“Good Mexican food”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

This is one of the better Mexican restaurants in the area. The cocktails are always great. The combination plates are my favorite, because you can try several different main courses in one meal. I always bring home leftovers beccause of the generous portions.

“Value/Quality is Four Stars”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

This location of the local Mexican chain is in a strip mall, atmosphere is adversely impacted by tight seating arrangements, at busy times not only more difficult to navigate, but get noisy and a little on the warm side,

Tried a combo platter, for less than ten bucks it is definitely a bargain, stuffed with meat I had both a taco and a burrito, served with sides of beans and rice, really well seasoned and served hot! Wife had a taco salad with ground beef (although she ordered chicken) and it was tasty, although watery at bottom of shell. Drinks were cold (beer)and well made (house margarita). Free chips and salsa also served to the table...very nice!

We will definitely go back to this or another location, may try the bar or when it is less busy to make it a more relaxing experience, in this case we were in and out in a little over an hour.

Best Mexican food in NH. I grew up in LA and this reminds me of home.
Taquitos are great! Try Polo Parria too...

“Too bad so sad...”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

La Carreta has always been a fairly decent experience when you eat at the restaurant. However, I decided to get takeout last night and was very dissapointed. The chile relleno was cold and they completely forgot one of my dishes (tacos). Unfortunately I didnt discover this until I was at home 5 miles away, so I was out a whole dish and the one I got was cold. This is very dissapointing because La Carreta is usually pretty solid. Looks like its time to try a new place...
