We have been to several tourist areas in Mexico and this restaurant is comparable and even superior to those. Food is fresh and very satisfying. It is on our short list when in Manchester for a satisfying, value driven meal.

Ate here for the first time with family. Son chose to celebrate a promotion here as it is his favorite local Mexican restaurant. They loved the drinks and authenticity of many of their specialties. I'm one who prefers food not too spicy and La Carreta fit the bill! I tried a combo meal that had an enchilada, taco and burrito.... More

We always return to La Caretta - moved away from NH 10 years ago and when I return, the first place I go is La Caretta. The best Mexican food around. Fantastic food and service always!!! Wish they would relocate to Ontario - specifically Kingston!!!

I brought my boys here today to celebrate the first day of school. The waitress, Kimberly, never smiled or greeted us. We ordered drinks and got them pretty quickly. However, it took her over 15 minutes to come back to take our order. Both boys ordered the tacos off the A La Carte menu. My oldest asked for soft tacos.... More

Stopped here at the advice of a local sales rep. Boy, can he pick them! The food was fantastic, large portions, and great margaritas! Good, friendly service as well. I definitely was given a good recommendation, and I pass this on to you!

Wanted some traditional mexican cuisine and came across La Carreta Mexican Restaurant... The decor is classic and not tacky. The food was very good, not unspiced like so many northern 'mexican' restaurant. The wait staff was very pleasant and accommodating. It's close to the mall, but not a mall joint. Try it out!

Love La Carreta! Great service, drinks (you can actually get Negro Modelo either on tap or in a bottle) and super meals, especially the fish dishes.

Had very good Mexican food, loved the Guac they served us. The service was awesome, tried their Tequila shots, that I have never had before. Loved the fact that they have separate sections for couples, and people visiting with their families. Ambiance and service was really nice.
