Ignore the ugly strip mall location and relax. The food was great, and the margaritas come in massive, heavy glasses that make you feel less guilty for skipping an upper body workout. The wait staff plop down warm chips and salsa upon arrival and it feels like a family run spot... not a chain atmosphere at all. Chile Rellenos were... More

We love coming to La Carreta. The food is delicious and reasonably price. The Mojitos are always on point and you get a healthy portion of fresh chips and salsa to start your meal off. I love the shredded chicken taco salad and chimichanga while my boyfriend loves the shredded chicken nachos. Best part about it is that the food... More

We have never had a bad meal here. My absolute favorite is the alambras . Deliciously skewered veggies like zucchini, yellow squash, red pepper, onion and mushroom and your choice of beef or chicken, served on a bed of rice and a side of shredded lettuce topped with sour cream and guacamole. My husband had the fried chimichanga which he... More

Food is delicious, service is always good, and margaritas are delicious! We always stop here on our way back from Maine for a delicious dinner and travel break. Always good, with decent atmosphere!

My family dines at La Carreta at least 6 times per year. The portions and prices are very very reasonable, and the food is quite good. My personal favorites have to be the margheritas. No one else in Manchester serves a decent margherita.

LaCarreta Mexican Restaurant is an excellent choice if Mexican is what you are craving. Food is absolutely delicious. Margaritas are the best. Be nice to your server as they make the drinks.

We were staying at the Holiday Inn Express and came here for dinner. We decided to sit at the bar. What a pleasant bar crowd. GREAT bartender... he's friendly, but the consummate professional. Margarita was tequila generous! Fajitas were very good. Generous enough to split. We were here as a couple, but this is the kind of bar I would... More

We had dinner here on a week night. There was no wait to be seated, and the service was quick. Everything was very good but nothing unusual. Prices seemed a little high but servings were generous.

I went here on a monday evening around 7:30 with friends. We were told the wait would be 20 minutes but it was closer to 30-40 minutes. They took our order and delivered us food a good while later. By this time we were starving. Luckily, La Carreta delivered and the food was amazing. I'm of mexican descent and it's... More
