I have been here 5 or 6 times now. I have never been impressed, but the past 2 times I have visited have been terrible. The store was filthy, and they didn't have the excuse of a rush. It was 5 PM on a Saturday, so I doubt there had been a rush at 4:00, so there was no excuse... More

This place was great. This was our second trip here. The food is very tasty especially the salsa...I could drink it, it was so good. All of the wait staff were polite, quick and efficient. Couldn't ask for more.

Arrived to very friendly crew. Was seated promptly. Ordered margaritas which were a bite tart and lacked alcohol. Ordered the tacos found the meat a bit salty. Everything else was pretty good. It's ok for drinks and a quick bite.

Food is bland. Service is slow and wait staff are inattentive. Queso dip was cold when it arrived to our table. Sweet tea tasted incredibly old. Definitely not my first choice for Mexican in Denham.

I have loved the food at Caretta for many years. The service is the best and the food is terrific. The man who owns it is very good to the customers.

The manager will come to the table and cover the gluten free options from the menu, if you let your waiter or waitress know you are sensitive to gluten. That may not seem like a big deal to those who do not have a gluten sensitivity, but for those who do, it is!

We had a great waiter who was very attentive without being overbearing. I had the sizzling ribeye which was ok. It was cooked as ordered just did not have a lot of flavor and had a lot of fat. I expect some with a ribeye but his seemed excessive. This came with 2 small cheese enchiladas and bean soup. I... More

Had the nachos for lunch and they are HUGE! We had great service in an authentic Mexican place. I would go back when I am hungry for this food type.

The food, music and service is very good. I like the quantity and quality for the price. It is probably one of the FINEST Denham Springs has to offer. There isn't a lot of dining in Denham Springs because it's a small city. They do offer alcoholic drinks but it's a family restaurant.
