We sat outside and it was very quiet. The service was amazing! The girl was very nice. The food was a good price.

I've gone to La Carreta dozens of times. It's consistently good food with a fun outdoor atmosphere (also have indoor seating). I have celiac and they were able to accommodate my requests to ensure I had a gluten-free meal (I always order tacos with corn...More

I don't drink liquor, but their two for one margaritas are great! The food is ok and so are the prices. Sometimes they have someone playing the guitar on the outside eating area. It is close to the university for the college students.

Food is not bad, but there are better Mexican restaurants in Hammond. The service is good but the location is not the greatest. Be aware of the train schedule if you decide to sit outside. You are 50ft from the tracks.

The atmosphere was a lot of fun with indoor and outdoor seating. Service was swift, food was good and prices were reasonable. Location is in a neat downtown/old town area that is safe. Plenty of parking.

This restaurant has yet to get even one of my orders correct. The only reason I have gone back is that my dining companions wanted to go and I couldn't talk them out of it. Don't waste your time and money. You can get much...More
