl for our dog. We never sit inside. The margaritas are great, they have $18 pitchers on Sunday & Monday. Food is very good. Sergio, the owner is a very gracious host.

The bartenders are very friendly and the food came out so quick! Food was above average and pretty cheap but the atmosphere and service will have me back for sure. Had guacamole and tacos and couldn't have been happier.
