(TV Diner) - We stepped right into "Down Old Mexico Way"-- all the way at La Carreta in its pure earthy décor highlighted with terra cotta and cactus. A large bar offered up a great selection of drinks to complement the lengthy traditional menu.
After whetting our appetite with the homemade chips and sharp tomato salsa served in a small carafe, we went for the assorted Botana Grande. Melty cheese blanketed crispy nachos. Fried taquitos solidly packed full-flavored smoky beef in every crackly bite and hot red sauce painted plump chicken wings. Crispy quarters of cheese quesadilla framed smooth savory guacamole and fresh sour cream. A Perfecto Platter!
La Carreta used to be a favorite of mine when I worked in Nashua and I try to stop by when I'm in area. They do "Mexican" food really well without trying to pretend to be something they are not. Tex Mex done well and with a very consistent quality and with a friendly and speedy staff, every visit is a pleasure. Read More
I never cared about Mexican food until I went to La Carreta's with a friend. Now it's one of my favorite places to eat. Just look at the lines and a place to park! That should tell you how good it is!!!! Trust me... it's worth the fight for a place to park.Read More
