Went on a Friday night which is understandably a bad night crowd wise. Waited exactly the amount of time they anticipated-40minutes. Service was quick and food was acceptable. Had been here several years ago when our kids were young and they loved it. It had not changed except to be busier.

A favorite. Can be long waits during weekend evenings. Wait staff is friendly and efficient. The food is great. Santa Fe nachos are awesome.

This is authentic food for people who haven't tasted authentic food. Tasted ok but bland. No pico de gallo, no cilantro, no pork at all, no spice.

The house made nachos (warm!) and salsa come out immediately and by the time you finish devouring them and consider more, your entrees will arrive- fast but DELICIOUS and authentic! So many choices too!

Have been coming here for over 20 years ever since I was a little kid. Service is always very fast and the waiters are exceptional. Never a bad meal in the time I've been coming here, always look forward to coming back. Combo #1 is fantastic and the frozen peach margaritas are to die for..

Went for dinner Wednesday night. Food and service were great. Ordered #29 - Tostada, Tamale and a Chile Relleno. They were all excellent. Washed them down with a really nice Hornitos Margarita.

This used to be the best but something changed over the years. It's a very average place now. If you want really good Mexican food in Nashua go to El Colima down on Elm street in downtown Nashua.

My family took me to La Carreta for my birthday lunch. Chips and salsa - got refills, I had grilled chicken quesadilla - excellent, son had burrito, daughter had tacos and husband had beef ranchero chef special - cleaned the plate. Fresh ciliantro in everything, friendly, efficient service. If you want authentic Mexican food, make the trip to La Carreta.

This is the best Mexican in Nashua to be sure. The service is top-notch and the food tasty and plentiful. The only downside is that it is loud. Margaritas are awesome!
