I love going to Carretta! It is always consistently good, the dishes are plentiful and full of flavor, the staff is friendly and the margarita's are perfect! I highly recommend Carretta, but do know, because it is so good, it can be crowded, especially on a weekend night.

Visited this restaurant for lunch with a friend. I really wanted to give this place an outstanding review, as I the far past this place has always been outstanding BUT somehow today the food was just not that special. Let me go thru the good stuff and get back to the food later. This place is on a busy road... More

No matter what night we go there is a line out the door to get a table. My parents know half the staff and ask about their kids. They always get the Carne Asada. It's thin and done so tender you can cut it with your fork. Great mexican in the north.

As a native of SoCal, I grew up on Mexican food. La Carreta would fit right in. The service is great, the food is terrific and the people are wonderful. I've been eating there several times a month for 14 years and it never disappoints.

Victor will make your La Carreta experience that much more. He's polite and timely with everything while you are in his care. The food is by far the best Mexican around and you will not wait more than 10 min for your food. Chips and salsa are the best!

I've been going to La Carreta for almost fifteen years and they've been consistently exceptional in quality, price and service! I can't vouch for authenticity but seems like the real thing to me

I do work in quite a few restaurants and this one is one of the cleanest I have seen. They are so efficient and the service is excellent. Plenty of meat in all the dishes. As close to real Mexican food as you can get in the Northeast.

This is a typical Mexican restaurant. The food is good, but not outstanding. The menu is extensive and salsa and chips are served while you wait for your order. Service is good and fast. I would recommend this restaurant for a quick, cheap, and good Mexican restaurant.
