My husband and I along with a dear friend stopped at La Carreta for dinner and stayed for 2 hours having fun, eating delicious food and enjoying the music , laughter and the festive atmosphere. It is one of our favorite restaurants in Hammond! The waitress was superb! The fountain was flowing and so was the conversation. The food was... More

I came here a couple of times whilst my partner was at her classes in uni. The staff are very friendly and it was nice just to sit outside having a beer and the biggest free bowl of nachos ever! It was very clean and it seemed to be very popular and looking at the food being served, I could... More

Lived in New Mexico for too long. The food was quite passable at La Carreta, but just missed at being really good. That's why I say I'm kinda jaded, as I've had the best, and it takes quite an effort to match up. It is one of the best in the area, and they had a good selection of cold... More

La Carreta's in Hammond is one of the prettiest places to eat outside in the spring or fall. The oak tree makes the patio dining one that is unparalleled by any. The chips and salsa are kicking and so is the Diet Coke.

I have been to this restaurant several times and I have never had a bad experience. The cheese dip is so good, the margaritas are good and if you are trying to choose between the grilled and shredded chicken go with the grilled. They had a live band last night and my kids had so much fun dancing. The service... More

La Carreta never misses, I had never been to this location. They did not disappoint. The Mango Margarita is amazing. I had the shredded chicken taco salad. The lettuce was cold and crisp, while the chicken in the bottom was warm. Makes for a fantastic salad. Service was there whenever we needed anything.

Thank Jennifer S
